2018 Chevy Equinox Review

The manufacturer’s website offers the right prompt—have you ever wondered what it’s like to have it all? Well, with the 2018 Chevy Equinox, you won’t have to wonder anymore.

Our team at The Lake Dealerships wrote this crossover review for our friends in Lewistown, State College, Bellefonte, Port Matilda, and the surrounding area. We hope that you enjoy!

Top Available Features – 2018 Chevy Equinox

2018 Chevy Equinox Review1.6L Turbo-Diesel Engine. This efficient machine can bless you with 40 mpg1 on the highway! However, although its given highway fuel economy rating, you’ll probably feel most blessed while you’re swiping your card at the gas station.

63.5 Cubic-Foot Maximum Cargo Volume. That’s plenty of room to carry just about anything you want.

10 Active Safety Features. Here’s a list of what you can look forward to: Low-speed forward automatic braking, lane-keep assist with lane departure warning, forward collision alert, rear vision camera, rear cross traffic alert, rear park assist, side blind zone alert, lane change alert, Intellibeam® headlamps, safety alert seat, and surround vision.

4G LTE Wi-Fi® from OnStar. This way, everybody can stay up-to-date on their phone or handheld device.

Other Powerful Engine Options

In addition to the available 1.6L turbo-diesel engine mentioned above, there are several other powerful engine options for the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox.

On one hand, you could go with the standard 1.5L turbocharged engine. However, although it’s standard in name, it’s hardly standard in deed. In fact, it has a highway fuel economy rating2 of up to 32 mpg!

2018 Chevy Equinox ReviewOn the other hand, you could upgrade to the 2.0L turbocharged engine. When you pair it with the Equinox’s advanced nine-speed automatic transmission, this monster can deliver 252 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque.

Versatile Capabilities of the Chevy Equinox

Last, but not least, we must ask the most important question that you can ask of any crossover. What can it do?

When it comes to this question, we’d like to put the spotlight on two of the Chevrolet’s smallest buttons: the all-wheel drive switch and the tow/haul model switch. Despite their small size, these buttons have massive effects.

Switchable AWD is available on the Chevy Equinox LS, the Chevy Equinox LT, and the Chevy Equinox Premier. In a nutshell, it gives you enhanced traction and control at the tip of your finger.

Tow/Haul Mode is available with the 2.0L turbocharged engine. Basically, it gives you some help as you try to grapple with those heavy trailer loads.
