When I think about setting out on a road trip of any kind with my family, I have flashbacks to the classic comedy National Lampoon’s Vacation with Clark Griswold, Chevy Chase’s character. Determined to give his family a memorable cross-country trip to Walley World Amusement Park, Clark begins with getting the family a vehicle.
There’s no question about it; road trips are awesome and memorable, but getting there in comfort and style makes for great road trip! After all, it’s not about the destination so much as it is the journey, and there’s no better way to do it than in the versatile 2019 Chevrolet Equinox.
Comfortable and stylish, the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox is one of the most popular crossover SUVs on the road today. Known as the “Most Dependable Compact SUV” in 2018, the Equinox is the perfect small SUV for those who like to get around efficiently, but in do it in style. Whether your a mom that is constantly on the road with the little ones to school and practice or enjoy just finding new roads, the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox is perfect for everyone.
The 2019 Chevy Equinox earned a top 5-star overall safety rating from the NHTSA, including 5 stars in front and side crash tests and 4 stars in the rollover crash test. It is built to keep your most valuable assets, your family, safe.
The advanced sensors and cameras on the 2019 Chevy Equinox helps you stay aware of what’s around you and is even able to intervene in the event something is wrong.

As a parent, the Teen Driver Technology is something worth checking out on the Chevrolet Equinox. It allows you to track and control your teen’s driving behavior with audio controls, geographic tracking, speed limits, and even an in-vehicle report card. How about that for safety!
If you’ve got your hands full, the available hands-free gesture liftgate opens with just the gentle kicking motion of your foot. It even comes with a programmable memory height that can be set for easy reach or to accommodate areas with low ceilings.
As someone that is trying to carry several things to the car including a 2-year-old, this is one feature I must have!
Having access to Wi-Fi is almost as essential as having gas in the tank and money in the bank. One of the best features of the Chevrolet Equinox is it comes equipped with an OnStar® 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot that takes the internet along with you wherever you go. As a mother to six children, four that are above the age of 16, this makes my life easier. No matter who I had in the car with me, they were able to connect to that rather than my personal hotspot on my device.
Good Gas Mileage
I was quite impressed with the 2019 Chevrolet Equinox fuel economy. We were able to get up to 39 mph on the highway.
- An EPA-estimated 26 mpg city and 32 mpg highway from the 1.5L Turbo 4-cylinder engine
- An EPA-estimated 22 mpg city and 29 mpg highway with the 2.0L Turbo 4-cylinder engine
- An EPA-estimated 28 mpg city and 39 mpg highway with the 1.6L Turbo-Diesel 4-cylinder engine
It’s not too early to start dreaming about all things fall, is it? While it might be the beginning of September and we have got a few weeks until the official start of autumn, this means you have time to plan an unforgettable fall road trip. What are you waiting for? Get yourself a Chevy Equinox and “Find New Roads” this fall!
