2018 Chevrolet Equinox Starts at $24,475
Higher Starting Price Brings More Equipment
Although it may not have the legendary decades-long popularity of the Suburban or Tahoe, the Equinox is Chevrolet’s and, by extension, General Motors’ best-selling SUV nameplate. The C-segment crossover is all-new for the 2018 model year, including an all-new lineup of turbocharged engines, including, for the first time, an optional turbodiesel I-4. Chevrolet has now announced the starting price of the new Equinox, starting at $24,475 including destination for a front-wheel-drive L model equipped with the base 1.5L turbocharged I-4 engine making 170 hp and 200 lb-ft of torque. Pricing for the up-level L, LS, LT and Premier trims was not announced, nor was the option price for the 252-hp 2.0L gas turbo I-4 or 137hp, 236 lb-ft 1.6L turbodiesel I-4, or for the all-wheel-drive option.
The 2018 Equinox features a standard 7-inch MyLink touchscreen display, with an optional 8-inch display. Optional safety features include Teen Driver, Rear Seat Reminder, lane keep assist with departure warning, low speed forward automatic braking, and Safety Alert Seat.
The 2018 Equinox will go on sale in the first quarter of 2017, launching with the 1.5L gas turbo engine. The 2.0L turbo and 1.6L diesel models will go on sale in the second half of 2017. Full pricing for the entire Equinox lineup will be released closer to its sale date.
