The '14-15 was initially rated at 46 highway, now it's 44.
Which I find funny, as it generally easily surpasses the 46 figure. The new EPA tests were supposed to make the ratings more realistic - looks like it further underestimates diesel fuel economy.

And the ECO MT's ratings which dropped from 42 to 40 highway.

I really do not pay too much attention to the EPA estimates, I have averaged 42.2 miles per gallon for first year of CTD ownership and almost 18k miles, I have had some highway extended trips, but it is mostly what I would refer to as combined driving, I normally drive within 5 mph of all speed limits. I think the combined number for my car was like 33 or something. When I had a 14 eco manual I averaged 39.0 mpg in similar driving over 22k miles, again well over the epa numbers.
