The 2022 Chevy Equinox is the fifth model year for the current third-gen crossover, introducing a full model refresh. Now, however, GM Authority has learned that the 2022 Chevy Equinox is no longer available to order with one specific paint option.
According to GM Authority sources, the 2022 Chevy Equinox can no longer be ordered in Cherry Red Tintcoat paint, tagged with paint code GSK. Cherry Red Tintcoat will be unavailable for the remainder of the 2022 model year.

Previously, Cherry Red Tintcoat was offered on all 2022 Chevy Equinox trim levels with the exception of the LS, and could be had in conjunction with the Medium Ash Gray interior colorway and Jet Black interior colorway, but not the Jet Black with Maple Sugar interior colorway. Pricing for the Cherry Red Tintcoat paint was set at $495.

Making its debut at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show, the refreshed 2022 Chevy Equinox introduces a wealth of changes for the nameplate, with updates to the exterior styling, interior, and powertrain. As for the greasy bits, the refreshed 2022 Chevy Equinox is available with a single engine option, specifically the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX gasoline engine, rated at 170 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 203 pound-feet of torque between 2,000 and 4,000 rpm. Under the body panels, the Equinox rides on the GM D2 platform, with production for the North American market taking place at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant and the GM San Luis Potosí plant in Mexico, as well as the GM CAMI plant in Canada.
