Right-sized, tech-savvy and all-new for 2018.

Totally redesigned for 2018, the Chevrolet Equinox is now smaller on the outside, roomier on the inside and far more competitive with segment stalwarts like the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4. The bread-and-butter 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine does the job, but the Equinox is also available with a plenty-powerful 2.0-liter turbocharged engine and a turbodiesel unit rated to return 39 mpg on the highway. Comfortable, stylish, roomy and tech-laden, the new Chevy Equinox has earned a spot at the head table.

Driving It

In our full review of the 2018 Equinox, we evaluated the base 1.5-liter turbo engine: "It's a more than satisfactory powerplant for the Equinox. With a 6-speed automatic driving either the front wheels or all four wheels, the little turbo handily gets the Equinox going, even on the hilly roads around the border between the Carolinas. At stops, Chevrolet has practically perfected its idle-stop feature to the point that we don't mind there's no 'off' switch."
