The V6 model's economy is down due to axle ratio change and slightly more weight. Gone is the performance hampering 2.73, which, with the automatic transmission in the current gen, yields 31 mpg on the highway. My auto vert with the 2.73 gets 30-31 on the highway. I love that part about the car, but I would have opted for a 3.31 axle if the option was there for the vert. I believe the standard axle ratio on the 15 models is 3.15.
