its not that easy they are pretty equal and the highway gas mileage for the 5.0 is 26. Dont forget I have owned both. I havent owned the 392 but does it take the extra displacement to beat a much cheaper (as you guys have posted) mustang.
everywhere I have looked it says 23-24, like this post on one of your fellow mustang sites says:
Also new for 2011 Mustang is a choice of either a new six-speed manual transmission or a six-speed automatic. Together with that variable cam technology (Ti-VCT) and "EPAS" (Ford's electronic power steering), a Mustang GTwith an automatic transmission will be able to achieve 25 mpg on the highway. That's up from 23 mpg
for the current Mustang GT with an auto 'box. Both the 2010 and 2011 get 17 mpg in the city, while the six-speed manual Mustang gets 24 mpg on the highway and 16 mpg city.
but really this thread and argument could go on forever, I swear its like when I tailgate at the football games for my chargers and for USC football, season tix holder for both for 10 years now, I get into never ending arguments, and the same ol' thing over and over again, just a different team on another day. same thing here. lol lol
if we get into these comparisons and arguments here with just mopar, ford, and chevy, imagine if the import guys join in too! hahahahahahahah...RUMBLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it never ends, I am sure there are some fast WRX big boosting turbos out there that say they will walk all over all 3 of us all day! it goes on and on, like the energizer bunny. much props to all amercian makers right now, they are staying competitive and making nice cars, as long as it doesnt dip into how it was in the 80's and 90's when the guy with a stock 93 fox body stang or the 94 sn95 model stang, who thought he was fast with 180rwhp. lol! that was me! man was power down then, you had to mod like crazy. and here we are now with 400+hp and still complaining.
by the way, I just broke off a new mustang 5.0 on the way home right now, 5 lights in a row, but then again I have a blower, the look on his eyes was priceless. he had no clue I was boostin, he had windows slightly up and rockin to tool, poor kid. he hawked me down too! messed with the wrong chally. reason I know he had no clue I was boostin is he asked if I was stock! I said......yeah!:rofl:, I couldnt keep a straight face though, I told him the truth.
I love being blown:eusa_dance: lol. reason why i did it. sorry to say but our cars are fat pigs, but comfy! now its a fat pig on crack!
