Which Chevy Has the Best Fuel Efficiency?

March 3rd, 2023 by

As inflation continues to increase exponentially, searching for methods to save money is as important as ever. One of the easiest ways to conserve cash is to purchase or lease a fuel-efficient vehicle. The less fuel your car uses, the fewer trips you’ll need to make to the gas pump. And with gasoline prices constantly fluctuating (and usually increasing), fewer trips to the gas station are always better.

Luckily, at Eskridge Chevy, we have many fuel-efficient models for you to choose from. Whether you want a truck, SUV, or hybrid, we have something to suit your needs. Our wide selection has everything you’re looking for, and we offer a version optimized for fuel efficiency for each model. Here are the most fuel-efficient 2023 Chevys across five different builds.

Most Fuel-Efficient Subcompact Car: Camaro (Rear-Wheel Drive)

Depending on the trim level you choose, the 2023 Chevrolet Camaro has a V-6, V-8, or four-cylinder engine. Those interested in maximizing their Camaro’s fuel efficiency will want to select the four-cylinder trim. This version achieves 25 mpg combined (22 city/30 highway), meaning you can go 100 miles on 4 gallons of gas.

Even if you opt for this most fuel-efficient version, the 2023 Camaro delivers a powerful and exciting driving experience. Additionally, you’ll get a smooth ride with its quality base suspension. The Camaro’s responsive handling adds to this smoothness, ensuring that you’ll have a satisfying experience behind the wheel. This latest generation of Camaro also features several interior improvements from its predecessors, such as higher-quality materials and even more comfortable front seats, which add to the overall experience.

Most Fuel-Efficient Truck: Silverado (Two-Wheel Drive)

At 26 mpg (23 city/33 highway) and with a Duramax 3.0-liter inline-six engine, the 2023 Silverado Two-Wheel Drive is Chevy’s most fuel-efficient truck. Moreover, this version of the Silverado ties the GMC Sierra as the most fuel-efficient full-size pickup on the market.

And the Silverado accomplishes this fuel economy without sacrificing power. The Duramax diesel engine reaches 305 horsepower and 495 lb-ft of torque, and it can tow up to 9,500 pounds. Plus, the Silverado’s interior matches the quality of its engine. Depending on the trim you select, this truck comes loaded with all the design, technology, and comfort features you need.

With storage cubbies spread throughout the cabin and a carbon-fiber reinforced bed, the Silverado is spacious and tough enough to haul almost anything. You can also pick between three different bed lengths depending on your preference. No matter the job, you can rest assured knowing your Silverado can handle it.

Most Fuel-Efficient SUV: Trailblazer (Front-Wheel Drive)

Chevy’s most fuel-efficient 2023 SUV is the Trailblazer Front-Wheel Drive (FWD) with the three-cylinder, 1.3-liter engine. This version of the Trailblazer reaches 31 combined mpg (29 city/33 highway), so you can go 100 miles on 3.2 gallons of gas.

With this fuel efficiency, excellent cargo space, and top-of-the-line technology, the 2023 Trailblazer makes an ideal vehicle for families, campers, or carpoolers. The Trailblazer’s fold-flat rear seats and folding front passenger seat give you extra space for extra-large or long cargo.

The Blazer’s newest optional infotainment system allows you to connect two Bluetooth devices at the same time. The infotainment system and optional seven-speaker Bose stereo system are an audiophile’s dream. Additionally, the Trailblazer comes standard with automated emergency braking with pedestrian detection, lane departure warning, and lane-keep assist.

Most Fuel-Efficient Midsize Car: Malibu (FWD)

The 2023 Chevrolet Malibu is the most fuel-efficient midsize car Chevy offers. With a four-cylinder, 1.5-liter engine, the Malibu achieves a combined 30 mpg (27 city/35 highway). Altogether, you can travel 100 miles in your Malibu on 3.3 gallons of gas.

Every Malibu utilizes a continuously variable transmission (CVT), giving the car a smooth driving experience. The engine and transmission combine with a comfortable and technologically advanced interior to deliver a superb ride, whether a driver or a passenger. Plus, with a large trunk and plenty of carry-on capacity in the cabin, the Malibu is perfect for all types of individuals and families.

Most Fuel-Efficient Vehicle Overall: Bolt EV (FWD)

As an all-electric vehicle, the 2023 Bolt EV is Chevy’s most fuel-efficient vehicle. The Bolt EV gets a combined 120 MPGe (131 city/109 highway) — or miles per gallon equivalent, in which one gallon of gasoline is the equivalent of 33.7 kWh of electricity. So, you can drive 100 miles in your Bolt EV with only 28 kWh of electricity, the equivalent of less than a gallon of gas.

Every Bolt EV delivers an easy and unique driving experience thanks to its one-pedal driving feature. Its quiet engine, nimble handling, and quality infotainment system make the all-electric subcompact an overall excellent driving experience. Additionally, even at its subcompact size, the Bolt has plenty of space to comfortably seat you and three others.
