Chevy Prices the 2018 Equinox for Equal Opportunity by Michael Accardi December 7, 2016 Share Comments Chevy just announced a $24,475 base price for the significantly reworked 2018 Equinox. Oui, MSRP has increased by $1,300, but so has available and included content. In a battle for the driveways across middle America, the Equinox wades into the crossover way with three turbocharged engines–one of which is a diesel– two transmission choices, and two driveline options. A standard 1.5T will be the only motor available at launch, but both the 2.0T and diesel options will come online during the second quarter of 2017. Chevy will hook the 2.0T to its new 9T50 nine-speed automatic, transmission details for the base 1.5T and optional diesel have yet to be released. “In a word, crossover customers want one thing: everything. From comfort and connectivity to efficient performance and safety, the all-new 2018 Chevrolet Equinox delivers on all counts,” said Steve Majoros, director of marketing, Chevrolet Cars and Crossovers. The 2018 Equinox will be available in L, LS, LT and Premier trim levels, in FWD or AWD combinations. Moving inside, Chevy gave the Equinox a standard 7-inch MyLink infotainment touchscreen, with the option to jump up to a larger 8-inch unit. Both units support standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, along with GM’s 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot from OnStar. The technology doesn’t stop there, with Chevrolet packing the 2018 Equinox with active safety features like surround vision, forward collision, safety alert seat, low-speed automatic braking, lane keep, lane departure warning, lane change alert and cross traffic alerts. The Equinox is also offers a suite of technology to aid your poor parenting. Rear Seat Reminder will remind you to not forget your baby in the backseat, while Teen Driver will allow you to spy on your kid, further ruining your relationship with your adolescent child.
