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

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.

That's the first I've read of the EB3.5L V6 being available. And, if it is, it's about time for Ford to pull more power out of it for RWD vehicles. Maybe that's going to be in the recently rumored GT350; makes sense to me. No mention of the oft mentioned new EB 2.3L I4, which I had hoped would bring a revival of the SVO nameplate. Lastly, the EB 5.0L V8 would make a great GT500

Maybe with the rumor that the next Camaro will get that new twin turbo V6 from the CTS, Ford will drop a EB V6 into the 2015 model.

That new GM TTV6 would've made for a great Turbo Trans Am. Just sayin'...

Why the 3.5 when they already have the 3.7?

I chose the 3.5L because if only having a smaller displacement, it should return slightly better fuel economy than the 3.7L - maybe 1 or 2 mpg city and highway. Couple that with the lighter '15 chassis, fuel economy should improve a bit more (maybe a total of 3/3 over the '14's base engine's 19/31) while returning similarly strong performance as the bigger plant in the heavier car. Throw in an 8 speed automatic and who knows? Maybe 22/35? Maybe better??
