The EPA has released the 2017 GT’s fuel economy. Let’s see just how the march of progress and efficiency has improved the halo car’s environmental impact...
Yes, you’re reading that right. Same 14 combined, MPG, but city and highway are actually worse. Yup, 5.4 liters of supercharged V8 just got better (or at least equal) economy to 3.5 liters of turbo V6.
I just don’t know what to say. The new GT is supposed to be lighter. More aerodynamic. Small displacement turbo engines are supposed to do really well in standardized testing! How exactly it got a lower score is open to speculation of the highest degree. Just, wow.
Ecoboost? Or just Boost? Discuss.
