Model Preview

The 2023 Chevrolet Equinox is expected to be a carryover from the 2022 Equinox ahead of a new model for 2024.

The 2022 Equinox received a modest facelift that was originally scheduled for the 2021 model year but was delayed because of shutdowns related to the Covid-19 pandemic and the ongoing global microchip shortage. Changes to the Equinox were mostly to the grille and exterior lighting. An RS model joined the lineup as a sportier-looking Equinox, with a different front-end design than the rest of the models, as well as black exterior trim, 19-inch wheels, and black upholstery with red accents.

All models now use a 170-horsepower, turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine with a six-speed automatic transmission. The previous turbodiesel and 2.0-liter turbo engines were dropped before the 2022 facelift. Front-wheel drive is standard, while all-wheel drive is optional.

The 2022 Equinox is available in four trim levels: LS, LT, RS, and Premier. Expect the 2023 model to continue with that lineup.

The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave the Chevy Equinox Good marks, its highest rating, in most categories. But in a side-impact test that used a barrier modeled after another SUV hitting the vehicle, the Equinox scored Marginal, one higher than the lowest score. It also missed out on a Top Safety Pick rating as many of its rivals earned.

However, the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration awarded the 2022 Equinox its highest rating, five stars, in overall testing. That should continue for the structurally unchanged 2023 model.

A full redesign for the Equinox is expected for the 2024 model. In January, Chevrolet announced an all-electric version of the next-generation Equinox would be available in fall 2023. The Equinox EV will be based on the technology used in the Cadillac Lyriq and GMC Hummer EV, although an estimated range was not released.

Pricing & Release Date

Prices for the 2023 Equinox are unlikely to rise from the 2022 model, which starts from $26,995 and goes up to $32,145.

The 2023 Equinox should be available in summer 2022.

The Chevrolet Equinox competes against such vehicles as the Mazda CX-5, Toyota RAV4, and the Honda CR-V.
