2018 Chevy Equinox Portage La Prairie MB
When the revised Chevy Equinox came out for the 2016 model year we were impressed by the strong lines and elegant styling of the crossover SUV. Now we have been wowed once again by the 2018 Chevy Equinox in Portage La Prairie MB. With an even more confident exterior look with muscular styling, a lighter and stronger structure, even better engine options, and premium available safety features, the 2018 Chevy Equinox promises to deliver premium satisfaction, features, and drivability for SUV shoppers in Manitoba and around the world.
The 2018 Chevy Equinox will offer a choice of three premium turbocharged engine options, including the segment's first turbo-diesel. The base 1.5-litre turbocharged four-cylinder delivers a GM-estimated 170 horsepower and an estimated fuel consumption as low as 7.6 L/100km on the highway. The advanced 2.0-litre turbo ups that performance to 252 horsepower. This engine is mated to GM's all-new nine-speed automatic transmission, and should be able to trailer up to 1,585 kilograms while delivering a GM-estimated fuel consumption rating of 6.4 L/100km.
The new turbo-diesel available on the 2018 Chevy Equinox will be the only diesel engine available on a compact SUV in North America. With an estimated output of 136 horsepower and 236 pound-feet of torque, this engine should deliver confident power with impressive fuel efficiency (up to a GM-estimated 5.9 L/100km on the highway).
New for 2018, the Surround Vision safety system allows drivers of the 2018 Chevy Equinox to receive a 360-degree bird's eye view thanks to multiple cameras positioned around the Equinox SUV. This can allow drivers to get a better idea of the obstacles that may surround their vehicle while passing, parking, or backing up.
Wi-Fi and Connectivity
The MyLink infotainment system will return for 2018, with seven- and eight-inch touchscreen options, and an available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot from OnStar that can connect up to seven devices to the internet. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity will also be available for drivers with compatible smartphones and data plans.
