Although it’s been on sale since the 2010 model year, the Chevrolet Equinox remains popular in the crowded compact crossover segment. In fact, the Equinox was the fourth best-selling compact crossover last year, behind the Honda CR-V, Ford Escape, and Toyota RAV4. A new teaser image released on the automaker’s Facebook page and Twitter account suggests the 2016 Chevrolet Equinox is due for an update.

From the teaser image, we can see that the 2016 Chevrolet Equinox receives new headlight housings with projector headlights and a new foglight design. We will have to wait to find out if those features are standard or part of a trim level or package upgrade. Other than a redesigned fascia to accommodate the reshaped headlight housings, few other details about the updated Equinox can be gathered from the teaser including whether or not this is a mid-cycle update or an all-new vehicle.

The current Chevrolet Equinox is offered with a base 182-hp, 172 lb-ft of torque 2.4-liter four-cylinder or an available 301-hp, 272 lb-ft 3.6-liter V-6. Both engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-drive is standard, while all-wheel-drive is available. The 3.6-liter engine replaced a less powerful 3.0-liter V-6 (264 hp, 222 lb-ft) as the optional engine upgrade for the 2013 model year.

We will have more details on the new 2016 Chevrolet Equinox as they become available.
