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, it doesn’t look like any units of the 2022 Equinox in the Cherry Red are on dealer lots just yet. As we typically note, availability varies by dealer, so check with yours for complete details.
Prospective buyers may be interested to know that the 2022 Chevy Equinox received 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 are highlighted by new front and rear ends, small revisions to the cabin, the deletion of the base L trim level, the addition of a new RS trim level, new wheel options, a defeat switch for the engine auto stop-start feature.
Affected models include the Silverado, Blazer and Trailblazer, among others.
