2008 CHEVY EQUINOX
A lowered suspension, 18-inch wheels, a 264-horsepower engine -- backed up with a six-speed automatic transmission with manual tap up/tap down control form the basis of the new 2008 Equinox Sport.
The Chevy Equinox Sport also features hydraulic power steering, a tuned exhaust, and unique interior and exterior appointments to endow the attributes of a performance vehicle. Both front-wheel- and all-wheel-drive models are available.
Electronic Trailer Sway Control is also new for 2008. Integrated into the StabiliTrak system, it detects trailer sway that may be caused by improper trailer weight balance or excessive vehicle speed. Upon detection of trailer sway, StabiliTrak will begin to apply brakes individually, to assist the driver in stabilizing the vehicle, and the StabiliTrak activation telltale will flash to signal the driver to reduce vehicle speed. If trailer sway continues, StabiliTrak will reduce engine torque to reduce the speed of the vehicle.
In addition to the Equinox Sport, a new Equinox LTZ model joins the lineup. Other changes made to 2008 Equinox models include the relocation of the compass readout from the inside rearview mirror to the driver information center (on models so-equipped), and three new exterior colors: Navy Blue Metallic, Black Granite Metallic and Golden Teal Metallic.
