Does a 2012 Chevy Equinox have Bluetooth?

I was thinking about buying a used SUV and I found a great deal on a 2012 Chevy Equinox. However, I want to make sure that it has Bluetooth capability so that I can listen to my favorite tunes. Does Bluetooth come standard on a 2012 Chevy Equinox?

The 2012 Chevy Equinox has Bluetooth across all of its trims, marking the first year that this handy spec spilled out across the LS, LT1, LT2, and LTZ trim levels. However, this Bluetooth feature will only allow hands-free calling and voice recognition for your contacts or the Chevy MyLink infotainment system. It does not offer Bluetooth streaming audio.
If you want to stream audio from your phone, you can either
add a Bluetooth adapter
or use a one-eighth inch auxiliary audio jack and connect it to the audio port. Either of these will allow you to access your music library and funnel it through the car’s audio system, albeit without the benefit of voice recognition or controlling the tracks via the head unit.
