The 2015 EcoBoost S550 is a REAL Mustang




The 2.3L EcoBoost 4 with 305 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of twist is going to be the go to choice for those looking to meld performance and efficiency. Ford says the new 2.3L was developed specifically for Mustang, what they mean is that the intake manifold and turbo houses have been optimized to breathe better than say the Lincoln MKC which also uses the 2.3.

Scott Makowski, EcoBoost Powertrain Engineering Manager:

Quote:
“This EcoBoost engine delivers the healthy output that Mustang drivers expect regardless of the speed, this EcoBoost engine might be small in displacement, but it delivers where a Mustang driver expects it with a broad, flat torque curve and great driveability under any conditions."
The most impressive piece of engineering in the 2.3L EcoBoost is the integrated exhaust manifold that separates the inner 2 and outer 2 exhaust pulses. Each has an individual inlet passage to the turbo meaning you eliminate losses from collusion and force feed the pulses directly through the turbine wheel. What this does is provides gobs of low-down torque similar to a twin turbo set up.

Other Notables:
  • Forged-steel crankshaft
  • Piston-cooling jets
  • Steel piston ring carriers
  • Premium bearing materials
  • Upgraded valve seat materials
  • Forged-steel connecting rods
  • High-pressure die-cast aluminum cylinder block with ladder-frame bearing caps
  • Deep-sump, die-cast aluminum oil pan

I know the 5.0 V8 sounds amazing. Now I just need to hear what the 4 cylinder is like.

Yup, w/o question. In fact, out of the box, I'm upping my initial guess to 350 ponies. This is going to be a very popular engine.
