9. Chevrolet Impala - 525 Miles
Chevy’s soon-to-be-replaced Impala barely edged out the Nissan Maxima, topping its total driving range by just five miles. This automotive antelope features a 3.6-liter V6 and a six-speed automatic transmission. Don’t think this trio of sixes is the mark of the beast, it’s a really sweet combination as recently tested in the Buick LaCrosse.

The Impala can only lug around 17.5 gallons of fuel, second lowest in this comparison and a fair bit less than the Maxima. Thankfully it’s pretty efficient. The car delivers up to 30 miles per gallon on the highway (18 around town) giving it a theoretical maximum range of 525 miles.
