It amazes me how the EPA can be so close and yet so far off on certain vehicles on mileage ratings. The fact that they keep altering the identical same vehicles with the only difference being the model year is telling. Having driven numerous rental cars the EPA seems to be close to spot on for Toyotas, Hondas and Nissans. GM’s and the South Korean twins can see up to 8 MPG off on highway drives
This. My 3.6 Enclave AWD is rated at 25 mpg highway. I just did a 1000 mile road trip (Boston to DC and back) and averaged 27.0 mpg both ways with adaptive cruise set at 75mph. The trip included mountains in PA and construction. I’m amazed. Going to Cape Cod and back I usually see 29 down and 25 back, so I guess the 27 is to be expected.
So, when may a customer order a 2022 CT4 or CT5? September?
Ordered a 2021 CT5V in late February to find out that it will not be built until September, maybe early October due to plant building only Camaro’s and Nighthawks. No demand or high profit regarding CT 4 and 5’s. Waiting seven months for build, before delivery time to dealer, indicates the lack of respect gm shows to their customers. Dealer is probably hoping that I cancel my order, so he can sell the car for more money to the next person.
Worse mph than Deville, and with little leg room to boot.
