The 2015 Chevrolet Equinox wouldn’t be the first car to come to mind when thinking of a fun track car. Yet the hosts of The Fast Lane, Emme and Nathan, seem to be having a great time taking the midsize crossover for a ride around the track, but in a way you probably aren’t used to seeing.
While driving any car backwards through a track would heighten the excitement, it certainly wouldn’t be something that many found easy. According to Nathan, though, the new Equinox makes going backwards almost as easy as going forward, an important factor for a larger passenger vehicle.
So, the Chevrolet Equinox isn’t necessarily geared for the track, but nevertheless. The 2.4 liter four-cylinder from GM is the same motor Emme and Nathan use in their custom baja Bug, and it’s a newer version of the engine used in the Chevrolet Cobalt Sport model. We’ll take these lesser known similarities as evidence of the Equinox’s versatility. We’re sure the 2016 Chevrolet Equinox is equally capable of performing the driving feat, as well.
