Drivers in the Marshalltown market for a new SUV have probably considered the 2020 Chevy Equinox. Not only does this compact SUV control like a dream, it also excels in the fuel economy department. Read below for a guide to 2020 Chevy Equinox gas mileage from Thys Automotive Family.

2020 Chevy Equinox Fuel Economy: Engine and Drivetrain Options

The Chevy Equinox gas mileage you’ll end up using for your Cedar Rapids commute or your Williamsburg joyrides depends on which engine and drivetrain you choose.

  • First Engine: 1.5L turbo 4-cylinder with front-wheel drive: This engine starts at an EPA-estimated mpg of 26 city/31 highway. If you choose all-wheel drive for this engine, you’ll get an EPA-estimated mpg of 25 city/30 highway.
  • Second Engine: 2.0L turbo 4-cylinder with front-wheel drive: This engine gives you an EPA-estimated mpg of 22 city/29 highway. Upgrade to all-wheel drive for an EPA-estimated mpg of 22 city/28 highway.

You can maximize your 2020 Chevy Equinox fuel economy with the 1.5L Turbo 4-cylinder FWD engine.

2020 Chevy Equinox Fuel Economy: Further Engine Specs

So, for the benefit of all-wheel drive, you sacrifice a little fuel economy. For control on adventures outside of Blairsville, the slight difference could be worth it. Indeed, the 2.0L engine offers other benefits:

  • The 2.0L engine gives you 252 hp and 260 lb-ft of torque, which is a major upgrade from the 170 hp and 203 lb-ft of torque on the 1.0L engine.
  • Also, on certain trims and with the right equipment from a parts center, the 2.0L engine gives you max towing of 3,500 pounds.
  • These two factors make the engine upgrade worth it for a compact SUV as athletic as it is efficient!
