GM Authority first captured a prototype of the next-generation Chevy Equinox undergoing testing last September, and we’ve been closely following the development of the model in the United States. Now, the upcoming 2025 Chevy Equinox has just been completely leaked in China.
The Asian country’s authorities have published the official future product statement of SAIC-GM’s upcoming and fully redesigned 2025 Chevy Equinox, scooping the exterior design and main features of Chevrolet‘s new compact crossover before its world debut. This could indicate that the fourth-generation Equinox will be officially unveiled later this year.
The upcoming 2025 Chevy Equinox leak includes real-world exterior photos of the model, some technical specifications and powertrain data, as is customary in official records released by the Chinese government. For starters, the next-generation Equinox will grow slightly at 183.2 inches long, 74.9 inches wide and 67.4 inches tall, while riding on an almost-identical 107.5-inch wheelbase compared to the current generation.
Aesthetically, the upcoming 2025 Chevy Equinox features an all-new exterior design with a raised stance and muscular lines for added presence. The front adopts a large grille with a prominent horizontal bar, which connects the top of the split headlamps and does not include the boomerang shapes at each ends, as we’ve seen on other recently introduced Chevrolet models. Overall, it has a much more robust front end and evolves from the brand’s design language.
Bold trapezoidal wheel arches, a rising beltline and a shark-fin C-pillar define the sides of the 2025 Chevy Equinox, shown here in a seemingly base trim level with 17-inch wheels and no roof rails. Meanwhile, the rear end also boasts a rugged look punctuated by slim, high-positioned and L-shaped taillamps, as well as a sharply-creased liftgate.
The upcoming 2025 Chevy Equinox will be equipped with at least two Chinese-market powertrains, including a base 1.5L turbocharged four-cylinder engine that develops 132 kW or 177 horsepower for base variants like the one in this leak. In both China and North America, the next-generation Equinox is expected to debut later this year or in early 2024.
