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.)

However, low speed collision alert and braking, lane departure warning and lane keep assist as well as surround view cameras and a haptic seat are part of the $1,895 Comfort and Convenience II package.
