2012 Chevrolet Equinox Review

The 2012 Chevy Equinox is The Crossover that fits your life! It’s fuel-conscious with front-wheel-drive models offering an EPA estimated 32 miles per gallon highway with the standard 2.4 liter ECOTEC four-cylinder engine. The Chevy Equinox offers more rear seat leg room than any competitor. Rear passengers can relax in a standard MULTIFLEX SLIDING REAR SEAT which travels nearly eight inches. The reclining 60/40 split-folding rear seatback gives you flexibility when storing cargo. Available POWER-PROGRAMMABLE LIFTGATE adjusts to your height and can be conveniently opened by remote. Stay organized with numerous storage locations like the Equinox’s deep CENTER CONSOLE DASHBOARD STORAGE COMPARTMENT and rear seat map pockets. Plus enjoy the many features that Onstar has to offer. We considered your safety from every angle. In fact we’ve provided you with an available REARVIEW CAMERA SYSTEM on select models that’s designed to help keep certain stationary objects like bikes in view when backing up. Next we surround you with SIX AIR BAGS. We’ve also included the STABILITRAK Electronic Stability Control System with rollover mitigation to help your vehicle respond to your steering commands and TRACTION CONTROL. The 2012 Chevrolet Equinox get behind the wheel!
