The 2015 Chevy Equinox remains unchanged this year except for an added OnStar with 4G Connectivity across the extended lineup of L, LS, 1LT, 2LT, and LTZ for a starting MSRP of $22,120. With the jolt of the 182 horsepower 2.4L I-4 and 301 hp 3.6L V-6 engines as per trim specifics, the 2015 Equinox towing capacity of 1,500-3,500 lbs and fuel economy of up to 32 MPG retain the holistic proposition altogether. And so does the maximum cargo capacity of 63.7 cu-ft for yet another year. 

2015 Chevrolet Equinox For Sale

The used Chevy Equinox 2015 MSRP can be a matter of a price tag varying from $13,500 to $22,000. Moreover, the lease deal for this 5-seater SUV can start at $382/month for 36 months with a down payment of $2,000 which can increase to $431/month for the same time period if no signing due is paid. 

2015 Chevrolet Equinox Buying Advice

The 2015 Chevy Equinox has not seen any significant extension meaning the predecessors are as capable as the 2015 MY. Therefore, it is advisable to have a 2013 Equinox in your garage as its lease deal is much more affordable and the lower price tag allows you to have similar virtues in all aspects.

Moreover, its optional 301 hp V6 and base 182 hp I-4 try to keep up the spirit riled up without compromising on the practicality and utility ends.

Expert Review, Pricing Analysis and Buying Guide

The 2015 Chevy Equinox has been engineered to be one of the safest SUVs in the space compounded by its grit to tow up to 3,500 lbs and payload from 1,095 lbs to 1,202 lbs with its I-4 and V6 engines. On top of that, its reliability quotient with impressive quality index has been a spotlight for this 5-seater Equinox, thanks to its 86-rating at the J.D Power.  

The 2015 Chevrolet Equinox goes easy on your budget as well in its 5 years specifically as the overall cost to own it does not cross more than the $26,010 ballpark which stands to be as it is as compared to last year. Moreover, it is destined to charge you from $461-$475 at the least for the same time, which is very decent as per standard and also upholds a worthy resale stature. 


Buying Advice

The 2015 Chevy Equinox LTZ is spot-on for your money as it equips you with best-in-line safety, interior convenience, and exterior features. The practicality and further upgradations. is also available for this trim at a reasonable price and it also gives you extra control in its dynamics as compared to lower trims. 

Features
9.0/10

The 2015 Chevy Equinox has now 5 trims available to its end starting with the base L configuration at $22,120 that gets 17-inch alloy wheels and automatic headlights. Spending a cost tag of $24,520 allows you to throttle with the standard SiriusXM Satellite radio, Stabilitrak, and 6-speaker audio unit. 

Coming at an investment of $26,170, the 2015 Equinox 1LT packs in the Chevy's MyLink interface with a 7-inch diagonal color touchscreen and Leather-wrapped steering wheel. While the Equinox 2LT has been given the privilege of Automatic Climate Control and Heated Front Seats for an expense of $28,170. Among all, the LTZ proves to be the best with a reasonable charge of just $31,920 for assets like the Forward collision warning, Leather upholstery, and more.

Engine and Performance
7.5/10

The 2015 Chevrolet Equinox has a 2.4L Inline-4 engine that produces 182 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque. It is available in both FWD and AWD configurations and has been hitched with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Along with that, we have a 3.6L V6 powertrain as well which brings the 2015 Equinox horsepower to  301 hp with a 272 lb-ft of torque. As far as towing capacity is concerned, the I-4 can do 1,500 lbs while the V6 steps up by extra 2,000 lbs. 

Furthermore, the 2015 Equinox does not feel as athletic against its rivals as used to be in the past years due to its lethargic 0-60 MPH of 9.3 seconds and a top speed of merely 117 MPH. On top of that, its quarter-mile dash of 16.8 seconds does nothing better to improve the stance. However, the Dual Flow Dampers have the ability to do that with better damping and wheel geometry stability when equipped with that optional V-6 engine and so do the 12.6-inch front and 11.9-inch rear disc brakes.

In terms of data, the 2015 Equinox horsepower is 14 hp more than the Ford Escape 2015 yet both of them have a similar towing capacity with their base engines. However, the latter enjoys 0.4 seconds faster 0-60 MPH than the Equinox while being $1,880 more expensive. On the other hand, the CR-V tends to have the same towing capacity and quarter-mile sprint as that of the Equinox along with a 0.8-second quicker 0-60 MPH. 

Fuel Economy
7.0/10

The 2015 Chevy Equinox MPG has continued to be a return of 22 MPG in the city, 32 MPG on the highway, and 26 MPG combined with which one marks 468 miles on an average when that 182 hp I-4 roars in sync with that FWD and 18.8-gallon fuel tank. On top of that, one can push it to 601 miles quite easily too, however, the Equinox AWD fades away in its economy to 20/29/23 MPG respectively. 

