I found this noteworthy as it shows the media (CNN in this case) apparently bought off on the whole fuel economy focus rather than bashing GM for releasing a fuel-hungry sports car, which American's don't want.
More at link: http://money.cnn.com/galleries/2008/autos/0807/gallery.2010_chevrolet_camaro/index.htmlWhen unveiling new performance models, car companies usually boast about horsepower, engine size and expected zero-to-60 times.
But when General Motors unveiled the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro Monday afternoon, it was the car's fuel economy numbers that were front and center.
It's the return of a once-popular model that has been out of production since the 2002 model year. V6 versions, which GM expects will be the biggest sellers, are expected to get 26 miles per gallon on the highway. That's about the same as a V6 Ford Mustang, while boasting the same horsepower output as a V8 Mustang.
