Earlier reports that the 2015 Ford Mustang will get a turbocharged 4-cylinder EcoBoost exclusively for the European market have turned out to be false. That turbo 4-banger is headed to America too.

When the 2015 Ford Mustang hits American dealerships, it’ll be offered with a 2.3-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine as an option – and chances are, that won’t be the base model engine. The American automaker has shown throughout its lineup that its EcoBoost engines are a premium upgrade and will continue to do so with its sports car.

As we speculated earlier, the 2.3-liter EcoBoost that will show up in the 2015 ‘Stang will be a larger variant of the 2.0-liter currently found in the Focus ST. But with its larger displacement, it’s expected to push out over 300 hp. Considering that the current base engine 3.7-liter V6 has 305 hp, the EcoBoost offering should improve on that number. Of course, true Mustang enthusiasts will continue to embrace the top-of-the-line V8.

    well if anyone has noticed they are offering the v6 twin turbo eco boost for the f150 fx4 eco boost. i do not think it will be too long before we start seeing that in the mustangs. it woold be the best way to go i think. but ultimately a twin turbo v8 eco boost would be my dream. maybe one day.
