The 2021 Chevrolet Equinox has arrived, offering up new styling and a greater array of safety and driver assist features. Now, we’re taking a closer look at the new crossover in the following GM Authority Live Photo Gallery.
Captured in the range-topping Premier trim level at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show, this 2021 Chevrolet Equinox shows off with a brand-new front end. The grille was reshaped and gets broad, polished horizontal dividing lines for the grille insert, which help to visually connect the new, redesigned head lamps.
The head lamps now draw back into the fenders at a sharp angle, leading the eye rearwards above the wheels. The lower front fascia is also new, and includes additional horizontal styling lines, new fog lamps, and some nice polished trim bits to boot.
The side view is a bit more familiar, with the same roofline, window line, and general proportions front to back. This 2021 Chevrolet Equinox Premier is equipped with a two-tone wheel treatment that looks good against the dark blue paint that covers the body panels.
In the rear, we find a new tail lamp design that does well to bookend the restyled front fascia. The 2021 Chevrolet Equinox’s tail lamps fall in line with the tail lamps seen on the latest Chevrolet Malibu and Chevrolet Blazer, which, as we covered previously, gain a new “Dual Spear” inner graphic. This design cue was initially revealed with the 2019 Chevrolet Malibu, and continues to be applied across the Chevy stable.
As for the greasy bits under the hood, the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox offers up either the turbocharged 1.5L LYX inline four-cylinder, or the turbocharged 2.0L LTG inline four-cylinder for motivation, the former of which produces 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque, and the latter of which produces 252 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. The LYX mates to a six-speed automatic transmission, while the LTG connects to the GM nine-speed automatic.
