2010 Chevrolet Equinox LTZ 4dr SUV (2.4L 4cyl 6A)
When gasoline hit $4 a gallon, I knew it was time to get rid of the crew cab 4X4 and downsize to something else. I got an '09 Vibe GT, too small, for wife, kid and myself. Saw a new '10 Equinox, saw the gas mileage, could not believe it, test drove the new LTZ model, I am 6'6" and WOW, this thing feels like it is the next size bigger in the line of Crossovers. Great comfort, took it on our first trip, Ohio-Iowa, 750 miles one way, packed to the hilt, drove 75-80mph the whole way with the air on, and....... we got 28.5 mpg. I figure if I slowed down a little, it would probably get the 32 MPG, also, the motor is not yet broke in. Nice vehicle, sharp!! I got the Mocha steel, pretty!
gas mileage and the room. I cannot believe that it is a 4 cyclinder. It has way more power than a standard 4 banger, smooth, handling is pretty good too. Brakes bring it to a stop in a hurry. Audio and Video system is top notch, I love the backup camera. Cool stuff.
On the LTZ model, add a friggin power seat on the passenger side.
