Which Equinox is the Best?
Base LS Equinox model may have an enticing price compared to rivals, but we think you'll be happier in an LT, RS, or Premier. The 1.5-liter turbo engine is adequate.

How Much Does a 2022 Chevrolet Equinox Cost?
The 2022 Chevy Equinox is available in four trims: LS, LT, RS and Premier. Based on the 2020 model trim levels: The
LS ($25,800) includes a few other features like a compact spare tire and compass but more importantly opens the door for options. Among them are AWD. More recommendable is the
LT ($26,900). It should include an 8-way power driver's seat, tinted windows, high-intensity headlights, 4.2-in color driver information screen and SiriusXM satellite radio. The LT trim also is available with the higher-powered engine and options like power tailgate, heated front seats and dual-zone climate control. The new
RS ($30,100) includes gloss black grille, black bowtie and other blacked-out badging, 19-in darkened wheels, black interior with red stitching and RS shift knob. The
Premier ($31,000) is highlighted by blind-spot monitoring with
rear cross-traffic alert, hands-free power liftgate with projection logo, leather interior with French stitching, 8-in touchscreen with high-def rearview camera,
dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, fog lights, 18-in wheels, chrome exterior accents, heated exterior mirrors, LED headlights and taillights and rear parking sensors.
Adaptive cruise control, which comes standard on the Honda CR-V, Toyota RAV4 and
Subaru Forester, is now optional on more trims than past Equinox models. A new high-end option for 2022 is
Automatic Parking Assist, which can help with parallel parking.
In addition to mandated features like airbags, rear-view camera and traction-control systems, every Equinox includes active safety features like forward-collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist and Intellibeam automatic high-beam headlights. Also standard are General Motors' Teen Driver Mode that can set parameters on some vehicle functions and the subscription-based OnStar telematics system with a 3-month trial. Optional safety features include adaptive cruise control, parking assist, surround-view camera system and blind-spot monitoring with rear cross-traffic alert. Crash-test results for the 2022 Equinox are still to be announced. In prior tests, the Chevrolet Equinox earned a 5-Star overall government rating, while the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave this crossover SUV its highest rating of Good in every crash test and Superior in the accident avoidance and mitigation test.
2022 Chevrolet Equinox vs the competition
2022 Honda CR-V — The Honda CR-V was one of the first compact crossovers and remains a benchmark. This Honda has more cargo room than the Equinox, a sterling record of reliability and resale value and a fantastic new
hybrid model that earns up to 40 mpg.
2022 Toyota RAV4 – The RAV4 is another leader among small SUVs and a creator of this segment. Toyota's small crossover also has more cargo space than the Equinox and a broader lineup of models that range from the RAV4 Prime
plug-in hybrid to a TRD Off-Road version.
2022 Subaru Forester – The Subaru Forester has AWD standard, impressive ground clearance, a standard suite of active safety features and some of the highest resale values in the segment.
2022 Kia Sportage — Although it has less cargo room than some competitors, the
Sportage appeals with value pricing, solid driving manners, tons of content and
Kia's 10-year/100,000-mile powertrain warranty.
Used Cadillac XT5 — This upscale
Cadillac cousin to the Equinox debuted in 2017 and brings a standard V6, more refinement and added luxury. A model that's a few years old can be had for about the same price or less than a new Equinox.
