Recommended Posts

automakers successfully fought off any mandates that would require cars and trucks go farther on a gallon of gas

THIS INFACT IS  TRUE

If the government told you that you had to spend a bunch of money upgrading your vehicles for essentially nothing (meaning consumers could care less about it), wouldn't you be against it too?

Maybe I'm mistaken, but I do believe the new agreement DOES in fact have increases. Not significant increases, but still increases.

If not then what is the point of having a "new" agreement.

Even still, the article should've been more clear that "automakers" also includes Nissan and the green do-gooder giant Toyota to name 2 instead of alm ost directly linking to the big 2.5

With GMs new V8s i dont see GM having any EPA issues anytime soon.

What do you think a 4.8 Silverado will be able to get? 19/28?
if thats the case might as well use a 4.8 instead of the 3.5L in the colorado (maybe squeeze out 20/29).

i guess u could call GM the Honda of trucks now eh? lol

The media loves to show footage and comment on the horrible fuel economy of Escalades and Suburbans but never mentions the horrendous efficiency of a QX56 or Armada.
