There weren’t many big announcements at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show, but Chevrolet did reveal an updated and facelifted 2016 Equinox. It’s safe to assume General Motors has an all-new Equinox in the works, but considering the current-generation model’s consistently strong sales, we don’t blame them for squeezing an extra model year out of the crossover with a minor nip and tuck.
As design manager for the Equinox program Jeff Perkins told The Fast Lane Car on the floor of the show, his team was looking to change parts of the car which they felt were most in need of an update. That meant applying a newer version of Chevy’s two-tier grille and updating the car’s lighting elements. The new taillights also slightly resemble the current-generation C7 Corvettes, or perhaps even the Camaro’s, a subtle styling feature which is destined to trickle down onto other future Chevys.
Were sure Perkins has alot of interesting info in regards to a future Chevrolet mid-size crossover , but for now, he has to stick to chatter about the 2016 model. Check out TFLCar‘s interview with him in the video below, and feel free to share your opinon on the facelifted Equinox in the comments.
