Could arrive in early 2015

The Chevrolet Equinox is starting to show its age and new details are starting to emerge about the next-generation model that is due in early 2015.

According to Motor Trend, the redesigned crossover will go on a "serious" diet which should enable it to be lighter and more fuel efficient that its predecessor.

Engine options remain unconfirmed, but entry-level models could have a 2.5-liter four-cylinder that produces 196 bhp (145 kW) and 186 lb-ft (253 Nm) of torque. The Equinox could also be offered with a plug-in hybrid powertrain as well as V6 or a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine.

The Equinox is expected to spawn a new GMC Terrain as well as a mid-size Buick crossover which could be called the Anthem or Envision.
