New CAFE Standards: 42 MPG Cars, 26 MPG Trucks by 2016

According to reports from both the New York Times and Politico, the Obama Administration plans to announce new CAFE regulations tomorrow that will finally reconcile both federal and state standards. The plan is expected to combine California's strict emission rules with the federal rule, raising the national fleet mileage to around 42 mpg for cars and approximately 26 mpg for light trucks by 2016 – an increase over the current standards of 27.5 mpg for cars and 24 mpg for trucks.

By the way this is infuriating. Why does California get to determine what the rest of the country has to abide by... When does one state get recognized as the majority.

This doesn't necessarily have to do with "global warming". It's also to rid our dependence of foreign oil.

Looks like we'll be buying a lot more diesels...

Seriously, 7 years to get 15mpg more? That's asking a little much isn't it?

Not so, says a CARB spokesman: "We are by no means interested in banning or restricting car colors." For now, CARB is sticking with the reflective glass portion of the initiative, which would add a reflective clear coat to windows and $31-$50 to the price of a new car, and is taking public comments on the proposed new rules. Thanks for the tip, Jason

Well the Vette and the Charger / Challenger lines are shut. The gun is not pointed at the SS's engine.

I actually would like to see a 4 cyl 2011+ Camaro LC (low cost lol). (Hides behind chicken wire from beer bottles and tomatoes...)

If I got speeding tickets in my stock 140 hp 305 2bbl a 180+ HP 4 banger could push the car along just fine. (hides behind chicken wire again)...

I saw somewhere a while back that there had been a pretty substantial reduction in gasoline consumption and number of cars on the roads in California. It seems that fewer and fewer people there still have a job. If California continues to be the "prototype" and example for the rest of the country we could be headed for............................................... ....

The rumor is 42 for cars and 26 for trucks. Nothing is confirmed

I assume that this could be merged with:
