The Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of the 2016 Chevrolet Equinox has both increased and decreased, depending on trim level, compared to the 2015 model, according to a pricing analysis performed by GM Authority.
For front-wheel drive models, the MSRP is up $500 for the base L trim level, $710 for the LS trim, and $300 for the LT trim compared to the 1LT trim of the 2015 Equinox, as the 2LT trim level was discontinued for the 2016 model year. Bucking the increases is the $2,160 decrease in the MSRP of the range-topping LTZ trim.
Meanwhile, the Equinox AWD continues to not be available in the L trim level. Instead, it’s only available in the LS trim, whose MSRP rose $710 for the 2016 model year; the 2016 Equinox in the LT trim is $300 higher than the 1LT trim of the 2015 model year, and the LTZ starts at $2,160 less than the 2015 Equinox, just like on the FWD model.
|Trim Level||2016 Chevrolet Equinox||2015 Chevrolet Equinox||+ / – 2016|
|2016 LT or 2015 1LT||$27,345||$27,045||+$300|
|2LT||Not Available||$29,045||Not Applicable|
|L||Not Available||Not Available||Not Applicable|
|2016 LT or 2015 1LT||$29,095||$28,795||+$300|
|2LT||Not Available||$30,795||Not Applicable|
The Chevy Equinox received several changes for the 2016 model year, including a mild exterior facelift and a re-arrangement of trim levels. The current, second-generation model is expected to be replaced by the all-new, 2017 Chevy Equinox in roughly a year.
