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.
Like the many models before it, the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox features a modern, expressive design and is equipped with the latest in vehicle connectivity and safety features.
