Overview

What's New

The 2022 Chevrolet Equinox wears revised styling at the front and rear, plus updated interior finishes and wireless phone integration. An automated parking system is available for the first time. The new RS model offers sportier exterior trim, while the entry-level L has been discontinued. This year marks the first significant refresh of the current Equinox SUV since its 2018 introduction.

Choosing Your Chevrolet Equinox

The Equinox crossover now comes in four trim levels: LS, LT, RS, and Premier. Pricing starts at $26,995 and goes to $32,195 for the fully-loaded Premier.

Engine Choices

Once again, every Equinox comes with a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. The engine delivers 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque to the front wheels. All-wheel drive is available on all models for $1,600.

The Equinox is EPA-rated at 26 miles per gallon city, 31 mpg highway, and 28 combined. With AWD, estimates ease to 26/30/27 mpg (city/highway/combined).

Passenger and Cargo Capacity

The Equinox is a compact crossover with ample room for five. Cargo space is less impressive at 29.9 cubic feet behind the rear seat, or 63.9 cubic feet with it folded. These figures are average for this segment.

Safety Features

Every Equinox comes equipped with lane-keeping assist, automatic high beams, following distance monitor, and automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection.

The Driver Confidence II Package for the LS ($395) adds rear parking sensors and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. The package includes front parking sensor on the LT — and comes bundled with other items in the $1,795 Confidence and Convenience Package. These safety features are standard on the RS and Premier.

The Advanced Safety Package ($650) for the LT and RS contains adaptive cruise control, a surround-view camera, and turn signal indicators in the sideview mirrors. As for the Premier, the mirror indicators are standard, and the other features are available in the expansive Confidence and Convenience II Package, along with an automated parking system.

Connectivity

The standard infotainment setup includes a 7-inch touchscreen, six speakers, three USB ports, satellite radio, and wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility. The $895 Infotainment Package for the LT and RS add navigation, a fourth USB port, an 8-inch touchscreen, and a heated steering wheel.

CarsDirect Tip

Every Equinox model is reasonably priced for what you get. The LT is the best overall fit for family duty, although the Premier's nicer interior makes it nearly as worthy.

Refreshed and ready. Now in its fourth year, the current-generation Equinox receives an all-important mid-cycle refresh. Gone is the second engine choice as well as the base L trim, while an RS model jumps in. Equipment changes reflect the usual shuffling.

On the style side, Equinox avoids some of the style line and body sculpting idiosyncrasies of its competitors to deliver a more subdued expression. Calm lines and inoffensive curves mark its exterior. Then again, nothing is polarizing about it. Then again, there is little of the "wow factor" present.

Inside, the cabin offers room for five but is especially comfortable for four tall adults. It is big on head and legroom, although the previously offered sliding second-row seat is gone. The look of the interior is as sedate as the exterior, but dressier in the Premier trim with its natty stitched leather across the dash panels.

Strong on safety. Both the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) gives the Equinox strong crash testing scores. Helping the Equinox gain the IIHS' attention were the headlights, which are better on the upper trims.

Chevrolet also imbues the Equinox with a healthy roster of driver-assist technologies. Among the standard items are automatic high-beam headlights, lane-keeping assist and lane departure warning, and automatic emergency braking. Chevrolet also offers blind-spot monitoring, adaptive cruise control, front and rear parking sensors, and a surround-view camera system.

Advanced tech features. It's the little things that are a big deal with some drivers. Cord separation is one such matter. Specifically, wireless Apple CarPlay and wireless Android Auto. Thus, no cord is needed to make a connection and that's just convienent. A 7-inch touch-screen display is also standard; Amazon Alexa capability is included as well. A 6-speaker audio system, Bluetooth, a Wi-Fi hotspot, and two USB ports are also standard.

Move up through the trim range and the Equinox comes with an 8-inch touch-screen display, although that one is still smaller than the 10.25-inch screen that is increasingly common today. Chevrolet also offers a 110-volt outlet, an additional USB port, and a Bose 7-speaker audio system.

Chevrolet's infotainment interface is one of the easiest to use in the segment. It comes with navigation on some trims.

One powertrain choice. It was not too long ago when Equinox offered three engine choices, an uncommonly generous number of choices in a segment where one engine is common. First, Chevrolet dropped the optional turbo-diesel. Next, it discontinued the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder gas engine. What's left is a 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine with 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of twist. Power routes to the front or all four wheels utilizing a 6-speed automatic transmission and that is two fewer cogs than what competitors such as the Ford Escape offer. The Equinox has a 1,500-pound tow rating.

Though smaller and less powerful than the 2.0-liter engine, the little turbo offers more overall power than a few competing models such as the Nissan Rogue. Still, the cancellation of the other two engine choices supplies little differentiation in a crowded segment, especially with the diesel gone.

We found the Equinox offers a composed ride and tame handling. Models equipped with the larger wheels will see a decrease in steering feedback, but like all trims, it swallows bumps with ease.

Final thoughts. Along with the Trax and Trailblazer, the Equinox is one of three small crossover utility vehicles offered by Chevrolet. Of the three, it offers the roomiest interior and best cargo space. It also is competitively priced, with a well-equipped model retailing for about $30,000. That makes for one of the best values in its class.
