For a long time, any Mustang other than the V8 was scoffed and/or laughed at, and with good reason. Having driven my 4-banger Mustang across country, I can attest that despite its phenomenal gas mileage, it struggles up hills, lacks any sort of “oomph” and it even sounds terrible.
Ford has countered with a 305 horsepower V6 that gets an EPA rated 31 mpg. To demonstrate the excellent gas mileage of this new Mustang, they went around the half-mile Bristol Motor Speedway 1,457 times…. on a single tank of gas. This means the Mustang got 48.5 miles per gallon. Take that, Prius!
