2020 Chevrolet Equinox Side View

Looking for a capable compact SUV that can help with all your towing needs in Monticello? The 2020 Chevy Equinox is here to help you make the most of your various trailering tasks, from towing a boat or dirt bikes to towing a cargo trailer full of your stuff during a big move! 

That’s right — not only is the Chevy Equinox an efficient, sleek, and spacious compact SUV, but it also is a capable towing machine. In fact, when you equip it right, the Equinox can tow up to 3,500 pounds*! Learn more about the 2020 Chevrolet Equinox towing capacity by engine and trim below.


How Much Can a Chevy Equinox Tow? Here are the Facts

The 2020 Chevy Equinox towing capacity varies based on which engine option (and, thus, trim level) you choose. You have two engine options in total, each of which is only available in select Equinox trim levels. Learn more about which engines are available with which trims by contacting us. In the meantime, here is how much each of the 2020 Chevy Equinox engine options is capable of towing:

  • EcoTec 1.5L Turbocharged Engine: This engine boasts a GCWR rating of 5,247 pounds when equipped with FWD and 5,467 pounds with AWD. What’s more, with either drivetrain, it gives the Chevy Equinox up to a 1,500 pound towing capacity.
  • 2.0L Turbocharged Engine: This larger, more powerful of Equinox engines boasts a 7,694 pound GCWR rating and, when equipped, gives the Equinox a maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds when also paired with the Chevy Equinox towing package!

2020 Chevy Equinox Cargo Space

Chances are when you’re towing stuff around Rogers or Coon Rapids, you’ll also require plenty of cargo space to haul around all your things. That’s where the roomy interior comes in:

  • Cargo Volume Behind 1st Row: 63.9 cubic feet maximum
  • Cargo Volume Behind 2nd Row: 29.9 cubic feet maximum

What does all that space mean for you? Whether you’re looking to pack in a day’s worth of picnic supplies, a weekend’s worth of luggage, or years worth of mementos and boxes while moving, the Chevy Equinox has the space to accommodate your big, busy life. 

2020 Chevy Equinox Storage Solutions

Let’s talk about clever storage solutions. The Chevy Equinox sure is full of them. From a hands-free power tailgate that makes unloading and loading cargo easier to fold-flat rear seats, the Equinox makes accommodating all your baggage simple:

  • Hands-Free Liftgate: An available rear power tailgate or hands-free rear power tailgate both make loading and unloading groceries and other items when your hands are full much easier.
  • 60/40 Split-Folding Rear Seats: Standard 60/40 split-folding rear seats fold flat to make it easy to access the Equinox’s max cargo capacity in a pinch.
  • Roof Rails: Have more to carry than you can handle inside your Equinox? If you can’t tow it, you can probably put it on the roof with available roof rails. Equip them with crossbars and a dedicated luggage carrier, and you’ll be all set!
