2012 Hyundai Equus: 15/23 mpg
Hyundai's Equus is one of the few cars we've reviewed in recent years that has seen its gas mileage ratings drop.
There's good reason: for the 2012 model year, the Equus drops its smaller, more fuel-efficient 4.6-liter V-8 for a new 5.0-liter version of the same engine, this one making 429 horsepower.
Where the 4.6-liter earned EPA ratings of 16/24 mpg, the larger-displacement engine--coupled to a new eight-speed automatic--has been rated by the EPA at 15/23 mpg.No hybrid, electric or diesel versions of the Equus are planned for the American market.
Moving up in displacement pushes the Hyundai Equus' fuel economy down.
