2010 Chevrolet Camaro gets 29 mpg

The modern pony-car wars are heating up, and the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro has notched its first victory.

The new Chevy sports car has earned an EPA rating of 29 mpg on the highway--beating even General Motors’ estimates of 27 mpg. That’s for the V6 Camaro with an automatic, and it bests similarly outfitted Ford Mustangs and Dodge Challengers.

The V6 version of the Mustang gets 26 mpg in highway driving, and the Challenger is rated at 25 mpg.

But the real gap is in horsepower, where the Camaro gets 304 hp from a direct-injection, 3.6-liter V6. That’s far ahead of the Mustang’s 210-hp unit and the Challenger’s 250 hp.

Camaro production started today, and Chevy has 14,000 orders for the car, which will hit showrooms in April.

More Camaro mpg figures:

-- In the city, the V6 Camaro with an automatic gets 18 mpg. With a manual, it drops to 17 mpg.

-- The Camaro SS gets 16 city/25 highway with an automatic, and 16/24 with a manual.
