2018 Chevrolet Equinox Engines

2018 Chevrolet Equinox In Marshall, TX
2017 Version – Chevrolet Equinox

2018 Chevrolet Equinox

The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox boasts an all-new design and updated interior that redefine the midsize crossover segment. The all-new model brings more to the road than new styling and refined comfort though. The Chevrolet Equinox packs in three new turbocharged engines that offer major advantages over the outgoing powertrains.

Types

The 2017 Equinox feature just two engines: a 2.5-liter four cylinder and 3.6-liter V6. Neither engine is available for the 2018 model year. Instead, drivers will have three turbocharged engines to choose from.

Specs

The standard 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine comes paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. That combination delivers an impressive 170 hp. Drivers also have the option of upgrading to the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission. That available engine pumps out 252 hp.

New Addition

Later this summer, Chevrolet plans to introduce the segment’s first turbodiesel engine. The 1.6-liter turbodiesel four-cylinder engine produces a respectable 137 hp and earns up to a GM-estimated 40 hwy mpg*.

The Vehicle

The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox weighs in 400 lbs. less than the outgoing model. An available switchable all-wheel drive system offers improved handling without dramatically hindering fuel economy.

We here at Nehl’s Chevrolet are pumped to see the 2018 Equinox arriving with more powerful and efficient engines under the hood!

Off-Road Driving Safety Tips

Off-roading adventures are a great way to make some great summer memories, but only if you travel with caution. Off-roading brings more hazards and dangers than driving on paved roadways. Fortunately, a few safety tips are all you need to get out safely at the end of the day. We here at Nehl’s Chevrolet have a few off-road driving safety tips that will help you enjoy your time on the trails this summer!

Be Aware

Stay aware of your surroundings at all times. Keep an eye out for any dangerous departure and break-over angles. Failing to recognize the danger could result in significant damage to your vehicle if you fail to clear it. It pays to get out of the vehicle and walk through areas you’re uncertain about as well. Keep an eye on your speed too.

Pedals

Keep both feet on the pedals at all time for an optimized response time. Moving your foot from the gas to the brake pedal wastes a second that could make all the difference. Putting both feet on the pedals speeds up your reaction time.

Know Your Vehicle

It pays to know every aspect of your vehicle, especially the undercarriage. See what the lowest hanging parts are and determine the ground clearance available to you. Damaging your vehicle won’t end well, especially if you’re in the middle of harsh terrain.
