CHEVY EQUINOX GAS MILEAGE
The perfect crossover has the technology to keep you entertained during long work commutes, the power to add thrills to your road trips, as well as the efficiency to help you save gas throughout it all.
Wexford, Pittsburgh, and Cranberry Township drivers in the market for a fuel-efficient crossover can’t overlook the gas mileage of the Chevy Equinox. Check out this review from the Baierl Chevrolet team to learn how it can help you save.
WHAT IS THE CHEVY EQUINOX GAS MILEAGE?
The Chevy Equinox offers two different engine options, one more power-focused and the other made to help you save on gas. If efficiency is your main concern, you’ll want to opt for the 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine.
With the standard 1.5L engine equipped, the Chevy Equinox maintains an EPA-estimated 31 MPG highway. As you cruise the Steel City, either heading to work, school, or to one of the city’s great restaurants for some upscale eats, you’ll have far less fuel pitstops to worry about.
While your car sips on fuel, it still packs a peppy power punch, too! With 170 HP and 203 lb-ft of torque, you still get smooth and fast acceleration when you step on the pedal.
Want Even More Power?
If you’re still looking for more power, don’t hesitate to upgrade to the available 2.0L 4-cylinder engine. Not only does it produce 252 HP and 260 lb-ft of torque, but it also comes with turbocharging to boost your efficiency.
A SELF-STARTING ENGINE
With its turbocharger, the Chevy Equinox engine already exhibits stronger internal combustion for added power and efficiency. However, it adds one more intelligent feature to help you eke out every last drop of fuel.
Standard in the Equinox is an Automatic Stop/Start system. This feature can turn the engine on and off for you when the car is idling to save gas.
As an example, let’s say you’re in stop-and-go traffic in the morning. The engine will turn off while at those red lights so you’re not wasting fuel just sitting in there!
MORE FUEL-EFFICIENT TRACTION
One of the reasons drivers choose crossovers over sedans is for their added traction and ground clearance. Since they sit higher off the road and offer all-wheel drive (AWD) systems, they make safe choices in the snow and rain or on loose terrain.
The Switchable All-Wheel Drive system available in the Chevy Equinox doesn’t just enhance traction and safety, but it can help save gas, too!
This AWD system reads the roads for you. Most of the time, it rides in a more efficient front-wheel drive mode to conserve fuel. It only switches to full AWD traction and power when the roads get especially slippery.
