2018 Chevy Equinox in Edmonton, AB
Since the Chevy Equinox was first introduced to Don Wheaton customers for the 2005 model year, it has become one of the automaker’s most successful models and a perennial top contender in the hotly contested crossover SUV class. Once the 2018 Chevy Equinox in Edmonton, AB arrives to the Don Wheaton showroom, customers will be laying eyes on the first of a brand new generation of affordable, comfortable and well-equipped crossover SUVs. For the new model year, the 2018 Equinox has been given a fully modern ‘expressive exterior (and) a lean, muscular skin echoing the global Chevrolet design cues…,” according to the automaker.
Buyers looking at the Don Wheaton inventory of the 2018 Chevy Equinox in Edmonton, AB will notice more chrome used across the several available trim grades. If this looks familiar, this is the same kind of exterior style upgrade that was applied to the latest version of the Chevy Malibu midsize sedan. Projector beam headlights are accented by LED daytime running lights. The overall stance of the 2018 Equinox appears to be wider thanks to the horizontally oriented taillights. LED taillights are available on higher trims. Passengers will still have access to the same amount of space in the 2018 Equinox, even though the total weight of the crossover SUV has been decreased by around 400 pounds.
Performance of the 2018 Equinox
The most important headline surrounding the upgrades made to the 2018 Chevy Equinox in Edmonton, AB is the addition of turbocharged diesel engine.

Early estimates from General Motors Canada have the 2018 Equinox topping out at 5.9 L/100 km. Specifications for towing with the 2018 Chevy Equinox have yet to be released.
