Most Fuel Efficient Crossovers

It wasn’t that long ago that the typical family-oriented passenger car was notably more fuel-efficient than the average SUV. Today, the efficiency gap between the two vehicle types is much smaller than it used to be. Crossover SUVs–those based on passenger-car chassis instead of truck-like body-on-frame architectures–have proliferated, and many new SUV models have gotten smaller and lighter while still retaining an extra degree of cargo room and functionality over their comparable passenger-car counterparts.

Consumer Guide Automotive It’s not just about ROI any more.

Back in the 1970s, diesels became attractive for passenger vehicles due to their superior fuel economy, and in some cases, the lower price of diesel fuel. As diesels often cost significantly more than a gas engine – and also suffered from noisy operation and meager power output – it was a diesel’s fuel-cost savings over time that accounted for their appealing Return On Investment.

But lower per-mile fuel costs are no longer a diesel’s only attraction.

Pickup Truck Diesels

In the wake of the Volkswagen emissions scandal known colloquially as Dieselgate, German automakers have almost completely discontinued offering their diesel-engine models in the United States–at least for the time being.
