WASHINGTON (Dec. 4, 2013) — The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) have issued their latest Fuel Economy Guide, covering vehicles for model year 2014.
The guide is designed to provide U.S. consumers with a useful barometer to which cars are the most fuel-efficient and have the lowest greenhouse gas emissions, the agencies said.
"For American families, the financial and environmental bottom lines are high priorities when shopping for a new vehicle," said EPA Administrator Gina McCarthy in a press release. "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."
Among other things, the guide provides "Top Ten" lists showing consumers the most fuel-efficient vehicles in the gasoline-powered, diesel-powered and advanced technology categories. It also provides an estimated annual fuel cost for each vehicle, based on the vehicle's mpg rating and national estimates for annual mileage and fuel prices.
EPA and DOE will update the guide as more information on 2014 vehicles becomes available. To find a complete version of the guide, go to the fuel economy website or click here to download to mobile devices.
