What has Been Updated for the 2022 Chevrolet Equinox?

There might not be a more popular or successful crossover SUV in the Chevrolet lineup than the two-row Equinox. Not only is this platform one of the pioneers of the crossover SUV class, but it has held its place at the head of its class from the very beginning to today. For the current model year, Chevrolet has made several improvements to the 2022 Equinox but stopped just short of making a complete and total overhaul. In addition to making several aesthetic upgrades, our manufacturing partner’s design team has also introduced an RS version of the Equinox, with styling cues all its own. Several technology enhancements and more active safety systems can also be found throughout the 2022 Chevy Equinox lineup. Let’s take a look at a few things you might want to know.

New Exterior Design Changes

The silhouette offered by the Chevrolet Equinox has become iconic in the crossover SUV class – which it will retain for the 2022 model year. However, there will be more than a few new elements helping distinguish the current Equinox from its predecessors. Particularly sharp-eyed Budds’ Chev customers may notice new:

  • Front/Rear fascia elements
  • Updated grille design
  • Revised LED headlights
  • New LED daytime running lights.

Chevrolet is also introducing some changes to the Premier trim grade, including a black and chrome grille design, newly available 19-inch wheels, logo-projecting rear liftgate, and several exclusive interior elements. Additionally, LS and LT models each pick up new accent elements. Customers looking for a more athletic and refined iteration of the 2022 Equinox will want to check out the RS trim grade and its black exterior accents, 19-inch Dark Android wheels, and black interior upholstery with red stitching.

Updated Infotainment Technology

The Chevy Equinox was also among the first platforms in its class to be equipped with smartphone connectivity for Android and Apple devices. That technology has progressed faster than anyone could have imagined. Customers taking home the 2022 Equinox will find wireless access to Android Auto and Apple CarPlay available on most trims. Some models will also be compatible with the Amazon Alexa digital home assistant. This partnership will allow owners to use their existing Alexa hub to:

  • Send driving directions to the vehicle
  • Inquire about available the fuel level
  • Access lists made with the Alexa unit
