The 2017 Chevy Equinox is a very big, compact crossover that has a four-wheel drive which is very efficient, has a lot of space and is fuel economical. The Chevy Equinox previous models were always very well received by the American market, recording significant sales not only in the U.S.A. but even in Europe. So what could possibly come new with the 2017 Chevy Equinox, considering that 2016 was more than well equipped! But like every new car model, even the 2017 Equinox has some new features that deserve to be mentioned and the most important one is the 400 pounds weight reduction. Another significant change is on the seats, which are fabricated in a denim style and the producer promises that they are going to be more resistant over the years.
2017 Chevy Equinox – Design and Colors:
The 2017 Chevy Equinox body design is a combination of the sedan models and the trucks models produced by Chevrolet. The body has that bow-tie aspect of the new Cruze, but at the same time, it looks like a scaled down model of its bigger “brother”, the Chevy Traverse. The front of the car has the new dual-port grille design and the headlamps had been remodeled a bit. The headlights and the taillights, like most of the new Chevy models are equipped with LED technology and the new model received new fog lamps.
The taillights got a new chrome trim and their design has the same two-square look like most of the Chevy models. Considering that we’re talking about a compact crossover, the 2017 Chevy Equinox has a very large interior for its class, making it ideal for a family car, and if you don’t need three rows of seats you can just detach one and use the remaining space as cargo space.
