2010 Chevrolet Equinox Pricing Announced

Chevrolet has just rolled out pricing information of the upcoming 2010 Equinox crossover expected to go on sale in June. The cheapest FWD LS model will be priced at $23,185, including a $745 destination charge, General Motors said in a statement for the press.

The car will be offered in three trim configurations, LS, LT and LTZ, with all-wheel drive systems available either as standard or as an option depending on the version you choose.

There are two new engines available, both of them particularly focused on fuel economy and CO2 emissions. The 2.4-liter Ecotec unit for instance, delivers an estimated power of 182 hp (135 kW), with fuel economy going as much as 30 mpg in highway mode and 21 mpg in urban conditions. The 3.0-liter DOHC V6 configurations brings out a top output of 264 hp (190 kW), with a fuel consumption rating of 25 mpg in highway and 18 mpg in city.

The car comes with six standard airbags - dual frontal air bags; head curtain side air bags and pelvic/thorax seat-mounted side air bags - as well as with standard four-wheel disc brakes with StabiliTrack electronic stability control and traction control. GM's OnStar and XM Satellite Radio services are also available as standard.

In terms of standard interior equipment, the car comes with standard tilt and telescoping steering wheel, standard driver seat power height adjustment and power lumbar.

"Offering the fuel economy of a sedan with the functionality of a crossover, the Equinox is a superior value for our customers," said Ed Peper, GM North America vice president, Chevrolet.

"Getting best-in-class fuel economy and great storage for less than $24,000 is significant," Peper added. "In fact, the starting price for this all-new model is $1,800 less than the previous generation Equinox."
