2021 Chevy Traverse MPG: AWD vs. FWD

The 2021 Chevy Traverse gas mileage varies depending upon whether you opt for its front-wheel drive or all-wheel drive configuration. Take a moment to see the specific fuel economy numbers for both drivetrains below:

  • 2021 Chevy Traverse with AWD: EPA-estimated 17 mpg/city and 25 mpg/highway
  • 2021 Chevy Traverse with FWD: EPA-estimated18 mpg/city and 27 mpg/highway

You’ll notice that there’s not a drastic difference between either drivetrain, meaning that upgrading to AWD doesn’t require much of a sacrifice at Tampa gas stations.

Chevy Traverse Standard Engine

The 2021 Chevy Traverse keeps things simply by offering you one impressive engine option across all of its trims. Despite the admirable Chevy Traverse gas mileage, this SUV manages some downright impressive engine specs:

  • 3.6L V6 standard engine
  • 310 hp
  • 266 lb-ft of torque
  • 5,000-pound maximum towing capacity
  • Smooth-shifting 9-speed automatic transmission
  • Standard Automatic Start/Stop technology for increased efficiency

So how does the Traverse achieve this power with such high fuel economy? You can thank an especially dynamic 9-speed transmission, Start/Stop technology that turns your engine off while idling to conserve fuel, and a drive-mode selector that allows you to adapt your engine output to the Palmetto terrain on which you drive!
