2.0 liter four-cylinder EcoBoost engine

Rumors of an EcoBoost-powered Ford Mustang have been around for quite some time now, and why not? Ford has added an EcoBoost option to nearly every car, truck and SUV in their lineup, so it only makes sense that the Mustang would eventually get one as well. Now, according to Car and Driver, those rumors have been confirmed to be true.

During a dinner with Ford executives, Derrick Kuzak, Ford’s group vice president of global product development, acknowledged that an EcoBoost Mustang was on the way. “Given the success we’ve had with EcoBoost across the lineup that we’ve talked about, it’s fair to assume that we will have an EcoBoost Mustang in the very near future,” he told Car and Driver.

So which EcoBoost variant would Ford put in the Mustang? According to C&D, the engine will be a four-cylinder unit similar to the 2.0-liter version seen in the 247 horsepower Focus ST, slotting in below the current 3.7-liter V6. And when can we expect the EcoBoost Mustang to make an official appearance? Car and Driver believes we’ll see it in the next year or two, but we wouldn’t be surprised to see it first appear in the next generation Mustang that will make its debut in 2014 as a 2015 model.
