Also what will be estimated cost to up grade from the 210 horsepower/242 pound-feet of torque in front-wheel-drive variant to the 290 horsepower and 346 pound-feet of torque? Lastly can you get the 290 horsepower/346 pound-feet of torque with front wheel drive and not all wheel? Just wondering if you can save some dollars going front wheel drive but still order the more powerful package.

To answer you last question first, no you cannot get the 290 horsepower/346 pound feet of torque with the front wheel drive. It is the additional motor associated with the AWD that produces the extra horsepower and torque.

GM has not announced the pricing of the different models yet, nor the costs of the options that go with it.

Car and Driver felt that the FWD model with 210 horsepower should do better than 6.8 seconds 0-60 mph.
I read where the 290 HP goes 0 to 60 in 6 seconds. The all-wheel-drive Equinox EVs have 290 hp and 346 lb.-ft., with 280 miles of range. Chevrolet claims 0-to-60-mph acceleration time of about 6 seconds. So Mapleev do you still think the 210 HP does 0 to 60 mph in 6.8 seconds? Almost no difference in two speeds.
