There has been some speculation for a while that Ford’s EcoBoost line of turbocharged engines would eventually find its way under the hood of the Ford Mustang. Well we now have confirmation that it’s going to happen.
Ford chairman Bill Ford Jr. spoke to an audience at Princeton last night and luckily he invited a few questions. A Jalopnik reader was on hand and asked the chairman if Ford had plans to offer an EcoBoost engine in the Mustang. Bill Ford Jr. confirmed that an EcoBoost engine will be offered in the Mustang, but he stopped short of giving any other details.
So now we get to speculate if Ford is going to offer its turbocharged 3.5L V6 or the smaller 2.0L four-cylinder. Just in case you’re wondering if a Mustang has ever been offered with a turbocharged engine, in 1984 Ford produced the Mustang SVO. The Mustang SVO was powered by a turbocharged 2.3L that put out 175 horsepower.
