Expert Reviews

Expert reviews: 

The new Equinox is based on an all-new architecture that weighs about 400 pounds less than its predecessor. Chevrolet credits the weight saving to high-strength steel and other grams-add-up type measures, but the reality is that there's quite a bit less Equinox this time around. The 2018 Equinox shrinks, losing its "tweener" status, and is now much closer to the Honda CR-V in all four main dimensions. To Chevy's credit the interior dimensions are pretty much the same, with the small hit in cargo space mitigated by the large hidden storage area under the cargo floor.
The pricing disparity against its competition is a shame, because the Equinox is a compelling compact crossover SUV in virtually every other way. It looks great inside and out, offers good high-tech features, drives exceptionally well, will offer a diesel engine, and the promise of a high-horsepower version sounds fun. We just wish Chevy would take the cue from its competitors and broaden the availability of its advanced safety tech and add in active cruise as well.

The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is a needed step forward for the brand and a solid compact crossover.

Pros
Solid base engine
Denim-like fabric is surprisingly comfortable
Lighter, brighter, and smarter
A fuel-efficient turbodiesel coming

Cons
Still hard plastics abound
Not as fuel-efficient as some
Safety features reserved for top trims
Smaller rear cargo area

By:

The 2018 Chevrolet Equinox is fully redesigned for 2018. It's slightly smaller overall compared to its predecessor, but the reduced weight combined with more efficient engines pay off at the pump.

Pros
Three engines to choose from, including a fuel-efficient diesel
Smooth ride over most road surfaces
Expansive list of optional safety features
MyLink user interface is intuitive and easy to use

Cons
Smaller cargo area compared to most of its competitors
Base L trim is special order only
The 1.5-liter engine and its slow-shifting transmission don't feel very lively

Load up an MKX and you'll be over $60,000 before you know it, but this under-the-radar crossover largely feels worth the dough—if you take the time to seek it out.
The 2017 Lincoln MKX is a mid-size crossover capable of seating five passengers in leather-lined comfort.

Pros
Handsome, reserved styling
Strong V-6 engines
Plush inside with a high degree of customizability
Comfortable suspension and good handling

Cons
No hybrid for the lineup
Gimmicky push-button shifter
Lincoln brand lacks full luxury cachet
AWD fuel economy is so-so

By: 
thecarconnection.com

The 2017 Lincoln MKX ranks 14 out of 22 Luxury Midsize SUVs. The mid-ranked 2017 Lincoln MKX is worth considering if you're seeking upscale accommodations for the family without a hefty price tag. The MKX offers outstanding safety scores and just as many features as other luxury midsize SUVs, though its fuel economy trails the majority of the class.

Pros
Potent twin-turbo V6 option
Outstanding safety scores
Budget-friendly for the class

Cons
Subpar fuel economy

By: 
usnews.com

The completely redesigned 2017 Lincoln MKX is now a more competitive midsize luxury crossover SUV. Comfortable and well-equipped, it's certainly worth a look.

Pros
Quiet interior with spacious rear seating; comfortable ride quality; a lot of features for the money; strong turbocharged V6 engine option.

Cons
Thick roof pillars and a small rear window impair rearward visibility; a few interior touch points aren't quite up to snuff.
