I know this is a Mach 1 thread, but EU no longer gets the EcoBoost Mustang, GTs or Mach 1s only? Lind of strange with their eco-centric governments.

There is a topic here about it from June. Most probably it's because of lower sales, people want the V8 and don't care about EU emissions crap.

The cancellation of the EcoBoost Mustang was a decision by Ford Europe themselves. It only sold well in certain smaller countries with sky high CO2 emission based taxes and even there sales were dwindling. In the major markets like the UK and Germany the GT has had a sales mix percentage of over 80% from the get go. Which is actually even significantly higher than in the US. With the arrival of the new WLTP emissions testing method (which disadvantages turbo engines) Ford Europe decided to no longer invest in homologating the EcoBoost, because the new CO2 value was so high it would become unsalable. Funny enough the NA GT's emissions are actually about 10 grams lower under the new WLTP method.
