FJ Cruiser to Mustang 5.0

My daily commute is about 60 miles a day. I'm looking to get a slightly more fuel efficient and sporty vehicle (that is American). I've been looking at Mustang GT's and it seems like a pretty decent package. 2013 used GT for 28K. Was wondering has anyone made this switch and would the mpg difference be significant!

My wife had an FJ Cruiser and I have a 14 GT. Seems pretty similar on mileage to me. I'm averaging about 18mpg.

28k for a used 13 seems high. My 14 was 28k brand new. Is that a premium? Mine is not.

Great fun car to drive and own. But significant better mpg than an FJ, I doubt that.

I honestly average close to 22 with my 2013 GT. The FJ cruiser we had before we would average around 18.

I loved my FJ, but this is a totally different animal.

I have both an FJC and a 5.0 Mustang. Around town, I get about the same mileage in the 18-19 range. On the freeway the Mustang does better, the best I have gotten was 26 and it averages about 22-24. The FJC by contrast tops out at 22 downhill with a tailwind. For full disclosure, I have a 3" All-Pro lift, full skid plates, rock rails and considerably larger than stock BFG AT T/AKOs, so its not exactly a light setup

I'll leave this picture here.. Also 28k is alot if its not premium, trac pac, with some add ons. I bought my 2012 fully loaded with everything but a glass roof, spoiler, and brembos for less than that in 2012.

Drive a mustang right and you'll see 25mpg highway. That's prolly around 65-70 mph. Fj cruisers are gay anyway
