General Motors has officially unveiled the all-new 2025 Chevy Equinox, debuting the crossover’s latest fourth generation. Highlights include larger screens in the cabin, additional safety features, and the new-for-2025 Activ trim level, offering a more-rugged setup for outdoorsy activities.
“With more than 20 years of production and three million-plus units sold, Equinox is a long-term leader in the compact SUV segment – the market’s largest segment,” GM states.
Outside, the 2025 Chevy Equinox presents new styling and proportions inspired by Chevy’s truck lineup. Although the new Equinox once again rides on GM’s D2 platform, the wheelbase is a bit longer than that of the previous model, while overall length has also increased. The largest exterior dimension gains, however, are in overall width, which was increased both up front and in the rear, growing 2.3 inches compared to the outgoing model. The styling also incorporates a shark-fin style C-pillar treatment, a design trend expanding across the Bow Tie brand’s lineup. Further details include all-LED lighting and wheel sizing up to 20 inches in diameter via the sporty RS trim.
The new-for-2025 Chevy Equinox Activ features a unique front fascia, all-terrain tires, and an available white roof with a two-tone body finish, as well as blacked-out badging, 17-inch aluminum wheels, a Maple Sugar and Black interior colorway, a standard heated steering wheel and heated front seats, and premium Evotex upholstery with sueded microfiber.
Inside the cabin, the 2025 Chevy Equinox equips an 11-inch diagonal driver information center and a new 11.3-inch diagonal infotainment screen, the latter of which is 30-percent larger than the biggest infotainment screen offered by the current model. The interior also features a new electronic transmission range selector on the steering column, a folding 60/40 split-bench for the second row providing up to 63.5 cubic feet of storage, standard six-speak audio, and available wireless device charging. Chevy Safety Assist is standard, equipping Automatic Emergency Braking, Forward Collision Alert, Front Pedestrian and Bicyclist Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, and more.
Under the hood, you’ll find the familiar turbocharged 1.5L I4 LSD gasoline engine, connected to a continuously variable automatic transmission (CVT) for FWD configurations and the GM eight-speed automatic when equipped with AWD. The four-cylinder engine is rated at 175 horsepower and 184 pound-feet of torque in FWD variants, or 203 pound-feet of torque in AWD units.
Look for the 2025 Chevy Equinox to launch this year, with pricing details set to be announced closer to the start of production.
