2018 Chevrolet Equinox: expect the unexpected
Forget everything you thought you knew about the Chevrolet Equinox. The Chevrolet Equinox returns in 2018 with a completely new generation, and it is simply unrecognizable.
Available starting at only $ 25,295 at Vickar Chevrolet, the 2018 Equinox is 400 pounds lighter compared to its previous generation. The result: improved road handling and improved fuel economy.
All the engines you could ever need the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox
One of the biggest changes made to the all-new 2018 Equinox this year is the arrival of a four-cylinder, 1.5-liter turbocharged engine under the hood of the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox. With a small cylinder capacity, the new Equinox promises an average fuel consumption of just 8.3 liters per 100 kilometers.
And thanks to the magic of turbocharging, the new 2018 Equinox’ performance is much more impressive than its low fuel economy numbers would suggest. Indeed, the new-gen Equinox’s 1.5-liter turbocharged engine offers a total of 170 horsepower and 203 pounds-feet of torque.
For those who need to tow heavier loads, or simply want more power, the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is also offered with a second turbocharged engine, this time with a 2.0-liter displacement. With 252 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, it offers a towing capacity of up to 3,500 pounds.
This engine is therefore more powerful than most V6 engines with the same towing capacity, but it is also more fuel-efficient. The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox will also offer a diesel engine later this year. No question about it, you have everything you need in terms of engines in the 2018 Equinox lineup.
This 1.6-liter diesel engine, which is also turbocharged, promises exemplary fuel economy with fuel consumption ratings as low as 5.7 L/100 km on the road. For an SUV of this size, that's unheard of!
The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is packed with technology
In a world that is more connected than ever, the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox will now be equipped with an infotainment system that features Android Auto and Apple CarPlay. These systems basically duplicate your phone’s screen onto the infotainment touchscreen for improved connectivity and convenient.
