Is the 2015 Mustang EcoBoost Really a Mustang?
I definitely was eager to finally spend some time in America’s Pony Car. But then, I noticed it was the 2.3L EcoBoost I4. Is a Mustang with a four-cylinder a proper Mustang? Let’s find out.
New for 2015 is a 2.3L EcoBoost I4 engine making 310 horsepower. Ford dropped one off for the week, and we want to know what you want to know.
How close does the real-world fuel economy for the EcoBoost Mustang come to those great EPA ratings? Well, pretty darn close.
When it became clear that Ford was going to put a high-output, racing-derived version of its 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 in its next GT, many citizens of the interwebs were livid. Greater fuel efficiency and increased power be damned, the V8 diehards hated the Blue Oval’s change in power plants.
With millennial buyers now making up nearly 35 percent of new Mustang sales, most young buyers are opting for the four-cylinder engine rather than the V8.
