I'm pretty happy with the numbers that they released and it's what i expected with the weight and power.

From looking at the V6 auto vs the V6 manual it seems the auto gets better fuel economy. My guess would be the ecoboost auto is going to be Ford's bread and butter, so I'm guessing a 27mpg combined for the 2.3 ecoboost auto?

Thoughts?

probably. With the V6 being relegated to little more than fleet/rental cars (the lack of any V6 premium trim signals that) then yeah, I'd say the 2.3 EB will be the choice for people who don't want to stump up for the 5.0. Going by the build & price on the Ford site, you can load up an Ecoboost just like you can a GT. the available options on the V6 are pretty sparse.

well, its getting cold outside again...****in reached down to the 40s the other day.  almost can't wait for the snowy stuff............................almost i don't have a twitter account nor have i ever been to a twitter web page (update: i have), but if i ever did decide to take the plunge i will let you know by posting it in this awesome little box of text (update: not really)! i like tacos lol...though between crunchy tacos and soft tacos i cannot really say which one is better.  sometimes, the mess a crunchy taco leaves behind is a little annoying while the soft taco just doesn't have the same taste... cake is so much better than pie no, srsly.  **** pie. ****ing

That is true. I was hoping it would be a couple mpg's more but I mean its making a ton of power for that engine size.

Yes, there is a very well defined EPA test cycle to determine the FE label of every car. There is also a modification factor to lower the rating to account for more real world driving since nobody drives as carefully as the test cycle. This is why it is easy to get a better number than published especially on the highway. The modifier is about 20%. So if a vehicle attains 20 MPG in the test then the published number is 16 MPG. The need for this modifier is especially true with the Ecoboost engines as a boosted engine seems to be more sensitive to aggressive driving practices than a non-boosted engine.

Anyway, there is no guess or debate over the label data as it is available for any vehicle here (including information on how the measured data is modified and why):

New to the forums. Took del of EB/prem/auto 2 wks ago. Also have a 2011/6/auto. With same driver and roads, I was getting about 22 overall with the 6 and highest with cruise-control on hwy of about 29. With the stock EB (during break-in) I'm getting about 28 combined and 34 on hwy using regular gas.... I should get a little better with premium (and after break-in).. Not a huge difference from the 6, but much better than the 8 of course.
