The 2022 Chevrolet Equinox is a compact SUV with a starting price tag of $26,445 as of the moment I’m writing this. It offers roomy seating for five passengers and has a reliability score of 3.5 out of 5, according to RepairPal. But how much stuff can you pack into a Chevy Equinox’s trunk?
The trunk of a Chevy Equinox has a maximum cargo volume of 63.9 cubic feet behind the first row. With its rear seats up, the cargo capacity is dropped to 29.9 cubic feet.
In this guide, I’ll explain the interior and exterior specs of the 2022 Chevrolet Equinox and how the configurations differ.
A Brief Overview of the 2022 Chevy Equinox
The first Chevy Equinox was introduced in 2004. It shared many of the same specs and features as the Pontiac Torrent of that time, but it differed in terms of front and rear styling. The Torrent saw its final days in 2009, along with the end of the Pontiac brand, but the Chevy Equinox continued to live on.
Starting in 2016, the Equinox entered its third generation of production. The main differences between the current generation and its predecessors are its smaller stature and 3 engine options. There were also several safety features added to the third-generation Equinox, including but not limited to collision warnings and surround-view cameras.
In 2020, Chevrolet introduced a “refreshed” look of the Equinox, updating its front grille and redesigning its lamps. However, you can expect identical cargo space specifications between the 2021 and 2022 versions.
2022 Chevy Equinox Trunk Dimensions
The 2022 Chevy Equinox has 2 rows of seating, with 2 seats for the driver and front passenger and a row of seats for 3 additional riders. With the rear seat lowered, the trunk space in a 2022 Chevy Equinox is about 63.9 cubic feet. When the rear seats are up, its total cargo space drops by roughly 53% to 29.9 cubic feet.
Cargo specs remain the same across all 8 of the 2022 Chevy Equinox configurations.
