Vehicle Preview: 2022 Chevrolet Equinox
The ever-venerable Chevrolet Equinox is getting a makeover that puts the emphasis on its sportier characteristics. Nowhere is that quality highlighted more clearly than with the first-ever Equinox RS, which brings the popular sport-minded trim to the best-selling SUV in the Chevrolet lineup.
One of the leading changes to the 2022 Chevrolet Equinox is a new face that is more refined yet more aggressive. Running through the face of the Equinox is a dual grille bar, anchored in the center by the Chevy bowtie and weighted on both sides by a sharp accent piece that perfectly cradles the new, thin LED headlights. The streamlined new grille and muscular proportions are the highlight of the new look of the Equinox, pairing perfectly with a redesigned front fascia that puts a bold face forward.
The all-new Chevrolet Equinox RS
Following the lead of popular SUVs like the Chevrolet Blazer, Trailblazer and Traverse, the refreshed Chevrolet Equinox adds the sporty styling of the RS trim for 2022. The exciting new grille design of the Equinox gets even bolder with the RS, blacking out the bowtie and coloring the grille bar Dark Android — a hue that matches the 19-inch wheels unique to the RS. Coupled with the gloss black mesh-style grille design, that exciting new face looks even fiercer on the Equinox RS.
Inside, the sense of sportiness continues with supple black upholstery punctuated by red stitching. An exclusive RS shift knob ensures that you feel empowered every time you put the 2022 Chevrolet Equinox RS into drive, whether you’re taking it out for a pleasure cruise or setting off on a new adventure.
Upscale updates for the Equinox Premier
The Equinox Premier remains the top choice if you love luxury, and several tasteful updates make it even more polished for the 2022 model year. Its gloss black grille with shiny chrome inserts commands the interest of passersby, creating opportunities for longing looks whenever you ride past. A chrome accent in the lower front fascia creates the sense of connection with the grille and symmetry with the LED headlights, giving the Equinox Premier a symmetrical, artistic aesthetic. Building on its natural curb appeal are 19-inch machine faced wheels that give additional dimension to the overall look.
The elevated cabin of the Equinox Premier adds French stitching that serves to remind you of the craftsmanship at hand, and a high gloss black finish to the center console calls attention to the clean, polished layout.
With the 2022 Equinox, Chevrolet continues to build its standard safety arsenal to give its customers more confidence where they need it most. The updated Equinox gets a range of standard driver-assistive safety features like Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Following Distance Indicator and Automatic Emergency Braking. Available safety features are also robust, including features like Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert, camera-based adaptive cruise control and the HD Surround Vision system.
The new 2022 Chevrolet Equinox will arrive at dealerships nationwide next year.
