2018 Chevy Equinox Gets $24,475 Base Price
It was announced on Tuesday evening that the 2018 Equinox will start at $24,475 for the L trim with FWD, a price that includes destination but does not include tax, title, and assorted dealer fees. Chevrolet offered no further details as to what customers can expect to pay for additional trims—the Equinox will be offered in L, LS, LT, and Premier levels—or with available AWD or two available engine options.
It was revealed, however, that the 2018 Chevy Equinox will be among the first vehicles to receive General Motors’s new nine-speed automatic transmission, which was also announced on Tuesday. The new transmission, co-developed by GM and Ford, will make its debut on the 2017 Chevy Malibu.
As with the Malibu, the application of the nine-speed automatic with the Equinox comes in the form of the 2.0-liter Turbo, and it will also be mated to the Equinox’s segment-exclusive turbodiesel engine. Both additional engine options will be available from the second quarter of 2017, while the base 1.5-liter turbocharged engine will be offered at launch.
“In a word, crossover customers want one thing: everything. From comfort and connectivity to efficient performance and safety, the all-new 2018 Chevrolet Equinox delivers on all counts,” said Steve Majoros, director of marketing, Chevrolet Cars and Crossovers.
The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox will go on sale in spring 2017.
