Really, this announcement makes perfect sense. The Honda Civic is one of the most efficient, gasoline friendly cars on the roads and the Earth Dreams engine, a direct-injection engine, further increases the fuel economy of any car.
This is a great announcement and people are always looking for cars with the best fuel economy, so I thought it was interesting that it sounded like Honda was having to defend its decision by saying, “”Gasoline prices are stabilizing in the mid-$3-a-gallon range, and Detroit is selling quite a few pickups,” Iwamura said. “Yet while the average person sees those numbers, their income hasn’t risen that much. It’s wrong to say Americans don’t care about fuel economy. They care.”
Uh, yeah. WE CARE!
It looks like the revolutionary Earth Dreams engine should be installed in the 2015 Honda Civic. We’ll look forward to that!
