2025 Chevy Equinox Updated Specs, Features & Available Trims

Published on Mar 15, 2024 by Classic ELITE Chevrolet Creative Team

As we mentioned last week when talking about the Tahoe & Suburban, the 2025 model year is on the horizon, which means more and more new vehicles are going to be getting introduced to the world. One vehicle that we’re beyond excited about is the all-new, next-generation 2025 Chevy Equinox. Chevrolet unveiled this beauty back in January, and we couldn’t be more stoked for its arrival. Officially entering its fourth generation since inception back for 2005, we’re also celebrating its 20th anniversary this year. Read on below to learn about its updated specs and features as well as the three available trims in which it will be available, including one that’s brand new!

“The 2025 Equinox brings to one of our most important nameplates bodylines and proportions inspired by our brand’s truck DNA, also adopted in the upcoming Traverse. It also builds on the core strengths that have earned Equinox tremendous customer loyalty over the past two decades, and made it the second-best seller in our lineup, after Silverado.”

- Scott Bell, Vice President, Chevrolet
