Getting an all-new makeover in 2017, the 2018 Chevy Equinox is finally ready to show the world that it’s the ultimate car that everyone desires. This is the compact SUV that is not just for the working mother. It is well suited for a variety of personalities, from the stylish teen to the wandering bachelor.
The 2018 Chevy Equinox may be considered thirty percent entertaining, and seventy percent enlightened. It’s got the brains but it without any doubt it knows how to show off its fun and luxurious side. But, talk is cheap, and this ride is anything but, so let’s get into the specifics.
An Enlightened Design
Enlightened individuals have helped to shape the world for all existence. The Equinox just as enlightened as those people. It is sculptured to your needs and is smart enough to fit each and every goal you have.
Don’t do things the hard way when you can do them the smart way. Convenience is all about looking at a person’s needs, activities, and plans and getting them done in the simplest way possible. The 2018 Chevy Equinox makes that happen.
This model of Equinox gets the hard work done for you. With a simple move of your foot, you can have that pesky truck open in no time. The amount of storage available is quite impressive even for an SUV. In addition, the trunk door has programmable memory height so you can set it to stop low, or high for ease of reach when closing and it won’t hit any low ceilings.
There is also some awesome cargo space. 63.5 cu. ft of it to be exact, including the folding seats. Whether you are planning a DIY project, or a trip to the shore this SUV will let you fit it all comfortably.
It seems like everyone has a smartphone these days, and so it’s almost essential to have a smart car to fit them. The 2018 Chevy Equinox links to both Apple and Android products with wireless Bluetooth and optional 4g Wi-Fi in the car. Play music from your own playlist so that you can rock out in your own style. Also be safe by using the hands-free option to send texts and make important calls.
Not only is the system smart, but so are the seats. They will alert you when the back doors are opened or closed with a selection of chimes. You always know what’s going on behind you.
The 2018 Chevy Equinox has a few engine options. Here is a look at the best of the best.
1.6L Turbo-Diesel Engine. It offers an amazing 39 MPG on the highway, plus it’s nice and quiet.
1.5L Turbo Engine. It may not be 39 but an impressive fuel efficient 32 MPG on the highway. Powerful and efficient!
2.0L Turbo Engine. This is for towing ability. 9-speeds with automatic transmission and a mind-bowling 252 horsepower with 260 lb.-ft. of torque. Up to 3500 pounds, that’s a lot of towability.
Those up north know what a pain the snow can be on traction and control. To eliminate this annoyance, the Equinox has switchable AWD that lets you change between FWD and AWD while you’re on the go.
The 2018 Chevy Equinox sees all with its surround vision system. The 8-inch display shows you forward, rear, sides and even a virtual overhead view of your vehicle, this SUV has eyes everywhere.
What do these cameras alert you to exactly? Well, the answer is simply everything. Parking, traffic, lane changes, and even blinds spots will all be a breeze. Even the seats will alert you with vibrations instead of audible safety alerts if you want.
Finally, the Equinox has INTELLIBEAM® headlamps. It automatically switches on your high beams for dark conditions and lowers them when cars get close. In addition, this model also includes the teen driver system with report cards and extra alerts to help with teaching young bucks to manage the road.
Entertainment is the epicenter of the United States. That means even our cars need to include the exciting fun with every feature.
With an impressive variety of colors, you can be as eye-catching as you desire. The newly redesigned Equinox offers signature LED day lamps and a beautifully sculpted exterior that fits into any situation from work to travel.
Let’s face it; cars are not just for practicality anymore. We desire a little fun with our mode of transportation for those long commutes and road trips. This is why the SUV has some great features to keep the fun going.
The best feature is the ability to tow. At the press of a button, your transmission will automatically help haul small boats and campers with ease.
It’s time to discuss the interior. It’s new, it’s spacious, and it’s comfortable for everyone who comes on board for the ride as well as everything they bring. It also has everything right at your fingertips, so driving is easy as pie.
Although it’s sad to name any faults with the Equinox, It ’s important to practice our candor. The facts clearly show that this car is not a fast starter. In fairness, that was never this models intention. It also will never be the cheapest option on the market starting at $23,580, but its features could most certainly be worth it depending on your needs.
Enlightened as they come, and entertaining as well, the 2018 Chevy Equinox is perfect for any SUV drive. Even if you don’t traditionally go for SUVs, you may want to think about converting for this model. If you need a vehicle that does pretty much anything, it’s really the perfect choice. A little costly, but every penny would be happy to give themselves to this cause. All generations and all types of people come together and enjoy the Equinox.
