Official 2015 Ford Mustang Fuel Economy Ratings

The official 2015 Ford Mustang fuel economy ratings have been leaked, and although the numbers aren’t coming directly from Ford, we have reason to believe that the numbers are completely accurate. Window stickers for a few of the upcoming models of the Mustang have been discovered, and the stickers have the full details about how much gas two of the three engines will need require.

Unfortunately the fuel economy ratings for the V8-equipped Ford Mustang haven’t been discovered yet, but for the four- and six-cylinder options, we now know what to expect. As we have been reporting here on the Matt Ford blog, the smaller displacement 2.7-liter turbocharged four-cylinder, which is brand-new for the 2015 model year, will be the most efficient of the powertrain options.

According to the stickers, the turbo-four will be able to return ratings of 22 mpg in the city and 31 mpg on the highway, making it one of the most efficient engines of the Mustang’s long standing history. The ratings are achieved by the combination of the four piston engine and the manual transmission which will come standard in the pony car. Ford’s EcoBoost technology, which is hard at work in the engine, is also one of the many reasons that the engine is able to achieve such impressive numbers.

The base V6 engine of the Mustang also delivers some appealing ratings, and while they’re not as high as those achieved by the four-cylinder Eco-Boost engine, they’re still quite spectacular. Even when firing on all six cylinders, the V6-equipped pony car is able to travel up to 17 mpg in the city and 28 mpg on the highway when the manual gearbox is installed. With the automatic transmission the highway rating remains the same, but at 19 miles to the gallon, city driving is slightly more efficient.

Once again, official fuel economy ratings for the 5.0-liter V8 have not been announced yet, but it likely won’t be long before they’re made known. To get the confirmed ratings, be sure to check back here on the Matt Ford blog where we will have them provided for you as soon as they’re leaked or officially announced. In the meantime, you can learn more about the engines of the upcoming pony car with our post on the official 2015 Ford Mustang power ratings.
