2015 Mustang Ecoboost | The Next-Gen Mustang Will Surely Impress
Posted on 09 December 2014
Are you as excited for the 2015 Mustang Ecoboost as we are?
It will forever be known as "the year of the Ecoboost" as Ford launches it's 2015 Ecoboost Mustang.
For generations, the Ford Mustang
has been on the top of the domestic performance world, crushing competitors Chevy Camaro
and Dodge Charger
in many ways. It's large V8 engine has been the biggest reason for it's dominance, and the power numbers it's been able to produce over the years have been nothing short of awesome. This has led to a large aftermarket following and crowds of gearheads at Ford sponsored car shows across the globe.

But all that is about to change in 2015 when Ford will begin packing it's most popular engine bay with it's newly redesigned 2.3L Turbocharged I4 powerplant. It will be called the 2015 Mustang Ecoboost
, and will pack a boisterous 310whp / 320wtq to the rear wheels, with help from the twin-scroll turbocharger. The Mustang Ecoboost 0-60 spec
is impressive as well - providing a time of 5.6 seconds and hammering down the 1/4 mile in 14.1 seconds.
The Ecoboost Mustang
definitely has very impressive numbers off the showroom floor, which poses an interesting question for like-minded readers of this blog. "What can we expect the Mustang Ecoboost aftermarket parts scene to look like?" A very good question indeed.

We expect a ton of parts ranging from your common mild bolt-on's like cold air intakes, catback exhausts, plug and play tuner modules, and suspension upgrades. We also expect a large variety of aftermarket performance parts to enhance the power of the 2015 Ecoboost Mustang
including downpipes, turbocharger upgrades, and perhaps even tubular turbo manifolds. The list is endless.
We will have to keep an eye on the aftermarket as the Ecoboost Mustang continues to roll off the showroom floor and we progress through 2015. Keep an eye on the MAPerformance
