Questions from 2012 Chevrolet Equinox owners about this Bike Rack

  • Yes, the Thule Passage 2 trunk mount bike rack # TH910XT, will fit a 2012 Chevy Equinox. I have linked a video review of this rack for you. If you will be carrying womens, childrens, or alternative frame bikes, I recommend using the bike adapter bar # TH982XT for greater ground clearance and to carry the bikes more level. I have included a link to a video showing how the adapter works. I have also included a link to all of the trunk mount bike racks that will fit your Equinox.

  • I checked with Thule and the Passage 3 trunk mount bike rack, # TH911XT, will fit your 2012 Chevy Equinox. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. If you will be carrying a bike that does not have a round top frame bar that goes straight across, I recommend using a bike adapter bar, # TH982XT. This will allow you to carry those bikes more level which will provide better ground clearance. I have included a link to a video that shows how the adapter works.

2012 Chevrolet Equinox Hitch Bike Racks Questions

  • I contacted our representative at Swagman about the XTC4 Hitch Bike Rack, part # S64665 and the Quad 4 Bike Rack, part # S64691. Both of these bike racks will work for your downhill bikes with 2.7 and 3 inch wide tires. The XTC4 and the Quad 4 are similar in design and either would work great for carrying the downhill bikes. Each rack includes a cable lock and hitch pin lock. One advantage I think the XTC4 has is the wheel hoops do not have a tray which may be nice if you will...

  • Provided that you have a trailer hitch on your 2012 Chevy Equinox, the Swagman Titan, # S63400, would be a great choice. This bike rack can hold 2 bikes, it has anti-sway cradles, it can tilt down away from the vehicle, and it has an integrated cable lock. I have included some links on the Titan for you. If you need a trailer hitch, the most popular option is Curt hitch # 13591. I have included links to the instructions and a video installation for you.

  • If you have a Class I 1-1/4 inch hitch on your 2012 Chevy Equinox then you would only be able to carry two bikes with this Yakima FullTilt 5 Bike Hitch Mounted Folding Rack # Y02463. If you have a Class II 1-1/4 inch hitch on your vehicle you would not be limited to only 2 bikes for the rack. I did some checking and all of the hitches we sell for your vehicle are Class II, so most likely you have a Class II hitch. I also attached an FAQ article on hitch classifications for you...

2012 Chevrolet Equinox Trunk Bike Racks Questions

  • I do have some trunk mount bike rack options for the 2012 Chevy Equinox, but none of the Yakima racks will fit. For a rack that will fit that is in the same price range, I recommend the Thule Archway, # TH9009XT. This rack features an integrated cable lock to lock the last bike to the rack preventing theft of all bikes off of the rack. It also features a passive security strap that will prevent the rack from being removed from the vehicle. If you will be carrying womens, childrens,...

  • Yes, the Thule Passage 2 trunk mount bike rack # TH910XT, will fit a 2012 Chevy Equinox. I have linked a video review of this rack for you. If you will be carrying womens, childrens, or alternative frame bikes, I recommend using the bike adapter bar # TH982XT for greater ground clearance and to carry the bikes more level. I have included a link to a video showing how the adapter works. I have also included a link to all of the trunk mount bike racks that will fit your Equinox.

  • You should not lift the tailgate with a trunk mount bike rack installed for several reasons. First, the weight of the carrier can pull the hatch down on you. Opening the hatch can affect the fit of the rack and cause it to fall off. The hinges for the hatch are not designed for the extra weight. If you need to open the rear hatch then you will need to remove the bikes and rack first. With the Thule Raceway, # TH9002PRO, it is very easy to do so. I own this rack and it is simple...

  • I checked with Thule and the Passage 3 trunk mount bike rack, # TH911XT, will fit your 2012 Chevy Equinox. I have included a link to the installation instructions for you. If you will be carrying a bike that does not have a round top frame bar that goes straight across, I recommend using a bike adapter bar, # TH982XT. This will allow you to carry those bikes more level which will provide better ground clearance. I have included a link to a video that shows how the adapter works.
