Musclecars can give the impression of poor fuel economy on looks alone. For some versions of the Chevy Camaro, that's simply not the case.
The V-8-powered SS and ZL1 Camaros won't bring home any awards for saving the planet, though they're fairly efficient for their enormous power ratings. The V-8 SS scores just 15-16 mpg city and 24 mpg highway, depending on the transmission chosen, for example.
The ZL1's prodigious 580-horsepower output results in fairly low gas mileage ratings: the EPA pegs the manual at 14/19 mpg and the automatic at 12/18 mpg, no matter which body style is chosen.
The V-6 Camaro, though, does very well, given the car's sporty nature. When equipped with the six-speed automatic transmission, the coupe rates as high as 19 mpg city and 30 mpg highway, with manual-transmission models earning 17/28-mpg ratings.
