The all-new 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is all about efficiency. Chevy has introduced a lighter, much improved chassis and a smaller, yet more powerful turbocharged engine. Both engine options are comparatively smaller but the might of these turbocharged engines will blow most people away. The impressive mileage and superb handling are also noticeable improvement from previous year.
2018 Chevrolet Equinox got an overhauled chassis that is much more lighter and more efficient, in order to accommodate the lighter chassis, the exterior of the 2018 Equinox has been vastly redesigned and we are impressed with the end result. The wheelbase remained unchanged from previous year but most of the improvements blend nicely and there’s a sense of continuity even with the brand-new exterior on this year’s Equinox.
The interior has vastly redesigned in this new 2018 Chevy Equinox. The simple yet elegant design on two-tone color sure looks upscale, however, we are not completely sold on the plastic material used in the interior. There’s a touch screen that controls the infotainment system and most technology savvy driver will find it feature-rich, but our favorite is the elevated second row which offers a stunning view from the back seat. We found the leg room is adequate and head room should be sufficient for most everyday Joe, however, can be a little too small for oversized drivers.
Under the Hood
The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox comes in two variants: 1.5-liter turbo charged, four-cylinder 170 hp and a 2.0-liter turbo charged, four-cylinder, 225 hp. The newly redesigned chassis has shed over 400 pounds, leading to dramatic improvement in both fuel efficiency and overall handling. The fully automatic transmission complements the impressive EPA rating of 26-32-28 mpg (city-highway-combined) and offers a quiet, comfortable ride./p>
The 1.5T variant starts at around $25,000 and the 2.0T starts around $30,0000. Considering the new, stylish exterior and overall quality build of this vehicle, we think the 2018 Equinox is priced very fairly. But as always, these are prices for the base models. Expect to spend few extra grands depending on what packages and options you pick.
