  • Latest Ford Mustang sees fuel economy drop for V6, V8 engines
  • New EcoBoost 4-cylinder is most efficient powertrain in lineup
  • New Mustang goes on sale this fall; pricing starts at $24,600 with shipping

The newly redesigned 2015 Ford Mustang will offer slightly worse fuel economy than its predecessor. That's the latest from Ford and the Environmental Protection Agency, which recently released gas mileage numbers for the all-new sports car.

Not surprisingly, the Mustang EcoBoost is the most efficient trim offered. Powered by a 2.3-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder engine with 310 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque, EcoBoost models return 21 miles per gallon in the city and 32 mpg on the highway with a 6-speed automatic transmission. That marks an improvement over the outgoing V6, which returned 19 mpg city/31 mpg hwy with the same transmission.

Unfortunately, the V6 engine won't keep its 30 mpg hwy fuel economy rating. Instead, this year's Mustang V6 drops to 19 mpg city/28 mpg hwy, creating a larger gap between its gas mileage numbers and the 4-cylinder's figures. The V6 engine will offer 305 horses and 280 lb-ft of torque, suggesting that it's likely to be a little slower than the 4-cylinder, too.

Topping the Mustang range is the V8-powered GT model, which gets 16 mpg city/25 mpg hwy. That, too, is a slight drop from last year's Mustang figures, as the 2014 GT returned 18 mpg city/25 mpg hwy. New GT models use a 5.0-liter V8 that makes 435 hp and 400 lb-ft -- an increase of 15 hp and 10 lb-ft over the outgoing model.

The fuel economy numbers come just ahead of the Mustang's arrival on the market, which is slated for this fall. Pricing starts around $24,600 for the base model, $26,200 for the EcoBoost and $33,100 for the V8-powered Mustang GT.

What it means to you: The 2015 Ford Mustang sees a slight drop in gas mileage when equipped with the V6 and V8 engines, but the fuel-efficient new 4-cylinder saves the day.
