2018 Nissan Rogue vs Chevy Equinox

If you're searching for a crossover SUV that can handle your busy lifestyle in Doylestown, Philadelphia, and Warminster, you're in the right place! The 2018 Nissan Rogue and the 2018 Chevy Equinox sport a variety of exciting features when it comes to performance, interior, and safety.

But how will you ever be able to choose between them? That's where we at Fred Beans Nissan come in. We've put together this informational comparison to help you decide which is a better fit for you. Let's get started by looking under the hoods of the Rogue and the Equnox!

Rogue vs Equinox: Performance Specifications

The 2018 Nissan Rogue is powered by a 2.5-L 4-cylinder engine. This engine, which comes paired with a front-wheel drivetrain, manufactures a respectable 170 horsepower. It also comes paired with a standard Xtronic® CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) which works to boost efficiency. That's how this vehicle achieves an impressive EPA-estimated 33 highway / 26 city MPG1.

The 2018 Chevy Equinox, on the other hand, is powered by a significantly smaller 1.5-L 4-cylinder engine. Though it also puts out 170 horsepower, you'll find that the Equinox is lacking a bit in efficiency when compared to the Rogue. The Equinox's engine, which is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission puts out a slightly lower EPA-estimated 33 highway MPG.

Rogue vs Equinox: Expansive Interior Space

When you're shopping for an SUV, one of your top priorities is interior space. The 2018 Nissan Rogue delivers in this category with 106 cubic feet of total passenger space as well as 39.3 cubic feet of spacious interior best-in-class2 cargo volume with all five seats in use.

 However, the Rogue makes it easy to utilize every inch of your vehicle's interior no matter how many passengers you have. Take advantage of the 60/40 split-folding rear seats to take advantage of all 70 feet of the Rogue's maximum interior cargo room. These seats also give you the option to put just one or two down depending on your cargo-to-passengers ratio.

The 2018 Chevy Equinox sports five seats in its interior but that's where the similarities between the two stop. This model has nearly 10 less cubic feet of cargo room to offer with all five seats up and gives you just 63.5 cubic feet of cargo space with the three rear seats folded down.

Rogue vs Equinox: Advanced Safety Features

With both the 2018 Nissan Rogue and the 2018 Chevy Equinox, you're going to have access to a variety of advanced safety features starting with Blind Spot Monitoring, Lane Departure Warning, Automatic Emergency Braking, and Surround View Monitors.

The latter feature takes the smart technology of the rearview camera and multiplies it to give you a 360-degree of your vehicle's surroundings. Right on your infotainment screen, you'll have a real-time look at everything happening around you in both the Nissan Rogue and the Chevrolet Equinox.
