Ford had already announced a 30 mpg highway figure for its updated Mustang and its new 3.7-liter V-6 engine. It was even printed on the side of one car at the Chicago Auto Show last month.
That number bested the new Chevy Camaro’s 29 mpg highway figure. Now Ford is announcing that the Mustang’s six-speed automatic has been rated at 19/31 mpg city/highway by the Environmental Protection Agency. The six-speed manual will get 19/30 mpg. A four-cylinder Honda Accord (sedan or coupe) gets 21/31 mpg.
The new Mustangs will go on sale later this spring. To learn more, check out our Mustang coverage here.
