New Year, New Style.


What better way to start out the New Year but in a re-designed 2018 Chevrolet Equinox? If you’re looking for a compact SUV with a fresh, new look and state-of-the-art safety features, look no further!

It’s no surprise that the #Equinox is Chevy’s second-best selling retail vehicle, following the ever-favorite Silverado. And we know why. The new streamlined and modern design features mimic the Cruz, Volt and Malibu. The impressive design is carried throughout the interior of the vehicle, as well. Your passengers will ride in total comfort and enjoy the best in entertainment, thanks to the latest 7- and 8-inch-diagonal MyLink infotainment systems. Pure enjoyment!

Whether you’re looking for capability, performance standards or the most efficient vehicle, the Chevy 2018 Equinox more than hits the mark. We also love that the vehicle is 400 lbs. lighter than the previous design.

Ever drive a vehicle that actually made you a better driver?  This one will, because it enhances driver awareness.  You can drive with ease and peace of mind with all-new crash-avoidance features, including:  surround vision, lane keep assist with lane departure warning,  safety alert seat, a rear seat reminder, low-speed forward automatic braking and forward collision!

Do you have a teen driver?  You’ll be able to encourage safe driving habits even when you’re not in the vehicle. The available #TeenDriver option offers in-vehicle report cards and allows controls to be set before sending your new driver out alone.

And wait until you look under the hood!  That’s where you’ll see the biggest changes. Three #turbocharged engine choices include: 1.5L turbo, 2.0L turbo or 1.6L turbo-diesel. This is North America’s first compact SUV turbo diesel engine.

Subaru Forester Showcases its Capabilities in Extreme Winter Conditions

Pine Belt 2 Subaru Forester Showcases its Capabilities in Extreme Winter Conditions

With compact SUVs currently being the hottest segment in the automotive industry, Consumer Reports wanted to find out how some of the top vehicles in the segment perform in extreme winter conditions. At its Auto Test Center in Connecticut, Consumer Reports tested three of the top compact SUVs (Subaru Forester, Honda CR-V, and Toyota RAV4) that are still equipped with their all-season tires. The tests involved straight-line acceleration, braking, hill-climbing, and taking on sharp corner turns. The straight-line acceleration test showed that the Subaru Forester was able to accelerate to 60 mph in 12.1 seconds, surpassing the Honda CR-V and Toyota RAV4 by 1.2 and 2.3 seconds respectively. After undergoing braking tests, results showed that the Forester and RAV4 took about the same distance to come to a halt from 60 mph. It took almost 50 extra yards for the CR-V to come to a stop. During the hill-climbing and corner tests, the Forester showcased its superiority. The all-wheel-drive system worked the way it was meant to as it responded to the driver’s actions and maintain traction throughout the track. After conclusion of the weeks-long tests, Consumer Reports proclaimed the Subaru Forester as the clear winner in snowy conditions. You can experience the all-wheel-drive system on a Subaru Forester for yourself at Pine Belt Subaru in Lakewood.
