Chevrolet is one car manufacturer that has stepped forward with an innovative solution, the Chevy Cruze Eco. Being praised as America's most fuel efficient gasoline powered vehicle, the car boasts an impressive 42 highway miles per gallon. To achieve better mileage without sacrificing performance or quality, engineers have enhanced the aerodynamics, reduced mass and optimized power train.
