Chevy teasing facelifted Equinox for Chicago image

The first teaser image with the facelifted version of the Equinox has been recently released by Chevrolet, as the model will be making its public debut at the 2015 Chicago Auto Show.

The North American based automaker Chevrolet will be officially pulling the wraps off the 2016 Equinox during the 2015 Chicago Auto Show. The model in question is a facelifted version of the current one which is expected to get the “classic” modifications, which will include the LED daytime running lights, a new front bumper, a new rear bumper, restyled headlights, a different design for the taillights, new fog lights and some plastic body cladding to help it stand out.

“In one of the industry’s most competitive segments, the Equinox continues to win customers with its value-driven balance of performance, versatility and personal connectivity. It also represents the depth of Chevrolet’s strong SUV lineup, ranging from the all-new Trax small SUV and Traverse to the redesigned 2015 Suburban and Tahoe”, said Alan Batey, the GM president of north America.

The 2016 Chevrolet Equinox is expected to get the same engine lineup as the current model which basically means that it will pack the 2.4 liter four-cylinder unit, with 182 HP (135 kW) and 233 Nm (172 lb-ft) of torque, along with the larger 3.6 liter V6, rated at 301 HP (224 kW) and 368 Nm (272 lb-ft) of torque. More details on the model are limited at this time and will be announced during the 2015 Chicago auto show on the 12th of February.
