2010 Chevrolet Equinox

The 2010 Chevrolet Equinox couldn’t have been revealed at a better time. Known to be the car introduced one day after GM announced Chapter 11 Bankruptcy Protection, the 2010 Chevrolet Equinox is probably the car that says the company is finally changing for the better. Based on the designed and concept, that could exactly be the case.

The 2010 Chevrolet Equinox is dubbed as a “CUV” or a compact utility vehicle but one look at the car and you’ll notice it’s actually a mid-range, which is a good thing. The car is spacious and longer than most vehicles on its category. To be exact, the car is 187.8 inches – longer than Ford Edge, Ford Escape and even the RAV4.

When it comes to design, the 2010 Chevrolet Equinox has shed its old design for a sleeker and more modern look. This is another reason why the car is closer to a mid-sized than a compact. The designers opted to move away from the earlier version to present something bold in its category. The interior is also changed as the dashboard is not as imposing like the previous version. The color (grey, black and brown) combination maybe a little bit off but there’s no denying the new design provides the comfort that you need.

Even the engine was revamped since the car will be using four-cylinder engines. It will also be available in 3.0 liter V6 engine with front wheel and four wheel drive options. Six wheel automatic transmissions will also be available.

As a revamped CUV, the 2010 impresses everyone by its bold change. Hopefully, this would be the car that can help the Chevrolet deal with its problem, even for a short while.
