And here comes a 2.3L Eco boost in the 2015 Ford Mustang when everybody was saying how pony cars should ditch that nasty V6. It really is mind boggling how manufacturers tend to play around and shock the socks off your feet when you least expect it, I mean; did you ever imagine a Ford Mustang with a 4 banger? aye..
Well lads, this Ecoboost represents the new generation of engines and fuel efficiency so we must calm ourselves down even though we were immensely let down by the 2015 Ford Mustang GT lack of power in that V8. The thing with fanboys is, they will still buy it even if it sucks and thats the bottom line.
However, there are benefits to having a fourbanger due to the better fuel economy, the lower weight and the 320lb-ft of torque which is more than the useless V6 entry. Yet still heavier than the outgoing 2014 Mustang V6 making it a hard choice again, just crinkling ourselves with questions are we.
Horsepower figures are mildly impressive with 310hp on hand coupled with 320lb-ft of torque and an impressive 21city/32highway mpg | 25mpg combined fuel economy. Opting for the 2015 Ford Mustang Eco Boost means that you are ready to sacrifice a manual transmission option, in favor of paddle shift knobs to shift gears. You will also be able to use launch control (turn off stability/traction and hold brake) release to sprint from 0-60 mph in just 5.6 seconds which is 1.2 seconds slower than the 2015 Ford Mustang GT but 0.1 seconds faster than the VW Golf GTI.
Buying the first gen 2015 Ford Mustang eco boost is basically similar to volunteering to be a test rat, but there is nothing wrong with until the manufacturer decides to tweak the bugs and quirks you’ll be enjoying your brand new Mustang. The thing is, can you see yourself in v4 Mustang? No, same here. It all boils down to how the 2015 Ford Mustang 2.3L Eco Boost drives and feels on the street.
