There are three body styles and four trim levels to choose from. The base level isn’t an option for the 2021 model, but you can choose from Work Truck, LT, Z71, and ZR2, and can opt for either 4WD or RWD.

Three different engine options provide a nice selection of power to meet your needs. There’s the 200-horsepower, 2.5-liter four-cylinder LCV that delivers 191 lb-ft of torque, or the stronger 3.6-liter V6 LGZ which boasts 308 horsepower and 275 lb-ft of torque. If you prefer diesel, you can go for the 181 horsepower, turbo diesel 2.8-liter four-cylinder LWN Duramax® that kicks out 369 lb-ft of torque.

There’s also the Z71 Midnight Edition package, which adds sleek, black accents and capable upgrades like 31-inch Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac® all-terrain tires.

2021 Chevy Equinox to Drop 2.0-liter Engine Option

Crossovers are a popular option for families and individuals who want the versatility of a larger SUV with the feel of a sedan. Many crossover models, like the Chevy Equinox, have come to offer multiple engine options and other means of customization.

For instance, the 2020 Equinox is available with either a standard 1.5-liter 4-cylinder LYX engine or an available turbo 2.0-liter upgrade. Evidently, the 1.5-liter engine — which delivers 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque — is enough for 93 percent of buyers. Since the turbocharged upgrade wasn’t getting much attention, Chevy has decided to drop it for the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox.

The turbo 2.0-liter I-4 LTG in the 2020 Equinox upgraded its power to 252 horses and 260 lb-ft of torque. It’s paired with a smooth 9-speed automatic transmission. When properly equipped with the trailering package, the turbo 2.0-liter engine allows the 2020 Equinox to tow up to 3,500 pounds. Drivers need only use the Tow/Haul mode button to adjust the transmission for towing motor bikes or small camping trailers.

Although the 9-speed automatic transmission may get carried over to the 2021 Equinox, the peppy 2.0-liter is officially out of the picture. Fortunately, we still have a number of 2020 Chevy Equinox models on our lot at Courtesy Chevy Buick GMC Cadillac. If you prefer a crossover with extra capability and more power under its hood, hurry to schedule a test drive in a 2020 Equinox before this model year is gone for good.

4 New Chevrolet Silverado HD Special Edition Trucks Are on the Way

If you like the Chevrolet Silverado HD, you’ll love its special edition versions. Recently, Chevrolet introduced four new special edition Silverado HD trucks that look great and can help make work easier. Here’s a look at each of them.

Carhartt Special Edition

This Carhartt Special Edition combines two things you love: a Silverado truck with Carhartt work attire. This truck takes the HD Z71 truck and adds Carhartt Gold pinstriping to the exterior along with a black skid plate. Inside, the truck comes with special seat panels and stitching topped by Carhartt-embroidered headrests.

Sport Edition

The Sport Edition model adds style with black grille inserts, black exterior badging, a black skid plate, black hood vent surround, and four-inch assist steps. The sleek look is completed with 18-inch black alloy wheels.

Midnight Edition

The Midnight Edition is similar to the Sport Edition, but it adds mud-terrain tires.

Chrome Sport Edition

This special edition comes with chrome grille accents, a body-color grille bar, 20-inch machined or polished alloy wheels, a chrome skid plate, body-color bumpers, and stylish blackwall tires.

Come visit Courtesy Chevrolet Buick GMC in Ruston, Louisiana. We have a lot of Silverado 1500 and Silverado HD models in stock and can help you choose the one for your needs.


Stay Up-to-Date on Chevrolet’s 2021 Lineup Changes

Changes are coming to the Chevrolet lineup, and we want to fill you in on the details.  Here’s a quick rundown of the news on which models are on schedule, which have been delayed, and what redesigns are in store.

Fresh SUVs, but in limited numbers

The 2021 Chevrolet Colorado, Trailblazer, Suburban, and Tahoe are coming later this year.

  • The Colorado will receive updated exterior queues, with the ZR2 trim particularly benefiting from an exciting, rugged look.
  • The Trailblazer, returning to the North American market after a decade of retirement, provides a new small SUV option for customers. It has plenty in store that you’ll love.
  • The Suburban and Tahoe are fully refreshed, with a new diesel engine option, a redesigned interior with more cargo space and legroom, an improved suspension, and new standard safety technology.

If you’re looking to purchase the 2021 Suburban and Tahoe, be patient: while Chevrolet anticipates their launch will be smooth, normal production of these family SUVs has been delayed due to the global situation.

Refreshes take a gap year

The Chevrolet Traverse, Equinox, Silverado 1500, Camaro, and Bolt refreshes expected to arrive for 2021 have been delayed. The Traverse, Equinox, and Bolt will be 2022 models instead of 2021 like originally planned, and the other models’ redesign and manufacturing have been put on hold for a time.

Full speed ahead on new vehicles

While refreshes of older lines will take longer than expected, development continues on the upcoming Chevrolet Bolt EUV. We’re looking forward to this electric SUV and how it plans to revolutionize green driving.

You can find the 2020 versions of these Chevrolet models in stock at Courtesy Chevrolet Buick GMC now in Ruston, LA, and we’ll have the 2021 models in stock soon.
