The 2022 Chevy Equinox adds four new exterior colors to its palette: Cherry Red Tintcoat, Seaglass Blue Metallic, Blue Glow Metallic, and Iron Gray Metallic. Here’s our first look at the new Iron Gray hue.
Assigned color code GIV and touch-up paint code WA-333E, Iron Gray Metallic is a dark gray hue that expands the color portfolio of the 2022 Chevrolet Equinox, which is comprised of six neutral finishes, one pale blue, and one bold red color. Iron Gray Metallic is also one of two gray-silver hues available for the 2022 model year, along with Silver Ice Metallic – which is much lighter compared to the Iron Gray hue.

As of this writing, the 2022 Chevy Equinox can already be found at dealers, since the GM CAMI plant in Canada and the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico have been assembling and shipping the 2022 model to dealers since June 14th. However, Equinox production has since been idled at least until mid-October as a result of the ongoing microchip shortage. As such, models in the Iron Gray Metallic exterior color do not seem to be on dealer lots quite yet. Availability varies by dealer, so check with yours for complete details.
Prospective buyers may be interested to know that the 2022 Chevy Equinox receives a refresh, which was originally scheduled for the 2021 model year, but delayed due to complications caused by the Coronavirus pandemic. Updates to the freshened model include new front and rear end styling, small revisions to the cabin, the deletion of the base L trim level, new wheel options, a defeat switch for the engine auto stop-start feature, and more.
The chip-related production delays continue.
More delays for two of GM’s most popular crossovers.
