2015 Chevrolet Equinox Fuel Economy

7.0
Fuel Economy

The V-6 model of the 2015 Chevrolet Equinox is thirsty, but it has ample torque to move you around town. However, the four-cylinder is both frugal and fuel-efficient, and is worth a look.

EPA ratings with the new, larger 301-hp, 3.6-liter V-6 remain unimpressive for those who care about mileage: 16/23 with all-wheel drive or 17/24 with front-wheel drive.

Gas mileage is very good in the four-cylinder Equinox, but even the V-6 versions are acceptably frugal.

The Equinox's EPA ratings of 22 mpg city, 32 highway ratings for the base four-cylinder model with front-wheel drive make it one of the better non-hybrid crossovers for fuel economy. Stepping up to AWD, mileage drops to 20/29, still good for a comfortably sized crossover. All four-cylinder models now come with an 'Eco' button which activates a mode with more conservative air-conditioning operation, earlier torque converter lockup, and different shift points.
