Advantages of 2018 Chevrolet Equinox
The 2018 Equinox has improved performance as well. In addition to its lightweight body, this can be credited to its available turbo engine options. The 1.5L turbo engine offers a great balance of fuel efficiency and performance, delivering a highway fuel economy of 32 mpg. In comparison the 2017 Edge only manages 29 hwy mpg. For ever greater performance, you can opt for the 2.0L turbo engine, which generates an impressive output of 252 horsepower and achieves the 0-60 sprint in just 7.2 seconds. The 2018 Equinox also has a stiffer body structure, which results in improved ride comfort and handling.
Another advantage of the 2018 Equinox is its advanced safety technology. The strategic placement of high-strength and ultra-high strength steel in the body structure is the foundation of a robust “safety cage” surrounding passengers. Also, the 2018 Equinox offers ten advanced safety technologies to help detect and prevent potential hazards on the road. This includes Low Speed Automatic Braking, Lane Keep Assistant with Lane Departure Warning, Forward Collision Alert, Rear Vision Camera, Rear Cross Traffic Alert, Rear Park Assist, Side Blind Zone Alert, Lane Change Alert, Safety Alert Seat and Chevy's Intellibeam headlights.
