Choose the Right SUV or Pickup to Get the Most MPGs
With warm weather, road trips, and low gas prices in the summer forecast, our friends at the U.S. Department of Energy have a few tips if you’re heading to the dealership to make a new vehicle purchase soon.
Of course, SUVs are all the rage, again, but that doesn’t mean buyers need to sacrifice fuel economy for cargo capacity. Fueleconomy.gov, the U.S. Department of Energy’s resource tool, lists 71 model year 2016 SUVs that get over 25 combined MPG. Those include all-electrics, like the Tesla Model X, hybrids like the Lexus NX 300h, and non-hybrids like the Honda HR-V.
Even pickups are fair game, with the Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon Diesels (in 2WD configuration) rated at 25 MPG. More info can be found at fueleconomy.gov
