The 2015 Ford Mustang is the latest generation of an old classic from Ford. The Mustang has been throughout the years an icon. It was the affordable sports car as well as the track hungry beast. The current, 2015 Mustang is all of those things, mixed together in a great blend.
Under the Hood and Fuel Economy
The base model will start at around 24 thousand dollars for the V6. For the price you will get a 300 hp and 270 lb-ft of torque. This is enough for most people but the engine is not of the most fuel efficient units on the market. For a bit more money, at around 26 thousand dollars you can have a much more fuel efficient unit, but that lack the character of the V6. This unit is a 2.3 liter EcoBoost turbocharged in line 4. It can put out as much as 305 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque. Considering the fact that it is more fuel efficient than the other, it is a nice option to have.
The most powerful engine will be the V8. The 5 liter unit will have several power options. The least powerful will have 420 horsepower and around 380 lb-ft of torque. The supercharged unit, found on the SVT will probably have over 600 horsepower. The one found on the Boss Mustang will be a tweaked aspirated version with around 444 horsepower.
Fuel economy is okay. The most fuel efficient is the 2.3 liter engine. It will be able to return around 27 MPG or more on the highway and as much as 22 MPG in the city. The other engines will have lower fuel efficiency but compensate that with other advantages.
