How Good is the Chevy Equinox Gas Mileage?

August 29th, 2022 by
2022 Chevrolet Equinox Driving Through City

The 2022 Chevy Equinox gets up to 26 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway, which makes it a strong choice in the highly competitive compact SUV segment. This year’s model is only offered with one engine, but it does give you a choice between front-wheel drive and all-wheel drive, and the Chevy Equinox gas mileage will vary depending on which option you select. Comparing new vs. pre-owned Equinox models? Our in-depth guide can help with that too!

2022 Chevy Equinox Fuel Economy by Powertrain

Every 2022 Chevy Equinox comes equipped with a 1.5-liter turbocharged i4 engine that provides 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque.

Not quite sure if all-wheel drive is the right choice for your drives in Carmel and Indianapolis, IN? Rest assured that you can upgrade without undermining your budget:

  • 1.5L Turbo 4-cylinder with FWD: EPA-estimated 26 mpg city/31 mpg highway
  • 1.5L Turbo 4-cylinder with AWD: EPA-estimated 25 mpg city/30 mpg highway

Looking for something even more efficient? The 2024 Chevy Equinox EV will be arriving at our dealership in the not-so-distant future.

2021 Chevy Equinox Fuel Economy by Powertrain

Stepping back one year will unlock an additional turbocharged engine option with 252 horsepower. Although the mpg specs for the base engine are carried over without changes, we’ve laid out the Chevy Equinox fuel economy for all 2021 configurations:

  • 1.5L Turbo 4-cylinder with FWD: EPA-estimated 26 mpg city/31 mpg highway
  • 1.5L Turbo 4-cylinder with AWD: EPA-estimated 25 mpg city/30 mpg highway
  • 2.0L Turbo 4-cylinder with FWD: EPA-estimated 22 mpg city/29 mpg highway
  • 2.0L Turbo 4-cylinder with AWD: EPA-estimated 22 mpg city/28 mpg highway

Chevy Equinox Fuel Economy by Powertrain: Prior Years

The 2020 Chevy Equinox gas mileage specs are identical to those achieved by the 2021 model—but if you’re thinking of pursuing a model from 2018 or 2019, there’s one important difference to keep in mind! Models from these two years were offered with a potent—and remarkably efficient—1.6L diesel engine. Models equipped with the diesel powertrain get up to 28 mpg city and 39 mpg highway with FWD, or 28 mpg city and 38 mpg highway with AWD.
