2023 Chevy Equinox To Get E-Boost Braking System21
The 2023 Chevy Equinox will come equipped with a new electro-hydraulic braking system, GM Authority has learned.
The front and rear brakes with e-boost (RPO code JE0) will come as standard equipment on all 2023 Chevy Equinox trim levels. Exact details on the system are not yet available, but we expect it to be similar to the electro-hydraulic braking system introduced on the 2019 Cadillac XT4.
As some GM Authority readers may recall, the Cadillac XT4 was the luxury automaker’s first vehicle to feature e-assist brakes. At the time, Cadillac said the system “supplants the traditional vacuum-assisted power braking system with an electro-hydraulic system that enhances fuel economy and takes up less space under the hood.” Electro-hydraulic brakes use an electronic actuator that eliminates the need to pull vacuum from the engine/manifold, making them more efficient whilst also reducing the number of vacuum lines under the hood. A brake system like this is also future-proof, as it is capable of functioning without the engine running and can therefore be parlayed into plug-in hybrid models.
As GM Authority covered previously, the 2023 Chevy Equinox will be equipped with the new turbocharged 1.5L I4 LSD gasoline engine. This powerplant will replace the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX gasoline engine. The 2023MY Equinox will also see the return of the Sport Edition and Midnight Edition cosmetic packages, which were previously dropped for the 2022 model year. Production of the compact crossover is set to commence on August 22nd, 2022. Pricing will be divulged closer to its official arrival at dealerships later this year.
Looking forward, GM will introduce the new battery-electric Chevy Equinox EV for the 2024 model year, which will be similar in size and ethos to the current model, but with a battery-electric Ultium Drive motor and Ultium battery pack.

Now it just needs an interior that doesn’t look like it is in a $10K car and from 15 years ago.
Time for an all new Equinox, the current generation is showing its age. 6 and 7 year product cycles are way too long. Hopefully, the next generation will be a little bit larger. 2010 to 2017 size was perfect, IMO. 2.0 horsepower without premium gas would be icing on the cake.
Exactly…the Equinox needs the current 2.0T that is in the Envision and the Blazer. My wife’s ’22 Blazer has the 2.0T/9spd and it doesn’t need the premium gas. She gets around 28mpg on the highway. That engine (which is underpowered for the Blazer IMO) would be perfect in the Equinox and Terrain…but what does GM know about its customers? The Equinox should be a fleet-only car.
How this comment has more downvotes than upvotes is beyond me. The Equinox interior is terrible in every way. Hard plastics, tacky “chrome” accents, rubber steering wheel buttons, large a-pillars. The whole thing was garbage when it came out. Luckily the Equinox EV looks like a far better approach but we’ll see.
Len: It’s rather simple. More people just don’t like or agree with what was said. I’m just not sure why they even put the stupid up/down thumbs on here. I could care less, but I really feel that some people just say things to try and get the up votes. Personally I keep it simple. If I feel the comment is good and/or true, I may give a thumbs up. If I find the comments to be trolling or just plain stupid/false, then I will give a thumbs down.
When it comes to others on here complaining about what they call a 15 year old interior or “terrible”, I just can’t understand how they can complain about that when there are so many (way too many) other brands out there with the same or worse interiors. IMO, some of the worst in the industry are Toyota and Honda, followed by Kia/Hyundai. Ford isn’t much better. So I find the complaints about the Chevy’s interiors to be lacking in fact if/when compared to the industry in the segment it’s in.
I have a 2021 Equinox. Chevy has upped the interior game, just don’t expect a Cadillac interior.
Or it’s just downvote trolls.
There’s a reason YouTube removed the downvote count feature.
We have a bunch of downvote trolls.
Best to spit on them & move on.
The Equinox is currently selling well, ahead of everyone in the segment but the RAV4 and CR-V. Have you actually cross-shopped it against those vehicles recently?
The RAV4 feels like even more of a pile of cheap and ugly hot garbage inside as the Equinox. It gets better mileage but sounds like a rock-tumbler doing it. Going in assuming the RAV4 was the obvious choice, my wife refused to even test drive it, once she sat in it.
As for the CR-V, the lower trims exist only in a theoretical sense. Dealers only order AWD EX-L and Touring models. Factoring in dealer markups and worse financing deals, it sells in real life for $10k more than the Equinox.
If it takes up less space under the hood, is it enough to make room for a bigger better engine lol?
LOL, GM will just put a bigger washer fluid reservoir in the new space.
Don’t you just like how many washer fluid reservoirs take the whole gallon bottle.
Which is small. European sedans usually take 1.5 gallons.
A new engine, new braking system, this is great but I thought MY2022 was supposed to be the mid-refresh. This is apparently a mid-mid-refresh.
It’s really too bad they dropped the diesel engine in the equinox/terrain. I’ve had my 2018 terrain diesel for a couple months now and average 47 mpg on the highway. With the crazy fuel prices I’m sure glad I got it!
It gets better mileage, but it cost more to begin with, requires DEF, more expensive fuel, more expensive oil, as well as additional maintenance.
I’m not sure you’re saving any money at all.
On the plus side you get better range and a lot of torque.
DEF isn’t that expensive. It’s $3.50 a gallon at a truck stop and last for over 1,000 miles.
Math is hard for Americans.
Oil changes are only $10 more if you DIY it which anyone that owns a Diesel should be doing since quick lube shops are grossly incompetent.
If you’re trying to talk down to me about the Diesel, you’re wasting your time.
I owned a 2018 Cruze Diesel and I know what I’m talking about.
No, DEF wasn’t that expensive, but it was annoying and something you need to think about. Especially since it doesn’t actually tell you what is in the tank unless it’s low. A full tank lasted less than an oil change.
That engine also needed oil that wasn’t that easy to find. Dexos 2 isn’t the same as Dexos 1 or just some Mobil 1 from Walmart.
But that’s not really my point, just part of it. Yes it got better mileage, but the fuel costs more as well.
And I had problems with sensors and the particulate filter sensor that you wouldn’t have in a normal car. In fact, I had that car in to be fixed probably 5 times over 2 years. One time it was something they claimed they couldn’t actually find, and it went away magically on its own. Reassuring.
The final act was a recall so the computer was more likely to trigger a particulate error. Something I’d just had fixed under warranty and had to wait until “our diesel guy” could look at it.
No, I got rid of it and I’m glad. GM doesn’t make the car anymore, or even own the factory that made that engine.
Equinox definitely needs a bigger engine the 2.0 l LSY is a perfect fit and u don’t need premium fuel the LYX engine and now the LSD engine with 5 more hp is not going to set the world on fire hopefully next equinox model generation for 2024 would have a better engine choice so the consumer will have some options!!!!
