Chevy Equinox Gas Mileage & Performance Specs

Performance is a big player when it comes to your Chevy Equinox Miles Per Gallon. The expert engineering under the hood will not only give you the oomph you need on the streets, it also lends itself to an accommodating fuel economy that we think you'll appreciate.

All trim levels of the Chevy Equinox are powered by the 1.5L turbocharged 4-cylinder engine. This produces a respectful 170 horsepower and 203 lb-ft of torque. For streamlined shifting, this engine is paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

Together, these components work together to give you an EPA-estimated gas mileage of 26 city/31 highway/28 combined MPG.

2021 Equinox Drivetrain & Gas Mileage

In addition to the engine, the drivetrain also plays a big part in your Chevy Equinox gas mileage. A lightweight front-wheel drive (FWD) system comes standard and offers the highest city fuel economy numbers for each engine (which is listed above).

However, if you need a bit more traction control during your winter morning commutes, you can also equip your SUV with the available All-Wheel Drive (AWD) system. This system monitors all four of your wheels and automatically makes adjustments when needed during challenging road conditions.

If you opt for this available feature, you'll receive an EPA-estimated gas mileage of 25 city/30 highway/27 combined MPG.

Automatic Stop/Start Technology

Regardless of which drivetrain you choose, you'll have the benefit of standard Automatic Stop/Start technology.

This incredibly progressive system prevents fuel waste during city driving by powering down your engine at extended stops at lights or in traffic. Then, when you hit the accelerator, the engine will seamlessly come back to life. Better yet, this feature comes standard on every trim level.
