Chevrolet Camaro V-6: 19/30 mpg V-6 (automatic, coupe); 18/27 mpg (automatic, convertible); 17/28 mpg (manual)
Chevrolet Camaro V-8: 16/24 mpg (manual SS); 15/24 mpg (automatic SS); 14/19 mpg (manual ZL1); 12/18 mpg (automatic ZL1)
The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro is far more fuel-efficient than it looks--provided you stick with the base V-6, that is.
Considering how well the V-6 model performs, it's very good on gas--earning 19 mpg city, 30 mpg highway with the six-speed automatic; manual-transmission models earn 17/28 mpg.The V-8 SS scores just 15 or 16 mpg city and 24 mpg highway; ZL1 Camaros won't bring home any awards for saving the planet, but considering their awesome power ratings, it's not as low as it could be. For the 7.0-liter Z/28, gas mileage figures fall a bit to 13 mpg city, 19 mpg highway, and 15 mpg combined.
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.
The V-6 Camaro models are the best choice for the mileage-minded; although for their extreme horsepower, V-8s aren't bad.
