    CAFE.....Expecting an Announcement Today.

    It will be above the current 27.5 MPG but below the current future standards.

    Probably too late for that one. But it's pretty safe to say that 54.5 MPG by 2025 is dead. Thank goodness.

    We can't all afford electric cars or aluminum everything pickup trucks with 135 speed transmissions and twin turbo I-4 engines with cylinder deactivation.

    Just because Detroit CAN build them doesn't mean they should or that consumers would buy them.

    Good riddance. 54.5 MPG goal by 2025 is straight out of unicorn and rainbow land. No possible way the average consumer can afford the kind of cars that could reach those goals without major changes in their driving habits and lifestyle.

    Amen. I prefer to call 54.5 fitty-four forty or fight! But at any rate, without air cars and sailcars, fitty-four forty was the stuff of the functionally insane and the operational mole.

    54.5 MPG, even as a fleetwide average, and even under the CAFE methodology of FE rating, was utterly ridiculous.

    Yes the mandate was stupid. People will want more higher mileage just by making them. Forcing the hand of the automakers to achieve a goal that was not even possible with all the safety features in cars.

    Exactly. Only rubes drive cars. You need mass transit or a bicycle, comrade.
