Remember the Ford Mustang SVO with it’s turbocharged engine? The Blue Oval might just dust off that old badge for a new forced induction ‘Stang, but it won’t be a turbo 4-cylinder. In fact, with earlier confirmation that the Mustang will get an Ecoboost engine, it might not be a version of the SHO’s twin-turbo 3.5L V6 either.

Instead, there’s another option for Ford, with an announcement that the company’s Lima, Ohio, engine plant will build a small displacement V6. But an EcoBoost V6? Perhaps.

While Ford won’t confirm any details the new mill is expected to be in the 2.5L to 3.0L range, with power around 300-hp and 300 lb-ft of torque. After all, output would have to sit somewhere between the EcoBoost 2.0L with 247-hp and 266 lb-ft and the 3.5L V6 with 365-hp and 420 lb-ft. Along with the Mustang, the new small EcoBoost V6 could replace all 3.5L and 3.7L V6 engines in everything from the Fusion to the Taurus, as well as the Edge, Explorer, F-150 and yes, even the Mustang.
