Official pricing for the updated 2022 Chevy Equinox crossover has been revealed.
The 2022 Chevy Equinox will start at $26,995 in the United States including a $1,195 destination charge, according to a dealership order guide that was viewed by CarsDirect. This represents a price increase of $2,000 over the 2021 Equinox, although the reason for the price difference can be tied to the fact that the previous entry-level L trim has been discontinued for the 2022 model year. Going forward, the LS will serve as the entry-level trim, and GM has also taken $600 off of the base price of the LS for 2022, as the 2021 model-year Equinox LS was priced from $27,595.
As for the rest of the lineup, the LT will be priced from $28,095, while the range-topping Equinox Premier will start at $32,195. All-wheel drive is available across the entire trim level lineup and will add $1,600 to the price of the crossover.

The refreshed Chevy Equinox was originally set to arrive for the 2021 model year, but complications stemming from the COVID-19 pandemic forced GM to push back the facelifted model’s arrival to the 2022 model year. In addition to the revised exterior styling, the 2022 Chevy Equinox will also introduce a new RS trim level, which will slot in above the LT and below the Premier in vehicle’s trim level cadence. The RS trim level features a gloss black grille, 19-inch Dark Android wheels, black badging and bow ties, black side rails, an RS shift knob, and black interior upholstery with contrasting red stitching.
Engine options for the 2022 Chevy Equinox will be limited to the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX gasoline engine, which produces 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque. There was consideration to reintroduce a more powerful engine option for the 2022 model year, which might have ended up being the turbocharged 2.0L I4 LSY, but that plan has been scrapped, as GM Authority reported previously.
