article image2011 Ford Mustang: Driving to Los Angeles

By Matt Harding     Nov 30, 2009 in Technology
Ford plans to officially unveil two cars this week at the Los Angeles Auto Show: the extremely famous Mustang will be one of them.
The brand new 2011 Ford Mustang (due out in 2010) will make its debut at this week's Los Angeles Auto Show. Ford has announced that they will integrate their new direct-injection V6 engine into the Mustang sports coupe line starting with this, the 2011 model. This counts as big news because Ford has been touting the direct-injected V6 as the replacement for many of its V8's.
Of course, when it comes to the new Mustang, nowhere other than Michigan would (or should) be the place to build. The 2011 Mustang will be built at the Auto Alliance International Plant in Flat Rock, Michigan. The new 3.7-liter V6 engine will be built at Ford's recently retooled Cleveland Engine Plant No. 1. That's welcomed news for the Michigan and Ohio economies.
Among other features, the new engine is expected to have a redline of 7,000 RPM, will deliver 305 horsepower and have 280 pound-feet of torque. Transmission options include a new six-speed automatic and six-speed manual transmission.
And for everyone worried about miles per gallon, the fuel economy of the Mustang is expected to be 19 MPG city and 30 MPG on the highway (with automatic transmission). The manual transmission is slightly worse at 18 MPG city and 29 MPG highway; but this is still up from 2010's model.
