Ford Mustang followers are interested in one thing when it comes to a new power train being introduced for 2011, and that is power. Even so Ford would also like to highlight the fact that although the new power plant does produce substantially more power it also has improved fuel economy.
On June 23rd Bristol Motor Speedway in Tennessee will host Ford’s attempt to run over 1,000 laps of its half-mile track on a single tank of gas. The new Ford Mustang’s V6 has already gained figures of 19 miles per gallon in the city and 31 mpg on the highway.
With a target of over 500 miles from one tank, the Ford test driver’s will circle the track, hopefully hitting over 1000 laps before the tank runs dry. While the test is being carried out you can log on to www.Mustang1000LapChallenge.com and have a guess as to how many laps you think the Mustangs will finish before it coasts to a halt. Ford will then draw at random the name of one person who guessed correctly and they will win a 2011 V6 Ford Mustang. Head over to AutoBlog for more.
How many laps do you think the Mustang can do?
