Their display did point out a couple different engine options that would be available in Canada, including the diesel. So it seems like Mazda itself is advertising the Diesel, so I am very confident that we will actually see it next year.

The new CX-5 is a pretty sharp looking vehicle as well.
Ok sharp looking minus the smaller cargo space (around 31 cubic feet) vs the Toyota RAV4 hybrid (around 36 cubic feet).


When you have a family every cubic inch/centimeter maters.

Really not a lot out there that rivals the TDI Sportwagen for space, milage and being fun to drive. I don't know how many times i can keep re-schedueling my buyback appointments, but i will keep putting it off for now.

2018 Equinox with diesel configurator is up on the chevy website. I had to type equinox diesel into the search for it to pop up. At least for now, it appears you'll be able to get the diesel on all trims.

Mazda CX-5 diesel road test may be of interest to some. Yes, AutoCar is British.

Did diesel pricing show up for you? If so, your thoughts would be appreciated.

Went looking for the diesel Equinox and did not see it on Chevy website, just the 1.5 turbo. But a Google search found this article:

It is a VERY hard slam on GM pricing.

Correct. From an overall engineering optimization approach, on the average, in my humble opinion, any wagon is better than an SUV.


But alas Americans do not want wagons in large enough numbers to bring more of them here. So keep yours if you can.


I would say that the likelihood of getting a Mazda 6 wagon in the USA is even lower than buying any Mazda vehicle with a diesel engine in the foreseeable future.

My mistake. I thought the 1.5l was the diesel. Comparing the upcharge on the Colorado for diesel, your linked article could be close to the actual pricing to put the top model around $40K US. However, I'm not sure that GM will add all of the "goodies" from the Colorado into the Equinox to help bridge the price gap.
