During this year Los Angeles Motor Show, Chevrolet will introduce the 2018 Equinox, a compact SUV that will be refreshed with the latest connectivity, more safety features and a trio of propulsion choices, including the segment’s only turbo-diesel.

The new Equinox’s exterior has the global Chevrolet design cues and the shapes seen in the Volt, Malibu and Cruze. Projector-beam headlamps are standard, along with LED daytime running lamps. Uplevel models feature LED taillamps. 

The 2018 Equinox also offers Chevrolet’s latest connectivity technologies, including 7 and 8 inch MyLink infotainment systems designed to support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as an available OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.

A range of three turbocharged engines, including the segment’s first turbo-diesel in North America, provides customers more choices. They include a 1.5L turbo, a 2.0L turbo that is matched with GM’s new nine-speed automatic transmission and a 1.6L turbo-diesel. The lineup makes the new Equinox Chevrolet’s first model in North America with an all-turbocharged, multi-engine propulsion lineup.

The new Equinox is approximately 400 pounds (180 kg) lighter than the current model, for a 10 percent weight reduction. The switchable AWD system enhances efficiency by disconnecting from the rear axle when not needed. A unique kneeling rear seat enables a flat rear load floor and up to 63.5 cubic feet (1,798 liters) of maximum cargo space.
