The new upcoming 2018 Chevy Equinox will hit the showrooms sometime next year, and this new model will be the next or more precisely the third generation of Equinox model. As we know, the second gen of this model was introduced back in 2010, and we saw only one refresh for 2016 model. Despite that refreshment, this model will introduce the next generation, and we and expect a lot of new things and redesigns in order to improve sales. Everything on the 2018 Chevy Equinox will be improved starting from the redesigned exterior design to the revised interior and to the upgrade engines.
2018 Chevy Equinox – Refreshed Appearance:
The exterior design of the 2018 Chevy Equinox will be very attractive, and the redesigns will be very notable. Thanks to that fact, this model also looks like a more aggressive vehicle. When it comes to some specific details from the outside, we can see elegantly designed and slightly modified front grille. The upper part and the lower part of the grille are now closer to each other.
The upper part contains small Chevy logo, and if you remember, in 2016 model, the Company logo was located between upper and lower part. Also, on this model, the headlights, and the grille are connected. The LED system will power all the lights on the vehicle. Under the grille, everything will remain the same as before, and here we can notice large front bumper fitted with LED fog lights and with air intakes. At the sides, we can expect large wheels made from aluminum, but its size is not known yet.
Luxury and Elegance Interior:
From the inside, we can also expect some improvements, and we can start from the comfort. This model will definitely provide better comfort compared to the current model, and the leather upholstery will be standard. The leather will be visible on the steering wheel as well. The dashboard is slightly modified, and at the first glance, this dash isn’t stylish like before. The center stack will also receive some minor tweaks; more precisely, it will be shorter than before. When it comes to systems, we can expect updated infotainment system as well as a lot of standard interior features. Some of the other features in the cabin will include adaptive cruise control, most likely dual zone climate control, excellent audio system, a lot of options for connectivity, as well as a lot of safety features.

The other gasoline engine will be 3.6-liter four-banger with the capability of generating up to 301 HP which is excellent for SUV.
