2022 Chevy Equinox To Get Four New Paint Colors24
The refreshed 2022 Chevy Equinox is set to add four new options to the crossover’s exterior paint palette.
The new colors set for introduction with the refreshed 2022 Chevy Equinox include the following (relevant RPO codes listed in parentheses):
- Blue Glow Metallic (GHT)
- Seaglass Blue Metallic (GHZ)
- Cherry Red Tintcoat (GSK)
- Iron Gray Metallic (GIV)
The 2022 Chevy Equinox ushers in a mid-cycle refresh for the nameplate originally set to debut for the 2021 model year. However, due to complications stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic, the model refresh was pushed back to the 2022 model year.
In addition to new exterior colors options, the 2022 Chevy Equinox will also introduce a few exterior styling changes, such as a revised front grille and lower fascia, both of which will pair with new, restyled headlamps that include long, thin housings that pull back into the fenders, continuing the central styling line in the grille. The front will also sport new fog lamps, while the rear end will include a revised rear bumper and redesigned tail lights. The body style will continue on as a compact four-door crossover utility vehicle.
Notably, the 2022 Chevy Equinox will continue to offer the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX gasoline engine, believed to be the exclusive powerplant option. General Motors originally planned to introduce the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY gasoline engine to the lineup as a replacement for the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LTG, the latter of which was discontinued during the 2021 model year. Now, however, those plans have changed, and the LYX will remain the lone engine option.
For reference, the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX is rated at 170 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 203 pound-feet of torque at 2,000 rpm. Under the skin, the 2022 Chevy Equinox will continue to ride on the GM D2 platform.

I currently lease a 2018 Equinox and the lease is coming up. I was thinking about replacing it with this 2022 version.
But with the new Hyundai Tucson and already on the market Nissan Rogue, I don’t know how the 2022 equinox can compete.
How come they don’t bring the pretty brown color that the Equinox had in 2010 thru 2012?
The Equinox has been a great vehicle for us and we were looking forward to replace our current 2011 with a 2022 but because of the lack of a robust power plant we will have to look at a different vehicle. We truly enjoyed the 3.6 L we currently have and its capability to merge on even the shortest of on ramps.
Blazer would fit the bill for you. You can get it with the newest 3.6 gen 3 V6. And its closest in size to your 2011 if you like the slightly larger truck.
We have a 2017 Equinox and love it. Looking at the 2019 or newer Equinox versions, the front buckets are substantially narrower and very uncomfortable. The vehicle is perfect size, great mpg, does everything we want,, why did GM cheapen the seats? Its forcing us to foreign now which I guess is why there are so many sold.
You should really test drive the 1.5L Turbo….We have a 2018 model and I think it has terrific get-up-and-go… My wife averages 31 combined mpg as well….
Nice looking vehicle to bad there is only 1 option for engine 1.5 for year 2022 deletion of 2.0 l engine bad choice gm going to loose lots of future customers with the equinox and also refresh 2022 GMC Terrain and I was one of them !
Don’t discount the turbo charged 1.5L before you drive it. You’ll be impressed. I’ve leased 5 equinoxes for work cars on 2 year leases and put about 40,000 on each in 2 yrs. I’ve had a 2012, 14, 16, 18 and now have a 2020. My 16 had the 6 but my 18 and 20 had the turbo 4 now standard for 2021/22. The 1.5 is quicker and more responsive than the 6 with better mpg’s too. Btw , never had to have any service on any of them except oil change.
There is no way a 1.5T is quicker than any 300 HP LFX Equinox. More responsive at the touch of the throttle perhaps but as soon as the twin cam V6 starts to rev it’s game over for the 1.5 which has a very narrow power band and is all packed up at 5,000 RPMs and short shifts to a higher gear at only 5500. The 0-60 times for as tested AWD Equinoxes is generally at 8.9-9 seconds and that is with one person and no A/C blaring. Factor in a warm Summer day and 2-3 people on board and the 1.5 will be quite strained driving on the highway. A 3.6 Nox is an easy 6.5 second vehicle.
Ditto on the Power Plant , I assume my trailering pkg on my Premier will be a no for trailering ? can They say Sorrento ! not going to a Bigger more expensive Blazer for power! Kia comes in at $43,000 now, with all the options of the Equinox at $42,000 in 2018. GM use your Head !! Look up my GM purchaces over the last 20 years 4 Caddilac’s 3 Chevy’s.
Yes totally agree I can’t see a 1.5 with 170 hp and 203 ft lbs of torque pull a small trailer eg : towing a set of sea doo with out any stuggles where the 2.0 l LTG did it with out any issues I driven a 2.0 l Terrain way better more power and performance just an all around better driving S u v with bigger engine 82 hp and 57 ft lbs of torque difference I think you will notice the difference and I did use regular fuel even though premium is recommended.
Gm sticking go-cart engine in everything across the board and charging full pop . There top of the line models and trims with small power outputs and charging and expecting people to buy these vehicle well gm just to let you know your buyers are educated in today day and age that why people buy import S u v like Toyota Kia Hyundai Honda Nissan and even Volkswagen.
Any word on when GM will get rid of the fish mouth grill?
I was going to buy a 2020 then put it off to the refresh. With both Chevy and GMC dropping the 2.0 turbo my next choice is the Hyundai Santa Fe calligraphy with a 2.5 Turbo
Yes same here was looking to buy a 2020 GMC Terrain Denali but decided to wait for the refresh but when I heard they dropping the 2.0 l I decide to look at other manufacturers and really had my heart set on a new 2022 Terrain denali now looking at import like the Hyundai Santa Fe with the 2.5 turbo Gm you doing a great job !
They put the new 2,0 in the chinese equionox why not in North America many loyal gm customers saying see ya I hope they watch these sites and think maybe not a good idea to do this especially when they said the bigger engine would be offered.
I hope you right hopefully gm sees and reads these post and listen to its gm customers
Glad they are offering more colors. I loved the color palette that it launched with. Unfortunately they just kept reducing the colors every year
Yes and also engine choices smaller and smaller every year !!
Customers: …putting a weaker engine/tranny in the new Equinox…why?
GM: Look!! Four new colors!
I don’t understand GM’s rationale on why they would get rid of the 2.0. I test drove the 1.5 the other day because I was sold on the fact that I wanted a Terrain, good size and looks. That 1.5 is absolutely unforgivably awful. I was really hoping the AT4 was going to use it. And since I can’t hop over to Chevy and get it with the Nox, then I suppose I’m looking elsewhere.
Welcome to the club I m wondering why gm would not put a 2.0! L engine in the terrain it’s all crazy and specially on the new refresh Terrain Denali for 2022 I thought GMC was professional grade !!!! What happen professional grade going to be garage grade !!!
