The 2024 Chevy Equinox will follow a fairly traditional trim level structure, launching with three ‘LT’ trims and two ‘RS’ trims. Like many other Chevy vehicles, the Equinox EV 1LT will serve as the entry-level variant, leaving out certain equipment to offer Chevy customers a more affordable compact electric crossover with an estimated $30,000 base price.
In the United States, the 2024 Chevy Equinox 1LT trim will come standard with manual-adjust front seats, an 11-inch infotainment screen, an 11-inch digital driver information center and 19-inch machine-face alloy wheels. This differs from higher-end trims that are available with or come standard with the impressive 17.7-inch infotainment screen, as well as power-adjustable seats and 20- or 21-inch wheels. The 1LT also receives some additional equipment for the Canadian market, such as heated front seats, a heated steering wheel and an eight-way power driver’s seat.
The Equinox EV 1LT will also come standard with the front-wheel-drive powertrain and standard-range battery. This combination is rated at 210 horsepower and 242 pound-feet of torque, while range sits at an estimated 250 miles. This trim can also be ordered with the front-wheel-drive powertrain and a bigger battery, pushing the estimated range to 300 miles. Despite being the base trim, the 1LT can be equipped with the available eAWD system as well, which bumps output to 290 horsepower and 346 pound-feet of torque, with range sitting at 280 miles. GM has not said how much it will cost to equip the Equinox with the longer-range battery or AWD, with additional info to be divulged as its official on-sale date approaches.
The 2024 Chevy Equinox 1LT will be the only trim level available for the estimated $30,000 base price that GM has advertised in the United States, and $37,250 in Canada, including the destination freight charge, but without any optional extras, taxes and other related fees. Customers can expect to see the 2024 Chevy Equinox 1LT arriving at dealers in early 2024.
