    Quick thought, why doesn't BeamNG have a modern muscle car? (Challenger, Mustang, ect.) I personally would have liked to see that over another older muscle car. Don't get me wrong, I love big v8 old school muscle cars, but I think BeamNG needs a more modern muscle car. 0.18 Possibly?

    I mentioned that it has been. However, I honestly think someone just got ovezealous while writing that statement. I was skeptical when we heard it with that interview around the time the bus came out, I was skeptical when the 0.15 devblog came out, and I still am. Sure we could see something in the next 4.5 months, but I wouldn't be surprised if we do not. Yes they have been working on some prototypes which they might be able to put in. But I don't think we should assume it will be.

    There's a ton the game needs content wise, but the old promised content needs to be finished and older content brought up to current standards first. I assume the Wendover will come immediately after the Bluebuck because they probably just want that controversial car over and done with. Plus, there isn't much to add for it. A lot of the LeGran powertrain with little non-factory content, so it should be quick to produce.

    One thing about that. When the K-series in particular was released, it was, as far as I can remember, said to be in an incomplete state, with more coming down the pike. That more never came. It is entirely possible that variants like the Kc6tx Trackday will get different engines in the future - remember also the custom & off-road Gavrils when the 5.5L V8 was added to the game.

    However I will admit that the idea of a V8 or especially a V10 in what is, as far as I know, a 3-series-size car, is more in tune with the previous decade when it was still possible to have some differentiation between makes and models, rather than the current decade where even performance cars must pretend to be green.

    Basing a modern American car off a charger would kill 3 birds with one stone. It would fill the roles or modern American sedan, modern muscle car, and modern American police car.

    A few somewhat decent cars in a sea of downsized, turbocharged sameness. Even two of those have replaced their NA V6 base models with turbo I4s, and the one that hasn't is practically a holdover from the previous decade anyway.

    It's not "green," it's cheaper to make.

    My only comment on the era of i4 Turbos is that, in testing they are infact more fuel efficient, but in reality its impossible to reach those numbers.

    My Bmw for instance comes with a 2 liter i4 and supposedly gets 23 city 34 highway, 27 combined and let me tell you, its a bunch of lies. Its getting 15 at best. The problem is even worse when i compared with the mileage a friend was getting on a 325i (Big 3L i6) getting 22mpg. And even worse when compared witht he mileage im getting with a Chevy Tahoe. That truck consumes the same amount of fuel, while having an N/A 5.3L V8.

    A big example of this and how car makers are not even going away from downsizing is the Fiat Twinair engine. It was almost impossible to get the EPA numbers without driving like a granny.

    I love how fuel efficient GM trucks are. With careful driving, I've managed to get Silverados and Tahoes up to 25+ mpgs

    Here I am with my 6mpg Jeep...

    I've only been in a couple of vehicle's with i4's, one of which was a Focus ST which was very fun. The three other's were applicance style sedans, wich ranged from "fine" to downright "this isn't okay". I certainly would like to know what it's like to drive something bigger with a small modern engine, like the Ranger/Bronco.

    I have you all beat

    06' Prius, 40 mpg. 51 mpg with the A/C off.
    The most efficient gas powered car I've driven was a 2019 Altima which my dad said got around 40 ish on the highway.

    Yep. I actually had the MPG display at 999, but there was a short uphill part, so I ended the trip at only 250 MPG. In terms of actually realistic MPG, my 2007 Chrysler Pacifica manages about 28 MPG highway, and up to 35 if I stick close to semis. It gets about 17 MPG city though.

    Pacifica's that good? I have a 2006, I've never really noticed it get above 25 or so. Maybe it's cause the Florida heat necessitates AC on high.

    This week, hopefully. Ideally tomorrow, but I'm not so sure that will happen. :p

    My "hypermiling" experience was hitting 30 MPG in a 2010 Toyota Highlander Hybrid. Decent gas mileage for a sizable SUV, especially so because it usually maxes out at about 27 highway.
