LA Auto Show: 2011 Ford Mustang Promotes Fuel Economy



When we think of muscle cars we think of the Ford Mustang and the Chevy Camaro. Both have always tried to best each other when it comes to performance, but Ford are going in a different direction with its upcoming 2011 Ford Mustang and will be promoting fuel economy.

The new Mustang will be on show at this weeks LA Auto Show. but it certainly seems strange to see a muscle car thinking more about economy rather than power. Not that the 2011 Ford Mustang lacks power, the V6 engine produces more horsepower than the previous model.

The 2011 Ford Mustang’s engine has been refined to produce 304hp and delivers 30 miles per gallon on the highway. The car should begin production early next year and will go head to head with the Chevy Camaro.

We have to wonder how Ford managed to get these superb fuel economy figures. According to Reuters this was thanks to a new six-speed transmission and advancements from its aerodynamics.
