2013 Chevrolet Camaro Fuel Economy

7.0
On Fuel Economy

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.

If you're looking for an efficient Camaro, the V-6 is the best choice; V-8 versions aren't bad, given their extreme horsepower.

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.
