Thanks for the comments. Enjoying it the limited time I have had it.
Some comments and answers to questions:
1. I have found the 1.5T more than adequate to carry the new Nox reduced weight. I drove a 2017 Nox 2.4L back to back with the 2018 1.5T.
The 1.5 doesn't strain like I observed the 2.4 does. A lot of noise from the 2.4 with not a lot of forward movement. The 1.5T is sprightly off the line and quieter than the 2.4. Felt more responsive once under way as well.
2. Stop/start. Has not come on much as it's summer and with the ac pulling a heavier load it doesn't kick in. That said you can defeat it at stops by pulling the shifter back to L. I have let it cycle as well to stop/start and it keeps vitals functioning. I will update on this as I gain more experience with it. Overall not too bad, be great to have a defeat switch.
3. As far as deals. GM financial is very aggressive with their lease support. A 60 percent residual on a 36 month lease. Also as a current GM financial customer they allowed me lease cash to put down and I had GM card points.
4. Initial quality appears first rate. The chassis is stiff and the ride not too firm but is quiet while allowing road feel and some nimbleness for what it is. I did not get the huge sunroof. Didn't want it as I have a daily driver with one. I purchased the Nox for primarily winter driving needs. I did purchase the awd model. I have only driven it in fwd so far. Interesting that fwd is the default until you engage awd.

So far so good.

2018 Equinox LT 1.5 Mosaic Black. Confidence and Convenience Pkg. No sunroof.
