    Could The Next Generation Mustang Be Sold As A Capri In Europe?

    An article from Autoevolution introduces a speculative rendering of a new Capri which looks simular to the Evos and some Mustang renderings. Could "One Ford" use the Capri name in Europe for the next gen Mustang?

    Doubt it, I think they already said that it will be a Mustang period

    that should just have the side vents removed & be called the EVOS
    otoh
    quote:
    "...as this car would be based on a front-wheel drive platform, probably that of the new Fusion/Mondeo. An all-wheel drive version would also be plausible, as well as a hot all-wheel driven version, powered by the turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 EcoBoost engine, currently found under the bonnet of the Taurus SHO - it makes 365 hp, yet it could undoubtedly be tuned to make even more, with ease..."
    imho
    it should just be a "Fusion Coupe"/"Mondeo3" for the 4cyls
    & COULD be the "Lincoln Zevos" for the v6's + unique: front&rear panels&interior

    My hope is that Ford uses the EB 3.5L V6 on a special Mustang like the Mach1.

    Ford have many good engines for the next Mustang: two or three V8 ; 3,5 V6 ; 3,7 V6 ; Ecoboost 3,5 V6; 2,0 I4 Ecoboost, the rumored 2,3 I4 Ecoboost... one engine for every customers taste and money

    I don't think the normal 3.5 will be offered in the next Mustang, maybe the 3.7 but who knows its possible the 2.3 could replace it

    Why didn't the hardtop convertible return with the Focus? In the past, Ford and Volvo had a version. I would think this or maybe Fusion could make a better Capri rebirth.

    If a V6 is offered, and it likely will be, the extra MPG that the 3.5L offers over the 3.7L is worth it especially with the anticipated weight loss. Let Lincoln and the PIs get the 3.7L while the Fords use the 3.5L. If the Mustang 3.7L is getting 19/31 now, the lighter model with the 3.5L could get 21/33 or better depending on other variables.

    Not that I know anything, but I'm hoping for a couple ecoboost 4's, a base between 250-300hp, the 2.3 around 350hp, then the big dog 5.0. The little turbo fours put out hp numbers equivalent to the 3.7 v6 and will have a broader, strong torque curve!
