Fuel Economy announcement!

Camaro fuel economy higher than expected.......

V6 fuel economy -- with 6 sp manual -- 17 City - 29 Hwy
with 6-speed automatic -- 18 city -- 29 Hwy --

6.2 Liter with 6 sp manual trans -- 16 city -- 24 hwy
6.2 Liter with 6 sp auto trans -- 16 City -- 25 Hwy.

Keep in mind that the EPA rating system changed after the 4th gen went out of production -- so these numbers, while official - are 'conservative'...


The V6 Camaro has better Hwy mpg than:

Audi TT e.w
Audi A5
BMW 3 series
Mustang
Challenger
Charger
Nissan 350Z
Hyundai Genesis 3.8
Mazda RX8
Scion TC
Miata
Impreza WRX STi
Eclipse.

The Camaro SS with V8 and Auto Trans STILL has better
Hwy mileage than:

Audi TT 3.2
Audi S5
BMW M3
Mustang V6
Challenger/Charger SRT8
Mazda RX8
Eclipse GT.

29 mpg for the V6 is incredibly good. A great selling point for future potential customers.

Good numbers yes, but I got 29 in my 96 V6. I am sure this one will get better

Sold the 68
Ready for the 2010

I noticed that as well. Ford is going to have to ditch the 5 speed manual and 5 speed automatic transmissions to start if they wanna start closing that gap. (didn't claim that they would)
