2015 Ford Mustang Ecoboost Engine Bay

The New 2.3L EcoBoost Looks Right at Home in the 2015 Mustang Engine

Although Ford has talked about the new 2.3L EcoBoost in the 2015 Mustang at length, the company has been careful not to show off the underhood area of the new EcoBoost Mustang but thanks to an onlooker who was quick with the cell phone camera, we have a video showing the new turbocharged Mustang engine.

I should start by pointing out the fact that the engine shown in the screen shot above and the video below showing the 2.3L EcoBoost mill under the hood of the 2015 Ford Mustang wasn’t meant to be shown off. Even on the media days at the 2014 North American International Auto Show, we didn’t get to check out the engine bay of the newest Mustang, but during the setup process someone from Ford had the hood of a new EcoBoost-powered 2015 Mustang open and it quickly drew a crowd. In that crowd was a member of the Hooniverse team who whipped out the old cell phone and caught 8 seconds of video of the EcoBoost engine in the new Mustang.

It's about time that Mustang became a true contemporary with competitors on the World stage. If "purist" means predisposed to the past, remember that when originally introduced, Mustang was innovative and sensational. It's time to be that again, and the 2015 Mustang seems to be leading us "back to the future." Where do I sign?
Agreed. I was going to trade in my trusty steed (2005 Mustang GT) on something less gas guzzling at the end of this year or early 2015. Hadn't even considered a new Mustang because I wanted significantly better MPG. Then Ford rolled out the new Mustang with the Ecoboost option. Barring any reports of crazy problems, I'll be getting one of these, although I'm patient to wait out the initial rush.
