Torque is abundant with this powertrain, measuring in at an impressive 460 lb-ft, you’ll make light work of towing boats, horse trailers, you name it, with 8300 lb towing capacity included with the as standard trailering package, there isn’t much you can’t tow!

The Variable Valve Timing provides efficient power delivery and excellent torque across the rev range, giving this large vehicle excellent pickup both around the town and at highway speed.

For a large SUV, the Escalade feels incredibly nimble, managing 0-60 miles per hour in just 6.1 seconds. The power is transferred to the road via the intelligent 10 speed automatic transmission with manual gear selector mode for total control.

Helping with both handling and comfort is the available Magnetic Ride Control system. This incredible suspension reads the road up to one thousand times per second for incredibly responsive adaptation to changing conditions. This amazing technology, first pioneered by Cadillac, utilizes magnetically charged fluid in the shocks. Different road conditions cause the fluid to react in different ways, changing how it behaves, and resulting in incredibly responsive performance.

It all starts with the ultra-high-strength construction, the vehicle is built around a steel-alloy safety cage for incredible protection. The construction element is augmented by electronic and mechanical safety systems designed to detect and limit danger faster than the human alone eye could possibly register.

The Escalade’s Surround Vision ‘bird’s-eye’ camera projects on to the CUE screen, giving you a full 360 degree view of your surroundings when the vehicle is driving at low speed or in reverse. This provides a great deal of special awareness to the driver when maneuvering in restricted spaces such as parking lots and driveways.

The 2018 Cadillac Escalade can be fitted with Lane Keep Assist and Lane Departure Warning. These systems assist in collision avoidance by gently turning the wheel in the opposite direction should they detect that you have drifted towards a lane marker unintentionally. If you continue across the lane marker without signaling, the system can provide both audiovisual or physical stimuli to alert the driver in the form of a warning message on the display with a beep, or a seat pulse. You will still be in full control of your vehicle, as the system will not activate should it detect that you are actively steering, and can be overridden at any time, again by actively turning the wheel. The Lane Change Alert system, available in the Driver Awareness package, uses radar technology to monitor the blind spots either side of the vehicle, displaying an alert in the wing mirrors should it detect any other vehicle in the blind spots.

The latest Cadillac Escalade is a stunning vehicle that must be seen to be truly appreciated. The thoughtful touches come together in perfect harmony, with features you didn’t know you needed, but once you’ve tried them you can’t live without.

New 2018 Chevrolet Equinox (In-Depth Review)

Refreshed for the 2018 model year, the Chevrolet Equinox is back and better than ever! The ever-popular Equinox has undergone a complete redesign; resulting in significant weight loss, helping to make this the most efficient Equinox yet. Your Windsor Chevrolet dealer is proud to bring you the details of the latest Chevy crossover SUV.

The all new 2018 Equinox has been very cleverly engineered; Chevrolet has made this new vehicle both smaller and lighter than the outgoing model without any significant impact to interior cabin space. Head and legroom remains copious, and the rear will seat adults in comfort, as well as provide ample room for both forward and rear facing child car-seats. In addition to the spacious cabin, you’ll also find that the trunk is generously sized, and if your cargo still won’t fit, with the pull of a lever the back seats fold flat to reveal a truly cavernous space; to be exact, 63.5 cubic feet!

The weight saving measures have been effective in several ways; firstly fuel economy. With less weight to haul in combination with Chevrolet’s powerful new 4 cylinder turbocharged engines, the Equinox manages to stay away from the pumps longer than ever before! Also helping to keep the Chevy Equinox as economical as possible is the now standard engine stop-start feature. This feature cuts the engine out when the vehicle is at a stand still and the brake is depressed so that gas is not wasted when you’re sitting at a red light, or stuck in traffic. As soon as you take your foot off the brake, the engine automatically starts again and you’re ready to go! Not only is this saving you money in gas, it’s helping you to do your part to cut emissions, something you can truly feel good about.

