Continuing the trend of being Chevrolet’s best-selling SUV, the Chevy Equinox spent the last year in the powder room, no doubt freshening up for its 2019 release party. So, what are the differences between the 2018 model and the latest ’19 Equinox? Oh, let us count the ways!
New Safety & Infotainment Systems
In opting for an updated Chevrolet Infotainment system, Chevy has put the MyLink system in the Equinox’s rearview.
Two additional safety features are available on the 2019 Equinox Premier: Adaptive Cruise Control and Front Pedestrian Braking.
- Adaptive Cruise Control is not your father’s cruise control. This system monitors the flow of traffic, automatically adjusting the Equinox’s speed to maintain a safe, preset distance between you and the vehicle in front of you.
- Front Pedestrian Braking automatically alerts the driver and hits the brakes when the system detects a collision with a pedestrian is imminent.
4+ USB Ports
Standard on every 2019 Equinox are two USB ports in the front and two in the back. This setup replaces 2018’s standard one-USB design (front) and 12V DC outlet (rear). An extra two USB ports, plus an AUX jack and SD card reader input can be added on select trims.
High-Definition Upgrades Galore
The 2019 Chevrolet Equinox has done away with the standard-def systems, replacing them with modern HD versions. Now the new Equinox comes with an HD Rear Vision Camera and an optional HD Surround Vision system. An upgraded 8.0-inch HD touchscreen is also new.
Two New Blue Paint Colors
Like most mid-cycle model refreshes, the 2019 Equinox adds some new paint options. In fact, they’ve debuted a delicious duo of ‘em: Pacific Blue Metallic and Kinetic Blue Metallic.
Expanded Package Offerings
A new Lights and Bright package is now available on the 2019 Equinox 1LT model. This equipment group adds 19-inch bright-machined wheels with Sparkle Silver pocket accents, matching all-season tires, LED headlights and taillights, molded assist steps, and a chrome grille (surround).
The LS Convenience Package is now available when building a 2019 Equinox LS. It adds tinted rear glass, an 8-way power driver’s seat, and a 2-way power lumbar setting.
