The Chevy Equinox: Performance and Capabilities

The all-new 2018 Chevy Equinox stands as an efficient yet powerful SUV for drivers seeking a comfortable yet exciting driving experience without spending a fortune at the pump. Whether commuting, adventuring on weekends or simply running errands, the spacious yet intrepid Chevy Equinox comes fully equipped to exceed expectations with its thoughtful design and efficient performance. With three powertrain options to select from, and eight trim levels to select from as equipped with the aforementioned engines, the 2018 Chevy Equinox offers delivers a variety of options specifically tailored to suit a variety of driving styles and exacting specifications.

 Available Engines

The 2018 Chevy Equinox offers three exceptional engines to deliver the precise balance between power and efficiency for drivers from Pekin to Morton. 

A 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder DOHC engine comes standard with base trim levels, paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. This efficient yet formidable engine produces 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet for exceptional towing and accelerating performance. Boasting 32 highway miles per gallon, the base 1.5-liter turbocharged engine hardly delivers forgettable performance, but rather rises to the occasion to outstrip the competition.

Available as a unique option within the segment, a 1.6-liter turbocharged diesel engine further increases torque output for enhanced towing capabilities. Offering 137 horsepower and 240 pound-feet coupled with the increased efficiency offered from the unique construction of diesel engines, this engine provides an impressive 39 highway miles per gallon in addition to its low-RPM, quiet performance.

Lastly, for drivers seeking maximal exhilaration from their Equinox, a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine exerting an impressive 252 horsepower and 260 pound-feet comes available. Paired with a nine-speed automatic transmission and resulting in an impressive maximum towing capacity of 3,500 pounds, this option delivers performance befitting of more sport-oriented vehicles as opposed to the unassuming body style of the compact SUV segment.

Mechanical Ingenuity

The 2018 Chevy Equinox features a variety of innovative and advanced mechanical amendments to the aforementioned powertrains. Switchable all-wheel drive available on the LS, LT and Premier trim levels allows drivers to toggle between front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive at the press of a button, delivering superior efficiency or traction, depending on driving conditions. Furthermore, when the Chevy Equinox is outfitted with the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine listed above, a Tow/Haul button comes equipped for drivers to simply press the corresponding button, prompting the transmission to shift for more efficient and powerful towing capabilities. Further amending the performance of the Chevy Equinox, four-wheel antilock disc brakes with low speed forward automatic braking are available for collision avoidance, as well as maintaining control over your vehicle at all times.

Trim Levels

Available in eight trims and equipped with one of the available engines for each, the 2018 Chevy Equinox provides drivers with the capability they desire at an affordable price:

  • L 1.5-liter Turbo
  • LS 1.5-liter Turbo
  • LT 1.5-liter Turbo
