Can the Chevy Equinox Tow a Trailer?

Wondering whether the Chevy Equinox towing capacity can handle a trailer? According to the Chevy towing guide, a trailer’s tongue weight should be no more than 10% to 15% of the vehicle’s GCWR (gross combination weight rating). Additionally, a more heavy-duty hitch may allow you to safely increase towing capabilities. Generally speaking, the 1.5L Equinox engine will permit the towing of the likes of a teardrop camper, while the 2.0L Equinox engine will accommodate a larger Airstream Caravel or a trailer like the Big Tex Trailer’s 35SV utility trailer (77 inch x 10-14 feet), for example.
