The New Chevy Equinox | Utica, NY

The Impressive New 2022 Chevy Equinox

The Chevy Equinox slots in as a bold and sporty compact SUV that boasts all the latest in terms of tech, comfort, and convenience features. The Chevy Equinox makes for an excellent personal cruiser or family hauler thanks to seating for up to five and a variety of trim configurations. The new Chevy Equinox is available in four trim levels: LS, LT, RS, and Premier.

What's new to the 2022 Chevy Equinox?

The latest model year of the Chevy Equinox gets a few minor tweaks and changes, with the most notable of them being the addition of the RS trim. Other changes include a revised front and rear exterior design along with an optional button to disable engine start/stop. Otherwise, the 2022 Chevy Equinox is a fully carryover from the previous model year.


The Chevy Equinox keeps the performance realm straightforward by offering up just one engine option across its four trims. That's right, Whitesboro and Ilion drivers can expect a 1.5-liter turbocharged inline-4 engine under the hood, which makes 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque. This engine is solely available with a 6-speed automatic transmission. Mohawk drivers can enjoy an option in the drivetrain realm, however; with front-wheel drive coming standard and all-wheel drive being an optional upgrade.


Tech features cover all the modern connectedness needs thanks to a standard touchscreen infotainment display, smartphone connectivity (Apple CarPlay/Android Auto), and a basic audio system. The LS trim also includes USB ports and in-vehicle Wi-Fi connectivity. Upper trims make even more tech available, including a larger 8-inch touchscreen infotainment display, a premium audio system, and a navigation system. The LT trim also includes SiriusXM satellite radio.

Interior & Exterior Features

Interior features vary depending on the trim selected, with the base trim level coming with cloth-trimmed seats and air conditioning. The LT trims upgrades things a bit by adding in an 8-way power driver's seat and tinted windows. The RS trim features black interior styling with red stitching along with an RS Shift knob. The top-level Premier trim features leather-trimmed seats with French stitching, a hands-free power liftgate, and dual-zone automatic climate control. Herkimer drivers can also opt for optional heated front seats (this feature is separately available, not attached to a trim).


The Chevy Equinox doesn't skimp in the safety realm thanks to a standard set of driver assistance features and an extensive array of driver assistance upgrades. The base LS trim comes equipped with lane departure warning, lane-keeping assist, and forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking. Upgradeable safety features include blind-spot monitoring with rear cross traffic alert, safety alert seat, parking sensors, and parking assist.
