There are a number of admirable things about the new 2018 Chevrolet Equinox. For instance, its smaller, maneuverable size and roomy cabin provide the best of both worlds. It also features a generous list of standard features, like the Chevy MyLink infotainment system and 7-inch touch screen. But, one of the most remarkable things about the new 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is its engine lineup, which includes something unusual—a diesel option.
Here are what 2018 Chevrolet Equinox diesel details we know thus far.
The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox with the diesel engine has not yet been tested by the EPA. However, Chevrolet is estimating that this little crossover could get up to 39 mpg highway when it’s equipped with the turbo-diesel engine. That would put the Chevrolet Equinox at the head of its segment in fuel efficiency, which is exciting news.
Not only do we expect the turbo-diesel powered Chevy Equinox to be efficient, but we also think it will deliver a fun ride. The diesel engine boasts 240 lb-ft of torque, so acceleration should be consistently responsive.
The all-new 2018 Chevrolet Equinox will be available with its all-new turbo-diesel engine at Stalker Chevrolet later this year. We hope you’ll join us for a test drive of perhaps the most exciting new vehicle in the crossover/SUV segment.
For the 2018 model year, the popular Chevrolet Equinox is getting some significant updates. The 2018 Equinox updates include styling, new engines, and more technology. It also loses some weight to the tune of 400 pounds, when compared to the outgoing model. This weight loss will help the Equinox be more efficient and buyers will appreciate that when they are at the pump.
From first glance, you can tell that the 2018 Equinox is something worth driving. Its sculpted design and signature lighting give it an upscale look and feel. And, with a wide range of colors to choose from, you can find the perfect Equinox to fit your personality. This sophisticated look and feel continues inside with lots of passenger space and available premium features.
Under the hood, buyers can choose from three engines. A turbocharged 1.5-liter engine comes standard, and delivers the ideal balance of efficiency and power. If you want more power, choose the 2.0-liter turbo that offers 252 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. Finally, if efficiency is what you crave, the Equinox offers a 1.6-liter Turbo-Diesel that is expected to deliver a GM-estimated 40 mpg on the highway.*

At the North American International Auto Show, held in Detroit early this year, Chevrolet unveiled its redesigned Traverse that will be part of the 2018 model year. It will come with a bold new look in addition to best-in-class cargo space and third-row legroom, two big factors for a family-friendly crossover.
“The all-new Traverse offers the ultimate in style and convenience for the segment, with the versatility customers need and a thoughtful, spacious design they’ll love,” said Alan Batey, president of GM North America and brand chief, Global Chevrolet. “It’s the midsize SUV designed to help keep you safe, comfortable and connected.”
When it goes on sale later this year, it will be Chevrolet’s fourth updated crossover or SUV within a year, joining the Trax, Bolt EV, and 2018 Equinox.
The 2018 Traverse will add two new trim levels, a sporty RS and premium High Country. These packages will give buyers even more options for a more personalized driving experience. With the RS, buyers will get blacked-out exterior design elements, including a black chrome grille, 20-inch wheels, a black bowtie, and more. The High Country trim delivers premium options like Loft Brown leather details with suede accents, 20-inch polished wheels, power-folding third row seats, and other quality amenities.
