New V6, MyLink with Nav Among Highlights in 2013 Chevy Equinox
’Nox Still Rocks 32 mpg Highway with Standard I4
The Chevrolet Equinox is off to a typically strong start in 2012, wrapping up the first half of the year with 110,890 sales that were worth a 15.7 percent increase over the same period last year. Even in June, when rivals like the Honda CR-V and Ford Escape were achieving monthly sales records, the Equinox still managed a fairly robust 20,893 deliveries and 15.8 percent growth rate. But with the Honda redesigned for 2012 and the Ford all-new for the 2013 model year, you had to wonder what Chevy was going to do to keep up its pace. Well, wonder no more: The Bowtie brand has revealed a surprisingly wide range of upgrades for the 2013 Chevrolet Equinox—including a new V6 and Chevrolet’s MyLink Radio with Navigation—that should help one of the biggest of the small crossovers remain a strong alternative for the shoppers.
