2016 Chevrolet Equinox from Las Cruces: A Fuel-Efficient Family Car

The 2016 Chevrolet Equinox is a two-row compact crossover that is perfect for most families looking for a reliable, spacious and fuel-efficient car. Offered in different trim levels, the Equinox is sure to find a space in your garage.

Driving Performance

After six years since its last upgrade in 2010, the Equinox is finally returning with substantial updates that are geared towards the technology-driven generation. Under its hood is a four-cylinder engine or an optional V6 engine.

The base itself can deliver 182 horsepower. But if you want the best performance, opt for the 3.6-liter V6. This engine enables the vehicle to give more grunt, smoothness and strength in driving. It delivers 301 horsepower, has the ability to tow up to 3500 pounds and can rev up from 0 to 60 miles per hour in just 6.7 seconds.

Fuel Efficiency

The 2016 Chevrolet Equinox has been rated by EPA with 26 mpg combined for the base four-cylinder engine model with Four-Wheel Drive technology, which translates to 22 mpg in the city and 32 on the mpg highway.


The IIHS has awarded the 2016 Chevrolet Equinox with their Top Safety Pick accolade for getting “Good” scores in all tests except for one. The NHTSA, on the other hand, gave it an overall four-star rating. Chevrolet built the Equinox with three safety priorities: to prevent, to protect and to respond.
