Chevrolet’s next-generation 2025 Equinox is promising modern connectivity and new safety tech, wrapped in a head-turning design.

Now, every Chevy crossover and SUV, including Trax, Trailblazer, Blazer and the 2024 Traverse, is new or has been refreshed in the last two years. Compared to the current vehicle, the new Equinox includes larger screens, new safety features, and Equinox’s first-ever outdoor-inspired trim, ACTIV. Chevrolet will also offer Equinox in LT, RS and ACTIV trims.

Introducing the Equinox ACTIV

Equinox ACTIV features a front fascia, all-terrain tires, and an available white roof for a two-tone finish. Additional ACTIV content includes:

  • Rugged front fascia with vertical grille inserts and gray metallic-finished accents. 
  • Blacked-out badging.
  • 17-inch machined-face aluminum wheels.
  • Maple Sugar and Black interior theme, with premium Evotex and sueded microfiber seating surfaces.
  • ACTIV embroidered on driver and passenger seat head restraints.
  • Available heated and ventilated front seats and rear heated outboard seats, and memory driver seat personalization.

Bodylines Inspired by the Chevy Truck Lineup and 2024 Traverse

The all-new Equinox is 2.3 inches wider than the outgoing model. Additional design details include:

  • Three front fascia treatments – LT, RS and ACTIV.
    • LT offers both standard chrome and Midnight Edition High Gloss Black grille finishes.
  • Squared wheel openings and fender flares.
  • C-pillar shark fin that adds the appearance of motion and a familial resemblance to the new Traverse.
  • All-LED lighting with light elements separated in the front and both vertically and horizontally expanded in the rear.
  • Aluminum wheel choices ranging from the standard 17-inch on LT to available 20-inch wheels on RS, a first for Equinox.

RS features standard black emblems and mirrors, available black roof, wide grille opening, and high gloss finish on the grille bar and lower fascia, with 19-inch Carbon Flash machined aluminum wheels standard.

Revamped Interior with a Stronger Focus on Technology and User Experience  

In front of the driver is an 11-inch-diagonal configurable driver information center. Layered against the driver information center and angled slightly toward the driver is the interior focal point — a new 11.3-inch-diagonal infotainment screen that’s more than 30% larger than the largest screen offered in the current model. It’s the gateway to music, media, maps and other connected services via Google built-in.

The dashboard is pulled away, creating more interior space.

Additional highlights:

  • New Electronic Precision Shift on the steering column eliminates a range selector mechanically linked to the transmission, opening more storage space beneath the infotainment screen, ahead of the center console.
  • Engaging tactile materials and decorative trim with coordinated textures are used in the seats, instrument panel, doors, storage areas and more.
  • Standard heated steering wheel and heated front seats.
  • Available Evotex seating on LT.
  • Folding 60/40 split-bench second row seats, enabling up to 63.5 cubic feet of storage with both seats folded5.
  • Hidden rear cargo floor storage space.
  • Standard six speaker audio system.
  • Available wireless charging.

RS features Torch Red and Santorini Blue stitching on the Evotex seats, debossed “RS” logos on the headrests in the front row, and a heated, flat-bottom steering wheel. Buyers can add available heated and ventilated front seats and rear heated outboard seats.

Safety and Driver Assistance Technology

The 2025 Equinox comes with standard Chevy Safety Assist — a suite of features that includes:

  • Automatic Emergency Braking.
  • Forward Collision Alert.
  • Front Pedestrian and Bicyclist Braking.
  • Following Distance Indicator.
  • Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning.
  • IntelliBeam.

Additional standard safety and driver assistance features include:

  • Side Bicyclist Alert.
  • Rear Vision Camera.
  • Rear Seat Reminder.
  • Adaptive Cruise Control.
  • Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert.
  • Enhanced Automatic Emergency Braking.
  • Rear Cross Traffic Braking.
  • Rear Park Assist.
  • Enhanced Lane Keep Assist.

Equinox Power and Adjustability

Equinox debuts with a 1.5L Turbo engine that produces 175 horsepower and is matched with a continuously variable transmission in front-wheel-drive configurations, or an eight-speed automatic transmission with available all-wheel-drive.

Equinox is trailering-capable, with a maximum capacity of up to 1,500 pounds when equipped with available AWD.

For the first time, Equinox offers RS and ACTIV customers driver-selectable modes, accessed via a rotator on the center console. The driver can select from Normal and Snow on FWD-equipped vehicles. AWD adds Off-Road mode. Drive modes adjust the propulsion system performance to best handle the conditions.

Coming in 2024

The 2025 Chevrolet Equinox will be available in 2024. Additional details, including pricing, will be available closer to the start of production.
