The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox doesn’t portray itself as some unfortunate rental car lottery consolation prize, and that’s also clear in the varied nature of its color palette.
For a mainstream, compact crossover, Chevrolet has gotten a little bold with the color choices offered. Sure, there are the standard black, white and silver hues, but there are some that are welcome, and others that are—quite frankly—startling. Pepper Dust Metallic radiates in a lovely bronze hue and Sandy Ridge Metallic offers a different take on a typical tan color. Silver Ice and Storm Blue both look quite nice finished on the exterior of the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox as well.
But, the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox may also be ordered in Ivy Metallic, a surprisingly bold green color. And then there’s Orange Burst Metallic, which wouldn’t look out of place on a Chevrolet Camaro. Cajun Red looks good, but after so many rounds of the auto show circuit, it’s become a tad bland in our eyes. The fun colors are also a $395 premium over the standard color choices, while Iridescent Pearl Tricoat is a $995 option.
Moral of the story? We’re happy to see some bolder hues on a mainstream crossover. Declare war on vanilla, buy an orange 2018 Chevrolet Equinox.
