Just picked up new 2LT equinox this weekend. I've been looking around at them, liked the redesign for 2010 and wanted something to help pull my other toy around. Found this arriving on the truck the day I went by to test drive a v6 (which the dealer sold that week but didnt have the website updated)...

2010 Black Granite Metalllic 2LT
*3.0L V6
*Leather (jet/jet which looks great imo)
*Tow package
*Cargo Mangement
*Power lift gate

Mods to include:

Already replaced the Hanwhatevers for Bridgestone Dueler H/L Alenza tires (work for BFNA)
GM All weather mats (ordered)
Clear Bra (ordered)
Fix dome lighting (doesnt match the car being..going to go with LED's)










And just for giggles..My previous ride. 2009 Cobalt SS/TC


Several modifiations. 2.0L SIDI Turbocharged engine dyno'd out @ 322fwhp/365fwtrq

Very nice, you are going to love it! P.S. love the reference to the Kia Sorrento commercials. hahaha As far as the floor mats i've done some researching. At first i thought i was dead set on the Weathertechs, but im pretty sure im going with the Huskies as they seem to cover a little bit more and go further under the seat. Plus they are cheaper!

Congratulation!!! I got my just a few days ago. I actually like yours with better match body color because they all black. Mine with Chrome handles, roof racks and shinny Metals front and back actually seem unmatched. The only reason i chose LTZ because i like the Projector Headlamps. I wish GM had it standard with all versions.

Actually mine had the Hankook Optimo H725 (junk tires)

The LT's only come with either Hankook or Michellin Latitudes (nice tires)...

I picked it up Saturday about 2 hours from my house, then drove straight to a Firestone Complete Autocare, and had them change out the tires lmao! I work for Bridgestone as a technical field rep, they give us a great deal on new tire change overprogram.....I would've kept the Latitudes if I would've received them....some comments here and there, but they are great tires from reviews and test....the Hankooks on the other hand, well you get what you pay for, and they have horrible reviews and test results.

I'm pretty sure the LTZ and 19" wheel upgrades get the BS or MI (top brands). The LS/LT I'm going to guess are the Optimo's unless you get AWD?

I agree on the projectors.....I saw a GMC Acadia yesterday that was black w/ the chrome package....It looked nice imo....but I like the all 1 color look. Reason I wanted dark color due to the trim pieces in the front, sides and rear being black plastic.

Are your projectors HID's or just regular "H" series bulbs....Definitely looks much better in your photos. Dealer price is only 224 a side, which is not bad I guess (lol)
