Ford Unleashes Line-Lock & Cluster Animation on Mustang EcoBoost

DEARBORN, Mich., – More rubber meets the road later this year when Ford expands the availability of electronic line-lock on 2018 Mustang. The track-exclusive feature – previously available only on V8-powered Mustang GT – will be standard on all pony cars, including those equipped with 2.3-liter EcoBoost® engines.

The feature is available with either the 10-speed SelectShift® automatic or six-speed manual transmission.

On models equipped with an available 12-inch, all-digital instrument display, drivers will see an industry-first, video-game-like animation of a spinning alloy wheel kicking up a cloud of smoke to indicate when the electronic line-lock feature is activated.

“Burnouts just never get old, no matter how old you are and how many times you’ve done them,” said Vaughn Gittin Jr., Formula Drift Champion. “Who would have thought that we would see an EcoBoost Mustang producing 15 seconds of fury like this? You’ve got to love these rad things Ford is doing.”

Re: Ford Unleashes Line-Lock & Cluster Animation on Mustang EcoBoost

No announcement yet on turbo engine specs, but soon I think. Usually Ford likes to cluster product news within short spans to keep the talk alive. That could include GT500 news.

As for the little pony car motor that can.....I am guessing that 310hp / 320ftlbs will bump to 325 / 340. There needs to be a significant amount, after all, to justify a new feature like this.
