2018 Chevrolet SUVs - Equinox - Nehls Chevrolet

Crossovers and SUVs are extremely popular throughout North America, making the debut of 2018 models in Canada even more important. Chevrolet introduced the all-new 2018 Traverse and Equinox at the Canadian International Auto Show in Toronto. The new SUVs mark a continuing reinvigoration of the entire Chevrolet lineup.

The 2018 Chevrolet SUVs are the third and fourth updated models to be released within the past year. The first two were the Trax and Bolt EV. The two new SUVs are a sign that Chevrolet is continuing to move forward by updating existing models.

The 2018 Chevrolet Traverse boasts a full redesign. Updated styling and advanced technologies make it a top competitor throughout the segment. The latest model includes best-in-class third-row legroom and a full list of active safety features.

The new Chevrolet Equinox boasts a 1.6-liter turbo-diesel four-cylinder engine that delivers a GM-estimated 136 hp and 236 lb-ft of torque. Official fuel economy estimates are forthcoming.

The Equinox’s new diesel engine marks another addition to Chevrolet’s portfolio as well.

“Market trends in Canada tell us that two-thirds of all customer purchases are SUVs and pickup trucks. Last year we shook up the truck market with the new mid-sized Colorado and we’ve reinvigorated our car lineup with Volt, Cruze and Malibu,” said Laura Pacey, Chevrolet Canada brand director.

We here at Nehl’s Chevrolet are excited for the 2018 model year!
