Mollie Slater. Chevrolet. October 20th , 2017.
RST will be available on Tahoe and Suburban models in the fall of 2017. Inspired by aftermarket trends, virtually all chrome trim has been eliminated for a street performance appearance. Changes include body-color grille surround and door handles; gloss-black grille and mirror caps; black roof rails, window trim, badging and Chevy bowties. RST also includes exclusive 22-inch wheels wrapped in Bridgestone P285/45R 22 tires. Available upgrades for Tahoe and Suburban RST include a Borla performance exhaust system that offers a 28 percent improvement in exhaust flow, for a 7-10-horsepower gain at the rear wheels. An available brake package features massive front red Brembo six-piston, fixed aluminum calipers with brake pads clamping on larger-than-stock 410 x 32mm (16.1 inch x 1.3 inch) Duralife rotors coupled with a 84 percent increase in brake pad area and a 42 percent increase in rotor area to increase system thermal capacity. Duralife™ rotors feature a hardened surface to reduce corrosion and provide quieter braking with less vibration.
Specification levels will also impress, even in the entry LS model. Careful thought has been applied to what is a real need in an SUV as opposed to specification to impress. As examples, the power steering system is further aided by a rake adjustable steering column (also telescopic on the LT). There is air conditioning for comfort, power and heated door mirrors, speed sensitive windscreen wipers, electric windows all-round, vanity mirrors for both driver and passenger, a fully retracting loadspace cover and a tailgate glass that can be opened separately from the tailgate itself by the key fob remote control; they’re all there for convenience. Even the fully integrated in-car entertainment system has an MP3 function so that you can listen to your own choice in music. Front and side window tinting also helps to keep the large glass area under control in summer. The LS is only available with the 2.4 litre petrol engine and front wheel drive.
"From accelerating to turning corners, the 2018 Equinox drives lighter, which correlates with a greater feeling of precision," said Dennis. "It’s a dynamic, agile driving experience rooted in the solidity of the all-new body structure." The 2018 Equinox‘s body structure design was optimized with a mixed-material strategy for strength and low weight. More than 80 percent of the Equinox body structure is composed of high-grade steel materials, with high-strength steel comprising nearly 20 percent. The mixed-material design strategy employed to make the 2018 Equinox more responsive, refined and efficient is used on all recently introduced Chevrolet cars and crossovers, from the Malibu and Bolt EV to the 2018 Traverse. The all-new 2018 Equinox is a fresh and modern compact SUV featuring an expressive design, ample cargo space, Chevrolet latest connectivity, an expanded roster of available safety features and an all-new range of turbocharged engines - including the highly anticipated turbo-diesel.
The new RS package includes unique, blacked-out exterior cues with a black chrome grille, black bowtie, 20-inch wheels and more. The High Country trim features premium content and technology, including a unique interior trim featuring Loft Brown leather appointments with suede accents, 20-inch polished wheels, High Country badging, D-Optic headlamps, standard twin-clutch AWD and power-fold third row seats.
