The 2.3L is unknown at this point. I'm sure Mustang buyers want to know as well.
that will be a must. i wonder how much better MPG's will be in the mustang than in the Escape, since the Mustang should be lighter.

careful driving -- yes. An egg between my foot and the accelerator. But MKC should do better -- that is the advantage of the eco boost. Small displacement, better mileage but more power if needed.

but where is the fun in that

thats why i believe in real world mileage claims like on fuelly.com over the estimated ones. estimated mileage is in ideal perfect conditions with the most ideal type of driving.

none of those criteria fit the bill for me.

that is very true.
no fun in trying to get the best MPG's.
at least even driving heavy footed for even random moments, your mileage wont sink as bad as it would with older cars.

but the mustang is tuned for over 300 ponies vs MKC's 275. Plus the mustang is a tad more performance oriented

thats true, but that extra power and likely torque also helps even more for MPG's since the stang is lighter. Don't have to go as high up in the RPM range as you would need to with a lower output setup

Clamshell

Can anyone explain the advantages of the clamshell liftgate vs a conventional design. I can't any aesthetic benefit unless it retains the continuity of the rear light design. It is obviously heavier and may be taking up some storage space.

I wish I knew, looking at both I don't see how it might be better than a traditional lift gate
