For the two mid-size crossovers in the 2022 model year, it will now be possible to opt for the 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder. The price of this engine is still unknown.

The 2022 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain will once again be available with a turbocharged 2.0-liter four-cylinder, according to foreign publication GM Authority. In the 2021 model year versions, these crossovers were only available with a turbocharged 1.5-liter four-cylinder engine.

When the facelifted Equinox debuted, Chevy initially said it would be available with 1.5- and 2.0-liter four-cylinder turbo engines. But the company later announced that it would only offer the 1.5-liter variant to buyers.

According to GM official figures, the Chevy Equinox and GMC Terrain will use GM’s 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine, which is internally designated LSY.

This engine is already available in cars such as the Cadillac XT4 and Chevrolet Blazer. The powerplant is expected to develop 237 horsepower and 350 Nm of torque.

The 2.0-liter turbocharged engine previously available in these models was slightly more powerful at 252 hp. (353 Nm). Despite slightly less power, the LSY engine reportedly has lower emissions and better cleaning power than its predecessor.
