Default Outlook's Fuel Economy Gets Even Better for '09

A new story entry has been added:

[drupal=2423]Outlook's Fuel Economy Gets Even Better for '09[/drupal]

Quote:
Saturn revealed via its ImSaturn blog that the 2009 Outlook, which will come equipped with a new General Motors 3.6L direct injection six-cylinder engine, will offer both more horsepower and better fuel economy than in past model years. The new powerplant boosts horsepower ratings in the crossover (up to 288 in XR models and 281 in the XE).

2008 AURA XE
Default Re: Outlook's Fuel Economy Gets Even Better for '09

The Vue desperately need something like that in 2008 (plus a diet) ... mine couldn't even meet it's posted 16/22 numbers after 18k miles and switching to Mobil 1 ... awful for a compact SUV. I've since dumped the Vue for an Aura, which not even broken-in yet, is easily meeting the economy rating under the same driving conditions.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

2007 Outlook XR
Default Re: Outlook's Fuel Economy Gets Even Better for '09

My 2007 XR AWD gets 18 MPG around town and 23 MPG (sometimes better) on trips. For the trips I drive 65 to 70 MPH. It is to be noted that in Colorado the max speed in the mountains is only 65 MPH.

On the plains at 70 MPH (and not driving at 75 MPH), that is only 50 miles in 10 hours of driving. I will take my 23 MPG and 50 miles more for the 10 hour drive.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Default Re: Outlook's Fuel Economy Gets Even Better for '09

I agree with 4myoutlook. We also have an 07 XR AWD and live in Colorado. Mileage is very similar. Also noted a distinct MPG drop-off over 70 mph. In addition, it is pretty clear that I cannot drive our Outlook better than the cruise control for getting good fuel economy (I usually can). GM did a good job here. We drove 7 of us from the Colorado front range to Laramie, WY (2500 ft elevation gain) and got 22 mpg round-trip in trailer-tow mode. No complaints.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
