Ford Mustang Coming with Turbo 2.3L 4-Cylinder in 2015
We don’t know if we’ve started to see mirages because of the summer heat, but it seems that an article on Motor Authority says the SVO is coming back.
More specifically, the 2.3-liter displacement will come in EcoBoost form and will arrive under the bonnet of the 2015 Ford Mustang. MA also says that the EcoBoost V6 will arrive under that muscular bonnet, while the 5.0-liter V8 will stick around for those in need of some old-school grunt, receiving direct-injection technology to improve economy.
Adding validity to an otherwise iffy story, the article states that the 2.3-liter will arrive in the Lincoln 2015 lineup as well. While we’re not saying it’s impossible to see a 2.3-liter EcoBoost in the 2015 Ford Mustang, boring out the block for the four-pot seems unnecessary, as a forced-induction 2.0-liter will produce 247 hp in the new Ford Focus ST, and it could get even more powerful if the Blue Oval decide to on a new RS.
As for the 2.7-liter turbocharged V6, rumors indicate it’s being developed for both front- and rear-wheel drive vehicles, with other likely recipients being the Edge crossover SUV and the Fusion sedan. It's also possible that this engine could be used for a Ford Ranger replacement, should Ford choose to build one, though we’re not to keen on the idea.
