What’s New for the 2015 Chevrolet Equinox

The 2015 Chevrolet Equinox has been on the market for five years and its sales have ensured it won’t be going anywhere. It’s in for a few minor changes in the 2015 model year though. Sea Grass Metallic and Blue Velvet Metallic will replace Ashen Gray Metallic and Atlantis Blue Metallic on the exterior color pallet. Chevrolet is also waving goodbye to the spotter mirrors and 19-inch wheels. New features include OnStar with 4G LTE (Basic plan for five years), front and rear splash guards, and a Fleet Free Maintenance Credit.

The 2015 Chevrolet Equinox is available in four trims: LS, 1LT, 2LT and LTZ
