2018 Chevrolet Equinox near Georgetown TX
With its effortless, car-like handling, SUV-class seating height, and amazing practicality, the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox near Georgetown TX is a compelling choice indeed. As in other years, Chevrolet has come out swinging with the Equinox; its lengthy options sheet offers a range of active safety and infotainment features. All that’s great, but its fuel efficiency is worth mentioning as well. Read on to learn more about the 2018 Equinox, which is available at Covert Chevy of Hutto, our dealership serving Georgetown Texas.
Exterior – 2018 Chevrolet Equinox
The exterior styling on the 2018 Equinox is pure Chevrolet, but that’s not a bad thing. It looks perfectly at home in our showroom serving Georgetown Texas, and despite having one of the longest wheelbases in its class, it doesn’t feel at all unwieldy when maneuvering or parking in cramped spaces. Its styling is relatively tame; all models come standard with 17 inch wheels. However, a step up to the Premium trim will bring standard 18″ or optional 19″ rims. The LT and Premier trim lines come with an available power panoramic sunroof, and all Equinoxes come with standard passive entry, push button start, and proximity key.
Interior – 2018 Chevrolet Equinox near Georgetown TX
Nicely styled and made from rugged, durable materials, the cabin of the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox should appeal to a broad range of buyers. Both rear- and front-seat passengers will find themselves quite comfortable in the roomy interior, and there are enough creature comforts to keep everyone happy on long road trips. The first and second rows of seats are sufficiently spacious for four adults, and the reclining back seat allows passengers to stretch out and get comfortable. All seating surfaces are plush and cushioned, which will make comfort-conscious drivers happy during their search for specials to Georgetown.
The Equinox’s cargo area is very competitive for the class, and buyers will find it easy to fit at least eight carry-on bags in there. By dropping the split folding rear seat, drivers will get the benefit of a flat loading surface, which makes it easier to load bulky items. Chevrolet has created a nifty way to stow the rear seat as well; pull the lever in the cargo hold, and the seat back folds flat and forward with no need to remove the headrests or push the seat down from the side. Parents, in particular, will be happy to see the cavernous storage bin in the center console.
Mechanical and Performance – Equinox specs near Georgetown
Although many see crossovers as bland, boring family haulers, there’s no real reason they can’t give the driver a bit of fun. The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox, which is one of our specials to Georgetown, feels quite dexterous on curvy roads, but its strong brakes are among some of the best in its class. Its engine provides enough get-up-and-go for most city and suburban driving situations, but its fuel efficiency somewhat makes up for its slight lack of power.
It’s agreeable to drive and it handles competently, with its direct, accurate steering. A few may find the ride somewhat abrupt, but with 17-18″ wheels, it’s comfortable enough for most drivers. The suspension is well-damped on smooth streets, and it performs equally well in highway driving. Stop by Covert Chevy of Hutto, our dealership serving Georgetown Texas, to see it in action.
Powertrain – Chevrolet Equinox specs near Georgetown TX
The base model comes with a turbocharged four-cylinder that puts out 170hp. When combined with the available AWD system, it takes a bit longer to get the Equinox up to cruising speed, but what it lacks in that area, it makes up in around-town capabilities and towing capacity. The standard six-speed auto transmission provides seamless shifts, and, in the name of fuel efficiency, the period between downshifts is a bit extended. Those who want more power can consider the turbo 2.0L four-cylinder or the turbo diesel 1.6L four, which are both worthy replacements. With the beefier turbo 2.0L engine, the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox near Georgetown TX offers a highly competitive towing capacity of 1500 pounds.
Safety – 2018 Chevrolet Equinox dealer
Crossovers are popular among parents, and for good reason. A large cargo area with plenty of room for strollers, baby gear and groceries eliminates many transportation-related frustrations. Installing child seats is simple, as the LATCH anchors are accessible, seating surfaces are flat, and the roomy rear passenger area doesn’t come at the expense of front seat legroom.
There’s good news for safety-conscious buyers. Auto emergency braking and high beams, as well as lane keep assist, are all available on the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox Premium. Mid-range LT models come with optional rear cross traffic alert, parking sensors, and blind spot monitoring via the Confidence & Convenience package.
