OnStar is standard on ’08 Equinox models. OnStar -equipped Equinox models are equipped for Turn-by-Turn Navigation . the first factory-installed, fully integrated GPS navigation system from OnStar. Equinox features an enhanced ride and handling package for 2008 that includes stiffer shocks, hydraulic bushings and tuned spring rates.

Also new for 2008 is Electronic Trailer Sway Control – a feature that is integrated into the standard StabiliTrak system and detects the occurrence of trailer sway that may be caused by improper trailer weight balance or excessive vehicle speed. Upon detection of trailer sway, StabiliTrak will begin to apply brakes individually, independent of the driver applying the brake pedal, to assist the driver in stabilizing the vehicle, and the StabiliTrak activation telltale will flash to signal the driver to reduce vehicle speed. If trailer sway continues, StabiliTrak will reduce engine torque to reduce the speed of the vehicle.

Standard safety features include StabiliTrak electronic stability control system, standard four-wheel disc brakes with Anti-lock braking system and tire pressure monitoring system. Head curtain side air bags are available.

Podium Edition

Like the Pontiac Torrent Podium Edition, the Equinox gets the Team Canada Edition trim sold only in Canada for the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics .
