2022 Chevrolet Equinox MODEL OVERVIEW

Chevrolet's compact SUV makes a trip to the plastic surgeon for the 2022 model year. Along with more attractive styling, the 2022 Equinox also includes updates to available trims and engines.

The current-generation Equinox was introduced for the 2018 model year, so the updated 2022 model marks the beginning of the second half of its lifecycle before a fully redesigned version is released.

What's New

  • RS trim with sporty aesthetics joins the lineup
  • Revised front and rear styling
  • A 2.0-liter turbo-four rejoins the engine lineup above the standard 1.5T powerplant

Performance and Fuel Economy

Although the Equinox dropped its 2.0-liter turbo-four optional engine for 2021, it makes a triumphant return for the 2022 model year. Base models still utilize a 1.5-liter turbo I-4 that developed 170 hp and 203 lb-ft of torque on the 2021 model. In our testing, an Equinox 1.5T hit 60 mph in 8.7 seconds. The smaller turbo-four works with a six-speed automatic, and fuel economy for 2020 measured 25-26/30-31 mpg city/highway. The 1.5T will be offered with FWD or AWD, and we expect the 2.0T to have the same options, as well.

Opting for the larger-displacement four-cylinder engine should yield 227 hp and 258 lb-ft if the 2.0-liter generates the same output as it does in the 2021 Blazer 2.0T. Acceleration times drop to the mid-6.0-second range. In place of the six-speed auto, the stronger turbo-four employs the help of a nine-speed automatic for shifting duties. Last time it was offered, the 2.0-liter Equinox returned 22/28-29 mpg depending on drive type. 

The New 2022 Chevrolet Equinox RS

The RS trim level is offered for the first time on Equinox for 2022. As is the case with most RS-badged Chevrolets, the 2022 Equinox RS features aesthetic touches but no performance benefits. For the Equinox, that means a gloss black grille, 19-inch black wheels, black exterior badging, an RS shift knob, and black upholstery with red contrast stitching.
