Stop Start For 2020 Equinox

Any idea if the 2020 Equinox will have a switch to disable stop/start? I've looked on the internet and haven't been able to find anything yet.

Thanks.

Doubt it. If they decide to implement one, it probably won't make its debut until mid-cycle refresh like 2021-22. They have some spy shots floating around with a revised front-end etc.

Or just buy a start-stop module if you don't want to wait. Works great.

Enjoy

No it doesn't. I checked. Sadly, they don't listen to the people who are asking for the option.

Going to start a dispute. Iíll bet thereíre more owners that donít mind Auto/Stop than do.

scbearsfan: I think it should be able to be turned off. I have it on our Buick and don't mind it though, you get used to it. That said, I think it's been a big enough complaint with other Equinox and other Chevy/GM owners I know, that they should allow a way to shut It off. Other brands offer it and you can shut if off.

I guess Iím one of those owners that has no problem with it either way, if it was available I probably wouldnít use it, unless it was set to OFF when the car was delivered to us.

Like I said, I personally don't mind it. I know people who own a GM and it's their chief complaint. My sister has a Buick Encore and while she doesn't mind it, she does try to get it to stay on by coasting at a red light which works. I'm considering buying an Equinox, that's why I'm here. The only real complaint I have (and I've driven several GM vehicles with it) is when the engine shuts off, it shuts off your A/C fan. Not great sitting in a hot car when it's 100 degrees and the A/C isn't working at a long light and the car is HOT! I do a lot of city driving, so it's definitely noticeable.

I do think it's smart when other brands allow you to turn on and off certain features at the owner's choosing. By the way, I often look at the comments on Chevrolet's Facebook page and this is the most noted issue where owners would like the option of NOT having it engaged.

See that's where you"re wrong. We've been in the upper 90s with high humidity for the last 3+ weeks now and the A/C doesn't turn off when it's running full bore. Now it will sometime shutoff when it's cool in the car. Haven't sat long enough for the car to heat up to where we were uncomfortable.

Researched the 2019 NOX and then researched how to turn off the auto stop start. I'm just too old to think having my car turn off at stop lights is a good idea. Bought a 2019 NOX and then the relay to disable it. The best $140.00 option I ever put on a car.
