Rumor: 2015 Ford Mustang will receive a turbocharged four-cylinder powerplant

Article by Christian Andrei, on June 18, 2012

The next-generation Ford Mustang could get a turbocharged four-cylinder powerplant. Mustang fans may find fault this plan but it’s something that Ford believed it just had to do especially with how successful its EcoBoost engines have been. But they would be pleased to know that this vehicle delivers 330 hp and offers more than the existing 280 lb-ft of torque of the V6.

Ford is presently developing a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, which will power the next-generation Focus RS. The same powerplant will be used by the base model 2015 Mustang, according to Matthias Ton, the head of Ford’s global performance car division. It replaces the existing 3.7-liter V6.

Aside from the additional horsepower the turbocharged four-cylinder provides, the Mustang benefits as its fuel efficiency will then be higher than the 19-mpg city, 31-mpg highway of the current V6. It’s likely that when the Mustang debuts in 2015, it won’t have the EcoBoost in it yet. It would probably be added to the lineup one or two years later.
