Chevy Camaro EPA Fuel Economy: How The Muscle Stacks Up

We're in Michigan today to drive the 2010 Chevy Camaro. First news? V6 gets 18 MPG city, 29 MPG highway. The V8? 16 city, 24 highway. More details below and how the competition stacks up.

You won't be able to get any driving impressions out of us until 6:00 PM EST Friday, but for the moment we can report the EPA has officially rated the V6 Camaro at a Muscle Car War-topping 29 MPG on the highway. For the big ol' V8, as you'd expect, the fuel economy's a bit lower, but still an impressive 16 MPG in the city and 24 on the highway. So here's how all three muscular muscle cars from Detroit officially stack up:
