Although the 2017 Chevy Equinox is still a solid build compact crossover SUV, it doesn’t differ much from its 2016 predecessor.

The all-new Equinox is equipped with a 2.4L four-cylinder mill that can churn out 182 horsepower and this model is rated as one of the most fuel-efficient of its segment.

There is also a 3.6L V6 engine available to buyer and this is capable of 301 horsepower along with 272 lb-ft of twist power. Both these engines are mated to a six-speed automatic tranny.

The all-wheel drive setup can be obtained with every trim level with the exception of the entry-level Equinox L. However, keep in mind that this increases the vehicle’s weight by about 100 pounds.

The latest Equinox offers a spacious interior and it features a rear-vision camera as well as a 7-inch diagonal color touchscreen display.

As great as these features may sound, many folks are certain the 2018 model will be a better bet. This is because the current model doesn’t come with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto capabilities.

These important tech features will only be coming with the 2018 version and this model will be coming with a nine-speed auto along with an array of competitive specs.

So, will you be waiting for the 2018 Equinox or have you decided to settle for the 2017 version?
