The 2018 Equinox Diesel Offers Best in Class Fuel-Efficiency

2018-Equinox-Diesel

The all-new 2018 Equinox is a fresh and modern compact SUV featuring an expressive design, increased cargo space, the latest connectivity and purposeful technologies to help keep passengers safe, comfortable and connected. We’re excited to announce the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox will also be available in a Diesel model!

Get ready to drive past the pumps as the diesel model offers an EPA-certified 39 MPG highway with the available 1.6L turbo-diesel engine. This number is expected to put this SUV at the top of its class, having greater highway mileage than the 2017 Nissan Rogue Hybrid and 2017 Toyota RAV4 Hybrid.  A 577-mile range means the Equinox diesel can drive farther between fill-ups, like going from Baltimore to Grand Rapids, Michigan. Pricing for the turbo-diesel model starts at $31,435 when it goes on sale this fall.

With 240 lb-ft of torque and variable-geometry turbocharger, it will generate strong torque at low rpm and more horsepower at higher rpm. The strong torque provides the feeling of a larger engine, with exceptional smoothness and quietness. The engine also features stop/start technology to optimize efficiency in stop-and-go driving and it is compatible with B20 bio-diesel fuel.

Chevrolet continues to lead with technologies that offer customers more choice. The full Equinox lineup will give drivers more choices for performance and fuel-efficiency. Developed by GM’s Diesel Product Center in Torino, Italy, more than 24,000 hours of computer analysis and more than 4.35 million miles of driving were spent on perfecting this vehicle. But what matters most is the adventures and experiences where you will take it!

2018 Chevrolet Equinox: Lean, Mean… and Strong

1495422367510

The all-new Chevrolet Equinox has been completely redesigned for the 2018 model year; a redesign that includes shedding 400 pounds of extra weight! So, what do drivers gain by this 10% body-mass loss? For starters, our most popular crossover is now more agile on the road and offers drivers a more safe, comfortable driving experience.

Thanks to a lighter, stiffer, and stronger structure, the 2018 Equinox rewards drivers in the following areas:

SAFETY: High-strength and ultra-high strength steel creates a safety cage around its passengers, which are complimented by the high-level restraint systems and available safety features.

RIDE & HANDLING: By reducing the chassis flex in the Equinox suspension system, Chevrolet engineers were able to focus more on overall ride comfort and precision on the road.

QUIETNESS & REFINEMENT: The stiffer body-structure of the Equinox also pays off when it comes to blocking out exterior noise and vibrations. Contributing the overall weight loss of the Equinox, the stiffer body-structure also means that engineers could reduce the amount of sound-absorbing materials in the overall design.

FUEL ECONOMY: This might seem like a no-brainer, but we’re pretty excited about this added benefit of the 2018 Equinox! The lower the weight, the better then fuel efficiency. The all-new Equinox delivers EPA estimated 32MPG and 29MPG on the highway with the standard 1.5L turbo and 2.0L turbo engines. The diesel engine offers a GM-estimated 40MPG on the highway.
