Gotta burn a lot more fuel to save the environment... I'm sure the next gen will be leaps and bounds better.

This is the 'next gen' (and a long time coming) and very disappointing.

I should have clarified. Perhaps the next incarnation will be better. Changes in emissions strategies always bring disastrous results. At least it appears they ditched that foolish EGR!!
