- chevy has released pricing for the 2022 equinox, which features visual updates.
- the base price is up $2000 to $26,995, as there's no longer a base l version.
- the 2022 equinox will go on sale in the third quarter of 2021.
the chevy equinox is dropping its low-cost l model for 2022, meaning the base price is up by $2000, but most trim levels are cheaper than last year. chevy originally unveiled the facelifted version of the compact crossover for the 2021 model year but delayed it until 2022 because of the covid-19 pandemic; it will finally reach dealerships in the third quarter of this year.
the 2022 equinox's higher starting price is now $26,995 for the ls model, which is actually $600 less than the equivalent 2021 equinox ls. the better-equipped lt starts at $28,095, a $700 decrease from last year, and the loaded premier starts at $32,195, a $500 decrease. replacing the l in the lineup is the equinox rs, which includes an sporty-ish appearance package and starts at $31,295.
all 2022 equinox models come with a turbocharged 1.5-liter inline-four with 170 horsepower; the more powerful turbo 2.0-liter four, which we preferred, was dropped for 2021. all versions come standard with front-wheel drive and offer all-wheel drive as a $1600 option.
