Ford tried something different with the introduction of the Mustang EcoBoost. This special trim level is able to offer both impressive performance numbers and practical fuel economy ratings. Adding even more to these capabilities will be the new Ford Mustang EcoBoost available added performance packages that have just been announced.
Powering the 2017 Ford Mustang EcoBoost is an impressive turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine. This engine is able to deliver 310 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque in its standard form without any additional tuning or upgrades.
Even though the EcoBoost engine produces over 300 horsepower, fuel economy ratings on the engine are still impressive. EcoBoost Mustang models are able to earn an estimated 22 miles per gallon in the cities and 31 miles per gallon on the highways. Very few 300 plus horsepower cars can match these numbers.
Ford has just announced that a special performance package will now be available on the Mustang EcoBoost and EcoBoost Premium trim levels. The Ford Performance Mustang EcoBoost calibration kit utilizes special tuning to draw even more power out of the turbocharged engine.
This special performance kit pushes the power ratings on the EcoBoost Mustang up to 335 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. These are jumps by 25 horsepower and 70 pound-feet of torque over the standard tuning.
The performance package is available on Mustang EcoBoost models from the 2015 model year and newer.
