2011 Ford Mustang gets more power and better fuel economy

Ford just picked up the gauntlet that the new V-6 Chevy Camaro threw down a few months ago.

Not to be out done the boys and gals in blue just announced that the 2011 Ford Mustang will get an all new V-6 that gets the same 305 HP as the V-6 Camaro, and a pretty amazing 30 mpg on the Highway.

The official press announcement from Ford is below:

The 2011 Ford Mustang puts 305 high-performance horses in the hands of V-6 coupe buyers with a new all-aluminum dual-overhead cam (DOHC) engine that delivers a projected 30 mpg on the highway with a six-speed automatic transmission and fun for drivers on nearly every road.

– For 2011, Mustang makes sports coupe news with a new high-performance, all-aluminum Duratec® 3.7-liter DOHC Ti-VCT V-6 that delivers 305 horsepower and an expected best-in-class 30 mpg highway with six-speed automatic transmission – no other vehicle in the industry can beat that combination

– Six-speed transmissions – manual and automatic – combine with newly standard limited-slip differential and revised suspension for road-carving driving dynamics and handling

– New technology and convenience features include: Standard integrated spotter mirrors; message center; MyKey™ programmable vehicle key; and Universal Garage Door Opener.
