Disappointed with 2.3 and 3.7l 2015s
So the now v6 gets worse mpg (remember when it was rated at 305hp and 31mpg) and the 2.3 is coming in at 310hp and 31mpg, I was expecting better mpg than that.
Granted, the car gained wt. which accounts for some of the loss, but the news sucked the wind out of my enthusiasm a bit.
The GT and GT350 look to be the ones you want. MPG ratings are a pita. And misleading though. The standard GT is rated the same MPG as my 328hp v6 but I can promise you I never got close to the mpg in my 5.0 you can get in a nissan G or Z.
So maybe....31mpg. Isn't so bad. Maybe better than it seems for a light wt. mustang. Maybe with the 2.3 you'll actually see closer than that in real world driving. Could it compete with a genesis coupe? If so you have winner.
Still....the only one grabbing my attention is the GT350. I so want the 350 to be competitve with a z28... or at least, the next step down at a reasonable price.
