Chevy Makes Big Bet on Smaller Equinox

Chevy formula means less is more.

by on Aug.25, 2017

Less weight, fewer cylinders, shorter body. It adds up to more from the '18 Chevy Equinox.

It seems like every time an automaker introduces a new version of an old car or truck they immediately begin by telling us just how much bigger it is than the outgoing model. That “midsize” Chevrolet Colorado? It’s nearly the same size as a full-size Silverado was a few generations back.

So, imagine our surprise when Chevy rolled out the new-for-2018 Equinox and began bragging how much smaller it is than the old crossover-utility vehicle: four inches shorter, 400 pounds lighter – and its biggest powertrain now has two fewer cylinders, as well.

Reviews You Can Trust!

Now, not everything has been downsized. The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox manages to deliver the same interior space for both passengers and cargo as before and that focus on lightweighting is one reason that the new model delivers up to more than 40 miles per gallon, depending upon which of the three engine options you choose.
