There are so many people who have expressed interest in the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox. You are therefore not alone in your desires. The equinox brand has been able to attract so much interest from the car enthusiasts since its launch in 2005. Its second generation has begun to lose taste and this is what necessitated the need for upgrading. With this, the idea of the 2018 Equinox was conceived.
In as much the previous model had so much to be admired, the customers had an issue with its fuel economy and poor safety equipment. With this, it can only mean that the new Chevrolet Equinox model will have to pay attention to these particular areas and get to improve on them.
Some spy shots were taken and some of these modifications could be easily noticed. This article will take you through some of the pieces of information that have so far been gathered concerning this vehicle.
2018 Chevrolet Equinox Exterior
The vehicle has undergone a complete revision. It will be launched on a new platform, otherwise commonly known as the D2XX platform. This is a deliberate move to improve on this car’s fuel economy and performance since this platform will work to reduce the curb weight. It will also have a sportier look than its predecessor.
Most of the changes in this machine will be observed at the front. We look forward to a new grille with better-LED projector headlights and DRLs on LT and LTZ trims. The consumers should also expect new fog lights. Reliable sources have hinted at the possibility that the higher trim levels will come with a large grille with a chrome accent.
Not so much can be said when it comes to the body design since the spy shots taken were of a camouflaged car. We can only say more about the design after better shots.
2018 Chevrolet Equinox Interior
It is not wise to speculate how the interior of the equinox will be looking like. This is because there are very high chances it has not even been completed yet, given the fact that we are still several months from its release date. The styling of the cabin is simply not yet complete.
However, it is only common sense that this model will come with improved features so as to make a better driving experience. We have heard from the grapevine that it will have a 7.0-inch screen display. You should expect Wi-Fi hot spots.
The entertainment has also been taken care of. The vehicle will feature a radio with a good quality sound system. There is a package of quality air bags so as to enhance the level of safety in the vehicle.
2018 Chevrolet Equinox Engine Specifications
It has been rumored that this model will have the same engine features like the Buick version. Going by this, it will have a 2.5 L, 4-liter engine. As per the spy shots, the second engine will be turbocharged. The two engines will be paired with a 6-speed transmission.
Price and Date of Release
The model will be out by the second quarter of 2017. It will cost approximately $35,000.
