2018 Chevrolet Equinox 2.0T First Drive: Torque and Treat

2018-Chevrolet-Equinox-2.0T-PLACEMENT

When manufacturers aren’t introducing brand-new vehicles to fill the nooks and crannies that remain between segments, they’re altering the sizes and shapes of existing models to better fit the boundaries that have solidified since those cars were first introduced. With the all-new 2018 Equinox, Chevrolet is doing the latter: The new Equinox has been downsized to more closely align with other compact SUVs such as the Honda CR-V, the Mazda CX-5, the Ford Escape, and the Toyota RAV4, and in the process the Chevy has become a much better vehicle.

Spot the Improvements! 2018 Chevrolet Corvette and Z06 Receive Minor Updates

2018 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 Carbon 65 edition

While we all wait, patiently and otherwise, for the Chevrolet Corvette lineup’s mighty 2018 ZR1 to appear, the regular Corvette and Z06 models dive into 2018 with a minimum of changes and a neat Carbon 65 special edition. Don’t worry, a 455-hp 6.2-liter V-8 is still standard on the Stingray, while the Z06’s 650-hp supercharged V-8 hasn’t gone anywhere, either.

Starting with the Stingray, Chevrolet has upped the standard wheel package an inch in diameter to 19-inch fronts and 20-inch rears, added five new wheel choices overall, and broken out the Magnetic Ride Control adaptive suspension as a stand-alone option. (Previously, it was bundled with the Z51 performance package or a separate appearance package.) Exciting stuff, we know, but wait until you hear about the higher-resolution feed from the backup camera, the “enhanced head-up-display rotation setting,” and the handful of new interior and exterior color combinations.

For the Z06, the story is much the same, with new wheels (including one with a yellow stripe!) and more comprehensive data points (including individual wheel speeds, suspension movements, yaw rate, and intake air and ambient air temperatures) for the optional Performance Data recorder. Like the Stingray, the Z06 receives a better backup-camera feed, improved head-up-display adjustability, and new color choices inside and out.

That’s not a big list, but at least it’s accompanied by not-big year-over-year price hikes. Chevrolet is charging customers just $ 45 more for a Stingray or a Z06 for 2018, bringing those models’ base prices to $ 56,490 and $ 80,490.
