Chevrolet unveiled its Equinox with all-new 2018 Equinox. Although this new compact crossover carries over the same nameplate, it shares little with its predecessor. In fact, this one boasts a slew of techie connectivity features.
The Chevy Cruze, the 2018 Equinox comes with a 7- or 8-inch-diagonal MyLink infotainment system, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as an OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.
The high-tech features don’t end there. Equinox also offers a virtual laundry list of safety tech, too, including but not limited to features called surround vision, Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking, and Rear Cross Traffic Alert.
In addition to two turbocharged 1.5-liter and 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine options, Chevy also offers a 1.6-liter turbo-diesel engine as well.
Notably, the Equinox is the first in the Chevy lineup to offer an all-turbocharged engine line. So, feel free to bust out your “turbo” branded sunglasses from the junk drawer. What’s more, the efficiency of a turbo engine is further enhanced by the Equinox’s switchable all-wheel drive system. That means the rear wheels are only engaged to drive when they need to be, which saves fuel.
Folks interested in checking out the new Equinox won’t have to wait long. The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox goes on sale in North America during the first quarter of 2017. It will roll out to global markets later in the year.
