The reimagined 2018 Chevrolet Equinox has received an official starting price tag before it launches in spring of 2017. As the new Equinox prepares to do battle in the highly-contested compact crossover space, it will arrive with a starting price of $24,475, which includes destination, but not taxes and other dealer fees.
The price actually reflects an increase from the current Equinox, which starts at $23,100, but falls in line with various competitors. For example, a 2017 Honda CR-V starts at $400 less than the 2018 Equinox.
When it launches, the 2018 Equinox will arrive in four trim levels — L, LS, LT and Premier — two gasoline engines — a 1.5-liter turbo and a 2.0-liter turbo; a 1.6-liter turbo diesel will join the lineup later on in the year. The 2.0-liter four-cylinder will be mated to GM’s new nine-speed automatic transmission.
As for technology, a seven-inch display is standard no matter the trim level, while an eight-inch will be optional. Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi will also be at your service in Chevy’s latest CUV.
The vehicle is set to go on sale in the first quarter of 2017 across North America, before becoming available across more markets globally.
