Overview

What's New in the 2022 Chevrolet Equinox?

Which Equinox is the Best?

Base L and LS Equinox models may have enticing prices compared to rivals, but we think you'll be happier in an LT, RS, or Premier. The 1.5-liter turbo engine is adequate but if you want notably more power or need to tow, get the upgraded 2.0-liter engine, then add AWD. Find a Chevrolet Equinox for sale

How Much Does a 2022 Chevrolet Equinox Cost?

The 2022 Chevy Equinox is available in five trims: L, LS, LT, RS and Premier. Based on the 2020 model trim levels: The L (est. $24,000, plus destination charge) comes with a 1.5-liter turbo engine, keyless open and push-button start, MyLink infotainment system with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, four USB ports, 17-in wheels and the Teen Driver system that can set parameters and relay information on driving habits. Other highlights are the subscription-based OnStar 4G LTE connectivity with Wi-Fi. Safety features include forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist. The LS (est. around $27,000) includes a few other features like a compact spare tire and compass but more importantly opens the door for options. Among them are AWD. More recommendable is the LT (est. around $28,000). It should include an 8-way power driver's seat, tinted windows, high-intensity headlights, 4.2-in color driver information screen and SiriusXM satellite radio. The LT trim also is available with the higher-powered engine and options like power tailgate, heated front seats and dual-zone climate control. The new RS (est. $30,000) includes gloss black grille, black bowtie and other blacked-out badging, 19-in darkened wheels, black interior with red stitching and RS shift knob. The Premier (est. around $32,000) is highlighted by blind spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert, hands-free power lift gate with projection logo, leather interior with French stitching, 8-in touchscreen with high-def rearview camera, dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, fog lights, 18-in wheels, chrome exterior accents, heated exterior mirrors, LED headlights and tail lights and rear parking sensors. Adaptive cruise control, which comes standard on the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4 and Subaru Forester, is now optional on more trims than past Equinox models. A new high-end option for 2022 is Automatic Parking Assist, which can help with parallel parking.

Competition

2022 Chevrolet Equinox vs the competition

2022 Honda CR-V — The Honda CR-V was one of the first compact crossovers and remains a benchmark. This Honda has more cargo room than the Equinox, a sterling record of reliability and resale value and a fantastic new hybrid model that earns up to 40 mpg. 2022 Toyota RAV4 – The RAV4 is another leader among small SUVs and a creator of this segment. Toyota's small crossover also has more cargo space than the Equinox and a broader lineup of models that range from the RAV4 Prime plug-in hybrid to a TRD Off-Road version. 2022 Subaru Forester – The Subaru Forester has AWD standard, impressive ground clearance, a standard suite of active safety features and some of the highest resale values in the segment. 2022 Kia Sportage — Although it has less cargo room than some competitors, the Sportage appeals with value pricing, solid driving manners, tons of content and Kia's 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty. Used Cadillac XT5 — This upscale Cadillac cousin to the Equinox debuted in 2017 and brings a standard V6, more refinement and added luxury. A model that's a few years old can be had for about the same price or less than a new Equinox.
