current outgoing Chevrolet Equinox may be receiving a lengthened lease on life, according to officials from the reveal of the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox.
Chevrolet is “finalizing” plans to continue producing the current Equinox for fleet use only, essentially following the strategy of creating “Limited” models, and it could be no different here with a hypothetical “Equinox Limited.” That may keep more Canadians at work since the current Equinox is produced north of the border. The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox will also remain a part of Canadian production at the CAMI facility.
General Motors has become no stranger to selling outgoing models exclusively to fleet vehicles. In the case of Chevrolet, the last-generation Malibu saw an extension of life as being fleet-exclusive, as did the aged, yet popular, last-generation Impala. There was also the Captiva Sport compact crossover, and the last-generation Cruze, as well, that all saw exclusive fleet use. Keep that in mind when it comes as Chevrolet transitions from the outgoing, larger Equinox to the 2018 Equinox next year.
