Combining the all-new available V6 engine and available accessories like the dealer-installed trailer hitch make hauling a lot easier. The ability to tow up to 3500 pounds and added features like Trailer Sway Control make for safer, more reliable trailering. As if that wasn't enough, Standard Hill Start Assist never lets inclines drag you down. It keeps the brakes engaged for a split second while you transition from the brake pedal to the gas pedal, then automatically releases once you press down on the accelerator.
With 18 storage areas that come standard in Equinox, you can bring everything you need on any trip. Equinox combines a center console large enough to hold a laptop with compartments behind the rear-seat doors that are easy to reach for children and adults alike. Add the convenience of side door storage and a power programmable lift gate - that's the recipe for a successful trip.
The 2013 Equinox equipped with the 4-cylinder engine features an Eco button that further enhances fuel efficiency at the touch of a button. Press the Eco button located on the center console and the powertrain reconfigures by lowering idle speeds and changing the shift points in the transmission, reducing the electrical load to the engine and allowing you to get the most out of every gallon of gasoline.
If you're looking for a little more power, Equinox proves to be the most powerful V6 in its class.

Equinox models equipped with the available V6 can tow up to 3500 lbs. with the available dealer-installed trailer hitch, so bring the boat, bring the extra gear or help a friend move because everyone will want to take advantage of increased towing.
