Last week it was rumored that the next-generation Ford Mustang will indeed receive a four-cylinder engine, but only the European customers are going to enjoy it. Things have changed since then, as it looks like the guys over Road and Track have a different story.
According to the magazine, the American market is going to receive the 2.3-liter turbo four-cylinder engine, but not in the base version. Ford is already offering such an engine on models like Fusion and Explorer, so why not also offer it in the Mustang as well? The four-cylinder EcoBoost is rumored to deliver over 300 horsepower, making it an improvement over the base 3.7-liter V-6 that delivers a total of 305 horsepower.
It is also speculated that the 2015 Mustang will be offered with a paddle-shift automatic transmission too.
However, it looks like things are just getting ramped up and we expect to learn more about the next Mustang in the upcoming weeks. Stay tuned!
