2014 Chevrolet SS Fuel Economy

5.0
Fuel Economy

The 2014 Chevrolet SS isn't vying for family sedan duty (that's the Malibu or Impala), and despite its huge 6.2-liter V-8 it omits fuel-saving technology like GM's Active Fuel Management, or engine stop-start. It's blissfully, it seems, a guzzler.

The bright side, as we've noticed from a number of other vehicles with very large-displacement engines, is that you likely won't see much lower than the EPA ratings--even when you drive the SS hard. On the other hand, it would require quite the magical tailwind to approach 30 mpg.

With mileage in the teens, the 2014 Chevy SS is very thirsty (and expensive) as a daily driver.

In a first drive opportunity, our car was averaging more than 16 mpg on a 65-mile, mostly uphill loop, then barely 20 on a 75-mile, mostly downhill loop that included some more reserved expressway-and-boulevard driving.
