Sounds like you have a blown head gasket.

Antifreeze is going out but there appears to be no leaks. There is no smoke but the car overheats.

I can almost guarantee you have a blown head gasket. I had all of these symptoms too. Bubbles in the antifreeze resevior when cool, loosing antifreeze when driven and finally smell and white smoke out the exhaust. Even a pressure check of the radiator came out fine. This seems to be a common problem with the 05 Equinox due to aluminum heads. Cost me about $1600 to fix but the new gaskets are supposed to be made to withstand the expanding of the aluminum heads. Good luck!
