2023 Chevy Equinox To Lose These Three Paint Colors14
The 2023 Chevy Equinox follows hot on the heels of a mid-cycle refresh introduced for the 2022 model year, introducing several important updates and changes. Now, GM Authority has learned that this includes a new exterior paint lineup.
According to GM Authority sources, the 2023 Chevy Equinox will drop three exterior paint options from the lineup, including (relevant paint codes listed in parentheses):
- Silver Ice Metallic (GAN)
- Seaglass Blue Metallic (GHZ)
- Cherry Red Tintcoat (GSK)
Previously, Silver Ice Metallic was offered on all trim levels of the 2022 Chevy Equinox for no extra charge. Seaglass Blue Metallic was available on LT, RS, and Premier trim levels without an extra charge, but not offered on LS. Finally, Cherry Red Tintcoat was offered on LT, RS, and Premier trim levels for an extra $495, but was not offered on LS.
Going forward, these three outgoing colors will be replaced by three new hues with the debut of the 2023 Chevy Equinox, including:
- Sterling Gray Metallic (GXD)
- Radian Red Tintcoat (GNT)
- Harvest Bronze Metallic (GXN)
As GM Authority was the first to report, the 2023 Chevy Equinox will also introduce a new powerplant, namely the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LSD gasoline engine, which will replace the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX gasoline engine equipped prior. Peak output from the new 1.5L I4 LSD engine will be similar to that of the 1.5L I4 LYX engine, with the former rated at 175 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque, as compared to the latter’s 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque. As before, the 1.5L I4 LSD engine will connect to the GM six-speed automatic transmission. Under the skin, the 2023 Chevy Equinox will once again ride on the GM D2 platform.
Production of the 2023 Chevy Equinox is set to get underway on August 22nd at the GM San Luis Potosí plant and GM Ramos Arizpe plant, both of which are in Mexico.

Seaglass Blue Metallic (GHZ) … was the most beautiful colour of GM last years..
however now, black, black, black, black, grey, silver, grey, grey., white, grey, red, black black
— if that Seaglass was on lots and the EV I wouldn’t be typing this but begging a dealer to sell me the last one.
Cherry red tintcoat was my favorite. Just don’t start painting the them with that non-metallic battleship gray that I see on foreign cars! It’s plain ugly and reminds me of clear-coated gray primer.
Gm getting rid of no charge colours because every body wants to be safe with conservative colour your every day same boring colour how about changing your boring engine choice only 1 that is the under power 1.5 no wants for a 3500 lbs vehicle and give the consumer the 2.0 l which belongs in the equinox then gm will be back in the game again!!
In my wife’s 2019 Equinox Premier, the 1.5 and 2.0 were available. She got the 1.5T front wheel drive and it’s fine. Got 30 mpg on the highway, loaded with luggage. It ran 70-80 mph all afternoon through the Smokey’s foothills with no issues. It fits in the garage, was reasonably priced and looks good. I would not hesitate to buy it again!
mmm, that Harvest Bronze intrigues me-
Where is the Electric version. No body wants to pay for fuel anymore! Is anybody listening at GM?
Nobody I know wants an EV!
Check to see the environmental impact these batteries will cause fossil fuel beats that hands down, in the years to come
Dammit they always get good ones only to hurry and drop them So it goes for gm as usual.
Lease on my Metallic Red 2020 ending shortly. Was looking forward to ordering my 2023 in seagrass!
Seaglass was the only color I’m interested in… my dealer actually promised me a 2023 in seaglass… so do I get my deposit back now do I can go see if Ford makes a seaglass edge? Y’all suck! Your new colors suck too!
I have a 2022 Chevy equinox premier with Seaglass Blue Metailic and love it very easy to keep clean and being one of few is a stand out.
The Equinox designers need to add other interior colors like light gray and beige. Black is too hot in the southern states.
