This week Chevrolet will unveil at the Chicago Auto Show a refreshed 2016 model that is the new Equinox. This will happen on 12th of February when we will receive more details about the vehicle, since the official released up to date are scarce. With the introduction of the new Equinox, Chevrolet aims to continue to win customers in one of the industry's most competitive segments. The company promised that the facelifted model will keep its value-driven balance of performance, versatility and personal connectivity, and will continue to represent the depth of Chevrolet's strong SUV lineup.

Although there aren't many details on 2016 Chevrolet Equinox, from the released teaser image we see a new front bumper as well as entirely refreshed headlights and LED daytime running lights. Plastic body cladding and new fog lights are also present. Unfortunately we will have to wait a little longer to find out whether these features are optional or standard, in the best case scenario.

As far as engine line-up, there is a rumor circulating that there isn't going to be any change. If this is true, then the new Equinox will retain the powerplants of the current lineup. The base model is offered with a 2.4-liter four-cylinder unit, which produces 182 horsepower (134 kW) and 233 Nm (172 lb-ft) of torque.

The second engine option is the 3.6-liter V6 one, that generates 301 hp (221 kW) and 369 Nm (272 lb-ft) of optimum torque. Both engines are connected to a six-speed automatic transmission. The front-wheel drive comes as no-cost option, while the all-wheel-drive is available.
