New Chevrolet 2022 Chevrolet Equinox for Sale in Springfield, MA
The versatile Chevy Equinox is back for model year 2022 with some new features to enhance its tried-and-true mix of attributes. The spacious midsized crossover has a new look, with freshly styled front and rear bumpers, a revamped grille, and standard LED headlights and daytime running lights. Wireless smartphone integration (Android Auto and Apple CarPlay) is standard now as well, and the driver-assist suite has been expanded with more technologies. Chevrolet has also added another trim level called the RS, which is distinguished by its blacked-out exterior and interior. The top-of-the-line Premier trim has also seen some changes, getting a sleek black grille with chrome accents and a novel interior look with elegant French-style stitching on the seats.
The 2022 model year has the Chevrolet Equinox’s trim lineup growing to four: the LS, LT, RS, and Premier. Both front-wheel and all-wheel drivetrains are offered with the sole powertrain setup: a 170-horsepower turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder with a six-speed automatic transmission. FWD versions of the Equinox are rated by the EPA to achieve 26 miles per gallon around town and 31 mpg on the highway; AWD will dip that to 25 city/30 highway. The Equinox can handle a small trailer, with a towing limit of 1,500 pounds.
The LS is equipped with nice features like automatic LED headlights and heated side mirrors, which are typically reserved for higher-end trims. It also gets keyless entry, keyless ignition, two 12-volt power outlets (one up front and the other in the cargo area), USB charging and data ports, active noise-cancelling technology for a more serene ride quality, 17-inch wheels, and a 60/40-split rear seatback which, when folded, yields 63.9 cubic feet of cargo space. The optional LS Convenience Package will add a power driver’s seat, deep-tinted rear glass, and a larger driver information center.
The LS also gets the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 System, which can be controlled using either its 7-inch touchscreen or voice recognition. The system’s other features are smartphone integration (Apple CarPlay and Android Auto), Bluetooth for hands-free phone and audio streaming, a six-speaker sound system, SiriusXM satellite radio, and a Wi-Fi hotspot. The LS is set up with Chevy Safety Assist. Its included technologies are automatic high beams, forward collision alert, automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, a following distance indicator (which displays the gap time in seconds between your vehicle and the one you’re following), and lane keep assist with lane departure warning. The optional Driver Confidence II Package will supply rear cross-traffic alert, lane change alert with side blind-zone alert, and rear parking sensors. Also standard in the LS is the OnStar & Chevrolet Connected Services system, which includes several critical emergency services, an automatic crash response system, and stolen vehicle assistance, among other things. What’s more, the LS even comes with Teen Driver technology, which monitors young operators’ habits and even generates data that parents can use as a teaching resource to reinforce safe on-road practices.
The LT adds the features from the LS Convenience Package along with illuminated vanity mirrors, an overhead sunglasses storage compartment, and rear-seat release levers. It’s eligible for the Advanced Safety Package (heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, adaptive cruise control, and a surround-view camera system) and the Confidence & Convenience Package, which includes the items from the Driver Confidence II Package (listed above in the LS section) plus remote start, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and a power liftgate.
The Driver Confidence II Package is once again available, but front parking sensors are added for this trim. If you’re interested in upgrading the LT’s infotainment system, the available Infotainment Package will furnish Chevrolet Infotainment 3 Plus, which has an 8-inch touchscreen, navigation, a few additional USB ports, and a heated steering wheel. Roof rails are offered as an a la carte option.
The debuting RS gets the popular blacked-out treatment inside and out, along with the full contents of the Confidence & Convenience and Driver Confidence II packages, along with roof rails, 19-inch wheels, special RS badges, and black seats with red contrast stitching (leather seats are optional). It also qualifies for the Advanced Safety Package.
The Premier is the most sophisticated trim in the Equinox stable. While it omits the RS’s bolder elements, swaps out the 19-inch wheels for 18-inchers, and gets the roof rails as an option rather than standard, it adds plenty. That list includes heated side mirrors with turn-signal indicators, fog lights, a hands-free liftgate, a 120-volt power outlet, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a universal home remote, position memory settings for the driver’s seat and side mirrors, perforated leather seats, and a safety alert seat, which pulses in the direction of a detected obstacle so the driver can alter their course as needed. The Premier can also be ordered with the Confidence & Convenience II Package, which adds the features from the aforementioned Advanced Safety Package plus an automatic parking system, a power front passenger’s seat, heated and ventilated front seats, and heated rear outboard seats.
