Motor Trend logo Motor Trend 9/11/2014 Alex Nishimoto

Official info on the 2015 Ford Mustang has been slowly trickling out since its debut, and now we have EPA fuel economy numbers for the entire Mustang range.

Research

The 2015 Ford Mustang GT is rated at 15/25 mpg city/highway with the six-speed manual and 16/25 mpg with the six-speed automatic. That's down from the 2014 GT, which achieves 1 mpg better on the highway when equipped with the manual, and 2 mpg better in the city with the automatic. The GT's 5.0-liter Coyote V-8 gets a few upgrades that raise output to 435 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque for 2015, including bigger intake and exhaust valves, the Boss 302's valve springs, Boss connecting rods, and a higher-lift cam profile. Though combined mpg drops from 20 mpg to 19 mpg for the automatic, the rating stays the same for the manual at 19 mpg combined. 2015 Ford Mustang Ecoboost Rear Side View© Provided by MotorTrend 2015 Ford Mustang Ecoboost Rear Side View

Just as predicted, the 2015 Ford Mustang with the turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine achieves better fuel economy numbers than the V-6. The EcoBoost Mustang with the six-speed manual is rated 22/31 mpg, while the automatic version is rated 21/32 mpg. The 3.7-liter V-6 model is rated 17/28 mpg with the manual and 19/28 mpg with the automatic, which is down from last year. The 2014 Ford Mustang V-6 was rated 19/29 mpg with the manual and 19/31 mpg with the automatic. In addition, the Mustang V-6 loses 5 hp for 2015.
