Performance Specs and Fuel Economy

While there are a lot of available features and equipment that can be added to the 2022 Chevy Equinox, some things are available across the board. First, all 2022 Equinox platforms are powered by a turbocharged 1.5-litre, four-cylinder engine that will be attached to a six-speed automatic transmission. It will make 170 horsepower and 203 pound-feet of torque. Front-wheel drive is standard, but all-wheel-drive trims are available. 

Additionally, the 2022 Equinox is very efficient, returning fuel economy scores of 8.9 L/100 km in the city and 7.7 L/100 km on the highway with front-wheel drive. Versions with all-wheel drive can record 9.4 L/100 km in the city and 8.0 L/100 km on the highway.
