Sneak Peak: 2010 Chevrolet Equinox

Chevrolet provided Motortrend.com with their ‘First Look’ of the 2010 Equinox. They made obvious changes to the exterior, giving it the same grill as the late-model Malibu and Traverse and sharpening up the edges.

 

Mechanically, the base model is equipped with a 2.4L four-cylinder that produces 182 hp and 174 lb-ft of torque. The 6-speed is supposed to equal the former 3.4L V-6’s performance, while producing 21/30 mpg in the FWD, and 20/27 in the AWD. The 2009 model-year gets about 17/24 in both the FWD and AWD.

 

hevy also added an ECO button on the dash that minimizes fuel usage while coasting.

The upgraded 3.0L V-6 steps up to 255 hp and 214 lb-ft of torque. The fuel economy is still increased to  18/25 MPG in the FWD, and 17/24 in the AWD. This is an improvement from the 16-17/24 MPG in the 2009 model.
