2015 Mustang in Sept 2013 Road & Track



New rendering and some speculative powertrain details of the new 2015 Mustang:

- 300hp V6
- 350hp 2.3L 4-cyl (not to be called SVO)
- 420hp 5.0L V8

The bolder body reminds me a lot of the current Camaro body. Not sure if that is a good thing to looks like a competitor.

However I do agree that mustang was due for a modern look and theme. Now we just have to get the crowd to convert for the most part.

First of all Boo-urns for the four cylinder model turbo or not. Got to get rid of the pansy box motor. Keep it for the focus and fusion.

The world has changed, whether you jump on the train or get left behind at the station. Displacement is everything anymore. If I can tune a 4-cylinder and get more power, more torque, a better power curve, and crucially less weight than a V8 motor, then why would any enthusiast choose the V8? The 4-cyl is the more balanced and lighter weight choice -- therefore the enthusiast's choice.

Agreed. If you get all the same measures (torque, power, etc) but can do it with a 4 cylinder instead of a V8, there is no reason for the V8. People get stuck in the past of rumbling engines that are not efficient. The future is more efficient use of fuel and materials, but we are also better at getting the most out of these more efficient engines.

Nice rendering, I like that this is a mix of the design from the current Mustang and Evos concept. I just hope the real thing is less like the current stang

If I had to guess I would say possible close to 300ft lbs.

300 ft-lb or torque is quite a lot to expect from a 4 cylinder turbo, thats a number a Ford V6 is more likely to hit. 4 cylinder engines aren't known to be torquie even when there's a turbo or supercharger, at least not when in a car like this.

I'm going to expect torque to be under 300 but over 240.

That is true for the torque. It is on the higher side if it was 30oft lbs. But with a displacement of 2.3L you can expect under 270.
