We have compared the Dodge Charger to three different 2018 Chevrolet Camaro to see how fuel efficient it really is.
Camaro 3.6 L, 6 cyl, with an automatic transmission (S8) – regular gas get 19 MPG in the city, highway is 29MPG that’s a total of 23MPG combined
Camaro 6.2 L, 8 cyl, automatic transmission (S8) – with premium gasoline combined is 20MPG, city 17MPG and highway is only 27MPG
Camaro 6.2 L, 8 cyl, stander with a automatic transmission (S10), Supercharger- premium gasoline only. 21 MPG highway, 13 MPG city and the combined MPG is 15.
As you can see all of the 2018 Chargers are very fuel friendly. Compared to the Camaro the Charger is just as fuel saving. You can get a Dodge Charger starting out for around $29,000, but you can also save money by choosing a used Dodge Charger for sale in Olympia. That’s not bad at all for a family sport car.
