Aurora drivers love small SUVs with their combination of style and capability. Some drivers worry that switching from a car to an SUV automatically means a loss of fuel economy. With new small SUV crossovers like the new Chevy Equinox gas mileage isn’t significantly different than what you experience with driving a sedan. Chevrolet of Naperville showed you how the Equinox compares to the Chevy Traverse, now we’re taking a look at how the gas mileage between the Equinox two engine options and two drivetrain options compare. Take a look.

2020 Chevy Equinox Engine Performance

With two engine options to go with its four trim configurations, the Chevrolet Equinox provides two levels of power on the streets of Romeoville. You probably noticed that the 2.0L Turbo engine’s fuel economy was slightly lower since it’s a more powerful engine. These engine specs will give you an idea of the degree of power you get in exchange for the slight difference in fuel economy.

1.5L Turbo 4-cylinder

  • 170 hp
  • 203 lb-ft of torque

2.0L Turbo 4-cylinder

  • 252 hp
  • 260 lb-ft of torque

These levels of power make the Chevy Equinox a little powerhouse that, when properly equipped, can tow up to 3,500 pounds. Add the hidden storage compartment and 63.9 cubic feet of storage space with the 60/40 split rear seat folded flat, and your Equinox has the power to get your gear where you need it to be.
