The 22 Thirstiest Domestic Cars That Will Convince People To Go Electric

High fuel consumption is often likened to high performance cars. It is true that most high performance cars are indeed thirsty when it comes to fuel consumption. For example, the Aston Martin Virage Coupe only manages a combined MPG of 18.8, the Aston Martin DBS Coupe manages a combined MPG of 17.2, the Ferrari FF Coupe manages a combined MPG of 17.3 and the Lamborghini Aventador Coupe manages a combined MPG of 17.7.

However, it is not all the time that high performance cars are the thirstiest. Here in the States, we have many cars that are thirsty, but do not fit the bill of high performance cars. An example is the 2018 Infiniti QX80 AWD. This car has an average MPG rating of 15. It manages 13 miles per gallon in the city and 19 miles per gallon on the highway. Another example is the 2017 Dodge Durango R/T, which has an average MPG rating of 17. It manages 14 miles per gallon in the city and 22 miles per gallon on the highway. We also have the 2017 GMC Acadia Denali, which has an average MPG rating of 20. It manages 18 miles per gallon in the city and 25 miles per gallon on the highway.
