As GM Authority previously reported, production of the 2024 Chevy Equinox was scheduled to kick off in the beginning of May 2023. Now, production of the third-generation compact crossover’s final model year has officially commenced.
The 2024 model year is available in four distinctive trim levels, ranging from bottom to top as LS, LT, RS, and Premier. Pricing for LS trim starts at $27,995, as well as $30,890 for LT trims, $32,345 for RS trims, and $33,195 for Premier trims. It’s worth noting that all these listed prices include a $1,395 destination freight charge.
Although largely a carryover from the 2023 model year, the 2024 Equinox is noted for its jump in price over the preceding model, as RS trims are $250 more expensive than equivalent 2023 Equinox units, and LT trims are $1,795 more expensive than equivalent 2023 model-year vehicles.
As justification for this MSRP increase, LT units now include the Confidence & Convenience Package (RPO code PCP), as well as the Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert Package (RPO code PDJ), as standard. Previously, these options were available for an extra $1,595 and $200, respectively.
Meanwhile, RS units are now equipped as standard with the Side Blind Zone Alert and Rear Cross Traffic Alert Package (RPO code PDJ).
In regard to powertrain, the new-for-2023 turbocharged 1.5L I4 LSD gasoline engine, rated at 175 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque, stands as the only engine choice. FWD is standard, while AWD is optional.
Under the skin, the 2024 Equinox rides on the GM D2 platform. Production of the third-generation Equinox’s final model year will wind down at the GM Ramos Arizpe plant in April 2024, and at the GM San Luis Potosí plant in October 2024. As a reminder, the 2025 Chevy Equinox will serve as the next-generation model of the Bow Tie crossover.
