2022 Chevy Equinox Set For Summer Production Flaunting New RS Trim, Formula For Mass Appeal

Searching for a crossover SUV that is practical and fiscally responsible immediately conjures up images of first-rate tech offerings, superior handling, and top-of-the-line safety features. When you have found the perfect choice for you and are ready to drive away into brand-new automobile owner bliss, there is one more item you may have to stomach: sticker shock. Fortunately for you and many other Jim Butler Chevy of St Louis customers, the reasonably-priced 2022 Chevy Equinox is coming soon, and GM Authority just confirmed the summer as its production time after reporting on the Q4 2020 conference call notes. 
The updated Equinox first debuted at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show last February and will feature revised exterior styling and a sporty new RS trim level as well as a new front and rear fascia and black exterior trim. The incoming version will derive power from the turbocharged 1.5-Liter LYX inline four-cylinder and the turbocharged 2.0-Liter LTG inline four-cylinder. We’d opt for the 2.0-Liter version that cranks out 252 horsepower and 260 lb-ft and pairs with the GM 9-speed automatic. Front-wheel drive comes as standard, and all-wheel drive is a keen choice for an all-weather option.
The Equinox is the second-most popular model underneath the Chevy Silverado truck, performing solidly and consistently and now offering buyers a sleeker exterior design and more tech features. There are so many great reasons that the Equinox rallies with full force over the competition such as the Honda CR-V, Mazda CX-5, and Toyota RAV4, and once inside you’ll realize how it can perfectly fit for you and your daily demands. Consumers are now looking to benefit from the best in standard features on lower trim levels, and things aren’t the same as they were when it was mandatory to pull out all the stops in terms of spend amount to feel any sense of luxury. 

The Confidence and Convenience package is one that provides for you the best of both genres of offerings as blind-spot monitoring, dual-zone climate control, heated front seats, leather-wrapped steering wheel, power lift doors, rear traffic alerts, and remote start all aid in their own finely-honed way to properly situate you during the drive. Rear-traffic alert is one of the most useful new technologies out there, as the “parking-space game” has upped its ant in dire seriousness with cars flying around behind you with their completed grocery hauls at top speed.
Radar sensors are integrated with the front bumper to help assist when a hazard is identified and will initiate an emergency stop if you don’t react right away. The 2022 Equinox provides the ideal chance to get around and get away, with so many goodies courtesy of the Bowtie brand packed into a unit that delivers on-point and with a highly-rated rear cargo area. Be sure to check out the Infotainment II package which provides the seven-speaker Bose premium audio system, perfectly rounding out the sound for this best-selling and rightfully sought-after choice!
