The list of updates for the 2021 Equinox, first revealed in February at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show, includes fresh exterior styling more in line with the brand’s aggressive styling language such as new front and rear fascias, a new grille and, for higher trims, new 19-inch machine-faced wheels. A new RS trim inspired by the popular Blazer RS, is also on the list.
The interior will also be upgraded though the majority of these improvements are reserved for higher trims once again. For example, the Premier will get French stitching on the upholstery and a high-gloss black console finish. The RS has a unique shift knob, black leather upholstery, and red contrast stitching on the seats, armrests, and steering wheel.
