Chevrolet Equinox sales decreased 1.6 percent to 78,014 units in the third quarter – somewhat concerning performance given the ongoing shift in consumer purchase dynamics that favors crossovers. So, in a potential effort to reverse declining Equinox sales, the Bow Tie brand introduced a rather attractive incentive offer for December 2018.
The nationwide Chevrolet incentive on the 2018 Equinox is $750 customer cash plus $2,000 bonus cash plus a cash allowance of $1,000 when one finances with GM Financial. The result is a $3,750 total cash allowance off MSRP.
This deal is applicable to all 2018 Chevy Equinox models except for L models. For reference, here are the applicable Equinox trim levels and their corresponding starting MSRPs:
- LS (1LS) – $26,595
- LT (2FL, 1LT, 2LT, 3LT) – $27,795
- Premier (1LZ, 2LZ, 3LZ) – $31,795
The Chevrolet incentive brings the starting price of the Equinox LS to $22,845, the Equinox LT to $24,045, and the range-topping Equinox Premier to $28,045.
- Must take delivery by January 2, 2019.
- See dealer for details.
- Incentive for the United States of America, unless otherwise specified.
- Some customers may not qualify for this offer.

In addition, the manufacturer can change incentive information at any time and without notice. Always consult with your dealer regarding color availability information before making purchase decisions. GM Authority will not be held responsible for any misprints, typos or any other errors.
About Chevrolet Equinox
The Chevrolet Equinox is a compact crossover. It slots above the Chevrolet Trax and below the Chevrolet Traverse. It will also be positioned below the rumored to be the future Chevrolet Blazer. The first-generation Equinox ran from the 2005-2009 model years and was based on the first-generation Theta platform. The second-generation Equinox was offered from the 2010-2017 model years and was based on the Theta 2 platform. Both the first- and second-generation models were "tweeners", in that they straddled the compact and midsize CUV segments in size. The third-generation model was introduced for the 2018 model year. It rides on the GM D2 platform shared with the second-generation GMC Terrain, Chevrolet Cruze, and Chevrolet Volt and, unlike its two predecessors, is positioned squarely in the compact segment.
The third-generation, 2018 and newer Equinox features an all-new exterior and interior, while being slightly smaller inside and out compared to the outgoing model. It also offers an all-new engine lineup and an all-new lightweight architecture that enables a weight savings of over 400 pounds compared to the second-gen model. As a result, the new Equinox gets better fuel economy while also delivering improvements in ride, handling, packaging, and safety.
The Equinox is assembled at the following GM plants:
- GM CAMI plant in Ontario, Canada operated by GM Canada
- GM Ramos plant in Ramos Arizpe, Coahuila, Mexico operated by GM Mexico
- Wuhan II plant in Hubei, China operated by Shanghai-GM
