Chevrolet Equinox Engine Options Get Updates for 2018

The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox arrives completely redesigned this year. With an all-new design, the Chevrolet Equinox engine options also get updated. In fact, the new Equinox gives buyers a choice from among three turbocharged engines.

“With three choices, customers can select an engine that offers more of the attributes that are important to them: efficiency, performance and capability,” said Dan Nicholson, vice-president, Global Propulsion Systems. “The advantage for each is power of a larger engine and the fuel economy of a smaller engine.”

The base engine is a turbocharged 1.5-liter engine that generates 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque. It delivers an EPA-estimated 32 mpg highway*.

Next is an available turbocharged 2.0-liter that delivers more performance at 252 horsepower and 260 lb-ft of torque. This engine is the ideal choice for drivers who plan to do any towing and offers up to 3,500 pounds of towing capacity, when properly equipped. It also offers an EPA-estimated 29 mpg highway*.

Finally, for drivers who want to maximize efficiency, the 1.6-liter turbo-diesel is a first for this segment. It is rated at 137 horsepower and 240 lb-ft of torque. This engine has not been officially tested by the EPA yet; however, GM estimates that is should return about 40 mpg on the highway. This engine will not be available until later in the model year.

Chevrolet Redline Series

For the 2017 model year, Chevrolet is adding an exciting lineup of new special edition models in the form of the Redline Series. These models will blend together sophistication and performance with visual accents to set them apart from other models.

Redline Silverado


Redline models are available on the 2017 Silverado 1500, Colorado, Camaro, Cruze Sedan, and Cruze Hatch. Even more models will be added for the 2018 model year including the Traverse, Equinox, Trax, and Malibu.

Every Redline model will come with a black grille and bowtie, signature black wheels with red painted accents, and additional design elements depending on the model. And, to show off the black and red accents, each model comes with a Silver Ice Metallic paint.

Coming Soon

The 2017 Chevrolet Silverado Redline Edition is the first of this special series. It is available on LT Z71 double cab and LTZ Z71 crew cab models. It comes with 20-inch wheels with red accents, Silverado badges with red outlines, red tow hooks, off-road assist steps, spray-in bedliner, black mirror caps, black grille, black headline trim, and body color front and rear bumpers.

In late spring 2017, the Colorado, Camaro, and Cruze models will be available. The Colorado Redline is available on LT Extended and Crew Cab models. On the Camaro, the Redline features can be added to both convertible and coupe models in the RS and SS trims. And, both Cruze Redline models are available on the LT trims with the RS Appearance Package.

With these unique styling elements, each Redline model shows off its sporty side.
