What makes for an amazing family-size SUV? If you have a family of your own, or at least travel with large groups of people often, then you'll know that the people close to you are everything. So, when choosing a vehicle, their interests matter just as much as yours; they'll be in an SUV just as much as you as your passengers. That said, the perfect SUV for a large crowd will have smooth, comfortable performance, overwhelming safety features, and enough space to boost the convenience found in your vehicle - all aspects that are found in the 2021 Chevy Equinox.
The 2021 Chevy Equinox aces all of these categories excellently, as well as offering much more not mentioned above. With an expertly crafted powertrain and fuel design, you should be more than satisfied with the SUV's overall efficiency. Safety in the Equinox is nothing to scoff at either, with one of the most inclusive safety suites in a modern SUV. This all comes while introducing a level of convenience and space that enhances the comfort of everybody in the vehicle, making the 2021 Chevy Equinox the best choice in SUV for everybody.
Performance is one of the most important features when choosing a great SUV for the whole family. Here at DePaula Chevrolet, we understand that the only way to perfect a family SUV is to make sure that it drives better than the competition and in a way that feels better than anything made before it. We can confirm that the 2021 Chevy Equinox fills both of the requirements in the best way possible. It has an efficiency that saves money in the long run and a design that better standardizes features like AWD to make driving easier in difficult situations.
In terms of numbers, the 2021 Chevy Equinox offers a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine standard with the base model. This is an incredible amount of power given the reasonable price of a 2021 Chevy Equinox. With 170 horsepower, it can manage to hold its ground on those difficult drives in the snowy winter and the rainy spring seasons. Coupled with the SUV's high standard fuel economy of 26 miles per gallon in the city and 31 miles per gallon on the highway, you have a high-performing SUV that saves you money at the gas pump without having to sacrifice the sheer power associated with a well-designed powertrain.
That said, the 2021 Chevy Equinox is an SUV that not only performs in overall performance but is well-versed in terrain versatility. That isn't to say that the 2021 Chevy Equinox is an off-road vehicle, it isn't quite that specialized, but it can certainly perform in more difficult conditions than its competition. With many trims offering all-wheel-drive capabilities to help increase traction on rougher roads, in addition to the better overall performance in inclement weather, this vehicle will have no trouble going anywhere: from the rugged inclines in the mountains to the urban streets of the cities. We understand that family means traveling everywhere, and the 2021 Chevy Equinox is the best possible SUV for wherever you're headed.
In the modern age, safety receives a much higher priority than when SUVs were first being mass-produced. This largely makes sense - in a family SUV, the safety of everybody in the vehicle is of utmost importance as these are the most important people in your life. Here at DePaula Chevrolet, we understand that an unsafe SUV will not stand, and that is why we recommend the 2021 Chevy Equinox to anybody looking to keep their family protected.
The 2021 Chevy Equinox offers one of the most comprehensive safety suites in a modern, family SUV, with favorites like automatic emergency braking and a standard rear-view camera. One of the most intelligent choices of standard technology in the 2021 Chevy Equinox is IntelliBeam headlights. This innovative feature standard in all trims automatically turns the vehicle's high-beams on and off by constantly scanning the surrounding road conditions. This takes the hassle of managing the lights off of the driver during one of the most dangerous times of day, making the road safer for the family and anybody else on the road.
These aren't the only standard safety features found in the 2021 Chevy Equinox; the safety suite of the small SUV has a half dozen advanced technologies that are found in the standard model. While the IntelliBeam headlights are a very innovative choice in night-driving technology, there are plenty of choices that make driving more intuitive: such as the unique following distance indicator, which monitors the distance between your vehicle and the vehicle in front of you. Following distance is one of the most underestimated concerns on the road, and a rather large portion of the annual accidents are attributed to improper distance management. You owe it to your family to ensure that even the most seemingly unimportant situations are secure, and the 2021 Chevy Equinox does this by implementing design choices like the following distance indicator and IntelliBeam system.
Of course, this is only one portion of driver safety that should be considered: when it comes down to it, some of the safety is reliant on the vehicle, and other accidents occur because of bad driving habits in younger drivers. The 2021 Chevy Equinox avoids accidents in a unique way because it introduces a system that is almost unseen in privately-owned SUVs. This is because of the inclusion of Chevy's Teen Driver Assistance system, which is a specialized driving mode connected to a new driver's key fob to track their learning. This system revolutionizes safety in a vehicle in the long-run by targeting bad driving habits at their source; new drivers will receive an in-vehicle driving report when they drive, helping to give them advice on how they can drive more efficiently.
The value of convenience in a family SUV cannot be underestimated, although it tends to take the backburner when considered against features like performance and safety. Granted, these are very important features, but convenience is essential when creating an amazing comfort experience for your family. This is especially the case for large families that need the most space available for those long weekend trips. Here at DePaula Chevrolet, we understand that space and convenience in an SUV are an asset that cannot be ignored, and that's why we believe the 2021 Chevy Equinox makes a great family vehicle.
First and foremost, the 2021 Chevy Equinox offers plenty of cargo space. With 63.9 cubic feet of cargo space, there is more than enough space to fit whatever your family is going to need for the trip ahead. The convenience of having all of this space has become the difference between being able to put miscellaneous sports equipment in the trunk freely and having to waste half-an-hour reorganizing. Of course, the 2021 Chevy Equinox skips this game of backseat luggage Tetris entirely, all while giving your passengers their fair share of personal space to stretch their legs on longer drives.
Chevy didn't stop there with the Equinox. Coupled with this massive amount of space, the 2021 Chevy Equinox also offers all of the essentials for making loading easy. All of this starts with folding bench seats in the second row, which can be individually folded flat to accommodate longer, more narrow pieces of luggage. Need more space for a new piece of furniture or to hold an animal kennel that just doesn't quite fit for when you need to bring a family pet along? The 2021 Chevy Equinox can accommodate these and many other tricky items.
Of course, with larger pieces of luggage comes more difficulty loading said items. Everybody has had this issue, the constant shuffling to find the perfect grip on something as big as you are, staggering down the sidewalk trying desperately to reach your car, and finally having to set that item down to open your trunk. It's not easy having to load large items, yet the 2021 Chevy Equinox makes its best effort to utilize the best features to make the process a little bit easier on you: a hands-free tailgate that makes the process simple and straightforward.
