Partial EPA-estimated ratings for the 2022 GV70 show that it gets just 1 MPG more than the GV80.

"With both SUVs sharing the same powertrains, it shouldn’t be all that surprising to see that both vehicles have similar fuel economy ratings. With the turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine and all-wheel drive, the 2022 GV70 is rated to get 19 mpg in the city, 25 mpg on the highway, and 21 mpg combined. The larger GV80 gets 18 mpg city, 23 mpg hwy, and 20 mpg combined.

Since the GV70 and the GV80 come with twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engines that produce 375 horsepower and similar all-wheel-drive systems, there’s little reason to believe these SUVs would get drastically different figures. The GV70 is smaller and weighs less than the GV80, which explains why it’s slightly more fuel-efficient."

My immediate reaction was being shocked but since the GV70 has the same engines as the GV80 and it's marketed as the sporty SUV it does make sense.

Soaring gas prices have me wondering how it'll impact GV80 & GV70 sales.
Could it push electric versions to arrive sooner?

The EPA hasn't released gas mileage estimates for the GV70 2.5T, but expect it to be close to the GV80 2.5T that does 23 mpg (22 mpg with all-wheel drive).

It will be great to get some real world testing numbers when the proper reviews come out ( if they ever do). Does anyone know why it is taking so long for the press in the US to get their hands on this vehicle? I've had mine now for 6 weeks.

Does anyone know why the 2.5T Sport Prestige trim level has different EPA ratings than the rest of the 2.5T line up? All the 2.5T trims are rated at 300hp and 311lb/ft of torque so I don't understand why the Sport Prestige trim has lower gas mileage ratings.
