The new 1.5L turbo employs the stop/start technology introduced on the 2014 Malibu, which enhances efficiency in stop-and-go driving, contributing to a GM-estimated 27 mpg in city driving - an 8-percent increase over the current model. On the highway, 1.5L-equipped models also feature active grille shutters that reduce aerodynamic drag to optimize efficiency. The Malibu more-efficient standard engine delivers a GM-estimated 160 horsepower (119 kW) and 184 lb-ft of torque (250 Nm). The torque is comparable to the current model standard 2.5L naturally aspirated engine in a vehicle package that nearly 300 pounds lighter. A higher-output 2.0L turbocharged engine is available, offering a GM-estimated 250 horsepower (186 kW) and 258 lb-ft of torque (350 Nm), for a higher degree of performance - but not at the expense of good efficiency. Malibu 2.0T models are GM-estimated at 22 mpg in the city and 32 on the highway. An all-new, GM-developed eight-speed automatic transmission - the first eight-speed automatic in a GM front-wheel-drive vehicle - contributes to the 2.0T balance of performance and efficiency. The 1.5L turbo engine is matched with a six-speed automatic.
"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.
Chevrolet introduced the all-new 2018 Traverse. Wrapped in bold and refined styling, the completely redesigned Traverse offers technologies to help keep passengers of all ages and lifestyles comfortable and connected. Traverse will deliver what is expected to be best-in-class third-row legroom, maximum cargo room and passenger volume with an enhanced roster of available active safety features.
Loading the Traverse is a breeze with a new Chevrolet bowtie logo lamp feature illuminating the ground to show where drivers need to place a foot to activate the available hands-free power liftgate. A new split-folding second-row seat improves on the Traverse‘s original Smart Slide® feature. The curbside seat is capable of tipping up and sliding forward, even with a forward-facing child seat in place, to provide open and easy access to the third row. Third-row legroom is expected to be the most spacious in the segment at 33.7 inches (856 mm).
