By: Aaron B. Cohen | November 22, 2022

When you have a family, choosing the right vehicle is a multi-faceted decision. Maybe you’re not cut out for the mini-van life, but the need remains for a vehicle that accommodates your family’s hectic lifestyle. Fortunately, your Metro Detroit Chevy Dealers offer a highly efficient, surprisingly spacious compact SUV that takes every aspect of family life into consideration…

There’s a reason it’s Metro Detroit’s best-selling SUV… Chevy Equinox has everything you need to keep the family routine running smoothly. And look good doing it.

Entertainment Technology

When we were kids, iSpy was all we had to occupy long drives in the back seat. Not anymore. With Equinox, your family has full access to the same tech in your home. Stream, watch, listen… whatever you do, Equinox has you covered.

To start, 4G LTE WI-FI1 enables full internet connectivity on the go. That means you can stream music from the driver’s seat while your kids hook up their tablets for online gaming. And with front and rear USB outputs2, power is never a problem.

This is how you Traverse Michigan. With cutting edge technology, tons of cargo space, and advanced safety features, Chevy Traverse is your key to unlocking the mitten state.

But that’s just the start. Because it’s not just about access to your favorite entertainment, it’s about the quality of the experience. With Chevy’s revolutionary Infotainment3 system, you have full control over your devices from a sprawling, centrally located LCD touchscreen. Seamlessly toggle between music, phone calls, and navigation without needing to reach for your phone.

As for audio? Nobody does it better than Bose. By combining active noise cancellation technology with 7-speaker in-vehicle surround sound, It’s like a hi-fi home stereo on wheels.

The road should be a fun place for everyone. So Chevy made an SUV that places all your favorite tech front and center.

Space Efficiency

What’s the use of next-level entertainment if there’s no room for people to enjoy it? Families are all too familiar with the tight squeeze. So the Equinox design team set out on a mission to make space efficiency paramount.

With the rear seats up, the trunk contains an incredible 29.9 cubic feet of cargo space – enough for eight carry-on suitcases. For an always-on-the-go family, this might look more like football pads, dog food, and dance bags.

Upon folding the rear seats flat (60/40 split) – you’ve got a total of 63.9 cubic feet of cargo space. If you choose to fold only one of the seats down, you can still have two kids in the back with an extended cargo region for longer items like (attn: hockey/lacrosse moms), and anything else that might not be optimally shaped for the trunk.

Do the little ones need a car seat? No problem. With plenty of clearance behind the front row, installation is effortless for both front and rear-facing car seats. Equinox’s high-efficient design provides all the room you need for the kids without cutting into your legroom in the front row.

As you consider these options, you’re almost certainly considering the mess that comes along with it. You’re probably so used to your kids tracking mud in the car that you’ve given up all hope of it ever being truly clean again.

Equinox has the solution. With available all-weather floormats and cargo liners, you can protect the soft surfaces of your interior with tough, easy-to-clean surfaces that fit perfectly to the vehicle’s contours. No matter how much of a mess the kids make, a quick hose-down of the mats will be sufficient to restore your interior to its original, pristine condition.

Safety

High-end tech is fun. Space efficiency is optimal. But when it’s your family in tow, it all comes down to safety. Equinox boasts safety features that will provide a new level of comfort behind the wheel, and an added barrier of security for your loved ones.

Equinox’s life-saving safety technology is designed to prevent dangerous situations from arising in the first place. All the things that make parents clench the steering wheel a little tighter – changing lanes, traffic jams, driving in reverse – Equinox has answers for all of it.

The list is extensive. Automatic Emergency Braking4 knows when to stop before you do. And Follow Distance Indicator4 gives you the precise measurement of space between your vehicle and the one in front of you – ideal for freeway driving. And thanks to Lane Change Alert (with Side Blind Zone Assist)4 and Lane Keep Assist (with Lane Departure Warning)4, you have a trusty copilot ready to step into action if you attempt to switch lanes too early.

And then there’s parking. Automatic Parking Assistant4 is your answer to those nearly impossible street parking situations you’ve always dreaded. With a split-screen backup camera4, you can see exactly what’s behind you as you maneuver in reverse, while simultaneously monitoring your location relative to surrounding obstacles from above. Breathe easy knowing your vehicle can do the work so you don’t have to.

The Chevy Equinox is made for the modern family. Its revolutionary entertainment, combined with space efficiency and protective safety features will remind you why you love time on the road – because it’s time spent with the ones you love most.
