    Post Article: 2015 Mustang getting six engine options, including new Ecoboost V8

    Interesting new info from this Automobile article: > http://www.mustang6g.com/forums/showthread.php?t=609

    They claim that the current GT500 engine can't fit in the smaller new 2015 model so it will be dropped and replaced with a small displacement EcoBoost V8 instead. They also list 5 other engines coming to the next gen model.

    If the production version looks like this, will be the most atractive Mustang ever

    Re: Article: 2015 Mustang getting six engine options, including new Ecoboost V8

    Thanks for posting, Lysius

    at first I completely wrote off their saying the nextgen Stang would "premiere" at NYC2014 instead of at NAIAS2014
    then
    thought about how I'd really like Lincoln to show the full year's worth of their vehicles ALL AT ONCE in Detroit
    AND
    the idea that if the Mustang wasN'T shown at NAIAS, that would STILL be the Ford most Talked about
    so
    guess they don't even NEED to show it in Detroit for the ngStang to steal the show.

    & hmmm...
    600-700hp - EcoBoost 5.0 Coyote Engine for the GT500
    410-440hp - N/A 5.0 Coyote Engine for the Boss 302 (and presumably the GT)
    365-490hp - EcoBoost 3.5L V6
    305hp ------ N/A 3.7L V6
    240-280hp - EcoBoost 2.0L 4-cylinder
    ...they left out the
    325hp ------ 2.3EB4

    Wow, don't mean to be contradictory, but to my eyes that is Mustang II level of ugly!! The proportions are just a complete mess IMO!!

    Looks too much like a FWD car.
    I had a similar idea too, here's a chop I made before.

    cool, AM222

    only think the HLs and fascia will be significantly diff
    here's my current WiP

    hood is wrong (see clay thread) & thinking of LEDs between the grille and wheel for low/running beams/lights & turnsigs, sorta recalling the little "gill" indents of the original

    This car is too High if indeed it is close to the image... (Not by aluminum alone...)
    5 Engine Options, yes - until the (marketing/financial) do due diligence and select the pluses vs minuses and the best marketing strategy.
    Eco-boost Coyote YES! in a very BIG way: better use of power, better controls, better return.
    Take on the V12s ANY V12 and get better economy.
    Now we can use the F1/Indy racing motor experience from Ford V8s that is the winningest motor built.
    Re: higher cost = best turbos, best engine management... This is the way to go.
    IRS: again cost, pluses/minuses. The 'drag' boys won't be too happy but they get a Ford 9"er aftermarket anyway.
    Rear Drive Lincoln: WELCOME BACK.
    Now, how about a real LINCOLN.
    Full size (today's full size) and an extended version to give the limo boys the best car in the market again.
    Entry Level: Yes the MKZ is a great car (test drive one and you will see).
    We need a coupe and convertible in the true Mark tradition - elegance, control, comfort for at least 4 humans.
    Lastly, The Next launch that we have should be the best launch.
    Go Lincoln!

    I have a hard time believing that article. Here is my question for all of you gurus. Is the EB 2.7 Nano V6 just a rumor or is Ford really working on this? Seems like this would be a perfect base engine for the Mustang to me instead of a 4 banger.
