The 2015 Chevy Equinox: Ultimate Fuel Efficiency Has Never Been So Affordable

Most people shop for a used crossover or compact SUV to accommodate a growing family, or daily demands like carpooling, whether to and from sports practices, or with colleagues commuting back and forth from the office.

Whatever your reason, shopping for a used Chevy Equinox is a great way to enjoy maximum fuel efficiency and keep some of your hard-earned dollars in your bank account.

Two engine options are offered in the 2015 Chevy Equinox: The first, a 2.4-liter four-cylinder engine is rated at 182 horsepower ad 172 lb.-ft of torque. Available power comes from the optional 3.6-liter V6 engine, backed by 301 horses and 272 lb.-ft. of torque.

Equipped with the V6, the 2015 Chevy Equinox is quicker than its same-segment competitors by one half of a second, zipping from zero to sixty mph in 7.0 seconds flat.

Four trim levels make up the 2015 Chevy Equinox line: the L – brand new for 2015 – the LS, the LT, and the LTZ.

Fuel efficiency is EPA-estimated at 26 mpg combined in the front-wheel drive four-cylinder engine and 23 mpg from the four-cylinder engine with all-wheel drive.

Meanwhile, the V6 with front-wheel drive gets 20 mpg combined, and the all-wheel returns 19 mpg combined.

Also new for the 2015 model year, all Chevy Equinox crossovers feature 4G LTE connection with WiFi.

Starting at the original MSRP of $22,120, the 2015 Chevy Equinox comes in a variety of options and customizable packages.
