Chevrolet debuted their lightly updated 2016 Equinox at the Chicago Auto Show today, injecting some new life into the aging crossover for what is likely the last year it will be sold in its current iteration. The changes consist of some minor touches to the rear fascia, new headlights and taillights and a new front fascia, but have they made the Equinox any hotter?
This update reminds us of the minor facelift Chevy applied to the Cruze for 2015. A similar-looking two-tier grille has been added with a smaller upper section and wider, more open lower segment. Redesigned premium projector-beam headlights are also now present, along with new LED daytime running lamps on LT and LTZ trim levels.
Out back, Chevy has added new dual-element tail lamps, a revised license applique and a revised lower rear element with different integrated exhaust tips. There’s also three new wheel options, consisting of two new 17-inch units for LS and LT models and 18-inch ones (pictured above) for LTZ models.
This may be an extremely minor update, but we’re still curious as to whether you think these changes have made the Equinox look better, or worse. Vote Hot or Not below, and feel free to share your feelings in the comments.
