Poll: Ford Mustang GT or Ford Mustang EcoBoost?

8

The Ford Mustang is an American icon. No matter which flavor or body-style you get, this car is instantly recognizable anywhere it goes.

But which version do you prefer? Would you rather have a GT model or one with that fancy new EcoBoost engine? Vote in our latest poll and let’s see which variant is more popular!

GTs feature an intoxicating 5.0-liter V8 that LOVES to rev like disgraced pharmaceutical executive Martin Shkreli enjoyed screwing sickly patients. This delicious engine delivers a scrumptious amount of power and torque, 435 and 400, respectively. It can be matched to either a six-speed manual transmission or an automatic with the same number of ratios. But let’s be honest, you should really be getting the one with three pedals …

On the other hand, you can still have plenty of rear-wheel-drive fun for a lot less money if you opt for a Mustang with the company’s new 2.3-liter EcoBoost turbocharged four-cylinder engine. This little dynamo puts out a totally respectable 310 horses and 320 lb-ft of twist. But perhaps even better than this is the fact that it’s A LOT more fuel efficient. With a six-speed stick it should average 23 miles to a gallon of gasoline. The GT can only muster 19 MPG.

So which is it? A smoother, better sounding, more powerful V8 or a turbo-four that’s cheaper up front and much more economical to operate? Let us know; vote in our latest poll! Also, you can compare these two models right here.
