CHICAGO -- Chevrolet will give the Equinox a facelift this fall for the 2016 model year, the first cosmetic upgrade to the popular crossover in six years.
The refreshed Equinox features a revised front fascia with a deeper, wider grille, outlined in chrome and retaining the twin-port look of the current model.
New light-emitting diode daytime-running lamps and fog lamps were added to upper trim levels.
Chevrolet has streamlined the model lineup, which now includes L, LS, LT and LTZ trims, eliminating the 1LT and 2LT packages.
The interior gets a larger Chevy MyLink touch screen and new safety features, including available side blind zone alert.
A rear camera will come standard on all models.
“The new face of the Equinox is highlighted by a more expressive execution of chrome accents and premium lighting,” John Cafaro, executive director of design for Chevy cars, said in a statement.
