Chevrolet Equinox History: A Legacy of Trendy Technology and Style
As the beloved Chevrolet Equinox is approaching a redesign for the 2021 model year, this is the perfect time to look back on the legacy of the midsize crossover SUV. Let’s jump back in time to the start of this SUV’s impressive history.
Although it may seem like the Chevrolet Equinox has been around for a long time, it’s a newer member of the Chevrolet lineup that joined less than 20 years ago. In 2003, the first Equinox made its public debut at the Detroit Auto Show. The Equinox was an innovative addition to the Chevrolet lineup since the SUV catered to families who wanted efficiency and compact size, instead of the off-road utility and power that characterized other Chevrolet SUVs, like the Tahoe.
The Equinox bore a fitting name for a crossover. Just as the equinox is the time of the year when day and night are equal, the Chevrolet Equinox is the perfect balance of a sedan’s efficiency and comfort and an SUV’s height and versatility.
Over the years, the Chevrolet Equinox has undergone multiple updates and redesigns to provide drivers with the latest style, safety and technology trends. This continual evolution has given the Equinox a consistent appeal every year and has helped it stand out in the competitive SUV segment. This ongoing appeal will undoubtedly continue through the next phase of the Equinox that will arrive this fall in the form of the 2021 Equinox. You’ll be able to buy this refreshed crossover from Hornbeck Chevrolet, so be sure to call us to be notified when it arrives.
