2024 Chevy Equinox EV 3RS In Black: Live Photo Gallery37
General Motors unveiled the all-new 2024 Chevy Equinox EV back in September of 2022, pulling the sheets on a fresh fully electric crossover. Now, GM Authority has caught the new Chevy Equinox EV out and about on public roads, providing us with another glimpse of what it looks like on real-world roads.
This particular model is the sporty 2024 Chevy Equinox EV 3RS trim level, covered in Black (paint code GBA).
Up front, we see a wide, horizontally oriented fascia with a geometric grille section and thin upper lighting bits. A single chrome styling line bisects the hood from the fascia, and also houses a blue Chevy Bow Tie badge.
Moving over to the profile, we see the outline of a charge port in the front fender. Large, five-spoke wheels with a black finish roll in the corners, with the outline of a silver Chevy Bow Tie badge seen in the center caps. The door handles are flush with the body, but interestingly, they’re also finished in contrasting white on this prototype, as is the fin antenna mounted on the roof.
The rear end matches the front with further thin lighting bits, as well as a geometric treatment for the lower fascia. Up top, there’s a trailing-edge spoiler element just behind the white roof antenna.
As a reminder, Chevy Equinox EV range varies between the various trim levels and configurations, with ratings of 250 miles, 280 miles, and 300 miles on the list. GM Ultium Drive motors are matched with GM Ultium batteries, with front-wheel drive equipped as standard, and eAWD offered as optional. Max output is set at 210 horsepower and 242 pound-feet of torque for front-wheel-drive units, or 290 horsepower and 346 pound-feet of torque for all-wheel drive variants.
Under the body panels, the 2024 Chevy Equinox rides on the GM BEV3 platform, while production is set to kick off at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico the Fall.

What is the cargo capacity of the trunk? What about rear seat legroom?
Smaller than the gas version, per gm. I thought EV skateboards were supposed to be absolutely VAST inside v. gas counterparts?
GM hasn’t released all the interior dimensions yet, but outside the Equinox EV is about 7in longer, 3in wider, but 2in lower roofline vs the ICE version. An the EV has a 9in longer wheelbase.
Headroom might be less in the EV vs the ICE equinox, but legroom and hip room should be better.
Cargo behind with rear seats folded is listed as 57cu-ft for the EV vs 63cu-ft for the ICE. The difference is probably mainly due to the 2in lower roofline and sloping roof. The SAE measurement method takes the height of cargo area just above the rear axle to calculate the volume. Would expect “true volume” to be closer, but have to wait and see.
So the Equinox EV length is about as long as the ICE Blazer (~190″)? So will the Blazer EV be even longer? Very confused about this lineup.
The Blazer EV is the sister car to the Cadillac Lyriq, which is 196 inches in length. So it should be in the ballpark of that.
So cargo capacity, which should be an important measure of a sport UTILITY vehicle, is smaller in the EV, despite being 7 inches longer and 3 inches wider, PLUS a 9 inch longer wheelbase than the normal gas version? LOL
And how often do you pack the car to the roof? This will have plenty of useable storage space.
Again, it could be an issue of how SAE determines the measurements. Like the Bolt EV and Bolt EUV. The EUV is definitely larger and has more actual cargo space, but because of how SAE takes measurements, the EUV is rated as slightly less.
Does it come with Android auto or Carplay? Oh wait..no it doesn’t.
Car play and android is standard on all touch screen GM products
GM announced that it was forging ahead with its own software, this was announced a month or two ago.
GM specifically said it will NOT be supported on upcoming EVs – for better integration and organic reasons. Read – we want to lock you in a monthly subscription –
As long as an add-on bluetooth interface works (the way it does in my 20 yr old Lexus), GM can stuff their plan to dig an extra 15-20 bucks a month from my wallet. Just don’t remove the power plug/cigarette lighter jack from the dash.
I really like the look of these.
I’m afraid the ground clearance will be less than the ICE version. That really takes it out of the SUV category. Hyundai and Kia might be the way to go. GM will have you on a reservation list for years at their pathetic rate of production.
I’ve read the EV has 7.6in of clearance.
ICE version seems to range from 7.6 to 8.0 depending on trim (AWD or not) and wheel selection.
So not far off, and maybe different trims get different clearance?
But hardly anything marketed as an SUV these days actually is.
My 2009 Equinox has 7 inches of ground clearance at its lowest point. But I drive on very good higways, so a lower clearance does not affect my driving.
Why Hyundai or Kia? The EV6 and Ionic 5 only have about 6″ ground clearance – they are more like a hatchback, not really an SUV.
Perhaps if you are that disappointed with GM and their vehicles you should be on Hyundai/ Kia Authority site!
Kirk is that you cuz!! We are a GM/Chevrolet family…
I keep going back and forth with which looks better this or the Blazer EV
I like the exterior of the blazer EV better, but the interior of the Eq EV is better, IMO. The Blazer EV Interior seems too busy.
But, I do kinda wish they had tried to better mimic the ICE Blazer exterior.
I actually have the opposite opinion. I like the exterior of the Nox but the Blazer interior looks way better.
Seems like the Nox interior will have too many hard plastics with different color themes.
Only downside is the price of this trim hasn’t been revealed. I’m expecting that 3RS to amount to $45,000-$50,000.
This will be just one more over-priced and over-rated SUV from GM. They claim starting at 30 grand. Sure. Chances are they will not produce any of those and good luck ever finding or getting one. That is if you want an SUV.
Huge pass on this for anything over 35 grand and even that’s way too much in my opinion.
Your post reveals that you cannot afford it.
Being able to afford it and being smart enough to not spend that much on it are two very different things. Yes, I fall into the latter.
Danny Downer do you ever say anything positive
What can’t you afford? Is it any of my business?
There’s a lot that I can’t afford and I’m not ashamed to admit it. But I have a threshold that I stick with and that number just happens to be around 35 grand. However, I’ve had vehicles that listed for higher, but with fantastic leases that made the vehicle way more affordable than the MSRP would have suggested.
What others do with their money is their business. I can and do have an opinion on it and I personally feel that spending more than that 35 grand on any vehicle is just silly at best. Again, unless that vehicle has a very attractive lease to offer which is seldom the case with any GM vehicle. Anyone willing to pay 40 grand or higher for this vehicle (Equinox EV) needs to have their head examined.
GM design team fell on its face again. Looks like the face of a whale shark. 300 miles to a charge….at what? $47k no thanks
300 miles is more than enough for me (it will last me over a month), since I have a photovoltaic storage system and can charge for free. And to drive 300 miles where I live I have to drive in circles or else I fall into the sea which is less than five miles away.
It looks good for the price since every other brand especially the imports, cost more. It will replace my 2009 Equinox.
I like the looks of the far cheaper 2024 Trax so much better.
If GM can hold the line on their dealer markups and the range is as good as advertised, they’ll sell as may as they can make. They’re attractive inside and out. The silly complaints here about slightly less storage space and slightly less ground clearance are just that. These aren’t replacements for moving vans or running the Rubicon.
I think it looks better than its platform twin the Lyric, just wish the door handles were also black on an all black car. Hope they can actually ramp up to meet the anticipated demand.
If you look closely all the parking sensors front and rear aren’t painted black either when they normally would be which means this isn’t a fully finished vehicle, so there’s a strong possibility that the handles will be painted.
I don’t like a black car personally, but it looks so much better in black than the terrible blue on the bottom white on the top 🤢
It’s like Payne Motors took the idea from GM to show the Pika in the worst color possible.
