Recommended Posts


Ahead of its spring launch, Chevrolet has revealed the starting price for the 2018 Equinox. The base L front-wheel drive model will kick off at $24,475 (includes destination). This model will feature a turbocharged 1.5L four-cylinder with 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque.

Those looking for more power or fuel economy will need to wait until the second quarter when the turbo 2.0L and turbodiesel 1.6L four-cylinders go on sale. Front-wheel and all-wheel will be on offer. As for trims, the Equinox will be offered in L, LS, LT, and Premier. 

“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 for Chevrolet Cars and Crossovers.

We'll likely have more details on pricing and features as we get closer to the Equinox's launch.

NEXT-GEN 2018 CHEVROLET EQUINOX STARTS AT $24,475

  • Crossover offers customers the perfect blend of design, technology and value

DETROIT — Chevrolet announced today that pricing for the next-generation 2018 Equinox will start at $24,475 when it goes on sale this spring. The manufacturer’s suggested retail price includes the destination charge but excludes tax, title and additional dealer fees.

Equinox offers a fresh, new design and technologies to help keep passengers comfortable and connected on the road.

“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 Equinox will offer three turbocharged engines — including the segment’s first turbo-diesel — providing customers more choices when it comes to performance, efficiency and capability.

The standard 1.5L engine will be available at launch, with the 2.0L Turbo and diesel options available in the second quarter of 2017. The 2.0L engine will be coupled to GM’s new nine-speed automatic transmission, offering an exciting driving experience with more horsepower and torque.

The 2018 Equinox will be available in L, LS, LT and Premier trim levels, in FWD or AWD combinations.

Chevrolet’s connectivity technologies include a standard 7- and an available 8-inch-diagonal color touchscreen with MyLink infotainment designed to support Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, as well as an available OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot.*

The new Equinox offers an expanded range of active safety features:

  • New Safety Alert Seat
  • New Surround Vision
  • New Forward Collision Alert with Following Distance Indicator
  • New Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking
  • New Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning
  • Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert  
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert

Rear Seat Reminder and Teen Driver are also offered. Rear Seat Reminder can provide an alert when the rear doors are used during or just before a trip, prompting you to double-check for valuables left in the back seat when you exit the vehicle. Teen Driver allows parents to monitor driving habits and facilitates discussions to help encourage better driving habits, even when parents are not in the vehicle.

Interesting, I think the best combo will be the 2.0 Turbo and the Diesel. Wish they had a VOLT power train in this auto with AWD as that would just rock.

At $24,475 base, it blows the Trax out of the water.  The Trax needs to go down in price, pronto, Kemosabe.

Traxx should be like $18,990 and they could fit another crossover between Traxx and Equinox and get one more in between Equinox and Traverse.

It seems like GM is re-engineering their MSRP structure.  A few munts back, all the Camaros at the local dealership were getting their window stickers replaced to show a $500 base price reduction.  That is different than a rebate.

 

If I go into the inventory section of Chevy's site right now and look at local Trax inventory, there is a section there describing a "factory reduction in MSRP" of about $1100 in addition to a discount that reads as more temporary.  So that $29k Trax Premiere AWD is now $27k and change.  This is a necessary market correction, in my opinion, v. the competition.

      AutoGuide recently obtained a California Air Resources Board (CARB) document listing the pairings for the 6.2L V8 and various transmissions for the 2019 Camaro and Corvette. In the 'Trans Type' column, the Camaro is listed with M6, M7, and SA8. The middle one is the interesting bit as it hints that the Camaro will get a seven-speed manual.
      AutoGuide believes the seven-speed in question is the one used in the Corvette. But there arises an issue with this conclusion. The seven-speed manual transmission for the Corvette mounts at the rear axle, whereas the manual transmission for the Camaro mounts at the engine. So GM could either figure out some way of finagling the Corvette's seven-speed into the Camaro or there is something else in the works. 
      We'll be keeping a close eye on this.
