According to a recent report, the 2018 Chevrolet Equinox Diesel will be priced from $31,435 in the United States.
CarsDirect reports the Equinox LT with the diesel engine will cost $3,740 more than models equipped with the turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder that produces 170 hp (127 kW) and 203 lb-ft (275 Nm) of torque.
When comparing the diesel engine to the turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, with 252 hp (188 kW) and 260 lb-ft (353 Nm) of torque, the price difference drops to just $1,345.
Of course, the diesel engine isn’t as powerful as the other two options as the 1.6-liter unit cranks out 137 hp (102 kW) and 240 lb-ft (325 Nm) of torque. On the upside, the model is expected to return 32 mpg city / 40 mpg highway with front-wheel drive and 31 mpg city / 37 mpg highway with all-wheel drive.
Buyers looking for something more luxurious can order the Equinox Premier Diesel which starts at $33,930. The model costs $2,195 more than the Premier with the 1.5-liter engine but is actually $600 less than the Premier with the turbocharged 2.0-liter engine because it doesn’t include additional features such as a dual exhaust system and 19-inch alloy wheels.
