After making a bold move with the addition of a 1.6-litre turbo-diesel in the redesigned Chevrolet Equinox two years ago, General Motors decided to drop it for the 2020 model year. That’s easy to understand as the 1.5- and 2.0-litre gasoline engines (also turbocharged) attract a huge majority of customers. The former proves relatively fuel-efficient, while the latter can tow up to 3,500 pounds. The available Wi-Fi hotspot is another notable feature of the family-friendly Equinox.
