2016 Chevrolet Equinox Delivers Style, Value & Versatility


If you are looking for a versatile, smartly styled, and feature-packed SUV, your local Chevy dealership near Kansas City, McCarthy Chevrolet Olathe, has what you are looking for in the new 2016 Chevy Equinox.

2016 Chevrolet Equinox

Classy New Look

The recently redesigned 2016 Chevy Equinox SUV delivers miles of style with a contemporary and sophisticated look that’s smart, modern, and handsome. A chrome-accented dual-port grille split by Chevy’s signature “bowtie” emblem, along with large halogen projector-beam headlights give the new Equinox an elegant, bold appearance. More chrome brightwork and oversized available fog lights take the Equinox uptown. Dramatic wheel arches accentuate new 18-inch custom five-spoke wheels for a muscular look. The hood flows seamlessly into the roofline, aiding in aerodynamic efficiency. Large vertical taillights and available chrome-tipped exhausts add to the Equinox’s curbside flair.

Spacious, Versatile Interior

On the inside, the new 2016 Chevy Equinox crossover excels at providing a quiet, spacious, and luxurious driving environment. Attention to detail is evident throughout, with high-quality materials that are a cut above. Distinctive brushed chrome accents give the Equinox’s interior a more opulent appearance, pairing nicely with available two-tone “Saddle Up” leather seating and eight-way power driver’s seat. Moreover, the Equinox gives you the room and flexibility you need for a short trip to the mall or those long vacations. There’s an abundance of storage space for all your needs.

Thanks to the Equinox’s exclusive Multi-Flex® sliding rear seat, you get increased legroom – up to 8 inches – and more cargo room when you need it. Convenient 60/40 split folding seats and up to 63.7 cubic feet of flexible cargo space means you can fit all your gear with ease. With 39.9 inches of legroom (more than a 2015 Toyota RAV4) your crew can stretch out in comfort. Chevy also makes getting to all that cargo space easy with an available power programmable liftgate that opens with the touch of a button. Kansas City residents are sure to love the driver and front passenger heated seats on cold winter mornings.

Fuel-Efficient Performance

Under the hood, the 2016 Equinox carries over Chevy’s lively 2.4-liter, direct injection, four-cylinder SIDI (Spark Ignition Direct Injection) engine with Variable Valve Timing. Efficient and powerful, this engine generates an impressive 182-hp and substantial 172-lb.ft. of torque. It mates to a smooth shifting six-speed automatic transmission for EPA-estimated 22 mpg highway/32 mpg city. Step up to even more power and performance with the available SIDI V6 that pumps out a best-in-class 301 hp with a rated towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds.

The Equinox also offers a capable, secure, and quiet ride, thanks to enhancements to the vehicle’s suspension. To tackle those Kansas City winters, you can order your Equinox with available All-Wheel Drive.

Personalized Technology Your Way

The 2016 Chevy Equinox is fluent in the language of today’s advanced technology. Personalize your driving experience like never before with Chevy’s exclusive MyLink suite of connectivity, entertainment, and communication technology. MyLink uses Bluetooth® wireless technology to keep you connected. Make calls, manage your playlists, get turn-by-turn navigation, and more. Control it all on the oversized, full-color touchscreen display mounted above the center stack.

Chevy is the only automaker that currently offers OnStar® 4G LTE Wi-Fi, allowing you to connect up to seven wireless devices.

The Equinox also writes a new chapter with such cutting edge advancements as Siri Eyes Free for compatible iPhones®.
