Chevrolet refreshed the Equinox for 2022 MY, dropped the base L trim, added a new RS trim level, set pricing, and now is preparing to start production.
After some delays caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the manufacturer finally plans to begin building the 2022 Chevrolet Equinox on October 4, 2021, at three facilities of General Motors – two in Mexico, one in Canada.
According to GM Authority, the automaker has already sent recommendations to dealers to follow a certain trim mix, namely: top Premier – 15%, entry-level LS – 18%, all-new sporty RS – 25%, mid-level LT – 42%.
The base L model is discontinued for the 2022 model year, so the cheapest one now is LS. As we can see, Chevrolet expects the Equinox LT to be the most in-demand model, while the Equinox RS will account for a quarter of sales.
We’d like to recall that updates for 2022 include front and rear fascia, standard LED headlights, adding an engine auto stop-start defeat, removal of the 2.0L I4 LTG turbocharged gasoline engine.
By cumulative sales volume in the first half of 2021 in the United States, the Chevrolet Equinox took fourth place in its segment. The Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4, and the Nissan Rogue are ahead.
