What kind of engine is in the Chevrolet Equinox EV ?

Chevrolet Equinox EV

The 1.5-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine powering the 2022Chevrolet Equinox generates 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque.

It is coupled to a six-speed automatic transmission with the option of all-wheel drive or two-wheel drive.

on average, $5,370, according to Edmund's True Cost to Own calculation.

It's important to keep in mind that the Equinox's all-wheel drive system is effectively a part-time configuration

that requires the driver to turn it on in order for all four wheels to move.

In my field testing, I discovered that the engine took a moment to get going before the boost came on in the middle of the powerband.

In order to catch up to interstate speeds, this meant sluggish acceleration from a stop and even flooring it.

Don't get me wrong, the Equinox can accelerate just fine

but the ride becomes less smooth as it increases its RPM range.