The Chevy lineup is big on safety, and the Equinox is no exception. With a big selection of both standard and optional equipment, the Chevrolet Equinox is definitely a safe choice. Featuring easy to use LATCH anchors for child car-seats, and features such as Chevy’s ‘Teen Driver’ which allows safety conscious parents to monitor their children’s driving habits, and of course the rear-view camera system, giving greater visibility when reversing. Additional optional features include:

  • Low Speed Forward Automatic Braking, this advanced safety feature will automatically apply brakes in an attempt to avoid collisions with any detected vehicle ahead
  • Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, this is a semi autonomous feature which detects whether the driver has drifted from their lane and gently applies the steering wheel in the appropriate direction to correct the drift as well as presenting alerts
  • The birds-eye Surround Vision system, which by using 4 cameras places strategically around the vehicle give a virtual 360 degree view of the Chevy Equinox
  • Rear Cross Traffic Alert, which uses radar sensors to check your rear surroundings for approaching traffic when reversing
  • Rear Park Assist, also using radar, this system creates an audible alert if any objects become too close and also shows the projected path of the vehicle with guidance lines on the touchscreen display
  • Side Blind Zone Alert, by using side mounted radar sensors this system will alter the driver if another vehicle is currently in their blind spot
  • Lane Change Alert, with this feature, the Equinox will detect rapidly approaching vehicles during a lane change maneuver and alert the driver

If you have young children in the car, you needn’t worry about safety alerts disturbing nap time, the available Safety Alert Seat feature will activate seat-bottom vibrations in place of audible alarms to keep you informed as to what is happening around your Equinox.

The LT trim continues to build upon the great standard and available features already mentioned with; high intensity discharge lamps, power-adjustable driver’s seat with lumbar adjustment, body color mirror caps, second row seat release levers, deep-tinted rear windows, as well as roof rack fittings. The LT trim allows for the optional addition of the confidence & convenience package as well as the sun & infotainment package. Where the LT trim really steps up the game is with the ability to add the 1.6 L turbo diesel or the 2.0L turbocharged gasoline engine, mated to a 9-speed automatic transmission. If the 2.0L engine option is added, even more features are included with the already generously equipped LT including; upgraded 18-inch bright aluminum wheels and chrome dual-exhaust.

Premier:
The Premier trim is the top of the line in the 2018 Chevy Equinox range. It comes as standard with heated leather seats with driver memory function, rear cross traffic and side blind zone alert, hands free power lift gate, 18-inch bright aluminum wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, 8-inch touch screen MyLink infotainment display, USB ports in front console storage area, rear seat USB charging ports, auto-dimming rear view mirror, 120-volt power outlet, remote start, LED headlamps and tail lamp, heated wing mirrors with auto-dimming, turn signal indicators and chrome mirror caps.

The standard 1.5L, turbocharged, 4 cylinder engine provides 170 horsepower, making the Equinox more than capable on all roads. The 2.0L turbocharged engine is another matter altogether! With 252 horsepower, it is a real performer, providing strong, smooth acceleration as well as ample torque. Power is transferred to the road in this case, via the 9-speed automatic transmission. With it’s all around anti-lock disc brakes, the 2018 Chevy Equinox makes stopping as much a priority as acceleration.

The variable weighing of the steering allows for light and easy handling at low speeds with increased weight at high speed for better road-keeping qualities. The powerful engines and great suspension setups and weight distribution of the Equinox ensure that curvy back roads are handled not only with ease, but with enjoyment!

Chevrolet have worked hard to strike the best balance possible with the handling in the new Equinox. The suspension has been impressively tuned to minimize roll and maximize responsiveness, while at the same time giving a comfortable ride on bumpy and undulating road surfaces.

For those more concerned with fuel economy than outright performance, regard should be given to the excellent 1.6L turbo diesel. With 137 horsepower, 240 ft-lb of torque and delivering big MPG figures, the diesel is a great option for anyone looking to save at the pumps as a priority. The diesel option also has the benefit of the famous low-rev diesel torque, making it a viable option for towing too. Chevrolet have really broken the mold with the diesel version, unlike many diesel-powered cars available on the market today, the Equinox is quiet and refined. Ecology as well as fuel economy were considered in the design of this powertrain, with the exhaust after treatment system, harmful emission output to atmosphere is significantly reduced.
