You’ve seen the traditional family vehicle, also known as the minivan, low to the ground, bulky, and not at all what you imagined yourself driving as an adult. When you have older relatives, kids, pets, and other items of typical family life, you don’t always have many options when it comes to vehicles that are large enough to fit three, four, or five individuals. This can sometimes lead drivers to the typical, and not at all exciting, minivan.

Unless that is, you’re looking for something that lets people know that while you have a family, you’re the fun, adventurous type that rejects a mundane form of transportation. Are you looking for something that can fit the whole family that also looks cool and provides an enriching driving experience? You might want to consider the Chevy Equinox, as it allows you to be exciting and fun while also offering safety and comfort. For New Jersey residents looking for a Chevy Equinox for sale, your search begins and ends here at Richard Lucas Chevrolet with our extensive selection of Chevy Equinox models.

Trim Levels and Special Editions

The 2023 Chevy Equinox comes in a variety of trims and special edition packages, making it easy to find a model that fits your unique driving needs. Each level includes either more technology, safety features, or material upgrades in the interior, while the special edition packages mostly concentrate on the exterior, creating a unique look for the vehicle and making it stand out.

Four trim levels are available for the 2023 Chevy Equinox, which include the LS, LT, RS, and Premier. The LS includes things like the Chevy Safety Assist (standard on all trim levels) and its array of driver safety and assistance technology, LED headlights, and the ability to wirelessly connect your infotainment center to your phone with Android Auto or Apple CarPlay. The LT adds a multicolor driver information center display and a power driver’s seat, while the RS takes it a step further to include a front and rear park assist feature, a power liftgate, as well as a sporty appearance package (grill, wheels, and badges are all changed).

Chevy’s Premier trim level has everything mentioned, plus additional safety features like a side blind zone alert, along with a wireless charging pad and a heated steering wheel. This is not an exhaustive list by any means, but it will give you an indication of how each trim level differs. Depending on what you need and your desired features, you’ll be drawn to one trim level or another. There are two standout special edition packages available when you purchase either the Equinox LS or the Equinox Premier. For the LS, the Midnight Edition is available, while the Premier offers the Redline Edition. Let’s take a deeper look at these unique options and see exactly how they can customize your new Equinox even further.

The Midnight Edition

Going with the LS trim level? You can choose the Midnight Edition package to enhance the look of your new SUV and give it a darkened mystique. The Midnight package ensures that you and your family always look sharp while also catching the eye of everyone on the road with its sleek, sophisticated display. The first thing the Midnight package changes are the wheels and tires. The wheels are now Gloss Black aluminum, while the tires are all-season blackwall tires. This pairing brings a touch of mystery to the Equinox, as well as a sense of refinement.

The next changes are the bowtie emblems, the official badge of Chevrolet. Like the wheels, these emblems on the front and back are black as well. Other changes include body-color mirror caps and a mold-in-color black grille. The mold-in-color black grille will look seamless with the actual grille itself, giving the Equinox a look that rivals its most luxurious SUV competitors.

You can get the Equinox in Iridescent Pearl Tricoat, Harvest Bronze Metallic, Summit White, Mosaic Black Metallic, Blue Glow Metallic, Sterling Gray Metallic, Iron Gray Metallic, and Radiant Red Tintcoat. Any of these will provide a great contrast to the Midnight Edition package, but the Mosaic Black Metallic or Iron Gray Metallic will take the SUV from great to exceptional. No matter your color, your Equinox will take on a polished elegance that will wow your family and other drivers alike. When you choose the Midnight Edition Package, you are ready to take on the world and stun it with your dedication to detail, exceptional sense of style, and willingness to stand out from the rest.

The Redline Edition

Want to stand out but in a sporty way? The Redline Edition has just what you’re looking for. This special edition package is only available on the Premier trim level, which means not only are you going to look great, but your driving experience will be filled with comfort and peace of mind. The Premier trim level adds to the already luxurious Equinox by including a memory driver’s seat and outside mirrors, an HD rear vision camera, a universal garage door opener, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, and a hands-free power liftgate. This isn’t all to expect from the Premier, but it’s a good overview of what you can expect from the highest Equinox trim level; all the highly sought-after features and none of the competition’s pricing.

Adding the Redline Edition package helps bring out the more athletic side of the Equinox while maintaining its sleek sense of sophistication. The tasteful Redline Edition adds a variety of black and red decor, badges, and more, opting for something that looks more like an action vehicle than a standard family hauler. You’ll immediately notice the wheels and tires, with their red accents that compliment the blackwall tires.

True to form, it has black badges with red outlines and Redline decals on the mirrors, giving it just enough red to make it pop without being pulled over by the police. There’s also a different grill, though it is described as Redline-specific. Black accents highlight the vehicle’s exterior and interior, focusing on the sporty aesthetic. There are plenty of other black accents on the door handles, window surrounds, the headliner, and the inside boasts a “Black Ice” theme. If you’re in a family of sporty types, you might want to look at the Equinox’s Redline Edition.

Anything but Your Typical Family-Friendly SUV

Tired of driving the same old family car or minivan? You and your family deserve better, and that’s why you’ll love the Chevy Equinox. It’s practical without compromising on space and comfort, and you’ll love how customizable it is, whether you go with a specific trim level or want to add a special package to make it pop when it’s on the road. You won’t have to worry about losing it in a crowd because it refuses to look like the typical SUV.

Chevrolet has outdone itself with the 2023 Chevy Buick, giving you and your family a little spice into your daily driving. At Richard Lucas Chevrolet, we welcome you to come in and experience the 2023 Chevy Equinox for yourself. Our knowledgeable sales team will take you through our extensive selection of Equinox models and help you find one that perfectly fits the needs of your family and shows off your unique style.
