The new generation of the Mustang
is soon to arrive on our nation’s streets, bringing with it independent rear suspension
, sharp new looks, and, as every enthusiast is eagerly awaiting, a new turbocharged four-cylinder engine. That turbo four Mustang will be called the Mustang EcoBoost.
Speculation as to a possible SVT or SVO badge for the four-cylinder turbo has now been answered. The simple moniker distinguishes it from the V-6 and GT alternatives, and suggests that Ford has no plans to drop a turbo V-6 EcoBoost engine in the car anytime soon, as well.
