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.
