It comes with 19-inch Dark Android-painted wheels, a Gloss Black mesh grille, LED headlights, a redesigned lower fascia, a Black Ice surround, and exclusive black badging.

According to the Cottonwood Chevrolet dealership, the other models also get interior styling updates.
Kelley Blue Book was suitably impressed with the 2022 Chevrolet Equinox, writing: “For 2022, all Equinox models use a 1.5-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. That might sound small, but it’s normal for modern smaller SUVs and doles out surprising power for its size. In past models, we’ve found its 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque do a decent job moving this SUV, and the engine pairs well with the standard 6-speed automatic transmission.”
