List of 30 MPG SUVs
For those who are looking for a new SUV, but are also looking for the best gas mileage, or are looking to “go green”, there are several new 30 mpg suv vehicles available to consumers, which is going to give them their powerful SUV, and the car that will suit their family’s needs, and will still allow them to save at the pump when they have to fill up.
So, when considering the newest suvs on the market today, most companies, if not all, are now offering hybrid suvs, or at least more fuel efficient suvs on the market, which all offer a 30 mpg suv to the consumer. So, below are a few of the newer model suvs that are offering more fuel efficiency, yet still getting the same power that you are looking for, when purchasing your new suv.
First off, the Toyota 4Runner offers a 30 mpg suv for the consumer to turn to. With the 2011 and 2012 models, Toyota has introduced a new model 4Runner, which gets 32 miles per gallon on the highway, and up to 28 miles per gallon in the city, which comes out to an overal 30 miles per gallon. The body has also changed on the 4Runner, which is a lot sportier on the exterior, offers a new leather upholstery, more cargo room, and 60/ 40 folding rear seats, for added space if needed for travel. The 4Runner still seats up to five, but if the cargo space is used, can seat up to six passengers comfortably.
There is also a new digital dashboard, which offers everything right at the drivers fingertips, allowing them to see all functions easily, and to be able to get a cleaner look than older models. It also offers an mp3/ ipod connection port, AWD or RWD, and the best in safety features, including side and curtain airbags base. There are a few models to consider as well, including the LX, LE, and other base models, which are going to offer additional (or fewer) base features to choose from.
Ford Explorer Hybrid
Another car to consider when choosing a 30 mpg suv is the 2011 Ford Explorer Hybrid. Not only is it a hybrid, but it offers up to 33 miles per gallon overall. It can get up to 35 on the highway, and up to 31 or 32 in city driving. The new Explorer hyrbid offers seating for up to seven passengers, offers satellite radio, standard dashboard, CD (6 CD changer), and AM/FM radio base. It also offers a great deal of safety, coming base with all season tires, front and side curtain airbags, and a rugged exterior, and a shorter height (than other suvs), which will ensure that the suv is less likely to flip.
There are also several models that the consumer can choose from, which can include leather interior, DVD and GPS systems, and digital dashboard, but of course these features are going to run a higher price on the Explorer of your choice. However, the base package car does come with all safety built in, and still gives the great drive and power that suv drivers are looking for, but a much more fuel economic model than in past Explorer’s, and in other suvs on the market today.
Another car to consider is the Dodge Durango suv. This gets an overall 30 mpg (32 highway miles, and up to 29 city miles per gallon). The Durango is also a much trendier suv, and offers a great looking exterior, which is both stylish and sporty, that many consumers are looking for. The Durango also comes with leather interior seating, offering a more luxurious base package than other suvs on the market. The Durango offers an electric as well as a standard fuel engine, and although it is not a hybrid, does run on less emissions due to the split in the engines.
It also offers front and side window airbags, controls on the steering wheel (radio settings and volume), automatic startup (self start ignition), and can seat up to seven passengers (5 larger adults comfortably). It also offers a satellite radio standard, and CD player, and there are several air conditioning (heater) vents throughout the suv, so that those in the back can control the temperature setting that they are getting, rather than getting the same temperature setting as those in the front seat. The Durango also offers the option to get a DVD player and a GPS player, in the LE model, however it is going to run the consumer a higher price.
There are also other luxury vehicles such as Audi, BMW, and Lexus, which have introduced newer hybrid models, that are getting 30 mps suv numbers, but these autos are much pricier on the cost scale, and although they offer much more luxury than most base suvs, however are not purchased by nearly as many consumers, due to the price tag that they carry. But, for those who are looking for pure luxury, and want the fuel efficiency, there are new model hybrids to consider in these pricier and more luxurious name brand manufacturers in the car world.
No matter what consumers are looking for in their new suv, there are several manufacturers that are offering hybrid, and more fuel efficient suvs, trying to get consumers to purchase these models. So, when considering fuel efficiency, yet still getting that powerful drive you are looking for in your suv, and the space you need to seat your family, there are several models to consider with 30 mpg suv models on the market.
