How Much Gas Mileage Does a Chevy Equinox Get?

It lends itself well to a lively performance on Apex-area roads and highways, without sacrificing efficiency. This is the sole engine choice for the new Equinox, but drivers will have their choice of either front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive for the drivetrain. Compare the FWD vs. AWD Chevrolet Equinox mpg ratings, here:

More On the Equinox Performance 

Many small SUVs are able to offer up a competitive fuel economy, but it comes at the expense of horsepower and torque. Such is not the case for the 2022 Chevy Equinox, which proves that you can have the best of both worlds! Despite the high Chevrolet Equinox mpg numbers, this powerhouse still manages to churn out seriously impressive performance specs:

1.5L Turbo 4-cylinder Performance Specs

  • 170 hp
  • 203 lb-ft of torque
  • Max. Towing Capacity: 1,500 pounds

Yes, the Equinox can even tow up to 1,500 pounds! When you’re towing a lightweight trailer around Holly Springs, you’ll appreciate the Chevy Equinox fuel economy even more. 

Get to Know the Fuel-Efficient Equinox Features 

  • Automatic Stop/Start: This advanced feature helps you conserve fuel without even thinking about it. How does it operate? When you reach a full stop with your foot on the brake, under the proper conditions, Auto Stop/Start will automatically shut off the engine to save fuel. As soon as you take your foot off the brake, the engine starts right back up. This feature is a huge help with the Chevrolet Equinox mpg, and it doesn’t even require any action on your end!
  • Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS): Many Cary drivers tend to ignore their vehicle’s tire pressure. However, too much or too little air in your tires can negatively affect your fuel efficiency as your vehicle’s engine works harder to compensate for the less-than-optimal road grip. The TPMS in the Equinox alerts you any time one or more of your tires’ pressure is off, so you can fix the problem and continue enjoying optimal performance and efficiency.
