Get to Know the Fully Redesigned 2018 Chevy Equinox
Once you’ve had a chance to get the scoop on the all-new 2018 Chevy Equinox, it’s a safe bet that you’ll know exactly why the Equinox had no problem rising to the top of Chevy’s 2016 sales charts, only ceding the top spot to the perennially beloved Silverado pickup. That’s quite a testament to the winning design of a relatively young model, and new and old fans alike can only look forward to plenty of considerate improvements and additions, which are already finding the 2018 Chevy Equinox receiving wide praise from critics and industry media. With that in mind, we’ve got all of the details to get you up to speed on this outstanding new model, available now at Ray Chevrolet.
Plenty of New Additions
At first glance, there are some obvious changes to the Equinox’s smoothly sculpted form that are definitely clear, making for a smaller and lighter final product on the whole. What’s less clear from the outside, however, is how much more has truly been packed in despite the trim new look. Industry leading analysts at Edmunds take the time to point out in their extended review that “downsizing has barely impacted the Equinox’s spacious interior.” Of course, spacious comfort is only the beginning of the 2018 Equinox’s strengths, as it continues to demonstrate its abilities to go above and beyond meeting the needs (and wants) of a wide variety of drivers.
An Ideal Suite of Modern Powertrains
Offering a boldly simplified choice between two turbocharged four-cylinder engines and a 1.6-liter diesel, the 2018 Equinox and its four diverse trim options also push the envelope on efficiency. Achieving a peak of 40 mpg highway in its most efficient configuration, and with stop-start technology included standard on all models, there’s no question that the new model can easily compete with the most economical competition both in its class and beyond. To make technical matters even more ideal, the Equinox’s top-tier 2.0-liter turbo engine configuration has been paired with an improved 9-speed transmission, lending a considerable boost in torque and horsepower to help keep ahead of the pack with confidence.
Enough Tech to Stay Ahead of the Curve
Chevrolet has put some notable effort into squeezing as many technological accommodations into the new Equinox, too, offering a full roster of standard high-tech safety features, an important added value. Next-generation details like a gesture-controlled rear liftgate also help to provide practical new convenience as well as accommodation for drivers with limited mobility. Connective features like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto make things easy, particularly when paired with what has been regularly called one of the most intuitive, capable, and no-nonsense touchscreen infotainment systems in the industry.
Taking big strides from the already highly successful previous generation, the new 2018 Equinox stands as a serious rising star worth setting your sights on this season.
