Ford Open To Diesel, Hybrid Or Electric Mustang? [W/Poll]

Quote:
The Ford Mustang may not be the first vehicle that comes to mind when you think of environmentally-friendly forms of transportation. The arrival of the turbocharged four-cylinder engine in the new Mustang could do a lot to combat that perception, but the EcoBoost engine may just be the tip of the iceberg in that regard.

Speaking with Ford powertrain boss Bob Fascetti at the reveal of the new Mustang in Australia, GoAuto reports that the Blue Oval automaker is considering offering its latest pony car with a diesel, hybrid or even electric powertrain in the future.

"We're not looking at diesel at the moment, but given where we need to go with fuel consumption we are looking at all our options," said Fascetti. Other options could include a nine- or ten-speed automatic transmission to replace the current six-speed unit in order to help improve fuel economy and emissions for the Mustang, although figures for the current lineup have yet to be revealed.

I would rather have the V6 turbo but that's not in the poll so I voted for the I4.

A smaller V6 with a turbo wouldn't be a bad idea.

Surprised no one mentioned V8, V8 is a must for me. I already have a commuter car, looking to make this my fun car.

I would go with the diesel. It would sound gnarly and hopefully be more fuel efficient as well. Unlike with an EV, you would still be able to hear me come up behind you.
