Ecoboost: lousy name for a cool car

So let's come up with a cool name for it. Are you listening, Ford? We're sharing ideas here, so pay attention! How about:

Ecobeast

Halfstang

Turbohorse

My Little Pony

Probe Mk II

Fusion Sport Coupe

Palomino

Stallion

OK, most of my ideas are really lame. Let's hear some better ones, people!

Funny you should bring this up. Someone did not realize it meant Turbocharged. They were amazed it had a turbo..so, I went old school and put the small "Turbocharged" emblem on the rear, just to the right and below the horse. I think Ford should have done something like this Instead of trying to appease the Greenies in Europe and here. It's a performance car, not a freaking Prius.

Yeah, that's right, Ecoboost doesn't sound any better than Priustang. I want a name with some muscle and fire in it!

Maybe that is why there is no actual Ecoboost emblem on the Mustang ... even Ford thought it was lame or did not think it fit the vehicle ... and by the replies so far in this thread they did the right thing !!
