For 2018, the Chevrolet Equinox is all-new from the ground-up, which means that it gets a slick new exterior design to go with its more efficient and capable powertrain and innovative features. The Equinox’s sculpted, aerodynamic appearance exudes cool, athletic vibes, and with a number of exterior features like LED lights and heated mirrors, the Equinox is a crossover made for the modern driver.
All trim levels of the 2018 Equinox come with a 1.5-liter turbo four-cylinder engine with Variable Valve Timing mated to a six-speed automatic transmission, rated at 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque. All four trim levels of the Equinox come in front-wheel drive (FWD), but drivers may opt for the available all-wheel drive (AWD) system on all trims except for the entry-level L model.
When equipped with FWD, the Equinox’s 1.5-liter turbo-4 engine delivers a fuel economy of 26 mpg in the city, 32 mpg on the highway, and 28 mpg combined.* For drivers who choose the AWD system, these fuel ratings drop slightly to 24 mpg in the city, 30 mpg on the highway, and 26 mpg combined.*
Not only is the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox spacious enough to accommodate either five adult passengers or up to 63.5 cubic feet of cargo, but also the inside of this crossover was designed to provide convenience and entertainment on-the-go with all sorts of cutting-edge technology. From Keyless open and start to the Chevrolet MyLink infotainment system with all sorts of connectivity features, the Equinox offers drivers smart ways to make their daily drive a little bit easier.
Standard safety equipment in the Chevy Equinox includes a rearview camera; frontal, seat-mounted, and side-impact airbags; a full suite of OnStar assistance systems; StabiliTrak and tire pressure monitoring; and the new Teen Driver System that allows parents to track and set parameters for their kids remotely. Drivers can also opt for available systems such as the Driver Confidence Package, Side Blind Zone Alert, Rear Park Assist, and more.
