Expert Quotes:

2012 Ford Mustang V-6: 19/31 mpg (auto), 19/29 mpg (manual)

2012 Ford Mustang V-8 (Shelby): 15/23 mpg
EPA



The Mustang was hardly known as a fuel-efficient model in the past; but with the introduction of two all-new engines a couple of years ago, it could now be one of the more fuel-efficient performance car picks—especially if you go with the V-6.

In V-6 versions, the Mustang achieves up to 31 mpg highway, according to the EPA. Even 420-horsepower V-8 models aren't the gas guzzlers you might think; they earn up to 26 mpg highway.

Just don't expect the super-performance Shelby GT500 versions to sip fuel quite as carefully; 2013 EPA numbers hadn't yet been posted at the time of posting, though for 2012 they were rated at 15/23 mpg.

Conclusion

The Mustang V-6 will eke out a miserly 31 miles per gallon—if you can be gentle with your right foot.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
