2010 Chevrolet Equinox Reaches 32 MPG

Chevrolet Equinox is indeed playing a key role in Chevy's future product lineup, with General Motors every once in a while praising the new model's fuel efficiency. After announcing at the 2009 North American International Show held in Detroit that the 2010 Equinox will boast an estimated fuel efficiency of 30 mpg (7.8l/100 km), the US manufacturer today revealed that further testing actually revealed that Equinox is even capable of reaching 32 MPG (7.3l/100 km) on the highway.

Obviously, this only led to a self-praising statement issued by General Motors who applauded these figures and emphasized that the 2010 Equinox becomes the best-in-class when it comes to highway fuel economy. Furthermore, the 32 MPG in highway conditions means the Equinox is able to travel for around 600 miles, GM said.

"Offering the fuel economy of a sedan with the functionality of a crossover, the Equinox is a superior value for our customers," said Ed Peper, GM North America vice president, Chevrolet.

"Getting best-in-class fuel economy and great storage for less than $24,000 is significant," Peper added. "In fact, the starting price for this all-new model is $1,800 less than the previous generation Equinox."

Chevrolet announced back in April pricing for the 2010 Equinox, with the cheapest model to be priced at $23,185 for the FWD LS model. The car will be offered in three different trims, LS, LT and LTZ, with all-wheel drive systems available either as standard or as an option depending on the version you choose.

Two new engines are also included in the range, a 2.4-liter Ecotec delivering 182 hp (135 kW) and a 3.0-liter DOHC V6 unit producing 264 horsepower (190 kW).
