Gone are the days of the old and gasoline-thirsty four-cylinder Mustang. The American Muscle is all set to launch an all-new 50th anniversary edition that unveils in showrooms next month.
It comes in all new V-8, pumped up to a whopping 435 horsepower – or a base V-6, with an another option of the new four-cylinder engine, which pumps an impressive 310 hp. But all that power is now more economic than ever, courtesy, Ford’s new technology dubbed EcoBoost that balances power with mileage.
“You will need new technology to keep putting power to the pavement,” said Mustang’s chief engineer Dave Pericak. “Technology, especially the more exotic, will be needed for (tomorrow’s) performance cars, and they are not cheap,” he continued, “We have to figure out how to do these things, and do them affordably,” hinting about the more economic Mustang from Ford.
Until now, Ford only manufactured Mustangs exclusively for Americans, for the past 50 years. The all-new, sixth-generation of the original pony car is now available for the rest of the world. The Mustang is now face-lifted in European-style, featuring narrowed headlamps and grille, long hoods and short rear decks, and edgy rocker panels that weren’t seen until now. The windshield and rear glass are also aggressively raked.
Performance has always been a priority for the Mustang, so the new 2015 Mustang features a four-cylinder 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine making 310 horsepower and 320 lb.-ft. of torque, along with the more powerful Ti-VCT V6 (300 hp, 280 lb.-ft.) and V8 Coyote (435 hp, 400 lb.-ft.).
It requires 93 octane gasoline fuel to transmit all this power to the wheels. The engine has economy between 9.0 litres per 100 kilometres (manual) and 9.4L/100km against the V8′s 12.3L/100km (auto or manual), thanks to the EcoBoost technology, making it the most efficient Mustang ever.
