Ford Motor Company has just announced a new Ford Performance Power Package for the 2015+ EcoBoost Mustang and while this kit is “only” an engine calibration, the gains are significant – with the tuned 2.3L EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine offering 335 horsepower and 390lb-ft of torque. Patrick Rall reports for TorqueNews.com.
Although the 4-cylinder engine is heavily criticized by the “muscle cars should only have a V8” crowd, the 2015+ Ford Mustang with the EcoBoost engine is an impressive performance car. With a combination of 310 horsepower and 320lb-ft of torque, the EcoBoost 4-cylinder is far more powerful than the current base V6 and it is more powerful than the Mustang GT from the previous generation, which offered just 300 horsepower in 2009.
Numbers aside, I have driven the new Ford Mustang with the EcoBoost engine and I can say, without a doubt, that it is better than the V6 Mustang. For a new car shopper who isn’t so concerned with big horsepower, but wants a little lower purchase price and better fuel economy, the EcoBoost Mustang is the most enjoyable non-V8 muscle car of the modern era.
Even though the EcoBoost Mustang is marketed as a sort of economy-performance model, Ford Performance has cooked up a tuning package which lifts the performance of the turbocharged 2.3L engine to levels just below the 5.0L V8.
Xbox France is giving away the awesome Ford Mustang inspired Xbox One console shown in the image above and the video below to one lucky gamer in conjunction with the launch of Forza Horizon 3, and as an avid Forza gamer – I am very jealous that we don’t have the opportunity to win something like this here in the US market.
Patrick Rall reports for TorqueNews.com Ford in this original story.
Forza Horizon 3 is the newest open-world racing game for Xbox One and I have been playing (and loving) the early release Ultimate Edition since last week. The basic version of the game went on sale today and to celebrate the launch in Europe, Xbox France is giving away an Xbox One S console with a copy of Forza Horizon 3, but they aren’t giving away just any Xbox One console – they are giving away a console with a custom box, designed after the look of the first generation Ford Mustang.
Frankly, as someone who is very active in the Xbox gaming community – particularly with regards to the Forza games – I am jealous that we don’t have a chance to buy consoles themed after specific performance cars. I don’t have to think twice about saying that this is, without a doubt, the coolest Xbox One console that I have ever seen and while the Ford Mustang wouldn’t be my first choice, I would absolutely buy a muscle car shaped Xbox One Console.
Ford is recalling about 830,000 vehicles in the U.S. and Mexico because parts in the side door latches can break and the doors can open while the vehicles are moving.
The recall announced Thursday covers certain 2013 to 2015 Ford Escape SUVs and C-Max cars, and 2012 to 2015 Focus cars. Also included are 2014 to 2016 Ford Transit Connect vans, and Ford Mustang sports cars and Lincoln MKC SUVs from 2015.
