Loading Comparison...


Completely redesigned, the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox compact crossover SUV has shrunk and lost weight when compared with the first-generation Equinox. Despite losing 5.2 inches in wheelbase and 4.7 inches in overall length, interior space is only slightly smaller. The 2018 Equinox weighs about 400 pounds less than its predecessor.

While the previous-generation model was aging and outmoded, the 2018 Equinox is updated in just about every way. In addition to bolder styling, the latest version is better-equipped. Equinox has turned into a more solid, stylish, and capable vehicle. Stylish denim-like seat upholstery is an option.

Four trim levels are offered for 2018: Equinox L, LS, LT, and Premier. Chevrolet first offered only the 1.5-liter four-cylinder base engine. A 2.0-liter gasoline engine then became optional, to be joined by a 1.6-liter diesel. All three engines are turbocharged.

The 1.5-liter engine develops 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque, versus 182 hp and 174 pound-feet for the 2.4-liter unit that it replaces. Peak torque starts at 2000 rpm. A 6-speed automatic transmission is used.

Available for Equinox LT and Equinox Premier, the 2.0-liter four-cylinder produces 252 horsepower and 260 pound-feet, driving GM’s 9-speed automatic transmission. The 1.6-liter turbodiesel delivers 137 horsepower and 240 pound-feet to a 6-speed automatic, promising fuel economy near 40 mpg in combined city/highway driving.

In its new form, Chevrolet Equinox competes against such compact crossovers as the Ford Escape, Honda CR-V, and Toyota RAV4.

Active-safety features and comfort options are available, but mostly limited to top trim levels. All Equinox models include a rearview camera. HID headlights are standard on LT trim, while the Premier edition gets Intellibeam bending headlights. Standard Teen Driver technology can report on behavior of a young driver, while preventing deactivation of safety features.

An optional package for LT trim includes rear parking sensors, plus blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. Picking a Premier edition with the Confidence and Convenience II Package is the only way to obtain forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking.


Equinox L ($23,580), offered only with front-wheel drive, comes with a rearview camera, remote keyless entry, pushbutton start, MyLink 7.0-inch infotainment screen, Bluetooth, Apple CarPlay/Android Auto connectivity, 4G LTE wi-fi, active noise cancellation, and 17-inch alloy wheels. (Prices are MSRP and do not include $945 destination charge.)

Equinox LS ($25,510) adds a compact spare tire, carpeted rear mats, and a compass. All-wheel drive is available ($1,750).

Equinox LT ($26,750) includes a power driver’s seat with lumbar adjustment, heated power mirrors, HID headlights, and second-row seat release levers. All-wheel drive is available ($1,750). A Confidence and Convenience Package for LT ($1,945) includes blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, rear park assist, and a power liftgate.

Equinox Premier ($30,790) comes with heated leather front seats, driver’s memory, 18-inch wheels, dual-zone climate control, an 8.0-inch touchscreen, auto-dimming mirrors, luggage rack, LED headlights and taillights, blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, and a hands-free power liftgate. All-wheel drive ($3,645) is available.


Slimmed down in its 2018 form, the Equinox has adopted a more assertive aura. Up front, however, the fascia is likely to draw both favorable and negative responses. The minivan-like back end might not please everyone, either.

A chromed lower surround splits the integrated, one-piece grille. A subtle line extends rearward from the arch of the front wheel well, dividing within the front door. One branch melds into the rear wheel’s arch, while the other reaches back to the taillights. Rear pillars angle forward aggressively, while rear side windows wrap into the back glass.


The Equinox cabin comes across as clean-looking and attractive, but it lags behind major competitors in both style and quality of materials. Front seats are better than before, though snug.

Back-seat riders can expect spacious comfort, with ample room for heads and legs. Two adult occupants shouldn’t feel crowded, and three can fit – preferably for shorter journeys. Entry/exit isn’t difficult, because rear doors open sufficiently wide.

