Residents of Troy, NY, enjoy proximity to the bustling industry and culture of Albany, with a small-town feel and quaint proximity to the Hudson River. The many beautiful natural landmarks to explore nearby, like the Poesten and Wynants Kills, make it a place that’s ripe with adventure. But, it’s also a family-oriented area, with nearly a third of the households containing families. These factors make a compact SUV like the Chevy Equinox the perfect car for Troy residents. It’s a versatile vehicle that offers power when you need it and comfort and cargo for in-town family life.

With seating for five, the new Chevy Equinox is great for a small family, and we know how many parents have been drawn to the Troy area, thanks to its beautiful architecture and safe neighborhoods. What’s also great about the Equinox is that, since it isn’t a full-size SUV, it enjoys a compact size that lends itself to improved fuel economy. Achieving 26 MPG in the city and 31 MPG on the highway, the new Chevy Equinox is ready for long trips and won’t slow you down with frequent stops at the pump. Its smaller size also means it enjoys nimble handling and can easily park in tight spots. Plus, it comes at an attractive MSRP, ideal for young families just starting out.
The new Chevy Equinox is also loaded with cargo space, getting a maximum of 63.9 cu.ft. of cargo area with the rear seats folded. You can also do a 60/40 split-bench fold to get just some extra room, but still have some rear seating available for passengers. In addition to the trunk, you’ll find more storage space under the rear cargo floor. This makes it a great car for family road trips because everyone can pack their belongings with ease. Its cargo area comes in handy after a big day of shopping at the Uncle Sam Atrium, and with an available hands-free power liftgate, you can easily load the trunk when your hands are full. We here at DePaula Chevrolet keep an impressive selection of the new Chevy Equinox models, including all trims, so it's easy to see which one is right for you.
Chevy has some fun updates in store for fans of the Equinox in its 2023 rendition. First off, you can add all-wheel drive to any trim, so you won’t be forced into higher-end models to get this feature. You can get precisely the trim you want and deck it out with AWD to handle all sorts of terrain for a reasonable price. One major change is the new engine. The Equinox will upgrade from the turbocharged 1.5L four-cylinder LYX gasoline engine to a 1.5L four-cylinder LSD gasoline engine. This gives it a slight horsepower jump from 170 to 175 hp, so you’ll feel a little more get-up-and-go in this year’s Equinox and still enjoy the traditional six-speed automatic transmission.
Another major change is the new electronic brake booster system, which will operate similarly to an electro-hydraulic braking system. It’s also said to have better fuel economy and take up less room beneath the hood. But what’s special about this brake system is that it can operate without an engine running, which means it’s ready to swiftly adapt to a plug-in model. Drivers will also notice some exterior color options are gone and have been replaced with new ones. Silver Ice Metallic, Cherry Red, and Seaglass Blue Metallic are out. In their places come Sterling Gray Metallic, Radiant Red, and Harvest Bronze Metallic. You can also find the stunning Blackout Package and the Redline Edition Package on the 2023 Equinox.
If you’re interested in the capabilities and comfort of an Equinox, but a new model doesn't fit within your budget, a used model is an excellent alternative. We carry an extensive selection of more recent Equinox models equipped with many of the more modern features and comforts. Take a 2020 Equinox, for example. It’s got plenty of cargo space, a luxurious-looking and feeling interior, and is just as good on fuel economy as newer models. Plus, it has responsive steering and optional all-wheel drive. Troy residents know how extreme the climate can be here. Winters are snowy and icy, and summers are hot and humid. The all-wheel drive 2020 Equinox is ready to tackle anything Mother Nature throws at it.
Most recent year’s models will also come equipped with the infotainment technology many drivers have come to expect in vehicles. The 2020 Equinox will have Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, so you can use your favorite smartphone apps directly on the touchscreen. It will also have USB connectivity, letting you power up those important devices, as well as onboard 4G LTE-powered Wi-Fi, so passengers can stream their favorite music and podcasts or get work done during road trips. Chevy has also been incorporating excellent driver assist features into more recently used models, so going used doesn’t have to mean giving up peace of mind. Features like automated emergency braking and lane keep assist even show up in the 2019 and 2018 models. With the Chevy Equinox, buying used doesn't mean compromising on important tools to keep you safe and comfortable.
