2015 Mustang Engine
2015 Mustang Engine
V6 Power Comes Standard
The base model 2015 Mustang comes equipped with a 3.7L V6 engine- the same engine that anchored the previous generation Mustang line. Retuned to deliver 300 horsepower at 6500 RPM and 280 foot-pounds of torque at 4000 RPM, the new 2015 V6 engine has a fuel economy that rivals most family vehicles. With a manual transmission, you can expect to see 17 mpg in the city and 28 mpg highway, while automatic transmissions see a slight gain at 19 mpg during city driving and 28 mpg while cruising the highway.
Hear The Call Of The Coyote
To many Mustang owners and enthusiasts, a Mustang isn't truly a Mustang unless it has a V8 engine under the hood. The 2015 Mustang GT does not disappoint, with a redesigned 5.0 liter V8 Coyote engine that puts out an impressive 435 horsepower at 6500 RPM with 400 foot-pounds of torque at 4250 RPM. By combining the 2014 Coyote engine in the GT with the internal workings of the 2012-2013 Boss 302 Coyote engine, Ford was able to develop an engine that is sure to give Mustang aficionados the power and performance they have been longing for.
Rise Of The EcoBoost Mustang
New in 2015 is the option for an EcoBoost Mustang engine. In an effort to appeal to more fuel-conscious drivers overseas in the European and Asian markets, Ford has developed this 2.3 liter inline-4 cylinder, twin-scroll turbocharged engine to possess all the power a Mustang should have while improving fuel economy. The EcoBoost engine generates 310 horsepower at 5000 RPM and 320 foot-pounds of torque at 3000 RPM, making it comparable to the V6 engine in every aspect. The new EcoBoost engine achieves 21 mpg city and 32 mpg highway with the automatic transmission, while the manual transmission has slightly improved city economy at 22 mpg city and 31 mpg highway. This lets EcoBoost buyers choose their transmission based on their preferred driving style, rather than based on engine performance.
What To Expect Beyond 2015
Those who have been following Mustangs for years know that Ford has the tendency to change things up a year or two after introducing a new build, as new technologies become available. Don't be surprised if different or variations of engine options are announced for the 2016 Mustang and beyond.
