If you’re looking for a new ride to take you through the streets of Lewistown, State College, and Bellefonte, a compact SUV might be at the top of your list. They have plenty of interior space and offer an exciting ride. You may be wondering if the SUV of your choice has the towing power you need for every adventure.
The 2020 Chevy Equinox has reliable performance, lots of interior space, and a powerful towing performance. Our team at The Lake Dealerships has created this guide to the 2020 Chevy Equinox towing capacity, so you can discover just how much strength it has to offer.
Chevy Equinox Towing Capacity
Chevy has developed a reputation for producing capable vehicles, and the 2020 Equinox is no exception. It can be equipped with one of two engines, so you get to choose how much towing power you have.
The standard 1.5L Turbo 4-cylinder generates 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque and boasts a towing capacity of 1,500 pounds.
You can also opt for even more power with the available 2.0L Turbo 4-cylinder, which produces 252 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. It can help you tow a pop-up camper or a packed-up utility trailer with its maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds.
To help you get your haul where it needs to be, the Chevy Equinox also offers an all-wheel drive system. It monitors road conditions, and intuitively adjusts output to provide more grip on slippery roads.
To help make you more confident with a trailer in tow, the 2020 Chevy Equinox comes with a long list of safety and driver-assisting features to support its towing capacity. One that will help you line up the SUV and your trailer is the available Surround Vision camera. It will also help you avoid potential obstacles while getting into position.
Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning comes standard. It will alert you if you start drifting from your lane and provide gentle steering assistance to guide you back, making it easier to keep you and your trailer centered.
There’s also the available Adaptive Cruise Control system. It can maintain a variable speed and keep a safe distance between you and the car ahead. It will help give you peace of mind the next time you’re towing out on the open road.
Chevy Equinox Cargo Capacity
If you’re hauling cargo that doesn’t require a trailer, the Equinox has plenty of room for it. Behind the rear seats, there’s 29.9 cubic feet of space. If you need even more, simply lower the standard 60/40 split-fold rear seats to open 63.5 cubic feet of space. You’ll have more than enough room for camping supplies, groceries, or souvenirs from your road trip.
The Equinox also comes with a hidden in-floor storage compartment. It will help keep everything organized and secure.
Finally, there’s the available roof rack and cross rails. If you have bulky cargo, like a kayak or a couple of bikes, it’s a convenient storage option.
