The 2017 Chevrolet Equinox Offers Solid Performance and MPG
The latest Equinox is a midsized crossover with a sleek look, lots of standard features, and plenty of room inside. But what really stands out is the 2017 Chevrolet Equinox performance and mpg. The vehicle combines ample amounts of power with surprising fuel-efficiency ratings to provide a stellar overall driving experience. Find out what you can expect behind the wheel before touring and test driving the Equinox at Tom Gill Chevrolet in Florence near the Cincinnati area.
The 2017 Chevrolet Equinox comes standard with a 2.4L four-cylinder engine that puts out 182 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque. That is plenty of power for any driving scenario. You also have the option to upgrade to a 3.6L V6 that elevates the power ratings to 301 hp and 272 lb-ft of torque. These are impressive numbers compared to what the competitors have to offer. With the four-cylinder equipped, you can tow 1,500 pounds, but with the V6 your capabilities climb to 3500 pounds. The engines also deliver 0-60 mph times of 9.5 seconds and 7.0 seconds respectively.
Both engines come standard with a six-speed automatic transmission. Front-wheel drive is also standard, but you can upgrade any trim to all-wheel drive. That is a nice feature to have when you're driving in bad weather or traveling over tough terrain.
The 2017 Chevrolet Equinox performance and efficiency specs are impressive across the board, but the way that this crossover saves gas is what really sets the model apart. Fuel-efficiency is rated at 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway for configurations with the four-cylinder engine and AWD. With the V6, those ratings remain impressive at 17 mpg city and 24 mpg highway for FWD versions, or 16 mpg city and 23 mpg highway for versions with AWD.
Chevrolet knows that if you're interested in a crossover, your priority is control. For that reason, they have designed the suspension to be particularly comfortable, making this crossover a pleasure to drive on a daily basis. That emphasis on a smooth, confident ride also helps the cabin remain quiet no matter the driving conditions you're facing.
