Torque will start much earlier in the EcoBoost, it will get better gas mileage and the tuneability of a TTV6 is a great bonus. Just for reference, the current V6 Mustang gets 19/29mpg in manual configuration. The Taurus SHO (V6 EcoBoost) gets 17/25mpg, but that's with AWD and an additional 900lbs of curb weight. Throw a slightly more fuel efficient 3.0L EcoBoost in a Mustang weighing 3,300lbs with RWD and you're definitely going to surpass the current V6's gas efficiency while having a better powerband and tuneability.

Here's a dyno of the Taurus SHO. Blue is stock tune + cai, red is custom tune + cai:
