EcoBoost Mustang Fuel Economy Figures Leak
Some may be disappointed to hear that the 2015 Ford Mustang is actually going to have worse fuel economy than it predecessor. This is largely due to the 2015 model being a bit heavier.
This info comes via leaked EPA data published on an internet forum. What are the actual numbers? The V6 engine gets 17 mpg city and 28 mpg highway. That's a 2 mpg drop in the city, and a 1 mpg drop for highway driving when compared to the previous generation Mustang.
Now turning to the four-cylinder EcoBoost engine. It gets 22 mpg city and 31 mpg highway, 26 mpg combined.
Can you be happy about these numbers? Are you upset that they are worse than the previous model, or do you care that much about one or two mpg of difference?
