by Frank

2022 Chevy Equinox Trim Levels and Standard Features Explained: The 2022 Chevy Equinox is a compact sport utility vehicle (SUV) that goes up against some of the most well-known automobiles on the market, such as the Honda CR-V and the Toyota RAV4. Therefore, Chevrolet has refreshed the Equinox for the 2022 model year in the hopes of making it a more alluring purchase option.

This most recent model has been given a modernized appearance by the addition of brand-new LED headlights, LED daytime running lights, and a brand-new grille. The look of the front and rear bumpers have also been updated to reflect the changes. You will also be able to get the Equinox in a new trim level known as the RS, which includes a greater number of standard amenities along with sportier-looking touches like black wheels and blacked-out trim.
