The 2020 Equinox for Super Dad and Family Fun

There’s always something going on and places to go  ̶ such is the exciting mantra of family life and being a family man. But sometimes you also like taking off the Super Dad cape to go places with your buddies. So whether it’s getting the kids to school through deep snow or taking off on a boys weekend, the 2020 Chevy Equinox is the ideal vehicle to make it all happen during every season of the year.  

After snow blowing 6 inches of snow from the driveway, the main road conditions become just something else that has to be dealt with. Short of undrivable white-out conditions, you can’t let winter stop family activities. You’re dad: you have to make things happen. When you pull onto snowy roads, Equinox uses a traction control system (TCS) or available all-wheel drive (AWD) to limit wheel-spin and enhance traction. Perfect for driving your little Yzerman to hockey tournaments or taking the family “over the river and through the woods” to arrive safely at holiday get-togethers. 

Equinox pulls up to appointments and hotel valets with a well-rounded appearance of handsome and chiseled styling cues. Upfront its impressive chrome-accented grille displays a bold demeanor that says this vehicle is rugged with strong capabilities. LED daytime running lamps and LED headlamps help complete the solid look.

As icicles melt and flowers bloom in the fields, spring fever takes over with a restlessness to go on a roadtrip. After getting the green light from your better half, rally the guys for a fishing trip in May after the weather warms. Or even a baseball weekend getaway to historical Wrigley Field or Fenway Park. Wherever the destination, Equinox will take you and the boys there with fuel efficiency that won’t break your debit card. The available 2.0L turbocharged engine delivers a combined city and highway mileage range of 24  ̶ 25 MPG, whereas the standard 1.5L turbocharged engine delivers a combined city and highway mileage range of 27  ̶ 28 MPG (see FWD or AWD combinations for specific MPG data).

For the blissful, warm days of summer, it’s great to travel up north to the cottage to enjoy boat rides or kayaking on the lake. It’s also nice to just kick-back in a hammock while the kids take off to play in the woods, leaving you and your better half some peaceful, quiet time with the trilling sound of cicadas. Life is good.

For towing small boats and campers, Equinox offers an available Towing Package with  a towing capacity of up to 3,500 lbs.¹ to get small campers or boats up to the U.P., to the tip of the mitten, Traverse City, and all points east and west. 

In the fall, the kids are back in school, the geese begin to fly south for the winter, and it’s time for house projects before the snow flies. Autumn also welcomes back football season, again. For it all, Equinox has 60/40 rear seats that fold down flat to offer a spacious 63.9 cu. ft. of cargo space, perfect for both work and play. It allows you to load construction material on Saturday then pack in the grill, ice chest and brats for tailgaiting with buddies on Sunday.

For home games, one of the best parking lots for tailgating is in Eastern Market. But when it’s time to head into the game, Equinox can hide smaller items like tools or personal belongings underneath the rear floor in storage space for safe keeping. Once locked up, all you have to worry about is cheering on your team.

No matter how active your family’s lifestyle can get, you’re still the one they count on to get them from Point A to Point B. And Equinox is the go-to choice for Super Dads everywhere so they may arrive safe and sound. Its bold design, convenience and safety features makes Equinox the perfect sidekick in any season, any weather, all the time!
