Introducing Chevy’s Exciting New Crossover: The 2017 Equinox


With outstanding fuel economy, peppy performance, a handsome new exterior, lots of amenities, and plenty of versatile space, the new 2017 Chevy Equinox SUV for sale near Roanoke, VA at Berglund Chevrolet Buick has a lot to offer families looking for a capable and stylish crossover SUV that won’t break the bank.

Chevrolet’s family bloodline clearly shows in the Equinox’s fresh, sporty, and contemporary design. The Equinox got a makeover last year and this year’s version further accentuates the Equinox’s appealing looks.


Handsome New Exterior

The exterior is well-proportioned with a wide stance and such eye-catching touches as a chrome-accented, dual-port grille, modernistic projector-beam headlights with available LED daytime running lights, and large taillights artfully carved into the rear quarter panels.

Available rectangular chrome-tipped exhausts and bulging wheel arches that draw attention to the available 18-inch custom aluminum alloy sport wheels show the Equinox’s fun-loving side. This is one SUV that looks just as at home cruising uptown boulevards for a night on the town as it does taking the family to the Valley View or Tanglewood malls here in Roanoke for a day of shopping.


Smartly Styled Interior

Step inside the new 2017 Equinox and marvel at smartly styled, sporty, and amazingly spacious interior. Everything about the cabin of the 2017 Equinox speaks volumes about Chevy’s attention to quality and detail. The design is contemporary, with brushed-chrome accents, subtle two-toned color schemes, and an assortment of convenient features, such as large cup holders, plenty of storage cubbies, and a deep center console that’s perfect for storing electronics.

Plus, the Equinox’s ergonomic design emphasizes simplicity and ease-of-use. Everything from the sports instrumentation and seating position to the placement of controls has been thoughtfully arranged to take the guesswork out of your daily drive. The front seats made from premium cloth or high quality, perforated leather are firmly bolstered in all the right places, ensuring a supremely comfortable drive.

Flexible & Spacious

If you are looking for a crossover that combines a flair for fun with outstanding flexibility, the new 2017 Chevy Equinox from Berglund Chevrolet Buick should be at the top of your list. Whether you need to haul kids, companions, or cargo, the Equinox effortlessly handles your busy lifestyle with exceptional roominess and innovative design.

Some other SUVs seem like you have to be a circus contortionist to wiggle your way into the back seats. But with the Equinox’s exclusive Multi-Flex® sliding rear seats, you won’t have that problem. In fact, when you slide the rear seats back your passengers can stretch out with nearly 40 inches of rear legroom. Or, slide the seats forward when you need more room for more stuff.


Fold down the rear seats and access a substantial 63.7 cubic feet of cargo space that’s big enough to take on your most cargo-heavy assignments. Additionally, the 60/40 split folding rear seats let you configure the seating and cargo space to suit your needs. And you’ll appreciate the convenience of a retractable cargo cover and stretch netting to keep awkward items like groceries in place.

Advanced Technology

Not only does the new 2017 Chevy Equinox excel at carrying people and cargo in stylish comfort, but it also excels at connecting you to the latest technology. While some other automakers may be a step behind adapting to the newest technological advancements, the Equinox is the first SUV in its class with available 4G LTE Wi-Fi connectivity powered by OnStar®. Now you can connect up to 7 devices to a strong onboard Wi-Fi signal so that everyone can enjoy their favorite entertainment, Internet sites, and more.

Bluetooth®, a 7-inch touchscreen display, and available Siri Eyes Free® for iPhone® users add to the Equinox’s impressive capabilities. Make or receive calls at the touch of the button on the steering wheel and use voice activation to read or compose texts. And Chevy MyLink offers a comprehensive suite of advanced features, including GPS navigation, SiriusXM® Satellite Radio and NavTraffic, and access to streaming music services such as PANDORA® and Stitcher Radio.

Fuel-Efficient Performance

On the highway or around town, you’ll enjoy the car-like ride, thrifty fuel efficiency, and spirited performance that the Equinox offers. Chevy’s solid and reliable 2.4-liter 4-cylinder engine features direct injection, variable valve timing, and a smooth 6-speed automatic that delivers a healthy 182 horsepower. Engage “Eco” mode and drive further than ever with up to an EPA-estimated 31 mpg on the highway; an impressive number for an SUV of this size.

Need more motivation? Then step up to the available 3.6-liter V6 that offers a class-leading 301 horsepower, 272 lb.-ft. of torque, and a rated towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds. Merge and pass with confidence as the V6 propels you from 0 to 60 in about 6.7 seconds.

You’ll also find that the Equinox has impeccable road manners with confidence-inspiring handling. The available all-wheel-drive takes on the challenges of changing road conditions and weather to get you where you’re going.

The Latest Safety Features

Whether it’s a quick trip to the store or a long family vacation, you want to know that you’ll arrive safely. Chevrolet understands the importance of safety. That’s why you’ll find the 2017 Chevy Equinox equipped with an arsenal of standard and available safety features. A high-strength steel safety cage, 6 strategically placed airbags, and a standard rear backup camera are just the beginning.
