When Ford announced the engine updates for the 2011 Ford Mustang, the automaker touted the pony car’s all-new 3.7-liter V6 engine for being able to produce 305 horsepower and still garner 30 miles per gallon on the highway – beating the 2010 Chevy Camaro‘s already impressive 304 horsepower, 29 mpg engine. Now official ratings from the EPA are in and they further solidify Ford’s leading edge.
Official results from the EPA certify that the 2011 Ford Mustang earns 31 mpg on the highway and 19 mpg in the city when equipped with the 3.7-liter engine mated to the available six speed automatic transmission. The standard six speed manual gearbox will help the Mustang achieve 30 mpg highway/19 mpg city.
With more than 11,000 orders for the 2011 Mustang already in, it seems that the model’s new engines were just what enthusiasts have been waiting for. As the most fuel efficient Mustang ever produced, Mustang buyers can now have stellar performance without having to pay a fortune for it at the pump.
“At no other time in Mustang’s history – for that matter, in automotive history – have we been able to talk about 305 horsepower and 31 miles per gallon. The Mustang truly is a no-compromises sports car,” said Derrick Kuzak, Ford group vice president, Global Product Development.
The new 2011 Ford Mustang reaches showrooms like Warner Robins GA Ford this spring. With high demand for this new model already climbing, Meridian Ford recommends that potential buyers should get in line now.
