What's the most fuel efficient, gasoline-powered car in America? That's right, the Chevrolet Cruze Eco which gets an EPA estimated 42 miles per gallon. What's better than 42 miles per gallon? 64.42 miles per gallon. That's what an Australian couple sponsored by Shell Oil accomplished while driving a Chevy Cruze Eco across 9,552 miles through 48 states.
Chevy engineers created the sleek Cruze with new designs that enhanced the efficiency of the modern-day compact. Air shutters meant to reduce aerodynamic drag, a reduced weight, and light-weight, yet still attractive rims all played a major role in the crowning of the most efficient gasoline-powered car.
Afraid there will be a lack of power? This isn't a Prius; the Cruze Eco packs an Ecotec 1.4L turbocharged engine that can deliver the power of a larger engine while still maintaining its eco innocence.
The Cruze Eco is available as a six-speed manual and a five speed automatic. The manual gets an estimated 28 mpg (city) and 42 mpg (highway) whereas the automatic gets 26 mpg (city) and 39 (highway). Both options are great ways to save some green at the pump.
