In its ninth year of production the Equinox has proven to be an important part of Chevrolet’s lineup. The m2014 Equinox is a capable crossover SUV with two engine options — a 2.4-liter four-cylinder or a 3.6-liter V-6 — and either two- or all-wheel drive. Using the correct fluids during maintenance is the key to long vehicle life.
The specified engine oil is 5W-30 Dexos1, which is a synthetic blend oil. The 3.6-liter takes 6 quarts and the 2.4-liter takes 5 quarts.
The automatic transmission in the Equinox calls for between 4.2 and 6.3 quarts of Dexron VI synthetic transmission fluid. It is the same with both engines.
