The 2022 Chevrolet Equinox – a crowd favorite, for good reason
Designed to appeal to a large customer base, the 2022 Chevrolet Equinox got a revamp for the 2022 model year that brought brand-new, slimmer headlights and a new front end to make for an unpolarizing yet very easy on the eye exterior design. With lots of interior room, a smooth ride, one of the best infotainment systems on the market, and top marks for safety from both IIHS and the NHTSA, there's no wonder that the Equinox convinces so many prospective buyers just like you to pick it over any of its competitors.
But let’s take them one by one.
The first thing you'll notice on the 2022 Equinox is its exterior look. Although not flashy or over-the-top modern, there's something comforting about it that makes you feel as though you’re looking at the equivalent of a hot cup of coffee on a cold, winter day. Comforting an unpolarizing, the 2022 Equinox invites you to discover its many hidden talents, and you’ll come across the first one if you explore what’s under its hood.
A single engine choice is given for the newest Equinox, a 1.5-liter turbo-4 that can deliver 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque. Paired with a 6-speed automatic, the 1.5-liter is more than enough for the model’s reduced weight and dimensions. Front-wheel-drive is standard but all-wheel-drive is an available feature on all trims.
Inside the Equinox, the cozy feeling continues with a stylish dash that’s dominated by a 7.0-inch color touch elevated as high as possible for ease of use. Comfortable seating and an ample 39.9-inches of legroom out back allow the Equinox to transport up to 5 passengers at once or 4 in complete comfort. There’s also tons of cargo space with 29.9 cubic feet behind the second row of seats and 63.9 behind the first.
Probably most importantly, the 2022 Equinox managed to score top marks from both the NHTSA and the IIHS having received 5 stars out of 5 for overall safety and a Top Safety Pick respectively. A remarkable feat that makes the Equinox one of the safest crossovers on the road in 2022, largely due to its sturdy build and standard safety features such as Automatic Emergency Braking, Active Lane Control, and Automatic High-Beam Headlights. Upper trims add Blind-spot Monitors, Parking Sensors, and a Surround-view Camera System to Equinox’s safety features list.
Produced in four trims, the LS, LT, RS, and Premier, the base Equinox model is fitted with a 7.0-inch color touch, cloth upholstery, power features, and both Android Auto and Apple CarPlay compatibility. For a car priced below $27,000 and considering its standard safety features, that’s an absolute steal.
