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!
