2021 Chevy Equinox Fuel Economy: FWD vs. AWD

The 2021 Equinox provides just one efficient engine option: the 1.5L Turbo 4-cylinder. The standard and most efficient drivetrain is front-wheel drive, but if you’d like enhanced traction on Raleigh roads, an upgrade to all-wheel drive is available. Based on your choice, the Chevrolet Equinox mpg ratings will vary, but only by a mere one mile per gallon:

  • 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

If you’ve done your research on the Equinox, you may know that the outgoing 2020 model offered a second engine choice: a 2.0L Turbo 4-cylinder. You can still secure the keys to an Equinox with this engine if you wish – just check our used vehicle inventory to see what’s available. Depending on the time of year, you may also find some brand-new 2020 models lingering within our new Equinox inventory. Should you opt for a 2020 Equinox with the 2.0L Turbo engine, the Chevy Equinox fuel economy ratings will shake out like this:

  • 2.0L Turbo 4-cylinder with FWD: EPA-estimated 22 mpg city/29 mpg highway
  • 2.0L Turbo 4-cylinder with AWD: EPA-estimated 22 mpg city/28 mpg highway
