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.

Ford Posts Strong Second Quarter Earnings
The name Mustang is as intrinsically linked with aviation as it is with automobiles, so it seems appropriate that Ford's latest one-off Mustang build has been inspired by one of America's latest fighter jets. The special 2015 Ford Mustang has been inspired by the Lockheed Martin F-35 Lightning II, and is set to be ...

The 1967 Ford Shelby Mustang GT350 is a classic, red-blooded, American muscle car. While the Mustang line was only three years old in 1967, this didn’t stop the legendary Carroll Shelby from injecting a healthy dose of his ingenuity into the redesigned, 1967 model. These Shelby Mustangs included powerful engines, race-bred transmissions, and strong rear differentials to create the ultimate drag racers. Impressive acceleration, great loo ...

Ben Vereen, Shirley Jones & More At The 3rd Annual Jerry Herman Awards At Hollywood Pantages
Sure, we have the brawny Ford Focus ST. We have its little brother, the Fiesta ST, a 10Best-winning machine so nimble that it makes Ben Vereen look like Lurch. But what Ford hatchback enthusiasts have been demanding for years is an honest-to-Hank RS model. It was posited for some time that the ST might be as quick-tempered as the current generation of Focus would get, but recent spy photos put that notion to rest for good. The lingering rumors that the Must ...

Ford Posts Strong Second Quarter Earnings
Following last week’s official release of the 2015 Mustang’s specs, Ford has unveiled how much kick we can expect out of the all-new F-150. But there’s a catch — the automaker just released figures of the new 2.7-litre EcoBoost V6 engine, as well as the base 3.5-litre V6. First and foremost, the turbocharged 2.7-litre mill pumps out 325 horsepower and 375 lb.-ft. of torque, while maximum towing — based on the new SAE J2807 standards — is r ...

Let’s get this disclaimer out of the way: Without knowing the 2015 Ford Mustang’s full technical specs, pegging the car’s acceleration is nothing more than an educated guess. There are many variables yet unaccounted for, including its all-new architecture, additional standard features, and the new turbocharged four-cylinder EcoBoost engine option. But Ford has finally released the outputs for each of the Mustang’s three available engines—and the curb weights of the cars so e ...
