Chevrolet is ready to tackle new competition and to attract new customers in the US with the launch of the next generation Equinox. The pricing has already been announced, with the 2018 Equinox starting at $24,475 when it goes on sale this spring.
The 2018 Equinox will offer three turbocharged engines, including the segment’s first turbo-diesel. The standard 1.5L engine will be available at launch, with the 2.0L Turbo and diesel options available in the second quarter of 2017. The 2.0L engine will be coupled to GM’s new nine-speed automatic transmission, offering an exciting driving experience with more horsepower and torque.
The 2018 Equinox will be available in L, LS, LT and Premier trim levels, in FWD or AWD combinations.
Chevrolet’s connectivity technologies include a standard 7 or an 8-inch color touchscreen with MyLink infotainment designed to support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as an available OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.
Rear Seat Reminder and Teen Driver are also offered. Rear Seat Reminder can provide an alert when the rear doors are used during or just before a trip, prompting you to double-check for valuables left in the back seat when you exit the vehicle. Teen Driver allows parents to monitor driving habits and facilitates discussions to help encourage better driving habits, even when parents are not in the vehicle.
