I got the 4 cyl/FWD Equinox. It gets at or better than the city EPA estimate of 22mpg, typically getting 23-24mpg without AC, 22 with AC on. On the freeway, get 31-32mpg without AC, 29-30 with AC. see full Chevrolet Equinox review

Not as advertised - trying to do all the right things (timing lights, light foot, no idling, tire pressure, etc.) but lower than what i thought i would get when compared to 17.6 for an envoy (15 city/ 21 hwy) with 200,000 miles and bad driving habits. see full Chevrolet Equinox review

2016 4dr SUV 283-horsepower 3.6L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
16 /24 in the AWD V6, 19 overall per the EPA. The city number is quite poor, though the highway number is competitive. We don't put all that many miles on our cars so it was something that we could more easily overlook, but if you've got a fairly long commute that isn't mostly on the highway, this might be a deal breaker. see full Dodge Journey review
2012 4dr SUV 283-horsepower 3.6L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic FWD
The biggest disappointment for the car is the lower fuel economy. On the highway, it gets right around 30, but in town driving suddenly drops to under 20. That's a big difference, and since it is primarily used around town (less than 15% highway) we're paying a bit more in fuel costs. see full Dodge Journey review
