The 2022 Chevrolet Equinox is, like the 2022 GMC Terrain, getting a rather huge refresh for the new model year. Here’s a rundown of every new feature, color, and option that you absolutely need to know about.

Originally, the changes slated for the 2022 Chevrolet Equinox were supposed to be for the 2021 model year. However, the global pandemic got in the way and those upgrades were pushed off to the next model year.

Each model year, Chevrolet makes small and large changes to their models and how they are packaged, sold, and which features are offered. For the 2022 model year, the Chevrolet Equinox is getting a bigger than normal upgrade, which means lots of new features, new colors, and a total re-organization of the packaging and options.

We’ll break up this new 2022 model preview into three parts:

  • Features and options that are no longer being offered
  • Features and options that are totally new for 2022
  • Features and options that are being changed for the new model year
