The Chevy Equinox was well in need of a full redesign, and it will get that for the 2018 model year. While most of the details surrounding the redesigned crossover are available, we were still waiting on one very important detail: pricing.
Today, Chevy lifted the veil from that bit of info, revealing the new Equinox will start from $24,475. This makes the new crossover $1,375 more than the last-gen model (2017), which isn’t bad considering the improvements it’s undergone.
At this base price, the 2018 Equinox will include the new 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine that produces 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque. Thanks to its added torque and its 437-pound weight advantage over last year’s model, the crossover should feel quicker
What’s more, while official details aren’t available on the 2018 model’s fuel economy, it should easily beat the 2017 Equinox’s base rating of 21 mpg city, 31 mpg highway and 25 mpg combined.
In addition to the 1.5-liter engine, the Equinox will also feature a 2.0-liter turbo engine and a 1.6-liter turbo-diesel engine. The starting price with these engines remains unknown for now.
The 2018 Equinox will hit showrooms in the spring of 2017. We should get more pricing details as we get closer to its official launch date. Stay tuned!
