Turbocharged four-cylinder Mustang to make a return in 2015?
The thought of a four-cylinder Mustang might seem strange to some, but if a report by MotorAuthority.com is true, one could be in the works for 2015. Ford has been hard at work adding EcoBoost engines to their vehicle lineup that includes a 2.0L four-cylinder, a 2.7L six-cylinder and a 3.5L six-cylinder. A 2.3L version could possibly make its way into the Mustang, adding a third engine option alongside the 3.7L V6 and 5.0L v8.
The new EcoBoost motor for the Mustang would arrive near the same time as the introduction of the next generation, due around 2014. Reports have indicated that the new Mustang will be built on a global platform and receive input from Ford’s various design studios around the world.
This wouldn’t be the first time that the Mustang would be offered with a turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The popular Mustang SVO built from 1984-1986 featured a 2.3L turbocharged inline-4. The motor initially produced 175 horsepower and 210 lb-ft torque, which was increased to 200 horsepower and 240 lb-ft torque during the last year of production.
