ALL-NEW 2018 CHEVROLET EQUINOX MAKES AUTO SHOW DEBUT  • Fresh design, latest connectivity and all-turbo engines for redesigned compact SUV

LOS ANGELES — The redesigned 2018 Chevrolet Equinox will make its public auto show debut Nov. 18-27 at the Los Angeles Auto Show.

Offering an expressive design, the latest connectivity, more safety features and a trio of propulsion choices — including the segment's only turbo-diesel — the all-new Equinox is a fresh and modern compact SUV.

'The all-new 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is a modern SUV sized and designed to meet the needs of the compact SUV customer,' said Alan Batey, president of GM North America and brand chief, Global Chevrolet. 'We've got the strongest truck business in the industry and we've reinvigorated our car lineup with Volt, Cruze and Malibu. Now we are focusing on growing our crossover/SUV business, starting with the Chevrolet Equinox.'

ALL-NEW 2018 CHEVROLET EQUINOX MAKES AUTO SHOW DEBUT  The 2018 Equinox goes on sale in the first quarter of 2017 in North America.

Modern design, latest connectivity

The new Equinox's expressive exterior has a lean, muscular skin echoing the global Chevrolet design cues and the sculpted shapes seen in the Volt, Malibu and Cruze.

Projector-beam headlamps are standard, along with LED daytime running lamps, while horizontal taillamps emphasize a wide stance. Uplevel models feature LED taillamps.

Inside, new elements such as available denim-style seat fabric blend high style with high durability, while a new flat-folding rear seat enhances functionality and enables easier loading.

    Turbocharged engines and more

    A range of three turbocharged engines, including the segment's first turbo-diesel in North America, provides customers more choices when it comes to performance, efficiency and capability in the all-new 2018 Chevrolet Equinox.

    They include a 1.5L turbo, a 2.0L turbo that is matched with GM's new nine-speed automatic transmission and a 1.6L turbo-diesel. The lineup makes the new Equinox Chevrolet's first model in North America with an all-turbocharged, multi-engine propulsion lineup.

    Additional vehicle highlights:

    ◾It's approximately 400 pounds (180 kg) lighter than the current model, for a 10 percent weight reduction that contributes to vehicle balance and efficiency.

    ◾The switchable AWD system enhances efficiency by disconnecting from the rear axle when not needed.

    ◾A unique kneeling rear seat enables a flat rear load floor and up to 63.5 cubic feet (1,798 liters) of maximum cargo space.
