    China: Facelifted Equinox Photos Leaked

    Facelifted 2021 Chevrolet Equinox Prematurely Outed In China
    BY BRAD ANDERSON
    JANUARY 14, 2020
    carscoops.com

    The facelifted 2021 Chevrolet Equinox has surfaced online after a series of images showing the Chinese-spec model were published by various local outlets.

    Our spy photographers have scooped various 2021 Equinox prototypes testing over the past 10 months or so and these images show that the SUV looks a little different than the outgoing model.

    The alterations start at the front where Chevrolet has subtly tweaked the grille of the Equinox and fitted a pair of new headlights with a head-turning split design. For the most part, the sides of the updated model have gone untouched but this isn’t a surprise as this is only a mid-life facelift as opposed to an all-new generation model.

    Interesting. It's not horrible looking, but isn't nearly as handsome as I was expecting. I think I actually prefer the "new look" presented by the Blazer and Trailblazer than the styling offered by this MCE.

    It's anyone's guess if we'll get the same engines or not, but does with a better grasp of GM's Chinese offerings know if the 1.3L is a 3-cylinder or a 4-cylinder in their market?

    probably would cost to much to update the styling to the Blazer look - they'd have to do more than just the front clip....

    Snooze....wake me up again in 9 minutes.

    Why even bother w/ doing a refresh if the refresh is just as bland as the outgoing. The Equinox didn't look good before the refresh, and it won't look good after the refresh. May as well put the $$$ burned here towards a proper MCE on the Colorado/Canyon or something.

    I couldn't agree more. The current Equinox is not only dull, it's weird looking. The sharp corners on the rear bumpers, the bizarre bodyside sculpting and lines that make it look like it has already been in a side collision. Not to mention the completely lackluster interior.

    It looks Korean. Overly busy styling, and nothing new or exciting. This is Hyundai/Kia in a Chevy. It's like someone put salt in my coffee. No, thank you!

    Standard LED headlights is a nice thing, Escape only has LEDs on the top Titanium trim.

    It's a 3-cylinder engine. China domestic market Malibu XL got the same engine for its MY 2019 refresh, replacing the 1.5L four. Here's a video of that vehicle:

    Then the ethanol harvest would be tainted and we can't have that.

    GM could only wish it would look more like Hyundai or Kia products they might be able to sell them outside of the US lol
