Chevy Equinox keeps capability options open for 2014 Wheelers GM of Marshfield, Wis. makes room for new models

MARSHFIELD, Wis., Oct. 30, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Perhaps no greater change has occurred within the automobile industry over the past few years quite like the shift in SUV offerings. As the need for efficiency as well as capability has grown, the auto industry has seemingly merged two vehicles into one, the SUV and sedan, into what we now call the crossover SUV segment.


In the race to see who will become the undisputed champion of this new segment, every year automakers frantically struggle to produce new eye-catching designs, create more fuel efficient engines, and offer cutting-edge technology. As new trends emerge and concepts are born, one particular aspect of this segment has been left by the wayside: capability. For 2014, a large number of crossover SUVs have decided to drop their V-6 available engines and only offer models with a standard 4-cylinder. One company that has decided not to follow this trend is Chevy. Chevy's crossover SUV, the Equinox, is available with the choice of either a 4-cylinder or a V-6 engine, giving car shoppers the freedom to choose the popular crossover SUV design with a more powerful V-6 engine.  The added two cylinders make a considerable difference in terms of horsepower and torque when comparing the two engine configurations. The Chevy Equinox's 4-cylinder engine creates 182 horsepower and 172 pound-feet of torque, which is about average for the class, but when equipped with the 3.6-liter V-6 engine the Equinox is able to boost engine outputs to over 115 more horsepower and 100 more pound-feet of torque.

The increase in power still appeals to a lot of vehicle shoppers, especially those who wish to tow trailers, or just love the feeling of power behind the wheel. Adding confidence to both engine powertrains, the 2014 Chevy Equinox is also available with all-wheel drive, something that is a very desirable option for many SUV shoppers.
