Ford is talking up their new fuel economy gains at the Detroit Auto Show, and they should be. As a car enthusiast any time I hear mileage gains I start thinking performance will be down. I was very surprised and pleased when Ford started talking about the 2011 Mustang and they not only gave it significantly more power than the 2010 version, but better fuel economy as well.

The new 5.0 in the 2010 Mustang is an engineering marvel capable of 412hp and still able to get 25 mpg on the highway. The Mustang isn’t the only car gaining power and fuel economy in the Ford stable.

Ford will be launching all new engines and transmissions this year in the fiesta, Super duty, and F-150 in addition to the Mustang. The Fiesta is getting a 1.6L Ti-VCT four that is good for 40 mpg on the highway. The base Mustang gets a new V6 with 305 hp good for 30 mpg on the highway with the auto trans. Ford plans to offer EcoBoost engines on 90% of its cars by 2013 in an effort to boost performance and fuel economy. Judging by the Taurus SHO, the Eco Boost engine design is a winner.
