The refreshed 2022 Chevy Equinox is set to add four new options to the crossover’s exterior paint palette.
- 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.
