This year, the Chevy Equinox is updated with slim LED headlights and a restyled front end that includes a new grille design. The front and rear bumpers get restyled, too. A new sporty RS trim level comes with black exterior trim, dark 19-inch wheels, a unique shift knob, and black seats with red stitching. The top-line Premier trim gets dressed up with stitched leather dash panels. The folks at the Chevrolet dealership near Wilkesboro explained that these changes were originally meant to be introduced in last year's model but were delayed due to the pandemic.

The 2022 Chevrolet Equinox impresses automotive reviewers. U.S. News & World Report writes:

"The Equinox has a roomy five-seat interior, a user-friendly infotainment system, and a decent array of standard safety features. It's comfortable to drive on less-than-perfect pavement, and it's fairly easy to maneuver around town."

Buyers can get the 2022 Chevy Equinox in one of four trim levels, listed as LS, LT, RS and Premier. All trims are motivated by a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine generating 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque, paired to a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is standard across the lineup, and all-wheel drive is optional. This powerplant utilizes a fuel-saving start-stop system that cuts power to the engine when the Equinox is idling (such as when stopped at a traffic light). For the first time, drivers can disable the system by pressing a button.
