All the talk nowadays is about the gas prices, constantly there are brands that are not only trying to come up with a car or truck that does not run on gas at all, but they are inventing new trucks that have great miles per gallon (mpg). GM has recently come out with a new truck mpg of thirty; they are also planning on coming out in 2011 with a truck that has thirty five miles per gallon.

General Motors is pushing their production team to the fullest to fill the showrooms with great trucks. The estimated time of a new truck with an estimated mpg of thirty five was 2020, but they are speeding it up to get it into the showrooms by 2011.

Hybrids are becoming quite a popular type of truck or car as well, with more and more companies producing all different types of hybrids; from cars and trucks that are completely neutral, to those that are half gas, half electric. General Motors, Ford, Chrysler are all working extremely hard to come up with a new way of thinking and designing their vehicles to meet the consumers demand for good estimated miles per gallon.

There are several engines a truck can possess, most heavier trucks use four stroke turbo intercooler diesel engines, although there are alternatives. Huge off-highway trucks use locomotive-type engines such as a V12 Detroit Diesel two stroke engine. North American built highway trucks nearly always have an engine built by a third party company, such as CAT or Detroit Diesel. The engine is not just the heart of the vehicle but what type of engine and also what condition it is in dictates how many miles per gallon the truck will get.

There are many ways an individual can use their new truck's current mile per gallon to their advantage. Rapid speeding and braking using and wastes more gas, so driving safely will in the end save a consumer up to thirty-three percent more gas. Also, any speeding can only waste more gas; you can safely assume that for each 5 mph you drive over 60 mph it is like paying an additional $0.30 per gallon for gas.

While new truck mpg may be better than an older truck, it all gets down to what type of engine is under the hood. A new truck might have a newer engine, but it could be bigger and therefore could use more gas, while an older truck might have a smaller engine and will use less gas.

Most of the newer truck engines now get much better mileage than previous older ones, but that being said, driving habits can save hundreds of dollars in fuel costs. Newer big trucks are designed to be much more aerodynamic, because wind resistance plays a major roll in the fuel economy of large vehicles.
