Reading Time: < 1 minute

Customers looking to purchase a 2021 Chevrolet Equinox will have to make do with the 1.5-liter turbo-four engine after Chevrolet dropped the Equinox’s 2.0-liter variant.

However, come the 2022 model year, a 2.0-liter engine could return for the model despite it being a slow seller, only accounting for 10% of Equinox sales.

Chevrolet did not divulge any more details about the engine, but a spokesperson for the company said it will be a “new” 2.0-liter engine joining the refreshed Equinox.

The new Equinox was originally scheduled to arrive for the 2021 model year after it was introduced at the 2020 Chicago Auto Show in February. But General Motors made a few changes in the rollout plans owing to the coronavirus pandemic. So instead, the new Equinox will now be a 2022 model.

Also affected by the reshuffling in the GM headquarters is the production of other Chevrolet models such as the Traverse, Bolt EV, and Camaro. Design updates for the Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra, meanwhile, appear to be on schedule.
