Here’s When 2024 Chevy Equinox Production Will End13
The 2024 Chevy Equinox will stand as the seventh model year of the Bow Tie’s compact crossover, as well as the last of the third-generation model. Now, GM Authority has learned when production of the 2024 Equinox will come to an end in order to make room for its replacement, the fourth-generation Equinox.
Production of the 2024 Equinox hasn’t even begun yet, and is set to kick off in May 2023. From there, 2024 Chevy Equinox production at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico is scheduled to wind down in April 2024 as the facility turns to electric vehicle assembly in the 2024 calendar year. Meanwhile, 2024 Equinox production at the second facility that assembles the model, the GM San Luis Potosi plant, is scheduled to end in October 2024.
It’s worth noting that since April 2022, the Equinox is no longer manufactured at the GM CAMI plant in Canada. Instead, this facility now exclusively builds BrightDrop vans.
As it currently stands, the Chevy Equinox was the third-best selling model in its segment, recording 212,072 deliveries during the 2022 calendar year. The Equinox is also GM’s third best-selling model in the U.S., coming in behind the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra ranges.

Meanwhile, the 2024 model is expected to largely be a carryover from the 2023 model, which includes a new engine. The turbocharged 1.5L I4 LSD gasoline engine, which is rated at 175 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque, replaced the older turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX gasoline engine, which was rated at 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque. The boosted four-pot is mated to GM’s six-speed automatic transmission across the board. Under the skin lies the GM D2 platform.
Pricing for the 2024 model has yet to be announced, but the 2023 model starts at $26,600 in the U.S.

Personally don’t get the appeal of the ICE nox. Had one as a rental on a business trip and it was under powered, loud, poor handling, poor suspension ride quality. I mean, I get that rental fleets are often bare bones versions, but it was so bad, I almost took it back to get something different. It’s also not a good looking car, IMO.
The EV nox should fix most of the problems with the current ICE version though.
They took the 2.0L away and ruined a good SUV. I’ve driven these for rentals, I don’t have a lead foot, but getting onto the freeway or passing with the 1.5L took planning and was gutless. I didn’t feel particularly safe. I also had a wet trunk from sort of leak, but it wasn’t coming from the lift gate, it was the sunroof. The MPG also isn’t all that great with the 1.5L, city driving really does it in when you’ve gotta be on boost just to get up to speed.
This isn’t about winning zero to 60 times, it’s about lethargic and dangerous passing maneuvers. 163 horsepower for an almost 4000lb car should be criminal.
“I didn’t feel particularly safe.” You lost all credibility with this statement. Sub 9 seconds 0-60 is not at all unsafe. If you felt unsafe, that is you as a driver pulling out in front of someone in an unsafe manner, maybe try to be a better driver and more attentive and you won’t have that problem.
The low end torque makes it much better of an engine to drive under 4k rpms than most others and that is where this engine will live 95% of the time. It is a CUV, give me an abundance of low end torque over high rpm HP any day of the week.
Stop making up stuff. First it is 170hp yet it has over 200 ftlbs at 2500 rpm, that is plenty. Second, a loaded LT with AWD weighs in a little over 3500lbs, not nearly 4k.
Dangerous, haha, no vehicle has been dangerous to drive and pass since the late 70’s/early 80’s. Reel in your expectations. The Rogue is slower, the CX-5, Forester, Rav4 and Tucson are all mid 8 second 0-60 and the CR-v is less than a second faster. So by your account all those are dangerous to drive? No, that is the driver, learn better road techniques and you won’t feel that way about one of the highest selling vehicle types (compact CUV’s), or put down the phone and pay attention.
Dangerous and unsafe, ha
Maybe it depends where you’re driving and what you’re doing?
I got 260 foot pounds at that RPM. And I use it!
The 2.0L made a good car. It defeats the 3.6 in the last one and kills it on MPG. There used to be options. I’ll never go from this to that little Cuisinart, unless it’s free!
I agree. THe 2.0L is a good engine. It’s a shame it couldn’t even be offered as an option.
Tell me you are a fan of another brand without actually telling us. “so bad, I almost took it back”, haha, yeah that is far and away not at all how bad this vehicle was, you certainly have some unrealistic expectations for a rental CUV.
Will the Equinox EV buyers receive a 7,500$ IRS kiss? Wondered because this article states its going to be built in Mexico.
The law is for final assembly in North America to qualify. As Mexico is part of North America, the Equinox EV will qualify.
They need to bring back the 2.0L before I switch to a later model.
I remember looking at the dealer like what do you mean no 3.6 this time? Then I test drove that 2.0 and was hooked!
It will be weird next time, not going from Equinox to Equinox, now that they don’t have the engine option. But I ain’t buying a go-kart
I do not know you above people are driving they certainly not GM products. We have a2019 Equinox Premium edition with 120,000km’s on it we live in Canada it is a great SUV. I have not yet had to replace the brake shoes or rotors yet we have driven it to California and Arizona and Route 66 so far no problems.This Equinox travels the 401 highway here in Canada at 130k with no problem still have some gas pedal left just a great SUV thanks a GM lifer !!!!!
I really wanted a Buick Envision Avenir, but could not place an order. I am not happy with this vehicle being manufactured in China for the US market. So I decided to give the Chevt Equinox a try. Took a Premier version for a test drive and liked it enough to place an order. This whole process with the Equinox started in June, 2022 and took until December 30, 2022, when the purchase was finalized. I am so happy with my purchase I am ordering a second Premier for my wife. Compromises? Yes. The interior is not as fancy as the Buick, but after owning it for a while I really like it.
The seats in the Premier are designed for adults and offer good support. You really need to read the improvements about this new engine. GM has a published paper on it. This car is quieter than the Buick Envision and the Premier with 19″ wheels has a nice firm suspension with good handling. Don’t waste your time on the lower end models. There are other positives,but for the sake of brevity, I will not expand any further.
We bought 2019 Equinox Premier brand new we have over 120,000 kms on it the suv has been fantastic we not even replaced the brake pads yet.The only thing that has happened is the hose/tube came off the Turbo we just had to replace a clamp I am a retired GM employee this is one of the best GM products we have purchased next to my Corvettes I would definitely recommend buying another one or maybe the new Blazer.The Equinox/Terrain is the 3rd best selling SUV we love our Equinox Premier a definite top GM buy thanks
