U.S. 2014 Fuel Economy Guide Released

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the Department of Energy (DOE) recently released 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 2014 models include efficient and low-emission vehicles in a variety of classes and sizes.

“For American families, the financial and environmental bottom line are high priorities when shopping for a new vehicle,” said Gina McCarthy, administrator. “This year’s guide is not just about how the latest models stack up against each other; it’s about providing people the best information possible to make smart decisions affecting their pocketbooks and the planet.”

“The Energy Department is committed to building a strong 21st century transportation sector that cuts harmful pollution, saves consumers money and leads to a more sustainable energy future,” said Ernest Moniz, Energy secretary. “By providing reliable, user-friendly fuel economy information, the ‘Fuel Economy Guide’ is helping Americans choose the right fuel-efficient vehicle for their family and business and save money at the pump.”

The guide provides “Top Ten” lists that can allow 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 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.
