New 2018 Chevy Equinox Making LA Show Debut

Unveiled back in September, the 2018 #Chevrolet Equinox is bringing a new look and advanced on-board tech to this year's Los Angeles Auto Show before going on sale in Q1 of 2017.

Among its key features are the sharp and expressive design, the on-board connectivity and the trio of propulsion choices which includes the segment's only turbo-diesel unit, rated at 136 HP and 236 lb-ft (320 Nm) of torque.

"The all-new 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is a modern SUV sized and designed to meet the needs of the compact SUV customer," said Alan Batey, president of GM North America. "We've got the strongest truck business in the industry and we’ve reinvigorated our car lineup with Volt, Cruze and Malibu. Now we are focusing on growing our crossover/SUV business, starting with the Chevrolet Equinox."

Visually, the 2018 Equinox comes with standard projector-beam headlamps, LED daytime running lamps and a horizontal taillight design. Inside, there are new fabrics, a new flat-folding rear seat and the latest connectivity technologies offered by Chevrolet - including 7 & 8" MyLink infotainment systems that support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and also feature OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.

In terms of safety, there are several new systems to take into account, such as the Safety Alert Seat, Surround Vision, Forward Collision Alert with Following Distance Indicator, Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning and the Rear Seat Reminder.

Powering the 2018 Equinox is a range of three turbocharged engines, two petrol (1.5 & 2.0 liter) and a 1.6-liter diesel. At the moment, the new Equinox is the only model in North America with an all-turbocharged, multi-engine range.
