General Motors unveiled a revamped compact SUV Thursday night. reports that the Chevrolet Equinox will undergo a major overhaul, as GM hopes the changes will reverse a downhill sales pattern facing the model, with Equinox sales down 18 percent in August.

The new Equinox will be 400 pounds lighter, will be shorter, and will be lower. New engines will also be available; two turbocharged 4-cylinder engines will be offered along with a 4-cylinder turbo diesel engine.

GM will not wait for the traditional 2018 model season and will make the new Equinox available for purchase in early 2017.
