Alan Batey, president of Global Chevrolet and GM's North American operations said, "We've got the strongest truck business in the industry and we've reinvigorated our car lineup with Volt, Cruze and Malibu. We're applying the same customer focus to grow our crossover/SUV business - starting with the Chevrolet Equinox."

The new model is packed with projector-beam headlamps, rear horizontal tail lamps and chrome accents on all trim levels. There are three turbocharged engines - a 1.5-liter turbo, a 2.0-liter turbo, mated to a new 9-speed automatic transmission - and a 1.6-liter turbo-diesel.

"Customers who previewed the vehicle early on had a strong emotional response to the sleek and sophisticated exterior design. Those same themes are carried through to the interior, making space beautifully intuitive," said John Cafaro, executive director of GM Design.
