Chevrolet Equinox Wins J.D Power’s Most Dependable Model for Compact SUV
Recently, J.D. Power named the Chevrolet Equinox the most dependable compact SUV in its 2019 U.S Dependability Study. Although J.D Power has conducted their Vehicle Dependability Study for the past 30 years, the process has not changed. This study measures the number of problems experienced by original owners of three-year-old model-year vehicles during the past 12 months. Meaning that a low score reflects a more dependable vehicle, and the 2019 Equinox scored just that!
The 2019 Chevrolet Equinox is available with three different engines! No matter what weekend activities you have planned, this SUV will get you there. The 2019 Equinox comes standard with a 1.5L Turbo 4-cylinder engine that produces 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque, and is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Drivers looking for a little more power can opt for the 2.0L Turbo 4-cylinder engine, which produces 252 horsepower and 260 lb-ft or torque. Additionally, this engine is paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission. In the mood for even more power? Chevy has you covered! The 2019 Equinox also has a 1.6L Turbo-Diesel 4-cylinder engine available. This engine produces 137 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque, and is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission.
