The SVT may have been a little lighter (139lbs less than a new SE), but its EPA rating is only 18 city/26 highway... compared to 26/36 for the 5-speed SE that weighs almost the same and has almost as much horsepower and.more torque (146 lb-ft, not 516).slower and heavier then I would have expected for a new car. I just looked up the curb weight of a stock SVT google said 2780lbs. Aren't thy moving backwards in quest for economy?
The reason I compared the SVT to the SE 5-speed is because it gets the WORST EPA mileage rating of the new lineup... the Titanium, whose specs are in the picture, gets better mileage than the SE 5-speed.I saw the 3115 lbs in your the picture of the specs above, no idea which model it was. imagine the MPG and performence of a lighter loaded car.
The Titanium may be slower due to the higher curb weight and bigger wheels.These numbers seem off... I've personally logged a 0-60 time of 7.6 seconds in my SE hatch and have seen as low as 7.3 seconds shown in reviews. No clue about a quarter mile time yet, but assuming I can get as good or better shifts out of her (7.6 was in sport mode) as I did doing my 0-60 I see no reason I can't break 16 seconds.
Also, their observed mileage seems decent, but it could be better... My newest tank is giving me a 33.1mpg average with about 85% city and 15% highway driving. And this is without really babying it in-city.
I have yet to test the supposedly 118mph limied speed, but I also haven't been anywhere I felt safe going more than 90 yet...
