MPG Of 2022 Suv's and Crossovers - Hybrid and Standard ICE Power


Washington DC April 9 2022; The AIADA online asked that maybe you’re not ready for a vehicle with a plug, but still want to get the best gas mileage possible from your SUV or crossover.

That means you’re looking at a traditional internal combustion vehicle or an old-fashioned standard hybrid with on board internal charging.

Generally speaking, all other things being equal, a hybrid will be a bit more efficient than a car without an electric motor and battery that can be charged by the engine and regenerative braking.

Of course, some smaller, lighter, more aerodynamic gas-only vehicles will be more MPG efficient than a big, heavy hybrid. For instance, something like the Chevy Trailblazer gets better fuel economy than a Ford Explorer hybrid.

Autoblog complied an index to the most efficient SUVs that don't have a plug, including crossovers which are SUVs that use car-like unibody construction rather than a truck-like body-on-frame.

They are ranked based on fuel economy figures from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Brand News and reviews.

The AutoBlog article lists the available models in order of their combined fuel economy in miles per gallon, which is generally a good indication of what you can expect in real-world driving. City and highway ratings are also included in parentheses.
