While full-size sedans used to rule the market, more Texas buyers are moving to compact SUVs for their ability to deliver the fuel efficiency of a sedan, while also providing the benefits of a larger vehicle. The Chevy Equinox is a great example, as the compact SUV offers up a smaller 1.5-liter turbocharged engine that throttles the Equinox down the road while still achieving fuel economy ratings that exceed 30 mpg.
At Glenn Polk Auto, the 2023 Chevy Equinox has arrived, and we have a stocked inventory ready for you to explore. With a wide selection of Equinox models in the Gainesville area, we can help to connect you with one of the four available Chevy Equinox trim levels in Texas – including the all-new RS trim!
Many of the standout features of the Equinox center around its performance. At the center of it all is the aforementioned 1.5-liter engine, which is equipped with four cylinders, but comes turbocharged to produce V6-like output numbers. At its peak, the Equinox can churn out 175 horsepower, but beyond power, it’s the efficiency of the Equinox that really sets it apart. The engine is capable of stretching a gallon of fuel as far as 26 miles in the city and an astounding sedan-like 31 miles on the highway.
Although it does come standard with front wheel drive, those looking to take the Equinox on various terrains will find that the available switchable all-wheel drive system is a must-have. The systems allows you to take full advantage of the higher fuel economy ratings when the roads are clear, and to turn on the AWD system only when it’s needed. It’s just another way that the Equinox offers pure practicality.
On that note, it’s worth mentioning one of the other features that is causing former sedan buyers to make the jump to the compact SUV class. And that, of course, is space. The Chevy SUV has space for as many as five passengers, but it also maximizes space for cargo. With a 60/40 split-bench seat in back, the seatback can be folded down to open up 63.9 cubic feet of space behind the first row of seats. If you choose, you can also equip a power liftgate to make access to the back even easier.
Everything you love about a sedan, but with the space of an SUV. The 2023 Chevy Equinox is truly the best of both worlds. And here’s the best news. The compact Equinox is now available on the lots here at Glenn Polk. Check out our inventory or simply stop by our Gainesville-area showroom to get started.
