2011 Ford Mustang V6 Officially Gets 31 MPG on the Highway

Ford has announced the official EPA numbers for the 2011 Ford Mustang V6, which gets 31 mpg on the highway and 19 mpg in the city. This marks the first production car in history that has over 300 horsepower and that also manages to get over 30 mpg on the highway.

The 2011 Mustang is powered by a new 3.7: V6 with 305 horsepower that is mated to an available six-speed automatic.

“Advanced powertrains like our Ti-VCT V-6 and six-speed automatic really speak to the future of Mustang,” says Barb Samardzich, Ford vice president of Global Powertrain Engineering. “We’ve proven that, using technology, Ford can deliver both power and fuel economy.”

Ford has already received over 11,000 orders for the 2011 Mustang, with half of those orders for the V6 model, which goes on sale this spring.
