The 2022 Chevy Equinox is the fifth model year of the third-generation crossover, introducing a model refresh complete with updates for the exterior, interior, and powertrain. As GM Authority covered before, two safety features were previously under constraint for certain units of the 2022 Chevy Equinox. Now, however, GM Authority has learned that retrofits for these features are currently under way.
The two safety features in question are Rear Cross Traffic Alert (RPO code UFG), plus Lane Change Alert with Side Blind Zone Alert (UKC). The constraint previously affected all units of the 2022 Chevy Equinox LS and LT trim levels built after July 4th, 2022. The constraint was in effect until the end of production for the Equinox’s 2022 model year, with units affected by the constraint indicated as such on the window sticker by RPO code 00S. The 2022 Chevy Equinox RS and Premier trim levels were not affected by the constraint.
Normally, 2022 Chevy Equinox LS trim levels included both features via the optional Driver Convenience Package (RPO code B26). Meanwhile, 2022 Chevy Equinox LT trim levels offered both features via the Confidence and Convenience Package (RPO code PCP).
The 2022 Chevy Equinox ushered in a mid-cycle refresh for the crossover, otherwise known as a facelift. The Chevy Equinox was originally set to receive a refresh for the 2021 model year, but due to complications arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, the refresh was pushed back to 2022 model year.
With regard to the greasy bits, the 2022 Chevy Equinox was available with a single engine option, namely the turbocharged 1.5L I4 LYX gasoline engine, rated at 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque. Meanwhile, under the body panels, the 2022 Chevy Equinox rides on the GM D2 platform. Production took place at the GM San Luis Potosí plant and GM Ramos Arizpe plant, both of which are in Mexico.
