The drive character of the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox will depend in significant part on which engine you choose. The base four-cylinder, similar output ratings on the base engines in other compact crossovers, but it does not feel as strong on the road. You will the gas pedal floor during a routine merger and overtaking, which is reassuring not fuel efficient. If you are looking for a more authoritative sense, the V6 is definitely the way to go. With 301 horses on tap, this is one of the most efficient engines in any crossover in this price range.
The 2017 Equinox’s handling abilities are nothing special. The steering feels numb and somewhat vague, while the suspension is tuned for comfort favor of athleticism. The upside is a smooth ride that is filled with the silence of the cabin at speed. There is not much “fun-to-drive” here, but the 2017 Equinox’s daily driver credentials are pretty solid.
