Get ready to ditch the gas station, the 2018 Chevy Equinox offers an EPA- certified 39 mpg on the highway with the available 1.6L turbo-diesel engine. The Equinox diesel is expected to have greater highway milage than the Toyota RAV4 Hybrid and the Nissan Rogue Hybrid. With a 577-mile cruising range means the Equinox diesel can get you a lot farther between fill-ups such as from Chicago to Memphis. “It is very fun to drive, with torque on demand at all speeds,” said Dan Nicholson, vice president of Global Propulsion Systems. “In fact, the engine delivers 90 percent of peak torque between 1,500 and 3,250 rpm. The strong torque provides the feeling of a larger engine, with exceptional smoothness and quietness.” Phillips Chevrolet in Frankfort, Lansing and Bradley has Illinois’ Largest Chevy Inventory including a great selection of Chevy Equinox’s which the diesel will join soon.
