2010 Chevrolet Equinox
With this year's wild swings in gasoline prices, consumers want fuel economy, but they still want their SUV utility. So we can expect fuel-efficient crossovers like the Chevrolet Equinox to form an important part of any Detroit comeback strategy.

The Equinox, GM's little market entry, was due for a full makeover and at last, here it is. The crossover gets the new Chevrolet brand look with a horizontally split grill and a giant gold bowtie, making it look very much like a smaller Chevy Traverse.

For the fuel-conscious, GM expects the new Equinox to get 30 mpg on the highway when equipped with a four-cylinder engine or 25 with a V6.

And there are features for comfort. The Equinox will have soft blue interior ambient lighting. One particularly handy feature, carried over from the current version, will be rear seats that can slide forward or back for more legroom or cargo space, as needed.
