GM Offers $1,000 Discount for V6 Equinox and Terrain Due to Shortage of 4-Cylinder Engines
The Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain have been receiving more and more orders lately, but GM can’t face the demand due to insufficient supply of 2.4-liter four-cylinder engines. However, the company’s delaers are offering customers who opt for the V6 models a $1,000 discount. To get an idea of what this means, the V6 powerplant is a $1,500 option of the Equinox LT.
Of course the V6 engine does bring more power, but is also comes with an efficiency disadvante. As the EPA ratings show, the four-cylinder unit retursn an efficiency of 22 mph city and 32 mpg highway, while the V6 offers 17 mpg and 24 mpg, respectively.
