# 16 Powerful 4-Wheel Drive Vehicles That Get Great Gas Mileage

NEW YORK (TheStreet) - Four-wheel-drive vehicles are great at powering through snow, but can cost you at the pump. That said, there are plenty of cars, trucks and SUVs that can get you and your family safely through the wet and snowy weather that get great fuel efficiency.

The U.S. Environmental Agency and the U.S. Department of Energy rate the fuel efficiency of every vehicle in America and *TheStreet* found the best 4-wheel-drive ones when it comes to gas mileage, to save you money at the pump while you stay safe during any weather.

Take the Subaru Impreza AWD, for instance. It gets an average of 31 miles per gallon -- and it retails for under $20,000. The Nissan Rogue AWD gets an average of 28 miles per gallon and retails for $25,000 to $30,000.

On the other end of the spectrum, there are 4-wheel-drive vehicles, most of them huge trucks and SUVs, that get horrible gas mileage. First, see our list of the worst gas guzzlers, ranked from highest miles per gallon to lowest, then the fuel efficient models. The massive gap between the two groups will shock you.