Call for more power with the 301 hp V6 engine and the mileage takes the even bigger blow and falls to a resistance level of 17/25/20 MPG in the city/highway/combined. Unfortunately, these figures are restricted to the FWD version which can reduce to the 16/24/19 MPG EPA rating as we rev up the AWD variant.

Among all, the 2015 CR-V has the best mileage on offer that beats the 2015 Equinox MPG by 5 MPG on the city streets. However, due to Equinox's 3.5-gallon bigger fuel tank, both of them have the same city range. Meanwhile, the RAV4 also features to be at par in fuel economy as that of the Equinox but falls behind the latter in the combined range by 55 miles, owing to its 2.9-gallon smaller gas tank size. 

Interior
8.5/10

The 2015 Chevrolet Equinox interior features cloth upholstered seats inside the L, LS, and 1LT trims, and that too with manual adjustability all across the rows. However, the 2015 Equinox 2LT climbs up in interior touches with premium cloth and so is the LTZ configuration with its standard leatherette shade along with an 8-way power driver seat. 

Extending its convenience virtues is the automatic climate control and heated front row which have been made available as an inherent class for the 2LT and Equinox LTZ 2015 interior cabin. While the leather-wrapped steering wheel can be handled from 1LT onwards, unlike the common cargo capacity of 31.4cu-ft to 63.7 cu-ft.

As per data, the Chevy Equinox cargo space has a 7 cu-ft smaller capacity than the RAV4 2015 but offers better cabin roominess alongside 2.7 inches broader 2nd-row legroom. The same stays true against the Escape as well where the Equinox specs to have 3 inches better 2nd-row legroom but 3 cu-ft less cargo volume. Moreover, there is a standard Graphic Interface Display(GID) for L and LS editions as well. 

Apart from that, the Equinox 2015 flaunts its Chevy's MyLink interface with a 7-inch diagonal color touchscreen that can be upgraded with an optional Navigation Unit for its 1LT, 2LT, and LTZ variants while the OnStar with 4G Connectivity has been standardized for this MY. Having said that, one can notice the variation of the 6-speaker audio unit for the L, LS, and 1LT against the Pioneer Premium 250-watt 8-speaker Sound System for the 2LT and LTZ.

In the back, we have a couple of single exhaust outlets and chrome strips as well for all which is accompanied by the LTZ-specific power liftgate. Counting on other exterior assets also include the heated mirrors for the 1LT and higher edition besides those rear lip spoiler and exterior mirrors with memory function.

That being said, the Escape has got 1 inch higher ground clearance than the Equinox as well which assists in having easy going through tough terrains.

Safety
8.4/10

The 2015 Chevrolet Equinox safety rating stands at 4-star NHTSA and "Good" by the IIHS for this season. On top of that, its frame has been built to be inducted in the "Top Safety Pick" category by the IIHS as well. Along with that comes a series of safety features that have been mentioned below:

  • Daytime Running Lights
  • Engine Immobilizer
  • Post-Collision Safety System
  • Remote Anti-Theft Alarm System

2015 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2015 Honda CR-V

The 2015 Chevy Equinox and the 2015 Honda CR-V get this marketplace by storm with their impressive overall outplay in payload and towing prowess. However, the CR-V takes the edge against the Equinox with better fuel economy, more thrilling driving burst, and high-end cabin insulation. Its cargo volume also supports its stature against Equinox 2015.

2015 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2015 Toyota RAV4

The 2015 Toyota RAV4 is simply more capable off-road drive and has better power performance as well while keeping the towing skills at par. Though the range for the Equinox 2015 is slightly higher than the RAV4 but the parallel economy balances the budget for both of them in this regard. In terms of interior roominess, one might incline towards Equinox but the gap is of low margin. Overall, one can either of them. 

2015 Chevrolet Equinox vs. 2015 Ford Escape

The 2015 Chevy Equinox and the 2015 Ford Escape have been decent SUVs with comparable utility and cargo capacity. The narration is as it is in terms of cabin spaciousness and fuel economy. But they tend to differ in range reach where the Equinox has the lead and power surge where the Escape wins it for the brand. All in all, both are equally desirable. 

 

Final Verdict

2015 Chevy Equinox undoubtedly is one of the most impressive crossovers in the segment. The kind of interior space 2015 Chevrolet Equinox provides will always be its unique selling point above its competitors. However, the Honda CR-V is a better rival to Equinox because of its Japanese reliability and better fuel economy, thereby, heading our bets on Equinox for now.
