2005 Chevy Equinox - Price Quote

Visit Chevrolet for more information on the Chevy Equinox.

Chevy adds another midsize sport utility vehicle to its stable in 2005 with the introduction of the new Equinox. Though smaller and less expensive than the other SUV in the tandem, the TrailBlazer, the Equinox is still very capable and extremely versatile.

The 2005 Chevy Equinox has a car-based platform, but it also uses steel body panels for an added bit of ruggedness. It has an innovative rear seat and a multi-tier cargo configuration for the type of interior flexibility busy families will surely love. There's also one strong V6 engine under the hood.

Available Models
The new 2005 Chevy Equinox is available with two-wheel drive and all-wheel, and in two trims: LS and LT.

Interior Features
The Chevy Equinox sits five people in two rows. One of the most innovative of its features is the rear seat, which has the ability to slide forwards and backwards up to eight inches. In addition, because the rear seatback is split, the Equinox can still carry up to two rear passengers and long cargo items. The front passenger seat also folds flat, further extending cargo room length.

LS and LT models virtually share the same interior appointments, with the LT getting cruise control and map lights added. They both come with air conditioning, cloth upholstery, a center console, power mirrors, windows and door locks, remote keyless entry and an AM/FM/CD player.

Options for the debut year include satellite radio, the OnStar system, heated leather seats, a 6-disc CD changer and an upgraded sound system.

Exterior Features
Both trim levels have a mini rear spoiler. The LT adds fog lights, rear privacy glass, a roof rack and alloy wheels.

The new 2005 Chevy Equinox uses a 3.4-liter overhead valve V6 engine. It produces 185 horsepower at 5200 rpm and 210 lb-ft of torque at 3800 rpm, and is coupled to an electronically controlled 5-speed automatic transmission.

An independent MacPherson strut suspension up front and a four-link coil spring layout in the rear results in a smooth, comfortable ride. The rear suspension has a trailing arm plus three additional locating links to facilitate a low, wide load floor and maximum rear passenger space.

The 2005 Chevy Equinox also boasts the longest wheelbase in its class.

Safety and Security
Equinox is equipped with vented front disc brakes with dual piston calipers and rear brake drums. Antilock brakes are standard on AWD models and available on FWD versions. Traction control is standard on FWD versions equipped with ABS.

Curtain side airbags are optional this year.
