Ford Considers Diesel and Electric Power for future Mustang

Dec 9 2013, 12:29pm CST | by

A diesel Mustang!?

Ford only recently unveiled the 2015 Mustang and its is an all-new car. The new Mustang gets independent rear suspension and new engine options. The car can now be had with a turbo charged 2.3L EcoBoost 4-cylinder making the first time since the 80's a turbo four has been available in the Mustang.

In the future, Ford is looking at ways to get the new global Mustang more efficient and green. Go Auto reports that to meet the green goals Ford is considering electric, hybrid, and even diesel power. Ford wants to sell a lot of Mustangs outside of the US and diesel is a common choice for drivers in Europe.

Hybrid power is also becoming common on sports cars all around the world. I really see no call for an all-electric Mustang. Future Mustangs might also get the nine and ten speed transmissions Ford and GM are working on together.

Hellcat Hunting: Roush Supercharger Kit Boosts 2015 Mustang GT to 600+hp

Nov 4 2014 1:17pm CST | Source: Car and Driver

When Roush introduced a trio of 2015 Ford Roush RS Mustangs last month, they were missing one rather important thing: more power. But we figured that Roush wouldn’t stand to offer all show and no go, at least not for long. And now we know what the firm was holding back: a supercharger kit capable of bringing the Mustang GT’s Coyote V-8 from its stock 430 horsepower to more than 600 thundering ponies. The better news is that the supercharger kit can be ad ...

2015 Mustang EcoBoost VS. Merkur XR4Ti

Oct 31 2014 2:45pm CDT | Source: Jalopnik

Being the owner of a Merkur XR4Ti and the son of another XR owner, we were both very excited when we heard Ford was reviving the 2.3 Turbo engine in the Mustang. The Mustang hasn't been powered by a 2.3 Turbo since the SVO which ended production in 1986 and featured the same engine that was slotted into a Sierra body to create the Merkur XR4Ti. The new EcoBoost Mustang is the closest we will get to hav ...
