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.

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.*

Chevrolet Receives Four IIHS 2015 Top Safety Pick Ratings

At Chevrolet, your safety is our number one priority. That is why it comes as no surprise that four different Chevrolet models have received the 2015 Top Safety Pick rating from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS). The 2015 Spark, Volt, Malibu, and Equinox each proved that not only are they aesthetically pleasing and capable, but they are also some of the safest cars in the industry.

“Receiving this recognition from IIHS for the 2015 Spark, Volt, Malibu, and Equinox is great news for Chevrolet and even greater news for our customers,” said Steven Majoros, director Chevrolet Cars and Crossover Marketing.

 

To earn the 2015 Top Safety Pick rating, each of the four vehicles had to receive a ‘good’ or ‘acceptable’ rating in the challenging small overlap front test, which is the most difficult crash test out there. Each vehicle also had to receive a good rating in the IIHS’ four other tests.
