Which Chevrolet Vehicles Have the Best Performance with the Best Fuel Mileage?
The Chevy’s that Master Power & Efficiency
When budgeting for a new SUV, car, or truck, it’s important to keep in mind both the cost of the vehicle and the operating expenses. Keeping the gas tank filled, insurance, and regular maintenance are all part of the ordinary expenses that come along with having a vehicle of your own, but they’re not the same amongst all vehicles.
Historically speaking, vehicles that were economical to own didn’t have the greatest power and performance. It stands to reason that smaller engines would use less gasoline. However, technology has made huge strides in automotive engineering, allowing us to present this list of Chevy vehicles that combine performance and fuel mileage to deliver everything drivers want and more.
The Economical SUV: The 2022 Trailblazer
The Chevy Trailblazer is considered a small SUV, but don’t let that fool you into thinking it’s crowded inside. With up to an impressive 54.4 cubic feet of spacious cargo space and the ability to stow objects up to 8.5 feet long with the passenger seats folded, that’s simply not true.
The 2022 Trailblazer lineup includes two engine options: an ECOTEC 1.2L Turbo engine good for 137 horsepower and 162 lb/ft of torque, or an ECOTEC 1.3L Turbo engine that cranks things up to 155 horsepower and 174 lb/ft of torque.
The 1.2L engine has an impressive fuel economy rating, providing up to 30 miles per gallon combined driving on the city and highway. The 1.3L engine may be larger and mightier, but still manages a combined driving fuel economy rating of 28 miles per gallon.
For Fans of Sedans: The Fuel-Efficient 2022 Malibu
The Chevy Malibu also allows drivers to choose their engine. The 160-horsepower 1.5L Turbo is standard and provides 29 miles per gallon fuel economy on the city streets, boasting a whopping 36 miles per gallon on the highways. The available 250-horsepower 2.0L Turbo engine revs things up, but still uses fuel in moderation, getting 22 miles per gallon in the city and 33 miles per gallon on the highway. Test drive a 2022 Malibu at Chevrolet of Homewood today.

The Workhorse: 2022 Silverado 1500
You may be thinking there’s no way a pickup truck like the Silverado 1500 could make it onto a list about fuel economy. The 2022 Silverado 1500 powered by the 3.0L Duramax Turbo-Diesel engine offers a “seriously, that’s not a typo” level of fuel economy, with 23 miles per gallon in the city and 31 miles per gallon on the busy highway for a combined economy rating of 26 miles per gallon.
And when it comes to performance, it’s a strong contender among the pack of powertrains available. With its 277 horsepower and mighty 460 lb/ft of torque, 2-wheel drive Silverados equipped with the turbo-diesel engine can tow up to 13,300 pounds when properly equipped. So not only will your truck get the job done quickly, but it will help you save a few dollars on fuel so you can treat yourself afterward, too.
