Learn more about the performance features of the Equinox at Chevrolet of Homewood.
The Chevy Equinox gives you the choice between three engines, and for 2018, all three are turbocharged. Let’s take a look at their performance numbers:
- 1.5L Turbo Four-Cylinder Engine – The Equinox crossover’s standard engine gets 170 hp and 203 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy is competitive at 32 mpg highway with front-wheel drive.
- 1.6L Turbo-Diesel Engine – For enhanced efficiency and acceleration, you can upgrade to this turbocharged diesel engine. It gets 137 hp, 240 lb-ft of torque, and Chevy estimates that it will reach 40 mpg highway with front-wheel drive. This engine will be available in late summer of 2017.
- 2.0L Turbo Four-Cylinder Engine – With 252 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, this engine offers the highest performance figures in the lineup. The EPA estimates its fuel economy at 29 mpg highway with front-wheel drive, and its expected availability is summer 2017
Available Performance Features
The Equinox includes a number of features that make driving in Calumet City and Homewood convenient. A switchable all-wheel drive system can be added to all trim levels except the L, and it allows you to change to all-wheel drive on the fly when you encounter difficult road conditions. It’s a must have for Chicagoland winters. When you’re done using all-wheel drive, switch it off for improved fuel economy. In addition, the upgraded 2.0L turbocharged engine provides a tow/haul mode, which adjusts the transmission to compensate for heavy loads.
