2020 Chevy Equinox vs. the Competition at Our Deland Chevy Dealership
Drivers who want a versatile SUV are immediately drawn to vehicles like the 2020 Chevy Equinox when they stop by our Deland, FL Chevrolet dealership. Like its bigger brethren, the 2020 Chevy Blazer, the new Chevrolet Equinox fares well in head-to-head comparisons with its worthy competitors.
Unlike some competitors such as the 2020 Toyota RAV4 and the 2020 Honda CR-V, the new Chevy Equinox is eligible for multiple engines. The SUV’s base engine is a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine and its available engine is a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder unit.
If the Chevrolet Equinox is outfitted with the base engine, it earns an EPA rating of 31 mpg on the highway. As a Chevrolet dealer serving Orlando, FL, we’re proud to tell you that’s one of the best numbers in the compact SUV segment. It’s even ahead of estimates for competing models like the 2020 Ford Edge, the new Lincoln Navigator, and the 2020 Hyundai Tucson.
When they contact our Chevy dealership near New Smyrna Beach, FL, many motorists say they want an SUV because they want to be able to tow things like a boat or a camper. Although we enjoy bringing “toys” with us when we embark on outdoor adventures, we can confidently tell you that not all SUVs are created equal when it comes to towing.
For example, the new Honda CR-V and the 2020 Toyota RAV4 can tow a maximum of 1,500 pounds apiece. While that tow rating is enough for some small campers, it may not be enough for yours. Luckily, you can turn to the new Chevrolet Equinox, which has a maximum tow rating of 3,500 pounds.
As far as technology goes, the Chevrolet Equinox is a well-appointed SUV. Beginning with its base trim, the SUV has Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, a touchscreen, multiple USB ports, and an onboard Wi-Fi hotspot. For features like Apple CarPlay™, Android Auto™, a touchscreen, and more than one USB port to be standard on the 2020 Honda CR-V, you must step up the vehicle’s second trim at least.
