EPA and DOE release annual Fuel Economy Guide with 2014 models

3 December 2013

The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Energy (DOE) are releasing the 2014 Fuel Economy Guide, providing consumers with a resource to identify and choose the most fuel efficient and low greenhouse gas emitting vehicles that meet their needs.

The guide provides “Top Ten” lists allowing consumers to see the most efficient advanced technology vehicles as well as the most efficient gasoline and diesel powered vehicles. Consumers will also find a broad range of information in the guide that can be helpful while shopping for a new vehicle—including an estimated annual fuel cost for each vehicle.

The estimate is based on the vehicle’s miles per gallon (mpg) rating and national estimates for annual mileage and fuel prices. An online version of the guide, available through www.fueleconomy.gov, allows consumers to enter local gasoline prices and typical driving habits to receive a personalized fuel cost estimate.

For the second consecutive year, the guide includes a 1-10 greenhouse gas rating for each model, providing a quick and easy way for consumers to identify vehicles with low greenhouse gas emissions.

Individual mileage will vary depending on factors such as driving style, high air conditioning usage, carrying extra weight and towing, and weather.
