2023 Chevy Equinox Configurator Live13
The 2023 Chevy Equinox introduces a few changes and updates compared to the fully refreshed 2022 model year, and now, interested customers and fans can spec the crossover as they see fit with the official online configurator.
A total of four trim levels are available, listed from bottom to top as LS, LT, RS, and Premier. All four trim levels are equipped with front-wheel drive as standard, while all-wheel drive is optional for an extra $1,600. As GM Authority covered earlier this month, pricing for the 2023 Chevy Equinox starts at $27,995 for the entry-level LS with front-wheel drive, including $1,395 for the Destination Freight Charge (DFC). At the top of the list, the 2023 Chevy Equinox Premier with all-wheel drive starts at $34,795, including DFC.
One of the most important changes introduced with the 2023 Chevy Equinox is the debut of a new engine. Per GM Authority coverage published in June, the 2023 Chevy Equinox is equipped with the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LSD gasoline engine, which arrives as a replacement for the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX gasoline engine equipped previously. The new turbo 1.5L I4 LSD engine is rated at 175 horsepower at 5,800 rpm and 203 pound-feet of torque at 2,000 rpm, while the turbo 1.5L I4 LYX offered previously was rated at 170 horsepower at 5,600 rpm and 203 pound-feet of torque at 2,000 rpm. The new turbo 1.5L I4 LSD engine once again connects to the GM six-speed automatic transmission.
Further updates for the 2023 model year include a revised exterior paint list, with Silver Ice Metallic (paint code GAN), Seaglass Blue Metallic (paint code GHZ), and Cherry Red Tintcoat (paint code GSK) all deleted. The three outgoing colors are replaced by three new hues, including Sterling Gray Metallic (paint code GXD), Radiant Red Tintcoat (paint code GNT), and Harvest Bronze Metallic (paint code GXN).
Under the skin, the 2023 Chevy Equinox rides on the GM D2 platform. Production takes place at the GM San Luis Potosi plant and GM Ramos Arizpe plant, both of which are in Mexico.

This entire configurator going live stuff keeps me scratching my head. I’ve said it before, they came up with an article like this for the 2023 Malibu over a month ago. Yet you still can’t build a 2023 Malibu on the Chevy site. In fact, it’s now the only Chevy model that you can’t build for 2023. Same with Cadillac and the CT4/CT5. But you can build any Chevy/Cadillac SUV/CUV you want.
Just goes to show how little GM cares about sedans any more. They’ve had 2023 SUV/CUV’s up for 2 months now in some cases. So sad how they just don’t care and how they feel it’s ok to let so many customers go to the import brands.
Still can’t build/price a Silverado 1500 on GM Family First site either.
The 23 Malibu is on the GM Family First site now.
Carl: What’s the family first site?
GM employee site
“Due to current supply-chain shortages, certain features shown have limited or late availability, or are no longer available. See the window label or dealer regarding the features on an individual vehicle.”
Oh yeah, configuring a car is so much fun now.
I may have to buy a 23 to replace my 19 before they go EV.
I’ve got a ’20 AWD LT and I love it but this electric push has got me thinking the same.
Carl and Paul: Although I’m a mix of liking the EV’s and still liking ICE, I know you are still preferring the ICE. It’s hard to say for sure what the last year of the ICE will be for the current Equinox, but I think you are onto the right idea here. But then if they still offer the ICE version for another 4 or 5 years, then you may be jumping too soon. Even though I’m good to go with the EV’s, it’s not going to be for everyone yet. In time yes, but not this moment yet.
We love our 19 Premier
I only clicked on because I assumed it was about the newest Equinox EV……..No longer any interest in gas…..Paul
Just an update. After bit****g about it enough, today the Cadillac and Chevrolet sites finally have the 2023 sedans to build. Not really a single thing has changed with the CT4 or CT5. However, the Malibu seems much different because they dropped the permier. Now it’s LS, RS, 1LT and 2LT. They all have the 1.5L and CVT which doesn’t bother me because I actually love it in my 2021. Happily, the 2LT (replaced the Premier) still has the Bose speaker system as standard, but not that stupid sunroof! Fantastic. The base MSRP went down a lot on the 2LT vs. Premier because they dropped the 2.0L with 9 speed and made the over-sized sunroof a stand alone option (the way it should be).
So now I have to decide if I’m going to order a 2023 2LT Malibu in the exact color combo I want or the 2023 Bolt EV 2LT. I really want to go EV again, but am fighting my demons about the lack of interior color choice on the Bolt along with being forced to have the ugly black plastic around the bottom and wheels. Boy I wish I could order a Malibu EV.
