Ecoboost Mustang MPG released (EPA data)

The 2015 Mustang EPA ratings so far..

Mustang EcoBoost (manual): City 22 / Highway 31
V6 Mustang (manual): City 17 / Highway 28
V6 Mustang (auto): City 19 / Highway 28


2014 V6 manual: City 19 / Highway 29
2014 V6 auto: City 19 / Highway 31

Looks like the Ecoboost isn't that much more fuel efficient than a 2014 3.7 V6.

That also brings up the question of why the MPG drop on the 3.7's and how bad will the GT be?

So far, not impressed at all with the 2015 Mustang.

Yeah, but Ford hopes the Euros will get the warm fuzzies over that 4 banger.

European or not, it sucks.

For example:

Ford's own Focus RS500, it makes 345 hp, 340 tq and gets 28.5 MPG average.

Audi RS3 makes over 340 hp, 330 tq and gets 26 MPG average.

BMW M135i, makes 316 hp, 332 tq and gets 33.5 MPG average.


This car will easily be outclassed and under perform compared to the European competition, which will cost very similarly.

No one will see those numbers for the turbo. People buying it are looking for a GT experience and saving $10k In the process. Which won't happen, but they will have their foot in it constantly and will never see 22 mpg city.


Chevy runs deep, don't step in Chevy.

Huh? The mpg ratings for the 2011-2014 V6 Mustangs has always been in favor of the autos over the manual. Ish put it right there in his first post. Yeah, it's unusual, but this is not the first time.


Anyway, I am very disappointed in these numbers. The 3.7L got tuned down from 305 to 300 hp, but the fuel economy rating also went down? And the Ecoboost gets the same mpgs that the 3.7L used to get? Makes no sense.
