Thinking of Buying a New Car? Read This Before You Do.
Make sure you check out the Model Year 2015 Fuel Economy Guide before you make your decision.
While gas prices are historically low at this time, no one knows how long this downward trend will last and most certainly we will see gas prices rise again in the future.
The Fuel Economy Guide offers a broad range of information that can be helpful when shopping for a new vehicle which includes an estimated annual fuel cost for each vehicle. The estimate is based on the vehicle’s miles per gallon (mpg) rating and national estimates for fuel prices. The online version of the guide gives consumers a personalized fuel cost estimate based on local gasoline prices and their personal driving habits. The guide includes a greenhouse gas rating (from one to 10) for each model, giving consumers a quick way to identify vehicles with low greenhouse gas emissions.
In addition, the guide provides “best-in-class” lists to help consumers find the most fuel-efficient advanced-technology vehicles as well as the most efficient gasoline- and diesel-powered vehicles. The best-in-class lists include multiple market segments, from two-seaters to large pickup trucks.
