On this episode of Ignition, presented by Universal Technical Institute, Carlos Lago drives the first turbo, four-cylinder Mustang in three decades: the EcoBoost. Featuring 310 hp and 320 lb-ft of torque, this Mustang should easily outpace the V-6 and, with half the cylinders, it also boasts less weight over the front end than the GT. Add in a performance package and – finally – independent rear suspension, and this Mustang should prove a lot of fun. Through Motor Trend’s instrumented testing, a visit to Universal Technical Institute’s dyno, a drive on the road, and a Hot Lap, we’ll find out if the EcoBoost has what it takes. Stay tuned for more on the GT.