Both hard and soft-touch plastics abound, except in top Premium trim. That version expands its standard leather upholstery onto inserts within the dashboard and doors.

Available denim-style fabric upholstery delivers surprising comfort, if snugger than seats trimmed in leather. In size and heft, the leather-wrapped steering wheel is especially satisfying.

Despite the tall, expansive opening for loading cargo, available space is smaller than the previous Equinox provided. With seatbacks upright, volume is 29.9 cubic feet, versus 63.5 cubic feet when they’re folded flat.

Driving Impressions

Performance of the 1.5-liter base engine is solid and efficient, helped by turbocharging. Clearly, it’s more impressive than the 2.4-liter engine in the previous Equinox. The 1.5-liter is quieter, too, emitting a refined exhaust sound and a touch of turbo whistling when pushed. Because peak engine torque is readily available, a base-engine Equinox can take on upgrades with little hesitation.

Chevrolet’s 6-speed automatic transmission is less appealing, especially when shifting manually. Even if the additional power from the optional 2.0-liter engine isn’t essential, it gets a slicker 9-speed automatic rather than the older 6-speed. Upshifts occur smoothly, while little gear-hunting occurs during downshifting.

Passengers can anticipate a quiet, comfortable ride, remaining composed even on undulating pavement.

Feedback from pavement surfaces is minimal, but that’s hardly uncommon among crossovers. Body motions are more noticeable than a Mazda CX-5 would transmit, but handling capability of the Equinox ranks as adequate. Standard 17-inch tires may yield an uneasy driving experience at times.

Pavement rumble and roar are mostly muted, regardless of tire choice. Wind noise, in contrast, can be a problem. Though pleasing to some ears, the sound of the 1.5-liter engine might be considered intrusive by others.

Base-engine fuel economy isn’t class-leading, but tolerable. The 1.5-liter version is EPA-rated at 26/32 mpg City/Highway, or 28 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive drops the estimate to 24/30/26 mpg.

Fuel-efficiency sinks with the optional 2.0-liter engine, which is EPA-rated at 22/29 mpg City/Highway, or 25 mpg Combined. All-wheel drive drops that estimate to 22/28/24 mpg. Chevrolet claims the front-drive Equinox Diesel should achieve 40 mpg in highway driving.


In addition to welcome reductions in dimensions and weight, without sacrificing cabin space, the 2018 Equinox has gained standard equipment. Altogether, it’s now a more satisfying and capable crossover. As is often the case, active-safety features are limited to top trim levels. Best bet might be an Equinox LT with the Confidence and Convenience Package.

About These Prices

As you know, pricing cars is particularly complicated. One of our duties at CarQuotes.com is to help our customers comprehend this process better.

Three important prices we may show on a particular vehicle

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Price is for research purposes only. It reflects a typical, negotiated price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, license and registration, and where applicable, finance charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. The Estimated Target Price is NOT a price quote from CarQuotes.com or any other dealer. If you request a price quote from a dealer via CarQuotes.com displaying an estimated target price, your price may differ.

Invoice is commonly known as the published amount that the dealer paid the manufacturer for the vehicle. This may or may not represent a close relation to the dealer’s actual cost, but can be beneficial as a benchmark. This figure is available on many other web sites however CarQuotes.com adds an estimate of local and regional fees from manufacturer to the dealers to this price, which makes it very close to the actual invoice amount for cars at your local dealer.

MSRP is the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price. This is a proposed price only. For most vehicles, the CarQuotes.com price is below this amount. Some high demand cars may be priced over this amount.

Estimated Target Price

The CarQuotes.com Target Price is to be used as a general guide that reflects a typical, market price (before taxes and other customary fees and charges) generally found for the vehicle that you selected. This price is based on our research and estimates of supply and demand in the marketplace. There are many factors that go into the final price of a particular vehicle including local supply and demand. Your final price may differ.

