The 2011 Chevrolet Equinox comes with more standard equipment than the 2010, but it is otherwise identical. Some people believe the second year of production is the sweet spot because they've ironed out all the bugs but it's still new.
The Equinox has pricing and features of a compact SUV, but it's a little larger, and closer in size to a mid-size SUV. And the Equinox comes with luxury and technology amenities not expected in its price class. In short, it's a good value.
The Chevrolet Equinox offers a choice of four-cylinder or V6 engines. The standard 2.4-liter four-cylinder uses direct injection for more power and better fuel economy. A front-wheel-drive Equinox gets an EPA-estimated 22/32 mpg City/Highway. Lots of sound insulation makes it quieter than most four-cylinders and we think it's a capable engine. The available 3.0-liter V6 is rated at 264 horsepower and 222 pound-feet of torque, but we didn't think it felt much more powerful than the four-cylinder. So we recommend the standard 2.4-liter engine. The V6 does offer Flex-Fuel capability for 2011, however, if ethanol is your preferred fuel.
