What Do the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox Redesign Changes Bring?

The 2018 Chevy Equinox changes are landing in Naperville and Aurora, IL, and we’re finally getting our first look. From a lighter footprint to new performance options, this popular crossover is destined to be a top choice for busy drivers who want a dynamic ride that delivers on its promises. Read on to learn what changes you can expect, then drop by Chevrolet of Naperville to see how easy financing a new Equinox could be.

Innovative New Additions

According to the experts at Edmunds, the sprightly new Chevy Equinox is slightly smaller than the previous trim, which, when combined with the efficient new engine options, should help to increase the vehicle’s fuel efficiency. Drivers will now be able to choose from a standard 1.5L 4-cylinder engine for 31 mpg/highway efficiency, an optional 2.0L 4-cylinder motor for an estimated 28 mpg/highway fuel economy, or an available 1.6L inline 4-cylinder diesel powerplant that Chevy believes will deliver as much as 40 mpg/highway fuel efficiency. These engines can be mated to an optional 9-speed automatic transmission to aid in control and improved economy.

In addition to new powerplants, the Equinox offers drivers access to expanded safety features that include a new Safety Alert Seat, a Surround Vision Camera system that provides a 360-degree view of the area surrounding the vehicle, Low-speed Forward Automatic Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Rear Seatbelt Reminders, and the new Forward Collision Alert with Following Distance Indicator.

2017 Equinox Carryovers

Of course, as with any refresh, certain features will carry over from the previous model year. In the case of the new Chevy Equinox, that’s a good thing. Buyers will still have access to the Chevy MyLink infotainment system that offers Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity for their compatible smartphone. This system delivers maps, news, weather, music, and hands-free calling via the intuitive touchscreen interface. OnStar will remain standard as well, offering 4G Wi-Fi connectivity and an Automatic Crash Response system when properly equipped.
