Meet the diesel-powered 2018 Chevrolet Equinox

By Justin Cupler | August 30th, 2017


The new Chevrolet Equinox with turbocharged diesel engine drives a whopping 39 miles per gallon on the highway – making it the most fuel efficient crossover in its segment. Plus, this compact, two-row crossover is packed with thoughtful details to make your daily commute comfortable and hassle-free. Take a look at what’s new for this engine, interior, and safety tech on the 2018 Chevy Equinox.

For the diesel option, the Equinox is powered by a 1.6-liter turbo-diesel engine that earns a nice 137 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque. All that zippy action is paired with a six-speed automatic transmission that intelligently and smoothly shifts between gears and helps solidify the exceptional fuel efficiency. You’ll have the option between front-wheel-drive and all-wheel-drive too so you can customize your ride to suit your driving style.

Inside the cabin of this winsome vehicle is a quiet atmosphere with an upscale feel. The available leather seats and steering wheel are a must have for those who prefer a little extra heat in the winter. With the redesign for the 2018 Equinox model, you’ll fall in love with the unexpected chrome touches and available wood grain accents. Thanks to the quiet ride you’ll be able to hear every note out of your six-speaker audio system that seamlessly connects to your Apple or Android phone. The OnStar with 4G LTE and a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot will help you stay connected as well, so you never miss a beat when you’re on the road. The available keyless ignition, remote start, and rearview camera that doubles as a MyLink infotainment touch screen take this vehicle to the next level.

And you can drive with confidence knowing that Chevrolet added all-new active safety features to help you prevent accidents before they occur. Receive early alerts to unwanted situations with Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Forward Safety Awareness and Lake Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning. All of which provide visual/audible alerts to help you control the situation early.

Chevrolet is making sure diesel vehicles are here to stay and this is a great example of how outstanding they can be! Come take a test drive of any of our Chevrolet Equinox models today and discover your reason to love the 2018 refresh of this vehicle.
