The 2023 Chevy Equinox competes in the compact crossover segment. As a result, it’s one of the most affordable Chevy SUV options on the market. However, not all drivers want a standard Equinox without any bells or whistles. That’s why Chevy offers a few trim options and packages for the SUV. Here’s a look at what a fully loaded 2023 Chevy Equinox will cost. 

Chevy has a few trim options available for the Equinox

According to Chevrolet, there are currently four trim options on the Equinox. Chevy will also be introducing an EV version of the Equinox soon, but it won’t be available until late 2023.

The LS trim is standard on this Chevy SUV, starting at about $28,000. For the 2023 model year, the Equinox comes with a brand-new 1.5-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, and it’s the only engine option on all trims. Front-wheel drive is standard, and it’s standard on all trims as well. All-wheel drive is available if shoppers pay about $1,500 extra. All Equinoxes also come standard with a six-speed automatic transmission.

The LT trim is the next one, starting at about $29,000. It adds minor upgrades to the Equinox, including the addition of LED daytime running lamps. The RS trim is the second most expensive starting at about $32,000. It gets some new badging but also some additional equipment. For instance, it gets dual-zone automatic climate control and a front and rear parking assist system.

The Premier trim is Equinox’s top trim, starting at just over $33,000. In addition to the features that carried over from the other trims, it starts with an 8-inch touch screen instead of the standard 7-inch one that the other trims have. The Equinox also has a hands-free gesture liftgate, fog lamps, and heated outside mirrors.

Owners who want more features have a lot of options, though. The Iridescent Pearl Tricoat paint job will add about $1,000 to the Chevy SUV’s price tag. This trim comes standard with 18-inch aluminum wheels, but they can be upgraded to 19-inch Gloss Black aluminum wheels for $2,100. This Equinox comes standard with some packages, but Chevy offers even more packages. 

For example, the Confidence & Convenience II Package costs about $1,750, and it’ll add features such as a 360-degree camera, adaptive cruise control, and heated front and rear seats. A panoramic sunroof will cost $1,500, and smaller options like rear splash guards will cost $230. In total, a fully loaded Equinox will cost about $44,000. There are a lot of accessories available too, and they can add upwards of $10,000 to the final price tag depending on what shoppers choose.

An overview of the 2023 Chevy Equinox

Even without these features, the Equinox is a capable daily driver. Its brand-new 1.5-liter engine gets 175 hp, a small power improvement over the last model year’s engine. This engine gets about 29 mpg combined, and when the Chevy is adequately equipped, it can tow up to 3,500 pounds.

Chevy also gave the Equinox a lot of standard tech and safety features. Apple CarPlay and Android Auto are standard and even has a WiFi hotspot. Chevy Safety Assist, which is Chevy’s suite of smart safety features, is standard too. This gives the Equinox features such as forward collision warning, automatic emergency braking, and lane-keep assist.
