The 2022 Chevy Equinox is the fifth model year of the third-generation crossover nameplate, introducing a mid-cycle enhancement, otherwise known as a model refresh. Now, GM Authority has learned that the 2022 Chevy Equinox Premier will soon offer a new Redline Edition package.
The new Redline Edition package for the 2022 Chevy Equinox Premier will be tagged with RPO code WBL, and will be priced at $895. The package will include a number of styling enhancements for the crossover, including:
- Front and rear fascias from the Equinox RS
- Black grille from the Equinox RS
- Premier lighting (LED headlamps and taillamps, Premier-exclusive front fog lamps)
- Black / Red badging
- Black Bow Ties
- Black mirror caps with Red stripe
- 19-inch Black wheels with Red stripe
Customers will be able to order the new 2022 Chevy Equinox Premier Redline Edition package in the first week of April. Production is slated to kick off in May.
General Motors previously unveiled a Redline Edition for the Chevy Equinox with the introduction of the 2018 model year, dropping cover among no less than nine Redline Edition models at the 2017 Chicago Auto Show. Similar to the 2022 model year iteration, the 2019 Chevy Equinox Redline Edition included a selection of aesthetic enhancements over the standard model, such as red hash marks, black badging with a red outline, a blacked-out grille, and a black Chevrolet Bow Tie.
That said, the 2022 Chevy Equinox subsequently deleted three appearance packages that were previously offered with the pre-update model. In addition to the Redline Edition, these include the Midnight Edition and Sport Edition.
Now, however, the Redline Edition is set to make its return very soon.
As a reminder, the refreshed 2022 Chevy Equinox offers just one powertrain, namely the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX gasoline engine, rated at 170 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 203 pound-feet of torque at 2,000 rpm. Under the body panels is the GM D2 platform, while production for the North American market takes place at the GM CAMI plant in Canada and GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico
