Overview

What's New in the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox?

Which Equinox is the Best?

Choosing an Equinox engine option really depends on how you'll use it. For urban driving and highway cruising, the 1.5L turbo will do quite nicely. Ditto for the 1.6L turbo diesel that goes to the front of the class for open-road fuel economy. If having some fun trumps mileage concerns, the 2.0-liter will take care of that.

With the engine choice made, we'd go with the LT trim and add the Confidence and Convenience Package with all its driver-assist/safety technology.

How Much Does a 2018 Chevrolet Equinox Cost?

The Equinox's eight trim levels are based on the engines. The 1.5L has four grades, while the 2L and 1.6L turbo-diesel have two grades each.

L 1.5L Turbo ($24,525) is the most affordable model, offering a 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine, six airbags, air conditioning, Bluetooth connectivity, Teen Driver Mode, cruise control, full power accessories, remote keyless locks, active noise cancellation, rearview camera, tilt-telescopic steering wheel with redundant audio controls, auto on/off headlights, heated folding outboard mirrors, 17-inch aluminum wheels, OnStar 4G LTE with Wi-Fi hotspot, and MyLink 6-speaker audio system with 7-in touchscreen, USB port, Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Chevy offers no factory options.

LS 1.5L Turbo ($26,455) increases the standard equipment on the L with rear carpet floor mats, a compact spare tire, jack and compass. Available options include keyless entry keypad, as well as a couple of weather-protection packages.

LT 1.5L Turbo ($27,695) adds to the LS gear with high-intensity discharge headlights, satellite radio capability, 8-way power adjustable driver's seat, second-row manual seat release levers in the cargo area, a leather-wrapped shift knob and deep-tinted rear glass. Options include Confidence and Convenience Package with remote start, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated outboard mirrors with integrated turn signals, blind spot monitoring, lane-change alert, rear cross-traffic alert, heated front seats and the Sun & Infotainment Package with a panoramic power sunroof, upgraded MyLink audio system with 8-in touchscreen, a 120V power outlet and dual USB data ports.

Premier 1.5L Turbo ($31,735) includes all the features and goodies in the option packages in the LT 1.5 and adds heated leather seats with memory, hands-free power liftgate, power-folding outboard mirrors, auto-dimming rearview mirror, remote start, LED headlights and taillights and roof-mounted luggage rack. A Driver Confidence and Convenience Package II offers a safety alert driver's seat, forward-collision warning, low-speed automatic braking, IntelliBeam headlights, birds-eye surround-vision cameras, 8-way power-adjustable front passenger seat, heated rear outboard seats and a ventilated driver's seat. An available Sun, Sound and Navigation Package includes a panoramic sunroof, MyLink with navigation, upgraded 7-speaker Bose audio system and 19-in aluminum wheels.

LT 2.0L Turbo ($30,090) builds on the LT 1.5 Turbo content with the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine, 9-speed automatic transmission, 18-in bright aluminum wheels, chrome dual outlet exhaust and heated folding outboard mirrors. It offers the same option packages as the LT 1.5 Turbo.

Premier 2.0L Turbo ($34,530) is essentially the same standard content and option packages as the Premier 1.5L Turbo, but with the 2.0-liter turbocharged engine.

LT 1.6L Turbo Diesel ($31,435) basically has the same standard content and option packages as the LT 1.5L Turbo, but with the 1.6-liter turbo diesel. Plus, the Sun & Infotainment Package also includes the power liftgate.

Premier 1.6L Turbo Diesel ($33,930) reflects the standard equipment and option packages as the Premier 1.5L Turbo, but with the turbo diesel.

Safety

Is the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox a Safe Car?

Neither the government nor the IIHS has crash tested the 2018 Equinox. Every Equinox comes with six airbags, a rear-vision camera, Teen Driver and an OnStar telematics system with a 3-month free trial. A long list of available safety technologies include birds-eye surround-vision camera system, forward-collision warning with following-distance indicator, low-speed automatic braking, IntelliBeam headlights, lane-departure warning with lane-keep assist, blind spot monitoring and rear cross-traffic assist. With the safety alert seat, warnings are transmitted to the driver's seat cushion in the form of vibrations.

Competition

2018 Chevrolet Equinox vs the competition

Honda CR-V -- We can't have a conversation about small crossovers and not include the segment sales-leading CR-V. Honda gave it a ground-up redesign for 2017, keeping it in the crosshairs of every competitor out there.

Nissan Rogue -- A sales winner for Nissan, the Rogue actually outsold every SUV and crossover for a couple of months earlier in the year. Its attractive price and passenger-friendly performance contribute to its popularity.

Jeep Renegade -- Jeep hit the sweet spot with Renegade. Not only is it comfortable, but it delivers on Jeep's promise for rugged off-road worthiness. It's a pint-size, less complex, more affordable Grand Cherokee.

Kia Sportage -- Although it offers less cargo room than many of its competitors, the Sportage earns a spot on this list because of its value pricing. Loads of passenger space, comfy ride and tons of content puts the Sportage solidly in the hunt.
