Ford Mustang Ecoboost Confirmed

While many enthusiasts won’t agree with this, Ford is preparing to introduce a four-cylinder engine to the Mustang, with the pony car set to receive an Ecoboost turbocharged unit. The information is not new - until now we’ve only had unofficial reports but Ford product chief Derrick Kuzak confirmed this in an interview for Autoweek during the Detroit Auto Show.

Like we said, some fans will disagree, saying that the Mustang had had its fair share of poor engines over the years and that the new one should keep the standards high, but the Ecoboost technology, which includes turbocharging, variable valve timing and others, will bring an output that shouldn’t be that far away from that of a V6.

The most likely candidate is the 2.0-liter that will be found under the hood of the 2012 Ford Focus ST, which means that the ‘Stang is set to receive 250 hp.
