The Chevrolet Equinox is due for a mid-cycle refresh quickly, and today we get our very first peek at the 2020 model year crossover. The Blazer-inspired front end pops out, as the new Equinox seems obtaining a two-tiered headlight style from its bigger brother or sister.
2020 Chevrolet Equinox Design
At hood height on top we can see a thin strip of LEDs, then the real headlight modules appear down below. This style indicates a clear departure from the lengthened standard headlight module we see on the 2019 model year car. It’s likewise a bit various from the Blazer because both lighting fixtures are crushed together, instead of the breathing space they’re provided on the Blazer.
Chevrolet will be revamping the front grille and bumper to fit the new headlight style, however it’s difficult to inform much through the coverings. We’ll anticipate to see more of the new style as Chevy gets closer to exposing the crossover.
Another part that captured our interest was the quad exhaust poking out of the rear bumper. This isn’t all that Equinox-like, however it might simply be a new style to make the 2.0-liter turbo alternative look sportier. We’re not anticipating anything like an Equinox SS, specifically with the sedate wheel and tire setup matched to this tester. With all the print camouflage covering the rear style, we believe we’ll see some small changes back there. Viewing as the wrappings aren’t anywhere near as extreme as around front, the changes are most likely to be little.
2020 Chevrolet Equinox Engine
As this Equinox is anticipated to be a 2020 model we anticipate to see it to break cover quickly. There aren’t any reports of new powertrains being on the block currently, however that does not ensure anything. Presently purchasers have the alternative of the 1.5-liter turbo four-cylinder, 2.0-liter turbo-four cylinder or the 1.6-liter turbo diesel four-cylinder.
The diesel versions of the 2020 Chevy Equinox and 2020 GMC Terrain crossovers will no longer be all-wheel drive, CarsDirect reports, pointing out verification from a Chevrolet representative. That does not imply the vehicles are gone totally; rather, they’ll be used with front-wheel drive just. When it comes to the factor, the Chevy representative informed CarsDirect that “reasonably low need” was to blame.
With those 2 AWD diesels gone, a purchaser who desires that really particular mix will have however one vehicle offered: Mazda’s new CX-5 diesel, which lastly made its United States launching at the 2019 New York Auto Show. Mazda’s intro came at an intriguing time, where a couple of diesel holdouts stay, however most of diesels have actually selected to leave the United States market, particularly models from Europe.
2020 Chevrolet Equinox Debut
The existing Equinox debuted in late 2016 as a 2018 model and has actually shown a hit, with sales signing up at 332,618 systems in the United States last year. This upgraded variation is anticipated to get here late this year as a 2020 model.
