For 2012, Ford Mustang’s American style is combined with powerful engines delivering outstanding fuel economy across the lineup. It also puts the driving experience in the customer’s hands with new selectable steering.
The 2012 Ford Mustang GT, powered by a 412-horsepower 5.0-liter V8 engine, achieves an EPA rating of 26 mpg on the highway when equipped with the six-speed manual transmission, giving it the best fuel economy in its class. With the six-speed manual, the Mustang GT coupe is rated at 17 mpg city and 26 mpg highway, while models with the available six-speed automatic achieve 18 mpg city and 25 mpg highway.
Mustang GT is powered by an all-new 5.0-liter DOHC V8 with a host of advanced features to deliver the combination of power and class-leading fuel economy. Twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) adjusts the valvetrain in microseconds depending on driver inputs. A carefully tuned intake and exhaust system ensures free breathing at all engine speeds. And all-aluminum construction results in a lightweight yet durable engine.
