2012 Hyundai Equus Fuel Economy

6.0
Fuel Economy

Hyundai's Equus is one of the few cars we've reviewed in recent years that has seen its gas mileage ratings drop.

There's good reason: for the 2012 model year, the Equus drops its smaller, more fuel-efficient 4.6-liter V-8 for a new 5.0-liter version of the same engine, this one making 429 horsepower.

Moving up in displacement pushes the Hyundai Equus' fuel economy down.

Where the 4.6-liter earned EPA ratings of 16/24 mpg, the larger-displacement engine--coupled to a new eight-speed automatic--has been rated by the EPA at 15/23 mpg.

No hybrid, electric or diesel versions of the Equus are planned for the American market.
