Performance

The Equinox’s base engine provides satisfying power that delivers a good fuel economy and strong acceleration. The standard 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine generates 170 horsepower and comes paired with a six-speed automatic transmission. The transmission is a lot smoother than you might think which is a great surprise. Other optional powertrain options like a 137-horsepower turbodiesel engine and a 252-horsepower turbocharged engine have their advantages. The acceleration is better on the 252-horsepower engine, but rather lacking when it comes to fuel economy. The turbodiesel engine, however, offers a terrific 28 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway versus the base engine’s 24/30mpg city/highway rating. Handling is incredibly stable and steering is remarkably precise.

Features

The 2018 Chevy Equinox comes loaded with a ton of cool base features but also offers a variety of optional features drivers will want. Cloth seating comes standard, but some drivers will elect to equip their Equinox with heated and ventilated leather seats. A six-speaker audio system comes standard along with a 7-inch touchscreen infotainment system. This infotainment system includes smartphone integration, voice commands, and a teen driver monitoring system. Optional features include dual-zone climate control, a panoramic sunroof, and an updated 8-inch touchscreen. On top of this, you can add driver assistance safety features like rear cross traffic alert, blind spot monitoring, lane keeping assist, and automatic emergency braking.
