2022 Chevrolet Equinox LS vs. LT

Providing good utility, connectivity, and safety at an affordable price, the 2022 Chevrolet Equinox crossover SUV retains a compact platform. Below you'll find the highlights of the LS base trim and upgraded LT model.


The 2022 Equinox LS extracts 170 total hp from a 1.5-liter engine, including the conventional variable valve timing function. Cranking out 203 lb-ft of peak torque, the four-cylinder powerhouse is built on the proven ECOTEC platform. A turbocharger and direct injection enhance the performance of this compact powertrain, which supports a maximum trailering load of 1,500 pounds as defined by SAE J2807 towing standards. Compatible with unleaded fuel and E15, the turbo engine sends output to an automatic transmission system that offers six shifting points and an overdrive mechanism. The Driver Shift Controls make it easy to go up and down the gear ratios in real-time. Engineered to minimize noise and vibrations, FNC rotors are standard on the Chevy Equinox LS and LT. A mechanical jack and multiple tools are included with the purchase of both crossover SUVs. Additionally, these two-row models have an electronic parking brake that includes inclination sensors.


The 2022 Chevy Equinox LS leaves the factory in five different paint colors, including Blue Glow, Summit White, and Silver Ice. You could select the Cherry Red finish for the LT model for an extra fee at the dealership. Such a premium coating looks good with the optional 19-inch aluminum wheels that have pockets with the Gloss Black design. Both Chevy crossover SUVs may be fitted with bright wheel locks and bright rear bumper protectors. These efficient family cars offer front and rear bowtie emblems with a black finish. Additionally, the LT edition may be equipped with roof-mounted side rails and roof rack cross rails for hauling light cargo.


A single-zone climate control system with manual adjustments is standard inside the 2022 Equinox LS. Covered in real leather trimming, a premium steering wheel is optional for the LT. Both small crossover SUVs have the Chevrolet Infotainment 3 console with a color display that measures 7 inches wide. You could get the Infotainment I Package for the LT model if you want enhanced connectivity. This bundle includes an 8-inch HD touch screen with GPS navigation. Several other perks of the optional package are USB ports, an SD card reader, and a 120-volt power outlet. Both compact Chevy models have multiple driving aids that the Chevy Safety Assist powers.
