As the entry-level Equinox trim, the 2008 Chevrolet Equinox LS comes with a stripped-down list of standard features, though it still offers many of the features that drivers consider requirements on any vehicle. Dual-stage front airbags, air conditioning, cruise control, power windows and door locks, remote keyless entry, OnStar, and an AM/FM audio system with a CD player and an MP3 input jack are all part of the package. Options include side-impact airbags and a leather-wrapped steering wheel. However, such options as a power sunroof and a DVD entertainment system are unavailable on this trim.

A 185-horsepower, 3.4-liter V6 engine powers the Equinox LS. The engine links to a five-speed automatic transmission designed for smooth shifting and acceleration, as well as improved fuel efficiency. The Equinox also comes with a large 20-gallon fuel tank, which results in a cruising range of more than 500 miles.

Four-wheel antilock brakes, a gas-pressurized MacPherson strut front suspension, and the StabiliTrak Electronic Stability Control System, all standard, help provide good handling and stability, even over slick surfaces. Drivers and reviewers have noted that the Equinox offers a smooth, comfortable ride even over rough roads and long distances. However, the Equinox LS also displays a certain amount of body sway under hard cornering, according to some drivers. Quality and reliablity ratings are about average or slightly above average for a vehicle in this class.

Stepping up a notch from the entry-level LS trim, the 2008 Chevrolet Equinox LT1 adds such features as a leather-wrapped steering wheel and premium cloth seats to the standard equipment list. Cruise control, power windows and door locks, remote keyless entry, and OnStar are also part of the package, as is an AM/FM audio system with a CD player and an MP3 input jack. Options include side-impact airbags, a power sunroof, and a DVD entertainment system.

Power for the Equinox LT1 comes in the form of a 185-horsepower, 3.4-liter V6 engine, which links to a five-speed automatic transmission. The transmission is designed for smooth shifting and acceleration, as well as improved fuel efficiency.

Drivers and reviewers have noted that the Equinox offers good handing and a smooth, comfortable ride even over rough or slick roads, thanks to such standard features as four-wheel antilock brakes and the StabiliTrak Electronic Stability Control System. However, some have noted a certain amount of body sway under hard cornering. Quality and reliability ratings are about average or slightly above average for a vehicle in this class.

Drivers seeking a well-equipped crossover vehicle that also offers the stability and handling of an all-wheel drive can opt for the 2008 Chevrolet Equinox LT1 AWD. The LT1's on-demand all-wheel-drive system delivers power to the front wheels under normal driving conditions and automatically transfers power to the rear wheels when needed, improving traction on all types of driving surfaces and in all types of road conditions. Four-wheel antilock brakes and the StabiliTrak Electronic Stability Control System also come standard on the Equinox LT AWD.

A 185-horsepower, 3.4-liter V6 engine powers all 2008 Equinox trims, including the LT AWD. The engine links to a five-speed automatic transmission designed for smooth shifting and acceleration.

Key features for the Equinox LT AWD include a leather-wrapped steering wheel, cruise control, power windows and door locks, remote keyless entry, and OnStar, as well as an AM/FM audio system with a CD player and an MP3 input jack. Options include side-impact airbags, a power sunroof, and a DVD entertainment system.

The engine and transmission of the Equinox LT1 AWD work well together, according to drivers and reviewers, providing smooth acceleration and relatively good fuel efficiency for an SUV/crossover vehicle. Most drivers found its handling responsive and its ride comfortable over long distances. As in many vehicles of this type, however, some drivers noted a certain amount of body sway under hard cornering. Overall, quality and reliablity ratings are about average or slightly above average for a vehicle in this class.

Standard features such as a remote vehicle starter system, a six-way power-adjustable driver's seat, an auto-dimming interior rearview mirror, front foglights, and 17-inch Pearl Chrome-clad wheels distinguish the Chevrolet Equinox LT2 from the lesser-equipped trims in the lineup for 2008. Also part of the LT2 package are such features as a leather-wrapped steering wheel, cruise control, OnStar, and power windows and door locks. Options include a power sunroof, side-impact airbags, and a DVD entertainment system.

A 185-horsepower, 3.4-liter V6 engine resides under the hood of the Equinox LT2. The engine links to a five-speed automatic transmission designed for smooth shifting and acceleration, as well as fuel efficiency. Four-wheel antilock brakes and the StabiliTrak Electronic Stability Control System are also part of the package, helping to ensure good handling and stability in all types of driving conditions.

Despite that fact that it's considered a compact SUV (Chevy refers to it as a "crossover vehicle"), the Equinox LT2 offers plenty of interior room, according to drivers and reviewers, as well as a smooth, comfortable ride, even over rough roads and long distances. Reliability and build quality are said to be good, although some drivers have noted a certain amount of body sway under hard cornering.

The 2008 Chevrolet Equinox LT2 AWD comes well-equipped with an expanded list of standard features, including a six-way power-adjustable driver's seat, a remote vehicle starter system, an auto-dimming interior rearview mirror, front foglights, and 17-inch Pearl chrome-clad wheels. A leather-wrapped steering wheel, cruise control, OnStar, and power windows and door locks are also included with the package. Options include a power sunroof, side-impact airbags, and a DVD entertainment system.

