Driving Performance

Chevy realizes there are times you may need added performance for your vehicle. That is why there is now an optional switch from front wheel drive to all wheel drive feature when needed, making it the perfect vehicle for snowy and icy roads in the winter months. On select Equinox vehicles, there is also the ability to tow, while being able to change the settings of the transmission for better-towing efficiency. The Equinox has also been constructed to ensure ample seating for five passengers. When there is a need for additional cargo space, the 60/40 split rear seat can be folded in a number of different configurations or entirely flat to provide 63.5 cubic feet of space.

The 2018 Chevy Equinox comes standard with a 2.0L turbocharged 4 cylinder engine. It produces 252 horsepower and 260 of torque. With a 9 speed transmission, the Equinox can go from zero to sixty miles per an hour in just 7.2 seconds. The updated engine makes the Equinox perfect for both city and highway driving. For those looking for a different option, the 1.6L Turbo Diesel engine offers the best fuel performance compared to all other vehicles on the market in the same class.

The Equinox offers the highest fuel performance in its class of 39 MPG with the 1.6 Turbo Diesel engine compared to all other vehicles in its class. In addition, to help improve the fuel performance of the Equinox, it is 396 pounds lighter than the previous year’s models. The optional AWD has also been updated to allow the driver to manually control between front wheel and four wheel drive depending on the road conditions and weather. The standard 1.5L Turbo Engine provides 32 MPG, offering customers both performance and efficiency.

Safety & Tech Features

While the Equinox is a compact SUV, one thing that is not small is the tech features available. There have been a number of technology upgrades in the 2018 Equinox, like compatibility with Apple CarPlay and Chevrolet MyLink. These allow you to drive in comfort and style, while also staying connected to your mobile device. The Equinox is also OnStar capable, with a subscription, and is also able to be wifi capable, turning your vehicle into a mobile hotspot, and keeping you connected wherever you are.
