The 2024 Chevy Equinox EV 1LT will no doubt be a volume seller with its estimated $30,000 starting price, however it’s likely that the Equinox EV 2LT will prove to be the more popular trim level over time, targeting the core of the compact crossover segment with popular standard equipment and a middle-of-the-road asking price.
Compared to the base 1LT trim level, which has manual adjust seats and individual LED headlamps, the Equinox 2LT will add the following standard equipment:
- 8-way power-adjustable driver seat
- Heated front seats and heated steering wheel
- Front LED light bar
- Roof rails
- Heated outside mirrors
In addition, the 2LT trim level can be equipped with a long list of features that are not available on the 1LT trim in any capacity. This includes:
- Available Black with Blue Accents interior or Sky Cool Gray interior
- Available 17.7-inch-diagonal infotainment screen
- Available presence-based power liftgate
- Available Adaptive Cruise Control and HD Surround Vision
- Available Super Cruise driver assistance technology
- Available White roof with Blue exterior
- Available sunroof
GM has not yet said how these features will be packaged in the order book for the 2024 Chevy Equinox EV 2LT, although it’s likely certain features will be bundled together as part of equipment packages, rather than sold as standalone items.
The Equinox EV 2LT will also come standard with the front-wheel-drive powertrain and long-range battery. This combination is rated at 210 horsepower and 242 pound-feet of torque, while range sits at an estimated 300 miles. Notably, this trim cannot be ordered with the standard-range battery, which is exclusive to the 1LT trim.
The 2LT 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 2LT with the longer-range battery or AWD, with additional info to be divulged as its official on-sale date approaches.