In addition, the Equinox LT2 AWD comes equipped with an on-demand all-wheel-drive system, which helps improve traction on rainy, snowy, icy, or muddy roads. The AWD system delivers power to the front wheels under normal driving conditions and automatically transfers power to the rear wheels when needed.

A 185-horsepower, 3.4-liter V6 engine powers the Equinox LT2 AWD. The engine links to a five-speed automatic transmission designed for smooth shifting and acceleration as well as fuel efficiency.

A Multi-Flex sliding rear seat helps ensure plenty of legroom for rear-seat passengers, or it can be slid forward to provide additional cargo space when the rear seats are unoccupied. In fact, with the rear seat slid all the way forward, the Equinox LT2 AWD provides 35 cubic feet of rear storage space, which is more cargo space than the Ford Escape, according to Chevy. Drivers and reviewers confirm that the Equinox offers plenty of interior room, as well as a smooth, comfortable ride, even over rough roads and long distances. Reliability and build quality are said to be good as well, though some drivers have noted a certain amount of body sway under hard cornering.

Chevrolet expands the Equinox lineup for 2008 with the addition of the Equinox Sport, an aptly named, sport-tuned version of Chevy's crossover vehicle. The Equinox Sport features a lowered, sport-tuned suspension and a more powerful 264-horsepower, 3.6-liter V6 engine with Variable Valve Timing. Thanks to its pumped-up horsepower, the engine can drive the Equinox Sport from 0 to 60 in just under seven seconds. It links to a six-speed automatic transmission equipped with a Tap Up/Tap Down feature, which enables drivers to shift manually.

In addition, to improve the sportiness of the new trim, Chevy removed its roof rack, added body-color bumpers and fascia, and upgraded the interior with Sport Cloth high-bolstered front bucket seats and Sport-specific instrument gauges (including a 140-mph speedometer). The Sport Equinox also comes equipped with such features as a leather-wrapped steering wheel, cruise control, OnStar, and remote keyless entry. Options include a power sunroof, side-impact airbags, a DVD entertainment system, and a touch-screen navigation system.

A Multi-Flex sliding rear seat can be slid back to provide plenty of legroom for rear-seat passengers, or slid forward to provide additional cargo space. As a result, the Equinox Sport offers plenty of interior room for a vehicle its size, according to drivers and reviewers. Drivers also note that the Sport offers a smooth, comfortable ride, even over rough roads and long distances. Reliability, handling, acceleration, braking, and interior comfort all get positive marks. Four-wheel antilock brakes and the StabiliTrak Electronic Stability Control System, both of which come as standard equipment, help improve traction and stability.

A new trim for 2008, the Chevrolet Equinox LTZ AWD combines upscale features with the stability and handling of an all-wheel-drive vehicle. The LTZ's on-demand all-wheel-drive system delivers power to the front wheels under normal driving conditions and automatically transfers power to the rear wheels when needed, improving traction on all types of driving surfaces and in all types of road conditions.

Other features include a leather-wrapped steering wheel, cruise control, OnStar, and a power-adjustable driver's seat. Options include a power sunroof, a touch-screen navigation system, and a DVD entertainment system.

For a compact crossover vehicle, the Equinox LTZ AWD offers plenty of legroom in the rear seats, thanks to a Multi-Flex sliding rear seat, which can be slid back to provide space for rear-seat passengers or slid forward to provide additional cargo space when the rear seats are unoccupied. With the rear seat slid all the way forward, the Equinox LTZ AWD provides 35 cubic feet of rear storage space. In addition, the LTZ AWD offers a smooth, comfortable ride, even over rough roads and long distances, according to drivers and reviewers. Reliability and build quality are said to be good as well, though some drivers have noted a certain amount of body sway under hard cornering.

Drivers seeking a sport-oriented crossover vehicle capable of safely navigating rainy, snowy, icy, or muddy roads can opt for the Chevrolet Equinox Sport AWD, which makes its debut for 2008. The Equinox Sport AWD comes equipped with an on-demand all-wheel-drive system, which delivers power to the front wheels under normal driving conditions and automatically transfers power to the rear wheels when needed. Four-wheel antilock brakes and the StabiliTrak Electronic Stability Control System also come standard, helping to ensure good handling and stability in all types of driving conditions.

The Equinox Sport AWD comes equipped with a number of features designed to set it apart from its siblings in the Equinox lineup, including a lowered, sport-tuned suspension and a more powerful 264-horsepower, 3.6-liter V6 engine with Variable Valve Timing. The engine links to a six-speed automatic transmission equipped with a Tap Up/Tap Down feature, which enables drivers to shift manually.

Other unique features for the Equinox Sport include Sport Cloth high-bolstered front bucket seats and Sport-specific instrument gauges (including a 140-mph speedometer). A leather-wrapped steering wheel, cruise control, OnStar, and remote keyless entry are also part of the standard package, while a power sunroof and a DVD entertainment system are among the options.

The Equinox Sport AWD's acceleration, ride quality, interior comfort, handling, and braking all get positive marks from drivers and reviewers. A new Multi-Flex sliding rear seat, which slides back or forward, helps ensure that rear passengers have plenty of legroom or can provide additional rear cargo space when the rear seat is unoccupied.
