2025 Chevy Equinox New Features, Tech & Design

Published on Mar 8, 2024 by Classic ELITE Chevrolet Sugar Land Creative Team

Almost exactly 20 years ago, Chevrolet introduced the world to a brand-new midsize crossover utility vehicle that would be joining its lineup. The original Chevy Equinox made its debut for the 2005 model year, and now its fourth generation will kick off in 2025. While it's undergone plenty of changes through the years and generations, including a shift from midsize down to the compact crossover segment, it only continues to build its reputation as an incredible option on the brand’s lineup. Today we thought we’d highlight some of the new features, technologies & design changes coming to the all-new 2025 Chevy Equinox.

“This generation of Equinox has taken on a broad-shouldered, athletic appearance that conveys confidence and versatility. We leaned into distinct appearances and material selection for LT, RS and ACTIV so everyone can see themselves in an Equinox.”

- Phil Zak, Executive Design Director, Global Chevrolet

Introducing ACTIV Trim

Before we dive into some of the more specific new features and broader design cues, there’s one very exciting change coming to the 2025 Chevy Equinox that was just mentioned in the quote above. There’s a brand-new trim level that will be available for 2025 called ACTIV, which happens to be the Equinox nameplate’s first stab at an off-road or outdoorsy trim level. With its own unique front fascia and the option for a white roof that would create a two-tone exterior, the ACTIV promises a fresh and rugged version of the vehicle. It also adds the following unique features and design cues:

  • All-terrain tires
  • Vertical grille inserts
  • Gray metallic front fascia finish
  • Black badging
  • 17” machined-face aluminum wheels
  • Maple Sugar and Black interior colors
  • Premium Evotex and sueded microfiber seating materials
  • ACTIV embroidery on front seat head restraints
  • Available heated and ventilated front seating
  • Available heated rear outboard seating
  • Available driver’s seat memory functions

Enhanced 2025 Equinox Exterior

A vast majority of the current Chevrolet lineup has been refreshed over the past two years, and the Equinox takes a lot of inspiration from some of those other new models, particularly the Traverse and various pickup trucks, including its strong proportions and attractive new bodylines. The following is a list of additional changes to the exterior about which we’re quite excited:

  • 2.3” wider stance
  • A distinct front fascia for each trim level
  • Squared wheel openings
  • Square fender flares
  • C-pillar shark fin
  • All-LED lighting
  • Aluminum wheel options from 17” to 20”
  • Unique RS trim design cues
    • Standard black emblems and mirrors
    • Available black roof
    • Wide grille opening
    • High gloss finish
    • 19” Carbon Flash machined aluminum wheels
