Chevrolet Equinox: Comfortable, Safe, and Capable

The Chevrolet Equinox provides the versatility Tennessee drivers are looking for in an SUV, along with comfort, capability, technology, and more. The Equinox catches the eye with its projector-beam headlights. There are four trim levels for drivers to choose from, each of which builds on the previous, adding luxury and giving the Chevrolet a more premium feel.

           

New Features on the 2018 Chevy Equinox

The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is actually the start of the latest generation, meaning that you will find numerous differences between this and the previous model years. The exterior is new with a more muscular and lean appearance and extra aerodynamics. Projector-beam headlamps and LED daytime running lamps now come standard with horizontal tail lamps in the rear. Inside, the new architecture allows for the instrument panel to sit down and away, freeing up space while the new, lower windshield base lets you see more of the road. You will also find a new "kneeling" rear seat that helps create a flat loading floor and newly available denim-style fabric for durability and style. Chevrolet MyLink has been updated for the 2018 Equinox, now giving you a 7 or 8-inch touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and OnStar 4G LTE.  

One of the biggest updates for the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is the expanded list of safety features. Teen Driver is now available, giving you the power to set limits for your teen and then review an in-vehicle report card. In addition to Rear Cross Traffic Alert and other advanced safety features from the 2017 Equinox, the 2018 model adds a Safety Alert Seat, Forward Collision Alert featuring Following Distance Indicator, Surround Vision, Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking, Rear Seat Reminder, and Lane Keep Assist featuring Lane Departure Warning. Under the hood, you will notice the first turbocharged diesel in a compact SUV offered in North America, along with a new 9-speed automatic and two familiar gas engines. The Switchable AWD system is also new, and the Equinox lost about 400 pounds for 2018.

Exploring the Equinox History

The Chevrolet Equinox made its debut in 2005 as the brand's first crossover utility vehicle. It came with a 185-horsepower 3.4-liter V6, a multi-flex rear seat, and 68.6 cubic feet of storage. The first Equinox had standard remote keyless entry, 16-inch wheels, air conditioning, and electric power steering. StabiliTrak electronic stability control became standard in 2007 and a new Sport model with 264 horsepower appeared in 2008.

New direct-injection engines arrived for the 2010 Equinox, marking the first time drivers could pick from a 4-cylinder or V6 and front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive. Chevy added FlexFuel capabilities to the V6 engine for the 2011 model year, but otherwise kept it the same following the thorough redesign the previous year. For 2012, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, lane departure warning, and collision warning became standard. The popular mobile Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities were added for the 2015 model year as an option.
