A mid-size crossover SUV, the 2008 Chevrolet Equinox, with trim levels LS, LT, LTZ, and Sport, is powered by either a 3.4L 185hp V6 or a 3.6L 264hp V6. With automatic transmissions that are smarter than most 6th graders, enjoy 5- or 6-speed technology that learns shifting patterns to accommodate various loads and driving conditions. A tap up or a tap down is all it takes to manually upshift or downshift.
Add a tachometer to the easy to read instrumentation and you are ready for offroad. The interior of the SUV is accented with warm wood accents and lusterous chrome. Safety first is played out with driver and passenger dual-stage, and side curtain airbags. Plenty of storage is exemplified by the waterproof storage compartment at your feet.
Transecting the grille, Equinox sports a horizontal chrome bar that incises the space between the vertically positioned headlights. Other stylish touches are available chrome wheels, and moonroof. With aggressive wheel well extensions and brushed aluminum air intakes, the Equinox is a pleasurable sight to behold at the opera or the campsite.
You feel in control driving the 2008 Equinox, with its ABS and skid prevention system. The kids will be well-ensconced with the LATCH system securing them. Whether you experience a flat tire, a lockout, or experience an airbag discharge, the OnStar(2) coverage will be to the rescue. The 2008 Chevrolet Equinox is a perfectly rational choice for families or busy commuters.
