here in NoVA it seems the EB far, far outnumber V8. I think Ford's next move is to put the 2.7 Eco v6 in the car as the HiPO but they no doubt had good business reasons to use the 2.3 to keep the Spanish plant viable for a few more years till they figure out where this 'small car' market and regulatory winds are going.Of all the Mustangs I see on my daily commute, a majority are GTs.
Turbo lag? Apparently you haven't driven the 2.3. The factory V8 tune is actually rather numb. Both engines benefit from fixing the throttle maps via aftermarket tunes.Plus lack of turbo lag in the V8 will always make for a much more linear power delivery when throttle is applied.
I mentioned this in the post you quoted. It is on my to do list, as I'll probably end up picking up a new 2020 EB manual end of next year, when Ford likes to throw a lot of money on the table to make room for 2021 models. I'm seeing some large discounts on the 2019s, but the timing isn't right for me now.Apparently you haven't driven the 2.3.
Agreed. The 2.7 seems unlikely. Volume doesn't justify a third completely different drivetrain. They're not going to replace the 2.3EB with the 2.7EB because they need the CAFE numbers. Electric assist could benefit both performance and fuel economy if they can keep the weight down.Ford will go electric assist, before they do v6 turbo.
I am on my 5th F150.I’ve mention this before but it’s only a matter of time before the Mustang GT is offered with a V6 EcoBoost and V8. I remember the shock when both engines were offered with the F150 and many years later, it’s a nonissue with many hardcore truck enthusiast. I see Ford doing the same with the Mustang and offering both the V6 EcoBoost and V8 at some point in the future.
Another Ford anomaly. You can delete the spoiler on the GT PP1, but not on the PP2. You should then be able to delete the spoiler on the HPP without the Handling Package.This high performance line should be available with a spoiler delete and no wing.
Some of us like a classical trunk line
I blew one of my gf’s explorer EcoBoost turbos first t8me I drove it. When she got it back I blew the second turbo the next day. Realized right then that EcoBoost anything wasn’t for me. Went out and got a 5.0 and got boost. That being said My local dealer has 2020 HPP and We are for sure test driving it as soon as I can. Make a nice replacement for my Chevy Malibu that I dailyI am on my 5th F150.
2 5.0's...no issues
3.5 TT...no issues
and now a 2.7 TT
All treated me will. And no reason to believe my 2.7 will be any different. But there was a lot of negativity about the TT's first. Now no one, well most, really don't care. Like you said...."Non issue"
But I still cant see myself in a V6 or I4 mustang. The 5.0 just sounds too good.
