Chevy Equinox: Engines & Towing Specs

The Chevy Equinox engines offer Birtle drivers two options. The base engine, a standard EcoTec 1.5L Turbocharged engine, will nab you 680 kg of Chevy Equinox towing capacity. The 2.0L turbocharged upgrade raises that figure to 1,588 kg. As for the question of the Chevy Equinox payload numbers, expect 540 kg.

Can the Chevy Equinox Tow a Trailer?

Oak Lake drivers thinking of towing a trailer will need to consider a few other Chevy Equinox specs other than max Chevy Equinox towing capacity. You’ll need to know about GCWR, otherwise known as the gross combination weight rating. You shouldn’t tow a trailer that’s more than 15% of the weight of your vehicle’s GCWR. Here are some other important things to know:

  • Even with the base 1.5L engine equipped, the Chevy Equinox towing capacity can handle teardrop campers. However, if you’re looking to tow something more traditional like an Airstream Caravel, you’ll need to upgrade to the 2.0L engine.
  • With the 2.0L engine, you can even tow utility trailers like the Big Tex Trailers 35SV. You can haul the same trailer with the 1.5L, but you won’t be able to fill it to its capacity.
