Chevrolet has been the leader in a lot of categories in the automotive industry over the last few years, but in what may be the most unexpected statistic, the iconic American car company is mastering the art of weight loss. The 2018 Chevy Equinox is a prime example of shedding weight, losing 400 pounds from the 2017 model. The result is a sleeker vehicle with better performance and efficiency. The new All-wheel drive Equinox earns an EPA estimate of 30 mpg on the highway and 26 mpg in combined freeway and city driving, Be among the first to drive the new Equinox now at Chapman Chevrolet.

Diesel Option Coming This Fall

The 2018 Equinox is equipped with a surprisingly powerful 1.5L turbo four-cylinder engine that’s paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. If you can wait just a bit, Chevy is introducing a 1.6L turbo diesel, as well as a peppier 2.0L turbo gas engine in a few months. The diesel engine is expected to offer fuel efficiency in the hybrid range, somewhere around 40 mpg. The company also announced it will offer a nine-speed automatic transmission that increases efficiency and takes advantage of all the power in every shift range sometime this fall.

Sculpted Exterior Completely Redesigned

The 2018 Chevy Equinox has an athletic, muscular look that starts in the front with a sweeping hoodline and carries through the sculpted sides to the broad, authoritative rear end. Its relationship to the popular Malibu is unmistakable, with similar lines and appeal. Features such as LED daytime running lamps and smart chrome accents create a modern look sure to appeal to today’s commuter. The smart design continues in the interior, where plenty of room and storage for electronics, sunglasses and the inevitable what-not reflect the needs of today’s passengers. Controls are ergonomically arranged to let the driver concentrate on the road. A touchscreen infotainment system works with your smartphone to provide access to music, apps, podcasts and other forms of entertainment. Chevy’s 4G LTE Wi-Fi now offers unlimited data plans so all passengers can stay in touch with the outside world during daily commutes or long road trips.

Safety First With New Equinox Features

The 2018 Chevy Equinox has a number of available driver assistance features to help make sure you and your passengers get home safely. Low speed forward automatic braking takes over to help reduce the severity of front-end collisions. Lane keep assist gently guides your car into the proper lane if you should start to drift without using turn signals. A rear vision camera, rear cross traffic alert and rear park assist all help you avoid collisions with surprise objects and people coming from the back end. The new Equinox is ready and waiting for your test drive at Chapman Chevrolet.
