The 2022 Chevy Equinox slides in as the fifth model year for the third-generation crossover, debuting a mid-cycle enhancement (also known as a model refresh) that includes a variety of changes and updates. Now, as GM Authority exclusively reported in March, the Redline Edition is once again available for the Chevy Equinox.
As covered previously, the 2022 Chevy Equinox deleted three appearance packages previously offered for the pre-update model, including the Midnight Edition, Sport Edition, and the Redline Edition. Now, however, the Redline Edition has returned.
The Redline Edition package for the 2022 Chevy Equinox is tagged with RPO code WBL, and includes the following content (relevant RPO codes listed in parentheses):
- 19-inch Black wheels with Red accents and Black center caps (RZA)
- 19-inch all-season blackwall tires (RR0)
- Front and rear Black bow tie emblems (CG6)
- Redline decals (VUP)
- Black Equinox badges with Red outline
- Redline-specific Black grille
- Black window surround
The 2022 Chevy Equinox Redline Edition is only available for the Premier trim level. The package requires the Jet Black interior color (RPO code HX1). The package is also available in conjunction with one of the following exterior colors:
- Iridescent Pearl Tricoat (G1W)
- Silver Ice Metallic (GAN)
- Mosaic Black Metallic (GB8)
- Iron Gray Metallic (GIV)
To note, the 2022 Chevy Equinox Redline Edition is not available in conjunction with the Confidence & Convenience II Package (RPO code PCV), Infotainment II Package (RPO code Y3W), power sunroof (RPO code C3U), front and rear Black bow tie emblems (RPO code SFZ), or 19-inch aluminum wheels (RPO code SN7).
Pricing information for the package is currently unavailable.
As a reminder, the Chevy Equinox was originally slated to receive a refresh for the 2021 model year, but due to complications arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, the model refresh was instead pushed back to the 2022 model year.
Under the hood, the 2022 Chevy Equinox features the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX gasoline engine, rated at 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque. Providing the bones is the GM D2 platform, while production for the North America market takes place at the GM CAMI plant in Canada and GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico.
