The online configurator tool for the updated 2022 Chevy Equinox compact crossover has gone live on the automaker’s website.
The configurator tool allows users to view the different available trim levels for the 2022 Chevy Equinox, select their preferred exterior and interior trim colors and apply different available options including equipment packages, wheels and dealer-installed accessories.
We used the tool to create our own 2022 Chevy Equinox. For our example car, we selected the sporty new RS trim level, which adds a unique front grille treatment/fascia, black exterior accents, black Equinox badges and black-painted 19-inch wheels. The interior also gets some sport-inspired enhancements, including contrasting red stitching and an RS-branded shift knob with a stitched leather shift boot.
Our example Equinox RS also has the Iridescent Pearl Tricoat exterior color, a $995 option, as well as the available RS Leather Package, which costs $1,580 to equip. Adding the RS Leather Package also requires customers to order the $895 Infotainment Package and $695 Advanced Safety Package, however, adding $3,125 to the price tag.
The 2022 Chevy Equinox comes standard with a turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX four-cylinder, which produces 170 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 203 pound-feet of torque at 2,000 rpm. Output is routed through a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel-drive is standard, while all-wheel-drive can be added to any trim level for a price premium of $1,600. In addition to the RS trim level, the compact crossover is also available to order in the entry-level LS, mid-grade LT and range-topping Premier trims.
Just as with the 2021 model year Chevy Equinox, the mid-cycle enhancement 2022MY Equinox will be produced at the GM CAMI plant in Ingersoll, Ontario, as well as the GM San Luis Potisi Assembly and GM Ramos Arizpe Assembly plants in Mexico.
