The 2022 Chevy Equinox introduces a full model refresh for the crossover, ushering in updates for the exterior, interior, and powertrain. Now, the 2022 Chevy Equinox has received a $200 price increase.
Although the MSRP for the 2022 Chevy Equinox remains unchanged, the crossover’s destination freight charge, or DFC, is now set at $1,395, up $200 from the previous DFC of $1,195. As a result, all trim levels and configurations of the 2022 Chevy Equinox are effectively $200 more expensive than before this latest DFC price increase.
With the updated DFC price, the least-expensive 2022 Chevy Equinox trim level, specifically the Equinox LS with front-wheel drive, is priced at $27,195. Meanwhile, the most-expensive 2022 Chevy Equinox, specifically the Premier with all-wheel drive, is priced at $33,995.

As GM Authority covered previously, the 2022 Chevy Equinox is once again available to order with heated and ventilated seats. These comfort features were previously under constraint since March 13th production as a result of the ongoing global microchip shortage, but this particular constraint was lifted as of May 1st production.
The 2022 Chevy Equinox features a single powerplant option, sourcing motivations from the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX gasoline engine. Output is rated at 170 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 203 pound-feet of torque at 2,000 rpm. Handling the cog swaps is the GM six-speed automatic transmission. Providing the bones is the GM D2 platform, while production for the North American market takes place at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant and GM San Luis Potosí plant, both of which are located in Mexico. Equinox production ended at the GM CAMI plant in Canada in April, 2022.
Looking ahead, production of the 2023 Chevy Equinox is set to kick off in August, as GM Authority exclusively reported previously. Dealers will no longer be able to place new sold orders for the 2022 Chevy Equinox as of June 23rd.
