2018 Chevrolet Equinox Review
The Chevrolet Equinox has long been considered the top dog when it comes to the efficient crossover segment. The peppy yet powerful four-cylinder engine churns out an impressive amount of power, year after year. The first 2018 Chevrolet Equinox reviews are in and, as expected, critics are praising the new model.
The all-new Equinox weighs in at 400 pounds less than its predecessor, further optimizing fuel economy, and is available in front-wheel and all-wheel drive configurations. The standard 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine comes mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and produces 170 hp and 203 lb-ft of torque. The latest Equinox rides on a new platform, a much needed change considering the crossover has been riding on the Theta platform since 2005.
The latest model benefits from start/stop technology that has been optimized to operate seamlessly. The Equinox rolls out smoothly and eliminates most road noise on the highway. The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is still as fuel efficient as ever; the popular crossover earns up to an EPA-estimated 26/32 mpg city/highway*.
Perhaps even better, the new Equinox will come with a larger engine and available diesel powertrain later this year. We here at Bill Walsh Streator can’t wait for new updates that will make the 2018 Equinox even better!
