2010 Chevy Equinox Expected to Get 32 MPG
Today, Chevy announced that its redesigned Equinox crossover is expected to get 32 mpg on the highway. That’s better than the originally predicted 30 mpg, which was a class-leading number itself. City mileage is expected to move up 1 mpg from the previous estimate as well, to 22 mpg. These numbers are for the base, front-wheel-drive, four-cylinder model.
Comparable four-cylinders include the Honda CR-V (20/27 mpg city/highway), Toyota RAV4 (22/28 mpg), Ford Escape (20/28 mpg with an automatic transmission) and Dodge Journey (19/25 mpg).
Final estimates from the EPA aren’t in yet, but manufacturers don’t usually announce such figures without being confident in their own testing.
The 2010 Chevy Equinox goes on sale this June. The base model will start at $22,440.
