2005-2009 Equinox First-Generation

The first-generation Equinox entered the crossover SUV class in 2005 and was the largest vehicle in its class. It was built on a unibody platform; with SUV styling, but with a car-like driving experience. It was powered by a 185-hp 3.4-liter V6 engine with a five-speed automatic transmission. An upgraded interior and new standard safety features, including upgraded steering, brakes, and handling arrived in 2007. In 2008, the Equinox Sport model became available with a new 264-hp 3.6-liter V6 engine.
