2020 Chevrolet Equinox Gets New Cayenne Orange Metallic Color3
The 2020 Chevrolet Equinox adds three new exterior colors to its palette: Midnight Blue Metallic, Chocolate Metallic, and Cayenne Orange Metallic. Here’s our first look at the new orange hue.
Assigned color code GLL and touch-up paint code WA-324E, Cayenne Orange Metallic stands out compared to the rest of the available color portfolio for the 2020 Chevrolet Equinox, which is comprised of eight neutral finishes and two bright colors. In fact, the only two bright exterior colors on the 2020 Equinox are Cayenne Orange Metallic and Cajun Red Metallic.
In fact, the Cayenne Orange color on the Equinox is identical to the same color offered on the 2020 Chevrolet Bolt EV.
The new Cayenne Orange Metallic color is not included in the base price of the 2020 Chevrolet Equinox. Instead, it costs an additional $395. It is available in conjunction with all interior color combinations, and is available with all trim levels except for base L models.
2020 Chevrolet Equinox Trim Levels:
- L (1SM)
- LS (1LS)
- LT (2FL, 1LT, 2LT)
- Premier (1LZ, 2LZ)
2020 Chevrolet Equinox Interior Color Combinations:
- Medium Ash Gray
- Jet Black
- Jet Black with Brandy
It’s worth noting that the addition of the Cayenne Orange Metallic hue is a common theme for the 2020 model year, as several Chevrolet vehicles have adopted the color – including the 2020 Bolt EV (see the 2020 Bolt in Cayenne Orange Metallic) as well as the 2020 Sonic (see the Sonic in Cayenne Orange Metallic).
As of this writing, the 2020 Chevrolet Equinox can already be found at dealers, since the GM CAMI plant in Canada and the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico have been assembling and shipping the 2020 model to dealers in the latter half of the 2019 calendar year. Models in the Orange Cayenne Metallic exterior color are already on dealer lots. Availability varies by dealer, so check with yours for complete details.

About ChevroletÂ Equinox
The Chevrolet EquinoxÂ is a compactÂ crossover. It slots aboveÂ theÂ ChevroletÂ TraxÂ and below theÂ Chevrolet Traverse. It will also be positioned belowÂ the rumored to beÂ theÂ future Chevrolet Blazer. The first-generation Equinox ran from theÂ 2005-2009 model years and was based on the first-generationÂ Theta platform.Â TheÂ second-generation EquinoxÂ was offeredÂ from the 2010-2017Â model years and was based on the Theta 2 platform. Both the first- and second-generation models were "tweeners", in that they straddled the compact and midsize CUV segments in size. TheÂ third-generation model was introduced for the 2018 model year. It rides on theÂ GM D2Â platformÂ shared with the second-generationÂ GMC Terrain,Â Chevrolet Cruze, andÂ Chevrolet VoltÂ and, unlike its two predecessors, isÂ positionedÂ squarely in the compact segment.
The third-generation, 2018 and newerÂ EquinoxÂ featuresÂ an all-new exterior andÂ interior, while beingÂ slightly smallerÂ insideÂ andÂ outÂ compared toÂ the outgoingÂ model. It also offersÂ an all-new engineÂ lineup andÂ an all-new lightweight architectureÂ that enables a weight savings of overÂ 400 pounds compared to the second-gen model. As a result, theÂ new EquinoxÂ gets better fuel economy while also delivering improvements in ride, handling, packaging, and safety.
TheÂ EquinoxÂ is assembled at the following GM plants:
- GM CAMI plantÂ in Ontario, Canada operated byÂ GM Canada
- GM Ramos plantÂ in Ramos Arizpe,Â Coahuila, Mexico operated byÂ GM Mexico
- Wuhan II plant in Hubei, China operated byÂ Shanghai-GM

Here is another, “EXTRA COST COLOR”. GM really doesn’t get it. People do not want to pay for, “EXTRA COST COLORS”.
Other manufacturers also charge extra for some colors, but not nearly as much as GM charges and not on as many colors. GM’s paint is nothing special, so this is really just price gouging for something as fundamental as paint.
“GM doesn’t get it”, yet sales and profits are up… and up… and up.
