Chevy Introduces 2016 Equinox

2-6-2015-2016Equinox

The Chevrolet Equinox is one of the hottest-selling SUV models and this year, Chevy gave this model something extra in the way of updates and new styling. The 2016 model year will make its debut at the Chicago Auto Show on Feb. 12, 2015.

The 2016 Equinox – the 2015 model year is now available at Classic Chevrolet – will have a wider grille and some minor tweaks to update the styling to keep the crossover SUV fresh. As of now, though, because of the great run the current model year is having, Chevy hesitates to do a complete update with a new platform, though that will likely happen for the 2017 model year, according to gmauthority.com.
