Just picked up my 2013 Equinox LTZ and so far am loving it.
I've had many different cars from Chevy to BMW to Nissan to Audi and the features for the price this one definitely provides that bang for the buck.
The only additional option I got on the LTZ was new 3.6L V6 engine and it provides enough get up and go for a vehicle of this size.
Too new to really gauge gas mileage but that isn't one of my main concerns really.
The fit and finish of the interior is great for it's class.
I opted for the two-tone Light Titanium/Black interior and it goes really well.
Love the touch screen radio.
Got mine for under invoice and it definitely can't be beat in this segment for that price!
3.6L V6 engine, interior design/fit & finish, comfortable seats, 8 way power passenger seat, power tailgate, backup camera, touchscreen radio, interior lighting, ride comfort.
I think the front end could use a little redesign as it doesn't seem to mesh with the rest of the vehicle.
Instead of lane departure technology, a side assist technology like the Audis have would be of better use due to the blind spots.
Wouldn't mind seeing an SS model come along to try and compete a little with the other performance SUVs out there.
