If you’re searching for a roomy, luxurious SUV that has plenty of zip for your commute in Vauxhall, NJ, get the 2022 Lincoln Nautilus from our new inventory . The 2022 Chevrolet Equinox is a popular SUV with a comfortable ride, but it can’t match the plush cabin materials and wealth of standard features in the Nautilus. Maplecrest Lincoln has put together the following comparison of the two SUVs to explain why.


Standard and Available Engines

When you’re trying to merge into heavy traffic on I-78 in Newark, it helps to have a muscular engine that can help you get up to speed quickly. The new Lincoln Nautilus comes standard with a turbocharged 250-horsepower four-cylinder engine that gives it more than enough oomph. A twin-turbocharged 335-horsepower V6 is available for even faster take-offs.

The new Chevy Equinox’s lone engine option is a turbocharged 170-horsepower four-cylinder engine. It doesn’t provide as much get-up-and-go as either of the Nautilus’ two motors.

Towing Capability

Many people in Elizabeth, NJ like to pull small RVs or boats behind their SUV. The new Lincoln Nautilus can tow up to 3,500 pounds when properly equipped, which is enough for pulling most boats.

The new Chevy Equinox only has a tow rating of 1,500 pounds, so it can’t handle a large, heavily loaded trailer.


Cabin Materials

All new Lincoln Nautilus models have a horizontally arranged dash with contrasting trim pieces and a push-button gear shifter. Higher trims have leather upholstery and metallic and wood accents. Union, NJ drivers will appreciate that even the Nautilus Standard model comes with synthetic leather seats.

The new Chevy Equinox comes standard with cloth seats, but leather is available for extra cost. Overall, the Equinox’s interior doesn't look or feel as upscale as the Nautilus’s cabin.

Cargo Space

If you often bring a lot of suitcases, sports gear, or shopping bags in your SUV, choose the new Lincoln Nautilus. People in Parsippany-Troy Hills, NJ will like that the Nautilus has 37.2 cubic feet of cargo space behind the rear seats and 68.8 cubic feet of room with the back seats folded.

The new Chevy Equinox only has 29.9 cubic feet of space behind its rear seats and 63.9 cubic feet of cargo room with those seats down.

Comfort and Convenience Features

The new Lincoln Nautilus comes standard with power-adjustable front seats, a power liftgate, and dual-zone automatic climate control to keep everyone comfortable.

The new Chevy Equinox comes with manually adjustable front seats and a manual liftgate. Dual-zone climate control, power-adjustable front seats, and a power liftgate are available in the Equinox, but you must pay more to add them.


Infotainment System and Other Amenities

The new Lincoln Nautilus comes with the intuitive SYNC 4 infotainment system, which has straightforward menus and a responsive, 13.2-inch touch screen. Vauxhall, NJ drivers will like that it also comes with a Wi-Fi hot spot and a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster.

The new Chevy Equinox comes standard with a 7-inch touch screen, and it doesn’t offer a Wi-Fi hot spot or a 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster.


Driver-Assist Features

You’ll feel confident driving the new Lincoln Nautilus in Newark, NJ. It comes with 10 standard driver-assistance features that can watch out for you and help prevent collisions. This includes blind-spot monitoring, which can help you see if there’s a car in your blind spot before changing lanes.

The new Chevy Equinox comes with just seven standard advanced active safety features. Blind-spot monitoring is optional in the Equinox.
