A new report and discovery from a recent NHTSA VIN filing made by Ford reveals the company’s plans to once again offer three engine options for the 2020 Mustang when it begins production later this year.

The NHTSA filing lists not one, but two 2.3-liter I-4 engines — the first of which is the 310-horsepower EcoBoost serving duty as the current base Mustang engine. The second 2.3-liter EcoBoost shows the horsepower as to-be-determined, although sources of Hagerty claim this will be a new, high-powered 2.3-liter engine.

The publication goes on to speculate that the new engine could even produce as much as 350-horsepower like that in the Focus RS. Given the amount of shared engine components, this seems plausible.
