Everything is wrong in your post except for the increased adoption of turbo’d engines (which have already been around for ~80 years).
No, I am trying to be more detail oriented rather than be looking at a big picture, sorry about my thinking orientation right there


Well I do wanna ask, does programming a car with 10+ different driving modes help the car balance out certain rates of fluid consumption anyways? Particularly the eco modes

Eco modes generally change throttle mapping and potentially enable “auto start/stop” functionality. Most cars in city driving waste fuel idling, and this provides up to a 15% increase in fuel economy.

No it's not. Who would bet money on the future of indefinite cheap gasoline and loose pollution controls? Obviously not the automakers who have an eye towards a global market. Don't worry, trucks and SUVs will still be big sellers, although more efficient as time goes on.

People can't seem to grasp the fact that we wont have cheap and plentiful gas forever, the fuel efficiency pays for itself. How soon they forget $4 a gallon and gas station lines, very short sighted.
