Even though gas prices have been, on average, much lower across the country in recent months, gas mileage will still play a huge role when deciding which new vehicle is right for you.
Whether you’re looking for a muscle car, minivan, or efficient compact vehicle, Dodge offers great models for those seeking better fuel economy.
The 2016 Dodge Challenger gets an average 17-20 miles to the gallon. This number will vary depending on which engine type you choose for your vehicle, but many Challenger options are available with features that increase its fuel economy. For example, this vehicle, when bought with the 6.4L V8 HEMI engine, has the capability to reduce the engine to four active cylinders when the full eight cylinders aren’t being used, thus saving on fuel.
The Grand Caravan receives an estimated 17 mpg in the city and 25 mpg during highway travel, putting it on equal ground when compared to other minivans. Like the Challenger, certain models of the Grand Caravan have technologies that can increase fuel economy. The Grand Caravan gives its driver the ability to adjust engine timing and shifts in transmission straight from the dashboard. Kelley Blue Book recommends the 3.6 Liter V6 engine for the combined best operation and fuel economy.
The Dart ranks as the Dodge model with the highest overall gas mileage at an average between 27 and 29 mpg. This number can increase up to 36-41 highway mpg depending on which size liter engine you choose. All 2016 Dodge Dart engines are also available with Variable Valve Timing, a favorite feature by Kelley Blue Book. This factor allows the engines to use energy more efficiently, making a sizeable difference where fuel is concerned.
