In comparison, with the 4AWD I routinely get 28-29 mpg highway, 25 city with no perceived loss of power.
The winter gas is killing the numbers, 22 city and 25 highway.

What kind of rear drive assist system does the Equinox use? Is it a variation of the Versatrak system such as on the VUE?

I believe it is, not sure how it may have changed but same general idea,,,,,,front wheels start to slip and more power to rear

The AWD system is uses a power transfer unit bolted, to the transmission, and an axle both made for GM by GETRAG in North Carolina. There's a clutch module between the prop shaft and the axle that engages the rear drive when sensing slip. The Vue used this same setup starting in the 2007MY.
