New 2022 Chevrolet Equinox For Sale & Interior Update – Although the 2022 Chevrolet Equinox is a popular compact crossover, it doesn’t necessarily make it compelling. The Chevy offers plenty of passenger space, an intuitive infotainment system, and excellent handling. The compact SUV from Chevrolet visits the plastic surgeon in 2022. The 2022 Equinox features a more appealing design and new trims and engines.
Chevrolet Equinox 2023 Configurations
The 2022 Equinox’s changes are highlighted by a refreshed front end. New headlights and a grille design are part of the makeover. The front and rear bumpers have been updated. New 2022 Chevrolet Equinox has also added a more sporty look to this model with dark 19-inch wheels and blacked-out exterior trim.
The Equinox’s cabin is well-designed and made from durable materials. The spacious interior is comfortable for both front- and back-seat passengers. There are enough luxury options to keep them happy on longer journeys. There are plenty of cupholders in the cabin, but most interior luxuries can be purchased as an option or standard on higher trim levels.
Safety System and Features
Every Equinox is equipped with lane-keeping assistance, automatic high beams, and the following distance monitor, as well as an automatic emergency brake with pedestrian detection. The Driver Confidence II Package (LS) ($395) adds rear parking sensors, blind-spot monitoring, and rear cross-traffic alert. Standard infotainment includes a 7-inch touchscreen, six speakers, and three USB ports. Satellite radio is also included. The $895 Infotainment package for the LT or RS adds navigation, a fourth USB port, and a heated steering column. Higher specs will have more features.
Equinox’s 2.0-liter turbo-four engine was dropped for 2021. However, it is making a comeback for the 2022 Chevrolet Equinox model year. The base models still use a 1.5-liter turbo I-4 engine that produced 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque in the 2021 model. Our Equinox 1.5T was able to reach 60 mph in just 8.7 seconds. The smaller turbo-four is paired with a six-speed automatic. 2020 fuel economy was 25-26/30/31 mpg highway/city. We expect the 1.5T to be available with either FWD or AWD. The 2.0T will also have these options.
