A 400-pound weight loss and a slick new design puts the next-generation Chevrolet Equinox on a par with other crossovers.

The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox has been redesigned to be 400 pounds lighter.

While that's a huge amount of weight to lose, it just means the Equinox is now in the same weight class as rivals like the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4.

The Equinox can be had with three engine options. Our test model has a 1.5-liter turbocharged engine, good for 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque.

Adaptive cruise control is not available on any trim line of the Equinox. (Insert sad trombone sound here.)

The top-end Premier trim gets blind spot monitoring and rear-cross traffic alert standard.
