The Environmental Protection Agency found that cars and light trucks built during the 2013 model year got an average of 24.1 miles to the gallon. That’s still less than halfway to the EPA and Department of Transportation’s goal set back in 2012, but it beats the roughly 19 miles per gallon that the Department of Transportation measured for the same pool of vehicles in 1995. It’s also closing in on double the average mileage of the light-duty vehicles on U.S. roads in 1980.
The least efficient average cars in the good old U.S. of A?
- Nissan Xterra – 19 mpg
- Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat – 17.5 mpg
- Ford Expedition EL 4WD – 16 mpg
- Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT 4WD – 16 mpg

Not as bad as the Bentley Mulsanne (13), Ferrari FF (13) or the multi-million dollar Bugatti Veyron (10), but bad enough.
