2018 Chevrolet Equinox
At Baierl Automotive, we know just how helpful a smart crossover can be when cruising around those Pittsburgh, Wexford, and Butler streets. The Equinox in particular seems to have everything you might need to get around.
We don’t just want you to take our word for it, of course. That’s why we’ve put together this 2018 Chevrolet Equinox review, to show you exactly what it’s capable of.
2018 Chevrolet Equinox Interior Comfort
Whether you need a 5-passenger crossover for your family or just for your next adventure, the Chevy Equinox is well-equipped to handle both.
In the cabin, passengers will have as much as 103.2 cubic feet of space to stretch out in. With everyone packed in, there’s 29.9 cubic feet behind the second row for cargo. However, you could also fold over the second row for a total of 63.5 cubic feet for your gear.
Space isn’t the only comfort that the Equinox has to offer. You can also make use of features like keyless open and the available 8-way power adjustable driver’s seat.
Lastly, as you settle in, you’ll notice ample amounts of technology at your fingertips, most of which sits in the Chevrolet MyLink® entertainment suite. This package features a 7-inch color touchscreen, Bluetooth®, and mobile integration with Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™.
Turbocharged Chevrolet Performance
Like in any Chevy vehicle, you’ll find plenty of optimizations under the hood of your Equinox. For example, the 1.5L 4-cylinder engine has been enhanced with both turbocharging and variable valve timing.
The combination of these features both maximizes engine output and moderates fuel consumption. So, you’ll be able to produce 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque, all while maintaining an EPA-estimated 32 highway MPG.
That sort of power and economy will really come in handy on your next road trip, where you can tow up to 1,500 pounds of cargo behind you.
To help improve handling while hauling a heavy load, the Equinox features StabiliTrak® electronic stability control. This should sharpen up that steering, even when your trailer is full.
Smart Safety Features for the 2018 Equinox
Speaking of those long road trips, you’ll need plenty of safety features on your side to tackle them with total confidence. Fortunately, the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox prioritizes passenger protection.
A number of intuitive smart features are available in the Equinox. They include:
- Forward Collision Alert
- Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking
- Rear Cross Traffic Alert
What’s helpful about these features is that they can actually help prevent collisions, in some cases. They monitor the road using cameras and sensors, and will send you warnings when things get hazardous.
