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.

Harnessing that power for responsive handling is 4-wheel independent suspension that helps hug every corner.

Behind the wheel is a high-tech cockpit designed for driving. From cutting-edge technology like the available color Head-Up Display (HUD), to the 7-inch diagonal color touch-screen, everything that went into the new Camaro was genetically engineered to give you the most out of it.

Camaro owners already stand out from the crowd. And with a wide range of available dealer-installed accessories, you can take that iconic look up a notch.

Sonic, Camaro and Equinox Named 2013 Automotive “Best Buys” by Consumers Digest

Consumers Digest Best Buy award - 001At Chevy, we’re proud to say that each and every vehicle we build is designed to offer the best possible features at the best possible price. But it’s not just us saying that. Consumers Digest thinks so, too.

The 2013 Consumers Digest Automotive “Best Buy” picks are out, and three Chevy vehicles – Camaro, Sonic, and Equinox – made the list.

Consumers Digest chooses its “Best Buys” based on which cars in each segment provide the most value for the price. Vehicles are driven under a variety of conditions and evaluated based on the standards of an average car buyer. Experts then assess each model on both design (including styling, ergonomics, seating and cargo space) and performance (including shifting, steering, braking, acceleration, ride quality and fuel economy).

“Value, as we see it, is based on purchase price and ownership costs relative to quality, performance and subjective factors, such as comfort and design,” says Randy Weber, publisher of Consumers Digest.

Weber and his colleagues saw plenty of value in the Chevy fleet.

Consumers Digest Best Buy award - 002

The Equinox was honored with a Compact SUV “Best Buy” title for its fourth year in a row, owing to its stylish appointments, class-leading legroom, versatile MyFlex® rear seating, meticulous craftsmanship and money-saving 32 MPG highway.

Consumers Digest Best Buy award - 003Camaro zoomed ahead of the pack in the Sporty Cars category, and picked up its fourth consecutive “Best Buy” award. The legendary Camaro is known for its sexy exterior, powerful engine, and for taking drivers on an exhilarating ride.

Consumers Digest Best Buy award - 004

In the Subcompact category, the Chevrolet Sonic made quite an impression on the Consumers Digest judges, picking up its very first “Best Buy” title. It’s no surprise why, either. The Sonic is the first and only car in its class to come with 10 standard air bags.  It’s also the only car in its class to receive a 5-star Overall Vehicle Score for safety from NHTSA. Not only that, but the Sonic is the only small car that’s built right here in America and the only car in its class with an available turbocharged engine – offering up to 40 MPG highway.That’s a lot of ‘only’-s!

So whether you want to head up to the cottage with kids, dog and skis in tow; zoom down the highway in high style; or just zip across town in comfort and safety – it’s good to know there’s a tested and approved Chevy for every driver, at every price point.
