The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is an all-new CUV arriving in a market that can’t get enough crossovers. First to launch was the model with the base 1.5L Turbo LYX engine in the spring of 2017. Models with the 2.0L Turbo LTG and 1.6L turbo-diesel LH7 engines followed shortly after in the summer. But a funny thing happened: Chevy’s online configurator for the Equinox was not updated to reflect the additional configurations with the 2.0L turbo engine, despite these models now being available at dealers, causing uncertainty among consumers interested in the vehicle.
So while Chevy updates its Equinox configurator to include 2.0L Turbo and 1.6L Turbo Diesel configurations, we have confirmed that the model with the 2.0L Turbo will have a starting price of $30,090. That’s for the 2.0L Turbo engine in the LT (2LT) trim level and FWD. The engine is good for 252 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, and is mated to the new GM nine-speed automatic transmission. By comparison, the 2018 Equinox with the base 1.5L Turbo engine starts at $23,580.
In the 2018 Equinox, the 2.0L Turbo will only be available with the LT (2LT) and Premier (2LZ) trim levels, with either front-wheel-drive or all-wheel-drive.
Stay tuned as we get more complete pricing info on the 2018 Equinox in the weeks ahead.
