The 2011 Chevy Equinox Hits Big With Jacksonville Chevrolet Customers
Nimincht Chevrolet, a leading Jacksonville Chevrolet dealer, is proud to present the 2011 Chevy Equinox to their customers. Ever since the 2011 Chevrolet Equinox rolled into Nimnicht’s showroom, Jacksonville drivers have responded enthusiastically to this just-the-right-size crossover. It delivers distinctive styling and best-in-segment EPA highway fuel economy of 32 miles per gallon when equipped with the standard Ecotec 2.4L direct injected engine.
Available in LS, LT and LTZ trim, with available all-wheel drive, the Equinox complements its styling and fuel efficiency with attention to detail and unexpected features.
Both the standard Ecotec 2.4L engine and available 3.0 L V-6 in the 2011 Chevrolet Equinox feature fuel-saving direct injection and variable valve timing technology. The standard 2.4L Ecotec direct injected I-4 engine is rated at 182 horsepower (136 kW), which delivers segment-best EPA-estimated fuel economy of 32 mpg highway, 22 mpg city and AWD models rated at 20 city/29 highway. The 3.0L V-6 is rated at 264 horsepower (197 kW), which delivers an EPA-estimated 25 mpg highway, 17 mpg city.
For 2011, it also offers FlexFuel capability that allows Jacksonville Chevrolet drivers to operate on gasoline, E85 bioethanol or a combination of both. E85 comprises 85 percent bioethanol, a domestically produced, renewable fuel that produces fewer greenhouse gases in the combustion process, and 15 percent gasoline.
Jacksonville Chevy Equinox For Sale
The 2011 Chevrolet Equinox’s interior features thoughtful attention to detail that makes it an ideal family vehicle when driving in Jacksonville–including a number of storage bins, an oversized glove box; a closed storage bin in the instrument panel above the center stack; and closed storage under the center armrest large enough for a laptop computer.
A “floating” center stack houses many ergonomic comfort and convenience controls. Contemporary, ice-blue ambient lighting – featured within and surrounding the center stack, encircling the center-console cupholders and within the door pull cups – accentuates the cabin and provides an upscale-looking environment. The front and rear seats, which include cloth and uplevel, perforated leather-trimmed offerings, are designed for best-in-class comfort. For 2011, the 2LT model includes standard heated cloth seats and a compass is added to the LS model.
Front-seat fore-aft travel of 10 inches (25 mm), combined with the tilt/telescoping steering wheel and standard power-adjustable seat height, offer exceptional driver comfort. The Equinox’s MultiFlex rear seat capability, available at Nimnicht Chevrolet, allows the seat to be moved fore or aft nearly eight inches (203 mm), for the best rear legroom in its class. With the 60/40-split-back rear seat moved all the way forward, the cargo area offers 31.4 cubic feet (889 liters) of storage.
Noise-absorbing elements are built into the chassis, engine compartment and interior, making the 2011 Chevrolet Equinox cabin noticeably quiet for Jacksonville Chevrolet drivers. Active Noise Cancellation (ANC) technology on 2.4L-equipped models uses microphones to detect booming sounds inside the vehicle and sends counteracting sound waves through the audio system’s speakers, providing a quiet driving experience at almost all vehicle speeds.
