The EPA-rated figures are finally out, and it looks like the 2015 Mustang is thirstier than the model it replaces for corresponding trims. Note, since the four-cylinder Mustang EcoBoost is all-new for 2015, there’s no previous model to compare it with. Predictably, it’s the most fuel efficient of the bunch.
Listed below are EPA-rated fuel economy figures in miles per gallon for city, combined and highway measures:
2015 Ford Mustang
- 2015 Mustang EcoBoost (manual): 22/26/31
- 2015 Mustang EcoBoost (automatic): 21/25/32
- 2015 Mustang V-6 (manual): 17/21/28
- 2015 Mustang V-6 (automatic): 19/22/28
- 2015 Mustang GT (manual): 15/19/25
- 2015 Mustang GT (automatic): 16/19/25
2014 Ford Mustang
- 2014 Mustang V-6 (manual): 19/22/29
- 2014 Mustang V-6 (automatic): 19/23/31
- 2014 Mustang GT (manual): 15/19/26
- 2014 Mustang GT (automatic): 18/20/25
As you can see, the base Mustang V-6 equipped with a manual is 2 mpg worse off in the city for the 2015 model, and the same is true for the Mustang GT equipped with an automatic. Of course, there is a lot more tech packed into the 2015 Mustang, and we’re sure performance will be better too.
Production of the 2015 Ford Mustang got underway at the car’s Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Michigan late last month. The first examples arrive in showrooms in November, priced from $24,425 for the base Mustang V-6. The Mustang EcoBoost will set you back $25,995 while the Mustang GT will cost you $32,925. All prices include shipping.
