The new model will have to wait until 2024.

Despite the fact that the 2021 Chevrolet Equinox debuted just a few months ago, we are already talking about its successor. And not only about the mid-cycle update, but also about the new generation of SUV. However, this will not happen until 2024, but the first details about the upcoming new product have already appeared.

Production of the 2025 Equinox will begin in May 2024 at GM’s Ramos Arizpe plant in Mexico, according to a new report from the GM Authority. The current Equinox will remain on sale until roughly the first months of 2025, which basically means the two generations of the crossover should cross over in the market for about nine months.

The online publication also claims that the 2025 Equinox will be assembled in three separate factories. In addition to Ramoz Arizpe, it will also be produced at the San Luis Potosi plant in Mexico and the CAMI assembly plant in Ingersoll, Canada. A second Mexican plant will assemble the model from November 2024, while a Canadian plant will begin assembly from February 2025.

During the first year of the fourth generation Equinox, the model will be sold alongside the current third generation variant. However, they should be very different as the new Equinox will move to the GM VSS-F architecture, whereas the 2021 Equinox is based on the GM D2 platform. Long before that, the Equinox is expected to receive a significant update for the 2022 model year.

According to preliminary reports, the SUV could lose its 2.0-liter turbo engine, leaving the 1.5-liter turbocharged as the only option available for the 2022 model year.
