Chevrolet has always made its SUV lineup stable through these years. But the year 2022 has encouraged the automaking brand to expand the lineup by adding more models to its existing one. So, if you check the 2022 model year lineup of Chevrolet crossover SUVs, and narrow it down to the compact ones, there are now eight instead of seven.
The new addition to the existing compact SUV lineup of Chevrolet is the Bolt EUV, which is an SUV version of the already popular EV model Bolt that appeared in the market in the guise of a subcompact hatchback. But from the entire range of the subcompact crossover SUV models that Chevrolet has released for the year 2022, we have handpicked only those that are mostly recommended by the auto experts as the best in the lot, shared the sales in-charge of the Spruce Pine Chevrolet dealer.
2022 Chevrolet Trax
Trax is the smallest SUV model in the Chevrolet inventory. The small crossover SUV is still making rounds in the market with its unique set of attributes, that attracts those buyers who want a daily commuter for their nuclear families while making brief weekend adventures without any anxiety. The 2022 model year edition of the Chevrolet Trax gets a slight bump in its power front which is the only significant change you can track from its last year’s model. Hence the 2022 Chevrolet Trax models will now have a new 1.4-liter turbocharged I-4 engine included in its lineup which makes 155 hp, which is 17 ponies extra from what the old engine could deliver.
The bump is also seen in the torque output which currently counts 177 lb.-ft., which is again 29 lb.-ft. more than what the 2021 Trax models could achieve. These changes in power sources are also reflected in the fuel economy rates. So, currently as estimated by the EPA, the 2022 Chevrolet Trax models can score 24 mpg on the city roads and 32 mpg on the highways with the FWD setup and the count comes down to 23 mpg and 30 mpg on the same drive speeds respectively if you drive the AWD.
2022 Chevrolet Equinox
Equinox has been the best-selling SUV from Chevrolet for the last few years. The release of the 2022 model year edition of the Chevrolet Equinox enhanced the sales record because of the significant upgrades done to its lineup. At the exterior front, the Equinox received a makeover for the year 2022, where the front and the rear fascia get a smart face. At the front, there is a new grille design and a pair of new LED headlights and daytime running lights, while the rear end glitters with the new taillight getting slimmer in shape.
Apart from this the 2022 Chevrolet Equinox lineup also adds up a sporty RS trim model to the existing range.
