The future generation of the Ford Mustang will only become available with an EcoBoost based engine on the Old Continent, once the model will arrive sometimes next year.
Rumors on Ford sharing the same engine on the Focus ST and on the Mustang have been recently confirmed, unfortunately, and the future generation of the popular muscle car will only come with an EcoBoos based engine in Europe. This could be the beginning of the end of the Mustang in Europe because a muscle car is only bought because of its large engine and impressive torque, and with that gone away, the Mustang will probably be buried under a pile of dust in showrooms.
According to the guys at mustang6g.com, the eight-cylinder engine will still be available for buyers in Europe but Ford didn’t confirm this just yet. The new EcoBoost based engine which will make its way under the hood of the future Mustang generation will be based on the 2.0 liter four-cylinder found on the ST and its output is expected to be increased from 250 HP (184 kW) to 300 HP (220 kW), along with its displacement, from 2.0 liters to 2.3 liters. Additional details on the 2015 Mustang remain limited for the moment.
