A tip given to Jalopnik states that Ford chairman Bill Ford Jr. confirmed that an Ecoboost engine will appear in the Mustang, although a timeline and engine specifications were not provided.

While speaking at Princeton University, Ford was asked by an audience member about the possibility of an Ecoboost Mustang. Ford confirmed that the turbocharged engine would reach Ford’s pony car, but no further information was revealed. Ford current Ecoboost 4-cylinder is capable of up to 247 horsepower, while the 3.5L Ecoboost V6 is good for as much as 365 horsepower. While power is somewhat diminished compared to larger V6 and V8 engines respectively, fuel economy figures make up for the performance deficit.

It’s conceivable that either application could find its way under the hood of a Mustang. A 4-cylinder Ecoboost would be a potent competitor to smaller engined cars like the Hyundai Genesis (and certainly the Mustang V6 is now a legitimate performance car in its own right), while an Ecoboost V6 could bridge the gap between the regular V6 and the 5.0 V8. Jalopnik has suggested that the “SVO” trim, which used a 2.3L turbo 4-cylinder in the 1980s, could return, but there’s little evidence to back up that notion. Then again, Ford did revive the 5.0 badge, and with children of the 1980s now in a position to buy a Mustang, it might just happen.

2010-chevrolet-camaro-6101

For the first time in 25 years, the Chevrolet Camaro has outsold the Ford Mustang, beating the Blue Oval’s pony car by roughly 8,000 units, with 81,371 Camaros sold.

More surprising is that the Camaro managed to unseat the Mustang despite the lack of a convertible version. A droptop Camaro won’t bow untill mid-2011. Despite Ford’s far superior driving dynamics, build quality, and well…everything…the Camaro has somehow captured the hearts and minds of Americans, and the upcoming ragtop, not to mention the Z28 range-topper will only help keep the streak going. Now if only they would stoop to the 1980′s nostalgia of the 5.0 and introduce an IROC package.

A raft of new engines has helped Ford‘s Mustang leapfrog the Chevrolet Camaro in the pony car sales race, the first victory for the Blue Oval since the Camaro’s release last summer. Ford managed to sell 10,225 Mustangs, while Chevy only moved 8,931 ‘Maros in the month of May.

While most critics considered the Mustang to be dynamically superior, the Camaro was always a favorite with consumers due to the big power and aggressive styling. Now that Ford has leveled the playing field with their 3.7L V6 and the nostalgia-evoking 5.0L V8, the Mustang has the chops to take on the Camaro, and consumers are noticing.

2010-chevy-camaro-ss-07

We’ll start with the (sort of) bad news. The 2011 Chevrolet Camaro will cost you more – but not too much more – as the model year changes over. The top of the line 2LT and 2SS get a $350 price bump, to $28,075 and $35,145 respectively. Prices for the LS, 1LT and 1SS models remain unchanged, and the 2011 Ford Mustang will still be a bit cheaper than the Camaro.

For all the talk of rising gas prices, global warming and oil spills, the muscle car wars appear to be heating back up again, much to the delight of car fans, and the disdain of everybody else on this planet. At least this time, the fuel economy numbers are in the double digits.
