Our spy photographers have scooped various 2021 Equinox prototypes testing over the past 10 months or so and these images show that the SUV looks a little different than the outgoing model.
The alterations start at the front where Chevrolet has subtly tweaked the grille of the Equinox and fitted a pair of new headlights with a head-turning split design. For the most part, the sides of the updated model have gone untouched but this isn’t a surprise as this is only a mid-life facelift as opposed to an all-new generation model.
Rounding out the minor exterior design changes are new taillights, a different bumper, and a single exiting tailpipe.
These images from China reveal that customers will be able to tweak the design of the facelifted Equinox through a series of blacked-out parts, including the front grille, Chevrolet badges, wheels, and wing mirror caps. An RS-badged model will also be sold with many of these same black parts and also a set of quad tailpipes at the rear.
In the Peoples Republic, the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox will be sold with a new 1.3-liter turbocharged engine with 165 hp replacing the 1.5-liter unit of the current model. A more powerful 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder will also be made available with 237 hp on tap.
The North American-spec 2021 Equinox should be unveiled in the coming weeks.
