Re: The 2015 Mustang: Fifty Years On

New power numbers for the four banger are in:

The company went with a 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine for the new Mustang, and it comes with more power and more tech than found in previous Mustang four-pots. It makes 305 hp, the same as the current 3.7-liter V6, but more torque, coming in at 300 lb-ft, besting the V6's 280. This means that the smallest available engine size-wise will likely be positioned as an upgrade for the Mustang. Ford went with a twin-scroll, low-inertia turbocharger, a setup designed to provide minimal turbo lag and better throttle response. The internals have also been beefed up to help cope with the extra power. The engine gets a forged-steel crankshaft, piston-cooling jets, forged connecting rods, and a host of other goodies.
