Holden Brings Chevrolet Equinox to Australia

The Holden brand has formally announced the all-new Holden Equinox. If the name sounds familiar, the look will as well. Holden’s new Equinox is simply a Chevrolet Equinox with Holden badging; a sign of the times in which Holden no longer manufactures vehicles.

Being a twin with the Chevy version isn’t a bad thing, though. Like the stateside Equinox, Holden is getting all three turbocharged engine options, plus a six-speed manual gearbox on the base 1.5-liter turbocharged four. The second turbo engine is the higher-output 2.0-liter, while Australians will also gain the Equionox’s 1.6-liter turbo-diesel next year.

The three engines will scatter across six different trim levels, with LTZ-V being the capstone of the lineup, which offers all-wheel-drive as standard fare. Those six trim levels will range from $27,990 to $46,290.

And as noted from the below interior shot, the Holden Equinox will be offered in right-hand drive configuration.

    Unless it's a true competitor to the LC200 it holds zero interest for me.

    If it's a proper 4wd with decent GCM and competitively priced I'm very interested. Alas I suspect not

    Edit: CX-5 Competitor. meh. Another model lost in a market over supplied with competitors. Good luck GM - your going to need it.

    Looks like they did the Chevy to Holden badge correctly this time.
