If you’re ready to make the upgrade from a sedan to an SUV in San Antonio but are worried about losing fuel-efficiency, you’ll want to consider the 2020 Chevy Equinox. This small SUV offers the best of both worlds with a spacious interior and cargo area, while still managing to earn an EPA-estimated 26 mpg city/31 mpg highway at the base-level! Depending on your drivetrain preferences and whether you’d like to make an engine upgrade, the new Chevy Equinox gas mileage will vary just a bit. Explore the detailed specs with Northside Chevrolet below!

Chevy Equinox Fuel Economy: Choose Your Powertrain

At the base-level, the stylish 2020 Chevy Equinox is equipped with a 1.5L Turbo 4-cylinder engine; available for upgrade is the 2.0L Turbo 4-cylinder. Front-wheel drive is standard, while all-wheel drive is available. As you will see outlined below, the Chevy Equinox fuel economy is different for each powertrain configuration. Opting for AWD tends to coincide with slightly lowered gas mileage, which may be important to note for Boerne commuters who are most concerned with cost-effectiveness. For others, the versatility offered by AWD could be well worth a couple of gallons to the mile.
