I like the Chevy Equinox. We looked for a croosover for a few months. We came close to purchasing a Jeep Compass but a friend who had purchased a 2006 Equinox turned me on to the idea of purchasing one. I am glad we got the Equinox since it sits 4 inches higher than a Compass. If you are looking for an American made crossover then this is one to get. It has a smooth ride with lots of power. I recommend the LT over the LS as GM put a lot of plastic into the interior. But plastic is easy to clean and cheap to replace.
The 3.4 liter 6 cylinder engine, the rims, the rear tail lights, and the height of the vehicle. Pulled up to a Jeep Cherokee on the highway and looked down on it.
The interior could stand to loose some of the plastic. Other than that it is pretty much good to go.
