2015 Ford Mustang Fuel Economy Figures Released

Ever since the sixth generation of the iconic pony car debuted in December, 2013, fans of the Ford Mustang were served with tiny bits of information about their wish list ride. We know how much oomph it packs, we know there's a Shelby GT350 in the works with a 5.2-liter N/A V8 under the hood, weight, options, the lot, but one detail eluded us until now - the fuel economy.

But we're happy to announce that the Department of Energy released the official EPA ratings for all three 2015 Ford Mustang variants available at the present moment and things don't look good for the entry-level model and its 3.7-liter six-cylinder mill.

Like everyone expected, the mid-range EcoBoost is the sipper of the lot, achieving 22 mpg city and 31 mpg highway when mated with the six-speed stick shift. With the automatic, you're looking at 21 mpg in the city and 32 mpg out on the open road.

Now comes the bad news. Although it's 5 ponies down on the 2014 model year, the 2015 Mustang V6 is able to return 17 mpg city / 28 mpg highway with the manual. By comparison, the 2014 Stang does 19 mpg city / 29 mpg highway. When mated to the automatic, the 2015 Ford Mustang with the 3.7-liter V6 returns 19 mpg city / 28 mpg highway, 3 mpg highway down on the 2014 model year.

Last but not least, the 5-liter Coyote V8 and its 435 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. Yes, it has Boss 302 valve springs and connecting rods, bigger intake and exhaust valves, but still, it's not a big drinker considering what sort of punch it gives you. The six-speed manual variant will return 15 mpg city / 25 mpg highway, while the automatic improves city mileage by 1 mpg. If you're in the market for an all-new Ford Mustang, the model is already on sale, priced from $24,425 for the base V6 with the stick shift.
