Noteworthy Performance Features

1.5L turbocharged engine

As the standard powertrain on the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox, this 1.5L turbocharged machine achieves up to 32 mpg highway per General Motors estimates, yet maintains capable power.

Six-speed automatic transmission

The standard six-speed automatic transmission allows for smooth shifts and simple control of your every drive.

Up to 40 mpg highway

When you opt for the 1.6L turbo-diesel engine, the fuel returns you’ll experience are beyond belief for a crossover SUV – up to 40 mpg on the highway, according to General Motors estimates.


When inclement weather hits, feel at ease knowing you have StabiliTrak on your side. This feature allows you to stay in control in low-traction situations, such as on wet pavement.


Performance That Goes Above and Beyond

There’s even more in store when it comes to the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox’s performance capabilities. There’s another powertrain setup in the form of a 2.0L turbocharged engine mated to an all-new nine-speed automatic transmission, which is good for 252 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque. When properly equipped, an Equinox with this system allows for 3,500 pounds in towing. All you have to do is press the Tow/Haul mode button so that your transmission works to haul heavy loads. Plus, a switchable all-wheel drive system allows you to go between front-wheel and all-wheel drive depending on the conditions with which you’re faced.
