The Chevy Equinox receives a mid-cycle refresh for the 2022 model year. The refresh was initially set to take place for the 2021 model year, but was delayed due to difficulties associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.
Arguably the biggest change to the 2022 Chevy Equinox are the front and rear ends, which align the popular Chevy CUV with the brand’s current design direction. On the topic of the exterior, the 2022 Chevy Equinox is offered in eight exterior colors, which we will profile here.
Below, we list the 2022 Chevy Equinox exterior colors. Note that six of the eight 2022 Equinox colors are included in the base price of the vehicle except for Iridescent Pearl Tricoat and Cherry Red Tintcoat, which are expected to carry an additional cost of $645 and $1,225, respectively.
