Newest Chevrolet Equinox Got Game
Back in 2004 when the Chevrolet Equinox first debuted, it was a strong seller helping to carve out the now surging small SUV market segment. Over time the Equinox slid to place holder status in the evolving General Motors family.
The newest 2018 Chevrolet Equinox leverages its 13-year running start with a stunning new model that easily elbows out more expensive competitors.
The exterior of the new Equinox is stunning, following a sculpted motif also evident in GM lines like Cadillac. With an athletic forward arching stance, and an imposing and complex front grill and lighting design, “small” doesn’t leap to mine on first sight.
The power and handling of the new Equinox are notably sophisticated with a base 1.5 liter 4 cylinder engine providing satisfying response, boosted to a sprint with the 2.0 liter turbo 4 kicking a healthy 252 horsepower.
Even with the All Wheel Drive option the highway mileage slips to a still competitive 28-mpg highway, with 22 mpg in the city.
The Chevrolet Equinox is attentive to interior comfort and finish details and comes with the comprehensive MyLink infotainment system with standard on-board Wi-Fi.
The ample interior space includes bonus rear seat leg and headroom and cargo load.
The Equinox rolls comfortably in the $30,000 to $38,000 range.
