2021 Chevy Equinox Solidifies Security With Achievement of Top IIHS Safety Pick Rating
The 2021 Chevy Equinox has once again shown us here at Jim Butler Chevy of St Louis why it has fared so well at retaining and instilling popularity and loyalty among so many new owners. It was recognized as an IIHS Top Safety Pick, acing the extensive list of crashworthiness tests with a “good” score. During the crash avoidance and mitigation tests, the Equinox was awarded the very top “Superior” rating for its Forward Collision Alert and Automated Emergency Braking systems.
The Equinox is now seeing its fourth model year of the latest third-generation and rides on the GM D2 platform. The engine offering is ideal for the city dweller with a huge to-do list and an Eco-Conscious demeanor, deriving power from the turbocharged 1.5-Liter I4 LYX, which cranks out 170 horsepower and 203 lb of torque. Both FWD and AWD configurations are available. Forward Collision and Automated Emergency Braking keep you safe by warning you when it detects a potential front-end collision with a vehicle you’re following, so you can quickly take appropriate action.
If you are traveling at speeds below 50 mph during daylight, this system works together with the Forward Collision Alert to help reduce the dire seriousness of a front-end collision with a detected vehicle you’re following. Whether you are in the long-awaited weekend fun mode or quickly running errands, the Equinox is so much more than just an attractive passer-by, featuring a cabin with smart features that place you at the exciting center of all vehicle control. We’d suggest the available Jet Black perforated leather-appointed seating for an extra interior touch, while Standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto will integrate your compatible devices, allowing you to stay completely in touch every time you head out.
For the first time ever, you’ve also got Alexa onboard: while you’re on the go you can connect with your smart home devices, rock out to your favorite music, add to your Amazon wish list, or listen to your favorite podcast. The available myChevrolet Mobile App allows you to turn your compatible mobile device into a decked-out high-tech command center that puts the Equinox’s most valuable features directly in the palm of your hand. Now starting your properly-equipped Chevy and locking or unlocking the doors can be achieved with a simple “Hey Google” spoken request.
Solid power, a firm and controlled ride, well-fitted front-seat comfort, and a desirable list of standard safety features all assure the ultimate satisfaction and confidence in your purchase here. Don’t forget to check out the available Leather Package for the LT trim level, which includes black perforated-leather seating, a memory feature, heated auto-dimming side mirrors, and an auto-dimming rearview mirror.
