The mid-cycle refresh for the Equinox was first shown at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show—the last major auto show before the coronavirus forced the cancellation of all major events for the rest of the year and into 2021. The 2022 Equinox features updated styling that gives it a more mature look. Key to changes include a reworked grille, headlights, and taillights. For 2022, Chevy adds a new RS trim with black-painted badges and wheels, a glossy grille, and a black interior with red contrast stitching.
The current Chevy Traverse, a mid-size family crossover with three rows of seats, dates back to 2017. The updated 2022 model was revealed in March. Changes include narrower headlights, a more cohesive grille, a reworked fascia, and new LED taillights. Inside there is a new driver information center, nicer materials, and a rear power sunshade for the two-panel sunroof. The infotainment system adds wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto compatibility, as well.
The 2022 Chevrolet Equinox goes on sale this summer, while the 2022 Chevrolet Traverse follows in the fall.
