2018 Equinox vs. 2017 Equinox: What's Changed?

Chevy's best-selling compact SUV, the Equinox, is back and better than ever this model year, showing off a lower curb weight, fresh styling, three new powertrains, added safety features and much more. Among the most talked about updates for 2018 are the additions of Apple CarPlay/Android Auto, Teen Driver safety parameters and last, but not least, the available turbodiesel engine (available September 2017).

Continue reading below to learn more about the redesigned 2018 Chevy Equinox in Decatur, including cabin features, engine options, MPG and safety equipment!

Chevy Equinox Features 2018

The Equinox sharpens its look this year with a thorough nip and tuck. Slimmer headlights, sculpted body lines and a leaner shape, among other changes, make the Equinox a hot option for style-minded shoppers. The interior also receives a slight makeover, enhancing forward visibility and adding a more intuitive center console.

When you shop around our Chevy dealership in the Brettwood Village shopping center, you'll find three well-equipped trims to choose from: LS, LT and Premier. Starting on the 2018 Equinox LS, buyers will enjoy plenty of features, including keyless entry/ignition, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a rearview camera, Bluetooth connectivity, a 7-inch touchscreen media player and Apple CarPlay/Android Auto. It also comes standard with an OnStar 4G LTE WiFi hotspot for those who wish to subscribe to an in-car data plan.

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.

Equinox 2018 Safety

The 2018 Equinox excels in safety, offering a plethora of impressive new technologies this year. In addition to standard equipment like six airbags and rollover sensors, all models are now equipped with Teen Driver programmable parameters, which allow parents to better monitor their kids' activity behind the wheel. 2018 Chevy Equinox reviews are also impressed by the new Rear Seat Reminder features, which prompts the driver to check the backseat before exiting the vehicle.

Also newly available this year are automatic high beams, lane keep assist with lane departure warning, low-speed forward automatic braking, forward collision alert with following distance indicator, safety alert seat and a 360-degree bird's-eye view camera system.
