Over the years, Chevrolet has developed a number of award-winning SUVs. The fully redesigned 2018 Chevrolet Equinox will remain one of the top small crossovers on the market. Not only does the all-new Equinox offer improved fuel efficiency, but it also delivers a more poised performance on the road. Despite a slight decrease in size, the latest Equinox still provides a superior amount of rear-seat legroom. Boasting upgrades such as perforated leather upholstery and LED headlights, the top-of-the-line Premier trim is especially luxurious. An optional AWD system gives you the ability to remain mobile in snowy weather.
If you need to accommodate a few extra passengers, the new 2018 Chevrolet Traverse remains a great choice. You will love this three-row crossover’s bolder styling and enhanced performance. Let’s take a look at how the 2018 Chevy Equinox compares to the 2018 Chevy Traverse.
The base power source for the new Equinox is a 1.5-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine. It is rated to produce a healthy 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque. As soon as you step on the gas, the crossover’s effortless acceleration will catch your attention. Fuel economy tops out at a thrifty 32 mpg. Under the hood of the new Traverse sits a beefy V-6 engine. When equipped with the available dual-outlet exhaust, the engine develops a muscular 305 horsepower. You can use the surplus of power to tow up to 5,000 pounds. If you desire an ever better combination of sportiness and efficiency, check out the new Traverse RS. It comes equipped with an exclusive turbocharged engine. Like the 2018 Equinox, the new Traverse benefits from improved handling.
Chevrolet continues to offer a long list of exciting features. Both of these crossover SUVs come standard with Chevy’s easy-to-use MyLink infotainment system. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto enable drivers to seamlessly integrate their smartphone. You also benefit from a responsive touch screen. Meanwhile, a 4G Wi-Fi hotspot allows everyone in your family to quickly connect to the web. When loading stuff into the cargo area, an available hands-free tailgate will make the task a lot easier. For the drivers who crave a more inspiring music-listening experience, the powerful Bose audio is destined to leave them impressed.
Whether you prefer the new Equinox or the redesigned Traverse, you will be surrounded by an extra level of protection. Several advanced safety features are available. To give worried parents an extra sense of security, Chevy has introduced a new Teen Driver mode. This convenient technology allows you to set a speed limit and track the vehicle’s whereabouts from your cell phone. Meanwhile, GM’s highly touted OnStar system provides around-the-clock roadside assistance. In the event of a potential crash, the automatic braking system will help you to avoid a catastrophe. Some of the other world-class driving aids include Side Blind Zone Alert, lane departure warning, and a vibrating Safety Alert Seat.
As you can see, both of these all-new crossovers are worthy of a test drive. While the 2018 Chevy Equinox is the perfect fit for most families, the 2018 Chevrolet Traverse is bigger and more suitable for towing. To experience both SUVs in person, contact our Chevrolet dealership.Schedule Test Drive
