LEAKED: 2015 Ford Mustang Three Engine Plan

LEAKED: 2015 Ford Mustang Three Engine Plan

The following from a "Ford Insider" gives us a look at the 2015 Ford Mustang Three Engine Plan. Chances are this is exactly what we'll be getting.

Quote:
” I met a guy a few weeks ago who said he was working on the next-gen Mustang. Aside from the styling cues coming from Ford’s recent Evos concept (Ford Evos Concept Photos and Info – News – Car and Driver), he told me the powertrain lineup.

2.5-liter four-cylinder @300hp
3.7-liter six-cylinder @305hp+ (but he did say there were talks of upping the power to somewhere near 400hp)
5.0-liter eight-cylinder @475hp+"
Quote:
“ They listed the V8 on the stat sheet and Ecoboost was listed. We did not get to actually see the engines. One of the questions the computer asked was, “would you buy the V8 over the 4 cylinder for $8000 more?” That does not mean that is what is going to happen. It was just one of the questions asked. ”
Quote:
” The questions about the Mustang included 3 engine options, one of which was the 5.0. We did not look under the hoods. ”

possible that it could be a five engine plan instead of three. being a global vehicle five is believable


Mustang Five Engine Plan

Mustang - NA 3.5L V6 290HP/270LBFT
Mustang Pony Package - EB 2.0L I4 275HP/275LBFT
Mustang SVO - EB 2.3L I4 330HP/290LBFT
Mustang GT - NA 5.0L V8 440HP/400LBFT
Mustang GT350 - EB 3.5L V6 400HP/450LBFT

nice to see this wide range of engines for the Mustang, since the S550 is going to be a global vehicle and the hybrid sports coupe segment is starting to open up do you think Ford will ever drop a hybrid powertrain in the Mustang?

You just quoted the 5-6 engine plan.

The Shelby GT500 Mustang is going to be a beast with almost 700 horsepower under its belt. I bet it still sporting a supercharger to generate that huge amount of power.

Interesting... So there are two four cylinder engine options for the new ford mustang? I thought it was just going to be one with the ecoboost tech.

Pretty impressive numbers from just a 2.3L four cylinder most likely boosted to achieve those numbers.
