Window labels were leaked from Ford’s new 2015 redesigned Mustang announcing the fall in fuel economy.
The stickers indicate that the 2015 Mustang V-6 automatic’s fuel economy falls from 31 on the highway for the 2014 model to 28, meaning it’s up three miles per gallon for the redesigned 2015.
Ford officials would not confirm the accuracy of the labels but stated “We have not discussed fuel economy at all, and we’d like to wait until the EPA officially releases the Mustang’s fuel economy ratings,” said Ford spokesman Brian Cotter.
The new model is expected to be heavier since it has added equipment such as the independent rear suspension, various electronic safety features and other items that raised the weight and would lower the fuel economy of the new models.
According to the stickers, the 2.3-liter four-cylinder Mustang, new model for 2015 has a manual transmission which appears to be the most fuel-efficient model.
In Comparison Chevy’s Camaro, its rival will now take the lead in highway rating. Its 2015 V-6 automatic is EPA-rated 19 city, 30 highway, 22 combined.
January of 2015 Ford car owners will get RTR package upgrades after the release of the new 2015 Ford Mustang. The package includes upgrades in performance and appearance, and will be available worldwide.
