Under the Hood

A second-generation vehicle, the 2010 Chevrolet Equinox LT SUV presents a variety of engine options, including two previously unavailable in this model. Regardless of which one you choose, the powertrain comes with a single, six-speed transmission.

A 2.4-liter, inline-four with 182 horsepower can kick it up from 0 to 60 in as little as 8.7 seconds. The same engine type is also available for the other trim levels, namely the L, Premier, and LS. All of them also come with a six-speed automatic transmission, while the front-wheel drive option is only available on the L trim. Fuel economy is rated by the EPA to be 22 mpg in city and 32 on highway.

Trims and Sub-Trims

In total, there are eight trim and sub-trim levels for the 2010 Chevrolet Equinox LT. The Equinox LT trim, in particular, features four other sub-trim levels, essentially adding more options that cater to your discerning taste, from the 1LT front-wheel drive sport utility, to the 2LT all-wheel drive.

Meanwhile, the interior receives a plush environment, from the driver’s seat up front to the passenger seats in back. Storage compartments have been generously positioned around the cabin to better organize and more easily access to your personal items.

Compartments include the medium-sized center bin, as well as mesh pockets attached to the backs of the seat, where magazines, newspapers, maps and other literature can be stashed.


As for the safety features, the 2010 Chevrolet Equinox LT is fully equipped with airbags, located in front, front-side and curtain-side. A tire-pressure monitor is also available to indicate whether your tires are ready to go or you need to fill them with more air.
