A leaked window sticker has revealed fuel economy numbers for a selection of 2015 Ford Mustang models. 

According to the leaked info from Mustang6g.com, the 2015 Mustang V6 is rated at 28 mpg on the highway and 17 in the city with a manual transmission, a loss of 3 mpg highway compared to the 2014 model. The automatic-equipped model comes in at 17 mpg in the city and 28 on the highway, losing 2 mpg in the city and one on the highway.

The most fuel efficient model will likely be the EcoBoost Mustang with a six-speed manual, which is pegged at 22 mpg city, 31 on the highway and 26 mpg combined. Fuel economy numbers for the V8 were not included.

A Ford spokesman would not confirm if these leaked numbers were correct.

    Maybe they are not worse, they are simply starting to be honest.

    Funny, I’ve always found MPG ratings to be underrated, I can almost always beat them by 10%.

  • Lou Ann

    Guess it just depends a lot on how a person drives.

  • JGN

    How convenient the V6 gets worse now that the ecoboost has come out…

  • jeffy

    It’s an average rating and you’re above average. You can always beat a car’s listed MPG’s by slow and steady acceleration/braking. They have to take into account teenagers, stop light racers, traffick, last-moment brakers, etc.

    You can KEEP them all. I intentionally purchased the last of the current gen, believing that bugs and issue would be sorted, but I was wrong. My car has been in the shop for repeated drivetrain issues – ruined driveshafts and differentials! All the power and sound of the 5.0 means nothing when everything connected to it is pure junk. Worse yet, no local dealership has proven reliable or trustworthy enough to fix the issues. Buy a Ford and proay for the lucky number. Then you wiill have to deal with no post-sale support.

Worse yet, no local dealership has proven reliable or trustworthy enough to fix the issues; I’ve caught 3 SoCal dealerships in their lies! Buy a Ford and pray for the lucky number. Then you will have to deal with no post-sale support.

    Learn to drive and you’ll be fine.

    People in general are not driving like they want max fuel economy; They drive like they’re in a big ass hurry….And nobody buys a Mustang for fuel economy anyway… take the gentleman below, who thinks his 5.0 Mustang is junk. The factory car is made for average driving, not racing or stomping on it every chance you get. However I can say my 12 GT runs perfect, although I’ve put under 2,000 mi on it. I’ve punched it hard a few times and the car is tight and perfect, but it’s not a race car.
