The 2021 Chevy Equinox draws closer to the Blazer in looks and mission.

Pros
Better front end
More sculpted rear end
Standard active safety features
New RS trim

Cons
Interior hasn’t changed much
No advanced driver assistance
No hybrid powertrain yet
Relatively pricey

By:

A refreshed front end highlights the changes to the 2021 Equinox. The makeover brings more distinctive headlights, a new grille design, and updated front and rear bumpers. Chevy also adds an RS model, which includes sporty styling cues such as dark 19-inch wheels and blacked-out exterior trim. Its interior boasts a unique shift knob, red stitching, and black upholstery. The top-tier Premier also has spiffier cabin details, such as French stitching and gloss-black trim on the console.

Pros
Tons of passenger space,
agile on-road behavior,
generous infotainment features.

Cons
Weak four-cylinder engine,
pricier than most rivals,
largest wheel size reduces ride quality.
