Crossover SUVs are renowned among Oceanside drivers for their upright posture, ease of use, and general practicality. That said, most of these large vehicles are far from what anyone would call fuel efficient. The 2022 Chevy Equinox is different. Coming in at a thousand pounds lighter than many of its competitors and sporting surprisingly slick aerodynamics, the 2022 Chevy Equinox fuel efficiency is up to 26 mpg city and 31 mpg highway. Continue reading to learn more about 2022 Chevy Equinox MPG from the experts at Quality Chevrolet!

 

 

2022 Chevy Equinox Gas Mileage Details

There are two main drivetrain configurations available for the 2022 model year, both using the same engine. 2022 Chevy Equinox fuel efficiency does vary slightly depending on which you select, but both are highly efficient. Here are the EPA statistics:

  • 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

2022 Chevy Equinox Engine Power 

A crossover SUV is not some prototype hypermiler, so it needs to be capable of moving people and cargo easily around Poway. The power to accomplish this comes from the turbocharged inline four under the hood. The turbocharger can force in additional air into the engine under load for power, while allowing peak MPG while being driven normally around Carlsbad.

1.5L Turbo 4-cylinder Performance Specs

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

The 2022 Chevy Equinox can tow up to 1,500 pounds, thanks to this extra grunt. Find out more about the Equinox’s engine and capabilities with these Equinox details.

Fuel Efficiency Features of the Equinox

The reasons for the Equinox’s fuel sipping abilities are simple, but important. While this requires a holistic engineering effort, these are some MPG-improving feature highlights: 

  • Automatic Stop/Start: When you stop at a red light, the Equinox’s engine will stop, and then instantly start again when the light turns green. This small feature is enabled by the array of sensors throughout the braking and powertrain system, and saves a surprising amount of fuel around Oceanside. There is also a manual switch to toggle the system on or off. 
  • Light Weight and Turbocharged Engine: These combined features lead to most of the Equinox’s MPG advantage. The car-like unibody chassis of the Equinox is much lighter and more efficient than the truck-based chassis of many other SUVs. The 1.5L turbo engine is all aluminum to save further weight, while boasting a labyrinthine electronic control system to squeeze maximum efficiency out of the vehicle in all driving conditions.
