2023 Chevrolet Equinox RS AWD: A Sporty and Efficient Crossover SUV

The 2023 Chevrolet Equinox now offers a sporty RS trim and it is a perfect blend of athletic looks, technology, and style. This compact SUV offers a sleek and aerodynamic design that mimics the much larger Traverse and the RS trim adds black accents against our tester’s Radiant Red Tintcoat that is sure to turn heads on the road.

Under the hood, the Equinox RS is powered by a 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine that delivers 175 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque. This engine is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission that provides smooth and responsive shifting and delivers power to all four wheels thanks to the optional all-wheel drive of our tester, which allows for excellent traction and stability on the road.

On the inside, the Equinox RS greets you with a black and red color scheme that pairs nicely with its red and black exterior. The red accents throughout the cabin do a great job of breaking up the otherwise large swaths of black in this cabin. Turn your gaze up and you will see one of the largest gas roofs in the segment and perhaps the largest opening sunroof we have seen in this class. The Equinox RS also comes with Chevrolet's latest in-vehicle technology, including Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and more.

Safety is also a top priority for the Equinox RS, which comes with a host of advanced safety features, including lane departure warning, forward collision warning, and automatic emergency braking. The Equinox RS also comes standard with a rear-seat reminder, which alerts you to check the back seat for passengers or pets before you exit the vehicle.

Overall, the 2023 Chevrolet Equinox RS is a versatile and sporty crossover SUV that offers a perfect blend of racy looks, technology, and style. Whether you're looking for a vehicle for your daily commute or for weekend getaways, the Equinox RS is sure to impress.
