New Chevy Cobalt XFE Delivers 36 MPG on the Highway

May 01, 2008

DETROIT– The new Chevy Cobalt XFE delivers 36 mpg in highway driving. The Cobalt XFE — for Xtra Fuel Economy — includes LS and 1LT coupe and sedan models with the manual transmission. It uses revised engine calibration, low rolling-resistance tires, a new, 3.74:1 final drive ratio, and other technologies to achieve an EPA-estimated mileage rating of 25 mpg in the city and 36 on the highway — an improvement of more than nine percent over the previous highway mileage.

The new, higher-efficiency Cobalts are identified at a glance with XFE badges on the trunk lid. Customers can also verify the model they're shopping is the higher-mileage model by checking for the "36 mpg" designation on the window sticker.

Like all U.S. market Cobalt models, XFE editions come standard with:

  • Head curtain side-impact airbags.
  • Air conditioning.
  • XM satellite radio.
  • AM/FM radio with CD and MP3 playback.
  • Rear defogger.
  • Center console with two power outlets.

The Cobalt XFE engine is powered by a 2.2L Ecotec engine that delivers excellent performance in conjunction with the class-leading fuel economy. The Ecotec engine also features numerous long-life maintenance items that help reduce ownership costs.
