Camouflaged prototypes serve their purpose. They skew the public’s eye and make our jobs harder to decipher details over an upcoming new vehicle. However, once they begin meandering onto public roads, all bets are off for anyone to take photos.
That is precisely what occurred as this 2018 Chevrolet Equinox prototype was spied in Germany. As you flip through the spy shots at Auto Evolution, take note of the backseat passenger. He’s wearing his middle finger high, and proud for the photographer.
Anyway, the 2018 Equinox has still not lost any of its heavy camo, leaving greater design details to be desired. We’ve said it once before, but expect the latest faces from the 2016 Cruze and Volt to be an influencer up front. As for power, it’s rumored the Buick Envision’s 2.5-liter four-cylinder engine will serve as a base, with a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder to become an option.
The 2018 Equinox will shorten up and slim down on the D2XX platform, making room for a new midsize crossover to come.
