Three Turbocharged Engine Options & 2018 Equinox MPG
The 2018 Equinox near me is available in several displacements. Standard, the SUV packs a 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-four capable of 170 horsepower and 203 lb.-ft. of torque. Power is transmitted through a six-speed automatic transmission, and both front-wheel and all-wheel drive are available.
Following the standard powerplant is a 2.0-liter turbo engine that ups output to 252 horsepower and 260 lb.-ft. of torque. Backed by a nine-speed automatic transmission, this power increase gives the Equinox a bit of towing muscle (3,500 lbs. maximum). EPA-estimates place this option at 29 mpg highway (FWD).
Anticipated later this year, the 1.6-liter turbo-diesel option will offer "maximum efficiency and capability," according to the automaker. Rated at 137 horsepower and 240 lb.-ft. of torque, this displacement is also expected to offer up to 40 mpg highway, according to 2018 Equinox reviews.
