The 2020 Chevrolet Equinox comes with front wheel drive, and all wheel drive. Available transmissions include: 6-speed shiftable automatic.Diesel engine is no longer available.Newly standard safety equipment.Slightly revised packages and options.

Pros

Smooth ride over most road surfaces
Stable and precise handling

Cons
Smaller cargo area compared to most competitors
Wallet-friendly base L trim is special-order only
The base engine doesn't feel very lively
Interior materials quality is disappointing considering the price

Driver-assistance features find their way to the standard features list on the 2020 Equinox: automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane-keeping assist, lane-departure warning, and automatic high-beam headlamps—all previously optional—are now on all models. Further to that point, adaptive cruise control is now included in the optional Driver Confidence II package. Elsewhere in the lineup, a Midnight Edition package is new on LT models which blacks out just about everything that can be blacked out, including the Chevy bow-tie logos. The 1.6-liter turbo-diesel engine is no longer available.

Pros
Spry driving demeanor, relatively efficient for an SUV, plenty of space for people and cargo.

Cons
Base engine lacks power, infotainment display is tilted too far back, high price among compact SUVs.

The 2019 Dodge Journey has dropped entirely off our charts thanks to outdated style, safety, and technology.

Pros
Low price
Seven-seat capability
Good optional infotainment
Versatile interior

Cons
Bad safety scores
Limited features
Dated feel
Underwhelming in almost every way

Dodge does little to make the Journey more competitive for 2019. However, the company has dropped the SXT trim and pared down the lineup to three models: SE, Crossroad, and GT. The change means more standard features and options on the entry-level Journey SE, which can now be had with the V-6 powertrain. Likewise, its front and rear ends have sportier styling as well as new fog lamps and LED taillights. All models are now available with Destroyer Gray exterior paint, among the other color choices.

Pros
Competitive pricing,
easy-to-use infotainment,
lots of storage space.

Cons
Cut-rate interior,
poor handling,
lacks driver-assist tech.
