The Equinox has a roomy interior with seating for five adults.

The more luxurious LTZ model stands out with 17-inch bright chrome-clad alloy wheels, chrome door handles, and chrome luggage rack trim, plus a number of additional features inside including heated front seats, leather seat trim and a sound system with 6-disc changer.
The StabiliTrak stability control system with electronic trailer sway control is standard across the line. Head curtain air bags are standard on all Equinox models.
At the top of the range, the Sport model features heated seats with firmer side bolsters and available perforated leather, plus a leather-wrapped sport steering wheel and a special J-gate shifter design, which enables the driver to manually tap up or down to shift gears. On the outside, the Sport gets 18-inch polished forged-aluminum wheels, along with body-colored front and rear fascias and chrome trapezoidal exhaust outlets.
Noteworthy options for the Equinox include a power sunroof, Pioneer seven-speaker audio system, and heated leather seats.
