2022 Chevrolet Equinox

June 7th, 2022 by

Are you looking for a new vehicle for the family, with top-of-the-line technology and safety features? The 2022 Chevrolet Equinox is your best choice.

The 2022 Equinox has excellent handling and peak interior comfort across all models, with a powerful 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine and a six-speed automatic transmission. Although it is a smaller SUV, the Equinox can tow up to 3,000 pounds when equipped.

 

What’s new about the 2022 Chevy Equinox’s exterior?

The exterior of the 2022 Equinox is more curved than before, giving the illusion that the vehicle is in motion, even when it is parked. The lower side walls are straight lines, which balance the sculpted waves in the doors. New headlights, grille, and front and rear bumpers give the 2022 Equinox a refreshed look. The new RS model also offers more sporty styling, with 19-inch wheels, LED headlamps, a black bowtie emblem, a gloss black mesh grille, and gloss black side rails.

The 17-inch aluminum wheels, paired with all-season Blackwall tires, on the 2022 Equinox help you stay safe in all driving conditions. The exterior mirrors are heated, allowing them to defrost in icy weather. The acoustic laminated windshield with solar protection helps to keep the interior cool. The 2022 Equinox gets 26 mpg in the city, and 31 mpg on the highway.

You can add molded assist steps to the Equinox for easy entry into the SUV. The upper trims have a powered, programmable liftgate for access to the rear cargo area with the press of a button. You can operate the liftgate hands-free on the premier trim by placing a foot beneath the tailgate where the logo hits the ground.

Overall, the 2022 Equinox’s exterior is modern and appealing. The vehicle is not bumpy on the road, and it has great handling and steering. The height is perfect for seeing what’s ahead of you on the road and the size, front/rear parking assist[1], HD Surround View[2], and the standard rearview camera help you park safely and efficiently.

 

What features does the 2022 Equinox’s interior have?

The interior of the 2022 Equinox has space for all your cargo in the 60/40 split, spacious rear seat. You’ll be comfortable in the Equinox, with heated and ventilated front/rear leather seats[1] and eight-way power seating on the premium models and standard manual adjustment on the entry-level models.

The new RS model continues its sporty styling on the interior, with jet black cloth seating, red interior stitching, black ice chrome accents, and a black headliner.

The 2022 Equinox has a keyless lock, allowing you to keep your keys in your purse or pocket when starting your vehicle. It also has a remote start, which you can use to start and pre-warm/cool the vehicle or turn on the heated seats[2].

 

 

What is the entertainment system in the 2022 Chevy Equinox?

You can tune out the outside world in the 2022 Equinox, with active noise cancellation technology and the acoustic windshield, and listen to your favorite music and podcasts with wireless Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and Bluetooth streaming. You can control these programs, and more, with the 7-inch touchscreen in the center stack.

If you want more accessibility, you can upgrade to the optional 8-inch touchscreen in the upper trims of the Equinox, which features built-in navigation and cloud access to personalize your settings. You can also opt to use Alexa to remote start and lock/unlock your vehicle.

Access to Chevy Connected is standard across all trims. With Chevy Connected, you can use free or paid services on the MyChevy app, including the marketplace, which you can use to order ahead at restaurants, gas stations, and more.

 

Is the 2022 Chevy Equinox safe?

The 2022 Chevy Equinox is a great vehicle for the family and all weather conditions. All trims come standard with Chevrolet Safety Assist driver-assistance technology, featuring six advanced safety features, including:

  • Automatic emergency braking
  • Forward collision alerts
  • Front pedestrian braking
  • Following distance indicators
  • Lane-keep assistance with lane departure warnings
  • Intellibeam Auto High Beam assist

If you want more safety features in the Equinox, you can upgrade to the OnStar Security and Safety Package for roadside assistance.

The 2022 Equinox also offers Teen Driver Technology, which has customizable settings to encourage safe driving for teenagers. These settings include an in-car report card, speed warnings, speed limiters, audio limits, and a setting to turn off the music until the driver wears a seat belt.

In addition, the 2022 Equinox has Buckle to Drive, designed to encourage drivers to wear their seatbelts before driving. If a driver tries to shift out of park and is not wearing a seatbelt, the setting will not allow the driver to shift until 20 seconds have passed, with audio and visual alerts.

With all these features and more, you can feel safe and protected in your 2022 Chevrolet Equinox.
