The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is among many Chevy vehicles to have gotten a makeover this year!

“With three choices, customers can select an engine that offers more of the attributes that are important to them: efficiency, performance and capability,” said Dan Nicholson, vice president of Global Propulsion Systems in a press release. “The advantage for each is the power of a larger engine and the efficiency of a smaller engine.”

The 1.6L turbo engine is estimated by GM to offer 40 mpg highway!

The 2018 Equinox has plenty of available advanced safety features, including:2018-chevrolet-equinox-suv-reveal-safety-487x274-05
