(Kyle Campbell) However, Chevrolet wanted to prove that its latest entry into the small crossover market, the redesigned 2018 Equinox, was up for more than that.
Chevrolet has given the 2018 Equinox fresh looks, new engines and enhanced safety to help keep it comeptitive in the fast-growing small SUV segment.
Though the 2018 Equinox offers slightly less space than the outgoing generation, it’s not noticeable.
The Chevy Equinox should remeain one of the best-selling small SUVs in the country during the 2018 model year.
(Kyle Campbell)Performance-wise, the 2018 Equinox is nothing to write home about, but a few adjustments have been made to punch things up a bit in this department.
2018 Chevrolet Equinox First Drive
The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox features more refined powertrains, higher-quality interior materials and better smartphone integration among other things, all of which make it more competitive than ever before.
On lower trims, the Equinox features an abundance of textured plastics and seats covered in cloth upholstery.
EPA-estimated fuel economy stands at 28 mpg combined with front-wheel drive and 26 mpg combined when equipped with optional all-wheel drive.
In addition to its spacious interior, the Equinox also boasts a vastly improved interior design and materials.
Additional available features include navigation, ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, a panoramic sunroof and a 360-degree parking camera.
according to Rated at 170 horses, it cedes power leadership to the 1.5Ts in the best-selling Honda CR-V (190 hp) and No.
Chevrolet has had a seat at the high-roller table with its Equinox, but even after 13 years it’s a perennial fifth-place seller.
The price seems right—starting at $24,475, the Equinox undercuts the cheapest 1.5T variants of the Escape and CR-V by $1,673 and $3,160, respectively.
The Equinox and Escape use a similar jointly developed six-speed automatic, and the CR-V gets a CVT.
But Chevy’s all-new 2018 Equinox brings a fresh pile of chips to the game.
