The 2017 Chevy Equinox Performance
The incredible 2017 Chevy Equinox performance will inspire you to take the scenic route on your daily commute. The Equinox is a popular pick for many reasons, but its performance stands out due to robust engine options and terrific efficiency. An expert at Biggers Chevy can give you all the details when you get behind the wheel of this stellar SUV.
There are two engines optional for the Equinox. The 2017 Equinox has a standard 2.4L engine with 182 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque. Drivers have the option to choose a 3.6L V6 engine that outputs 301 hp and 272 lb-ft of torque. This engine requires the addition of the Technology Package and Convenience Package. We suggest this optional engine for those who need a sportier kick to their drive.
Both Equinox engines are accompanied with a 6-speed automatic transmission with either all-wheel drive or front-wheel drive configurations. Because winters can be frigid, we recommend adding the optional engine block heater. This available feature will help the engine warm up faster on the chilliest days.
Both engines come with an 18.8 gallon fuel tank and the efficient mechanics make excellent use of every drop of gasoline. Here are the fuel economy stats:
- The standard 2.4L engine produces an EPA-estimated 21 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway when in front-wheel drive.
- The all-wheel drive configured models have an EPA-estimated 20 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway.
- The optional 3.6L V6 engine generates an EPA-estimated 16 mpg in the city and 23 mpg on the highway when in all-wheel drive.
- A front-wheel drive model shows an EPA-estimated 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway.
