Roof Rack For 2020 Chevy Equinox With Naked Roof

Question:

I have a 2020 Equinox without a roof rack or mounting brackets to add a roof rack, do you have a kit that would work without me having factory mounting brackets to have a roof rack?

We do have a roof rack system that will fit your 2020 Chevy Equinox beautifully, even without it having any rails or other mounting spots. Your Equinox has what is referred to as a naked roof, and there is one option I really like for your Equinox, which is from Rhino-Rack. The parts that make up the rack and fit your car are the following:

- Rhino-Rack Vortex Aero Crossbars - Silver # RRVA126S-2 or Black # RRVA126B-2
- Rhino-Rack 2500 Series Legs # RRRLKVA
- Custom DK Fit Kit # DK488

The reason I like the Rhino-Rack roof rack so much is because of the value it offers; this is a rack that has the same quality as other name brand racks, but at a more economical price. So you are getting a high quality, durable, quiet roof rack at a better cost.

This roof rack has aerodynamic bars which are low profile, ensuring a stellar look on top of your Equinox, while also utilizing rubber vortex strips to minimize wind noise, allowing you to get to your destination in peace.

Additionally, the rack offers security in the form of built-in locks which secure the bars to your roof, helping protect your investment; this is different than most other racks which require you to purchase the locks separately. I have added a link below to a video review showing this rack being installed on a similar model year Equinox for you to check out.

Question:

What’s the difference between that and the Thule Evo kit?

Expert Reply:

There are only a couple of difference between the Rhino-Rack and Thule roof racks for your 2020 Equinox. The biggest difference is cost, as the Rhino-Rack is more budget-friendly, though like I mentioned, still retains exceptional quality.

The other differences are that the Thule has slightly longer crossbars at 53 inches compared to the 49 inch bars of the Rhino-Rack, and the Thule does not have locks, it requires the purchase of those separately with the Thule One-Key System Lock Cylinders # TH450400.

If you did want the Thule roof rack for your 2020 Equinox, here are the parts that you will need:

- Thule WingBar Evo Crossbars - Silver # TH711400 or Black # TH711420
- Evo Clamp Feet for Thule Crossbars # TH710501
- Fit Kit for Thule Evo Clamp Roof Rack Feet # TH145206
