The 2007 Chevrolet Equinox starts at $22,795 MSRP with the LT priced at $23,585. In 2006 both AAA and Parents Magazine chose the Equinox as one of the top family cars in America. The newer models follow in those tire tracks, racking up five-star government ratings for front and side impact collisions.
Thanks to a seating system Chevrolet dubs “Multi-Flex,” both leg-room and cargo space are maximized in the Equinox, which comfortably carries five. All models come equipped with a 3.4 liter V6 producing 185 horsepower (available in FWD and AWD). All-wheel disc brakes with antilocking technology, stablity control, and a five-speed automatic transmission appear as standard features throughout the Equinox line.
Occupants in the front seat are portected by dual-level air bags with the 3LT adding a more comprehensive package including bags in the curtain and side positions. (These additional bags can also be added to lower models.)
The center console of the 2007 Chevrolet Equinox resists water and offers excellent storage away from prying eyes. There are five drink holders in each model and child safety seats are secured in place with the LATCH system. Two power outlets round out the range of features and OnStar, a standard element on the 3LT, can be added to all models. The 1LS has a standard combo audio system but does include an auxiliary jack. In the higher models drivers pick up MP3 capability with the CD player. XM Satellite Radio is optional on the LT models.
