35mpg minimum by 2020...

http://www.detnews.com/apps/pbcs.dll...443/1148/rss25

Link from the oc site...all vehicles including suv's must have a 35mpg min by 2020...That leaves us another decade before these GC's become collectibles. Because when that time comes every single muscle car prior to will be worth $$$$$$$

The technology is already out there... its just a matter of industry competing to make it affordable. Free enterprise always finds a way, adapts, overcomes... its beautiful

President Bush today praised the energy bill the Senate approved late Thursday night and urged the House to quickly pass the measure that hikes automobile fuel efficiency requirements by 40 percent to an industry fleet-wide average of 35 miles per gallon.

It an average throughout the manufactures lineup. It will definitely change things in the yrs to come, but may not eliminate all high hp vehicles. I hope anyways. I don't get that we are being forced to buy efficient vehicles if we don't want too?

Tell me how we can get 35mpg and achieve SRT8 levels of performance from a 4800lb suv shaped like a brick as of right now?
Capatalism may rock, but it can't bend let alone break the rules of physics.

Did I miss something? I read that fleet fuel economy (or all the makes/models a manufacturer makes/sells combined and averaged in a given year) needs to be 35mpg. Not that all vehicles need to make 35mpg.

It's possible, but when this day comes there either won't be recoverable oil left, or it will cost $250 p/gallon.

Automobiles have horrible efficiency, the ratio of net work output to gross work input.

Electric Motors, alternative fuel sources, engine technology, friction reduction (engine, rolling friction, drvietrain, wind resistance), alternative materials to make cars lighter, new designs, and of course tehnology-to-come.

For god sakes do I have to put you in a high-chair and spoon-feed it to you??? Its possible. 100 years ago it was PFM just to turn a lightbulb on or see the wright brothers fly, yet still we have Nay-sayers that say.."oooh lawdie!!! duh laws of physics just can't be overcome to get 35mpg!!!"

pffffftttttt.... just wait

You said it's (35mpg from an GCSRT8) possible now, and I assure you it's quite simply not. Ten years from now, I highly doubt it as well, and if it is possible the price tag is going to be ridiculous.
If it were possible now, you'd be seeing it, now.
