Automotive News

DETROIT--The Chevrolet Camaro, which started production last week in Canada, carries a best-in-class fuel economy rating of 29 mpg on the highway--2 mpg higher than General Motors had estimated. The EPA has certified the base model V-6 Camaro at 17 mpg in the city and 29 on the highway, putting the Camaro ahead of its two rivals, the Ford Mustang and Dodge Challenger. A version of the 2009 Mustang comes close at 26 mpg/highway.

The V-6 model could broaden the Camaro's appeal among buyers who like the car but worry about $4-a-gallon gasoline.
