The Turbocharged Four-Pot Mustang is Pretty Damn Sweet

Test Drive

But it's still no V8.

It’s more powerful than its V6 counterpart and it weighs less than the V8 model. The all-new 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost may be outright blasphemy to many purists, but it may just end up becoming the best-selling engine choice. Why? Well, let’s face it: the majority of Mustang buyers aren’t all that interested in drag races or straight-line performance. They just want a Mustang that’s fun to drive, has solid power output, and looks good inside and out.

The standard V6 offers that but the new 310 horsepower, 320 lb-ft of torque turbo four banger is also more fuel efficient. That combination alone is more than good enough for plenty of potential buyers. But how does the new EcoBoost turbo four perform? Motor Trend has completed some dyno and road testing to find out.
