A new report is indicating that the controversial version of the new Ford Mustang generation is producing just 275 HP when running on regular unleaded fuel.
Ford has evolved with its times and added a four-cylinder engine to its iconic muscle car, the Mustang, for its new generation. This is one controversial version of the model because, for the first time ever, it is packing a four-cylinder unit under its hood. Now, according to a recent report published by Mustang6G, the vehicle in question is producing just 275 HP (205 kW) and 406 Nm (300 lb-ft) of torque when running on regular unleaded 87 octane fuel.
This is significantly more than what the Mustang EcoBoost is good for when filled with premium unleaded 93 octane, which is 310 HP (231 kW) and 433 Nm (320 lb-ft) of torque. This, of course, isn’t the only vehicle affected by the type of petrol used in it but it is still a good reminder on how big of a difference makes the right fuel choice.
The new generation of the Ford Mustang is offered with a choice of three engines, the 3.6 liter V6, for the entry-level, with 300 HP (223 kW) and 365 Nm (270 lb-ft) of torque, while the mid-range EcoBoost, mentioned above, is good for 305 HP (227 kW) and 406 Nm (300 lb-ft), in the official figures. The range topping Mustang GT has a 5.0 liter V8 engine under its hood, producing 420 HP (313 kW) and 528 Nm (390 lb-ft) of torque.
