The towing capacity of the Chevy Equinox is a very impressive tow capacity for a compact crossover model. Here at Woodhouse Chevrolet near Des Moines, we have not only several Chevy Equinox models in stock, but we also have the information you need if you’re looking to tow, haul, or otherwise cart around items in your new Chevy car.

Towing Capacity of the 2020 Chevy Equinox

The Chevy Equinox has something for just about everyone. Family car? Check. Commuter transportation? Check. First new car or for recent graduate? Check. And the best part, you have the option to tow up to 3,500 pounds with this crossover! You could tow a boat, camper, jet ski, motorcycle, or any other item up to 3,500 pounds – elevating your summer from good to great.

Depending on which engine you go for, your towing power can range from great to spectacular. The Chevy Equinox comes in 1.5-liter or 2.0-liter 4-cylinder engine options. The 1.5-liter produces up to 170 horsepower, while the 2.0-liter can achieve 252. While the second configuration is obviously more powerful, the first one can still tow up to 1,500 pounds and gets better fuel efficiency.

The max trailer capacity isn’t the only impressive stat of the 2020 Chevy Equinox. You can also get a tongue weight up to 10 to 15% of this model’s gross combination weight rating. That means you can tow a sizeable camper or boat without putting undue weight on your hitch.
