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).
