If you're making a big horsepower chart on the wall in your underground
bunker, we have some 2015 Ford Mustang numbers for you to fill in.
Starting with the smaller engines, Ford says the V6 and EcoBoost 2015 Ford Mustang
4-cylinder will be making 300 and 310 respectively. We're a little
surprised to see the 6-cylinder down from the 2014 power rating of 305hp,
but maybe they don¹t want to outshine the little turbo mill? What do you
guys think about that little turbo four anyway? We of course, would rather
see a turbo eight.
Now that would be a beastly set-up. As it is, we'll
have to wait for shockingly big horsepower numbers from Ford. The 5.0
gains only 15 ponies from 2014, for a V8 rated at 435 hp and 400 lb-ft of
torque. Do you know something we don't? On the plus side, the 2015 Ford Mustang is certainly lighter than previous generations and each model can be ordered with a manual transmission.
What's Ford got up their sleeves
for performance packages on the Ford Mustang? Surely they won¹t let the Hellcat and LT4 walk
away with 2015 uncontested, will they?
