2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost Engine

The Chicago Auto Show opened its doors for the first of two media days today, and we joined the ranks of the automotive press to see the car company’s latest wares. As you might expect we headed straight to the Ford booth to see what sort of Mustangs they had on display, and imagine our surprise when we spotted the hood open on a 2015 EcoBoost model. So far Ford has yet to willingly open the hood on any 2015 Mustang’s we’ve seen, so we rushed over to check out the exposed engine.

While our photos show the best view yet of the EcoBoost four-cylinder, we have doubts that what you see here is a completely finished product. We imagine there will be a few more refinements on production cars for a cleaner look. For added perspective you can see the EcoBoost engine itself in more detail here.

    Notice the strut brace ties to the firewall. Nice!

    I read in another blog that the basis 4 – banger will not reach more than 121 mph – this is not faster than the most cars today. Acceleration is surly much better but if the engine has about 300 hp, it should reach a speed fairly behind the 121 mph mark. It is said that there will be a track pack and the top speed of the 4 banger equipped with that will be about 145 mph – sounds better! But if the price of this track pack version should be nearly that of a GT, then spend some bucks more and buy the latter ;-)

    The speeds are electronically limited, but the engines are capable of much more. Ford just chooses where to set the limiter.

  • Andreas says:

    @beargap: Thats the problem: Ford set the limit too low for some markets. Even much Golf Diesel are faster and a Golf GTI or Scirocco will beat the standard 4-banger if set at this limit. No car for German “Autobahn”

    Yes because we all need to go 120 mph on public roads. Most people will hardly ever hit 85-90 so 120 leaves nothing to be desired. Anyone wanting to go faster than 85-90 will hopefully be on a track and be running a car specifically set up to handle the speed…in the case of the current car all it requires is swapping out the drive shaft and a tune to remove the e limiter.

    As far as the 2.3 motor shown in the pictures…wow is that homely looking. Reminds me of a Toyota Corolla motor…hopefully they will pretty that thing up a lot before it hits the showroom or else no one will ever want to pop the hood at a track day event on one of those…
