Taming Godzilla

Fuel economy is rated 16/23 mpg city/highway, which is impressive when you consider performance. However, during a week of testing both around town and in bumper-to-bumper commutes, I averaged a rather unsettling 13 mpg. Thanks to the rigid suspension, drivers will feel every road imperfection, hear every pebble they kick up and curse any concrete highway they're forced to travel.Ian Merritt/ photo
