2018 Chevrolet EquinoxFor crossover drivers in West Des Moines and Indianola looking for an affordably priced and well-rounded model, the Chevy Equinox has long been a competitive option. With the introduction of the fully redesigned 2018 Chevrolet Equinox on the horizon, though, this particular crossover SUV is stepping up to a whole new level of sophistication, performance, and desirability. Here’s a sneak peek before it arrives at Gregg Young Chevrolet Norwalk.

Turbocharged Performance

The all-new Equinox will be available with your choice of three different turbocharged engines—a 1.5L turbo, a 2.0L turbo, and a 1.6L turbo-diesel. Chevrolet is also offering the Equinox with its sophisticated new nine-speed automatic transmission. Look for significantly improved fuel economy thanks to the engineering of these turbocharged powertrains, a 10 percent weight reduction, and a unique all-wheel drive system that automatically disengages the rear axle when it’s not required by road conditions.

All-New Design

In addition to its significant drop in weight, the 2018 Chevy Equinox gets a unique new exterior look that’s sure to stand out. A new muscular exterior and aerodynamic design has been provided to offer a sleeker look and better wind tunnel flow, while LED daytime running lights, projector-beam headlamps, and horizontal tail lamps are all standard. Upper trims will come with LED taillights as well.

Advanced Features

In addition to the latest version of the Chevy MyLink infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the all-new Equinox will be offered with advanced safety features like the Safety Alert Seat, Forward Collision Alert, Low-Speed Automatic Braking, Lane Keep Assist, Rear Seat Reminder, Lane Change Alert, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, and a 360-degree camera.