CarQuotes.com Estimated Target Prices include

The ’base’ price of the vehicle
All options that you select
Base Destination Charges — this is a charge that is added to the base price for every vehicle
Any related Estimated Manufacture to Consumer Cash Rebates. Note: rebates are subject to change at any time. Please make sure to confirm any consumer Cash rebates with your dealer representative at the time of purchase.

CarQuotes.com Estimated price(s) do NOT include any of the following:

Local taxes, license fees and other local fees, such as dealer documentation fees, tire and battery disposal fees, and where applicable, finance charges — these fees are also excluded from Dealer Invoice and MSRP and would be excluded from most advertisements you might see.

The Estimated CarQuotes Dealer Price is an estimate of the pricing presented to CarQuotes members from CarQuotes Authorized Dealers in your area, and is calculated by subtracting an estimated savings value from the Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price ("MSRP") as well as a value that relates to invoice for the "ideal vehicle" you configured. Dealer documentation, administrative or similar processing fees are not included in the price estimate. Any vehicle configured on the CarQuotes website is an "ideal vehicle" and may not exist at a CarQuotes Authorized Dealer or any other partner dealer. Each Dealer attempts to match a member’s vehicle preferences with the best possible selection from current, in-stock inventory.

Estimated Savings

The Estimated Savings represents the estimated amount of savings off of MSRP available to you from CarQuotes Dealers for a vehicle consistent with your configured preferences plus any customer incentives currently available.  This is also true when it comes to CarQuotes estimated target prices. Your actual savings will depend on several factors including market conditions, the style of vehicle you select, installed options, dealer coverage, and applicable manufacturer incentives. Each dealer sets its own pricing.

Advertised Rebates, Special Manufacturer Financing or Leasing Programs

In most cases, you must choose between these programs OR a customer rebate or a special manufacturer-to-dealer incentive that may or may not already be included in your CarQuotes.com Target Price. So, your final price may go up if you take advantage of special manufacturer financing. Credit Union members should contact their Credit Union loan department to determine what type of loan and financing options are right for you.

Please note that CarQuotes.com strives to include identified manufacturer incentives within the CarQuotes.com Target Price. CarQuotes.com does not administer these programs, which are subject to and often change without notice. Eligibility for these programs is subject to verification by a licensed auto dealer.

Ask your dealer representative for complete manufacturer program details for your area, and how participation in these programs will affect your price.

Base Vehicle

The base vehicle is the vehicle before any optional equipment or destination fees have been added. All of the standard features are included in the base vehicle.


This is the total charge for all optional equipment included in the configuration of your virtual vehicle. The Options charge varies depending on whether it is calculated based on the Factory Invoice or MSRP. Options are not included in the base vehicle price and are not considered standard features.

Regional Fees

A Regional Fee is the fee a manufacturer charges a dealer to advertise and promote the vehicle in the dealer’s market. CarQuotes also includes estimated manufacturer preparation charges (manufacturer charges to the dealer to cover any work done on the car prior to delivering it to the dealership) and fuel charges (the charge for the fuel in the tank when the buyer purchases the vehicle) in this total. CarQuotes attempts to include regional ad fees in its Factory Invoice calculations; other sites at times do not.

Destination Fees

These are the amounts that manufacturers charge to deliver a vehicle from the factory to the dealership.

Customer Incentives

Customer incentives are also commonly known as customer cash or bonus incentives. These incentives are offered by manufacturers as a way of enticing buyers into purchasing a vehicle.


Note: Dealer Invoice amount might not be the amount that the dealer paid to the manufacturer

Dealer Invoice price may or may not bear close relation to a dealer’s actual cost for the vehicle. In some cases, a cost for a vehicle may be significantly less than the invoice price originally paid for the vehicle. Any difference between invoice price and the dealer’s final cost may be caused by many factors including factory refunds, rebates, allowances, or incentives which the manufacturer or distributor may provide to the dealer.
