By now you should be familiar with Ford’s EcoBoost engines: great performance and amazing fuel efficiency. Now that Ford has made the technology available to every model in its line-up, let’s dive deep into the one of the most anticipated cars of 2015, the Ford Mustang EcoBoost.
The 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost is a rare beast. On one hand, it carries Ford’s decades old legacy of the American sports car, a small yet powerful vehicle with attractive looks. On the other hand, Mustang EcoBoost introduces breakthrough technology on a small and efficient engine with massive power. Thanks to an optimally sized twin-scroll turbocharger, a re-designed exhaust system and other modifications, this four-cylinder engine delivers 310 raw horsepower and 320 lb. of torque. This is an impressive feat considering just one generation ago, the base Mustang V6 produced 305 hp and 280 lb. of torque.
Recent track tests give the Mustang EcoBoost outstanding results: 0-60 mph in 5.2 seconds and a quarter mile in 13.9 seconds. The engine is coupled with an available automatic transmission, which allows for smoother shifts and quick on-demand power, and a standard manual transmission for quick shifting. Also, the new Mustang finally gets independent rear suspension, one of the last hold outs on a technology that’s been available for a long time.
Mustang EcoBoost is as important for consumers as it is for the Ford brand. A few years ago, after realigning the company with a new global design language and new fuel efficient goals, Ford made clear that the brand was going through a big change, from the way cars looked to the engines that power them. Mustang EcoBoost is at the epicenter of this strategy as it brings to the table the best of the bold design and engine technology.
Overall, the new 2015 Mustang EcoBoost is a great balance of power and fuel efficiency, beating bigger V6 competitors’ engines.
