Here Are The 2023 Chevy Equinox Towing Capacities1
The 2023 Chevy Equinox is the sixth model year of the current third-generation compact crossover, and introduces a few changes and updates compared to the fully refreshed 2022 model year. Now, GM Authority is breaking down Chevy Equinox towing capacities.
To begin, we’re going to review the powertrain options. One of the biggest upgrades for the 2023 Chevy Equinox is the introduction of a new engine. As GM Authority previously covered, the 2023 Equinox now comes equipped with a new gasoline engine, the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LSD, which produces 175 horsepower at 5,800 rpm and 203 pound-feet of torque at 2,000 rpm. The new engine replaces the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX gasoline engine, which was rated at 170 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 203 pound-feet of torque at 2,000 rpm.
The Equinox’s corporate platform-mate, the 2023 GMC Terrain, also now uses this powerplant. The new engine is mated to the same GM six-speed automatic transmission found in previous model years of the crossover. FWD is standard and comes with a 3.50 axle ratio, while AWD is a $1,600 option on all trim levels and spins with a 3.87 axle ratio.
It’s worth noting that unlike other GM crossovers, trucks and SUVs, there is no trailering package available for the Equinox. However, trailering provisions are standard.
With that, here are the 2023 Chevy Equinox towing capacities:
