New, 350 HP Entry-Level Ford Mustang To Premiere In New York?

Ford is said to be readying a new, entry-level Mustang for the New York Auto Show later this month.

Details about the vehicle are scarce at the moment, but Motor1 asserts that the pony car won’t simply be just a base entry into the Mustang family. Instead, it will offer extra performance and may even take the shape of an all-new SVO.

Ford’s existing Mustang range starts off with the 2.3-liter turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder pumping out 310 hp. Tuning companies have shown that this powertrain can support much more power than this, and it’s entirely possible that Ford will amp up the four-cylinder for use in this new Mustang variant. Such a model could be perfect for the Mustang family as there’s currently a 125 hp gap between the EcoBoost model and the V8-powered Mustang GT.

A Mustang for lovers of forced-induction

A document providing VIN decoder information emerged online back in February, indicating the presence of a new four-cylinder Mustang being readied for the 2020 model year. No horsepower figure was listed for this vehicle, though something in the realm of 350 hp seems likely, especially since that engine is already available in the Focus RS.

If the new version does indeed slot between the two current models, it will probably make use of some suspension and chassis adjustments. A number of exterior modifications could also make it that more appealing.

    Don’t diss the 4 pot because of childish thougths like pots and hp. The 4 pot could be a better balanced car and funnier to drive.

      It might even be HILARIOUS to drive!! [just kidding] Yes. It could very well be a better balanced car.

      I have a tuned ecoboost and I love it.. it’s my daily driver..

        It’s pretty underrated and a hell of a bargain… hoping for something a bit more substantial though since like you said even the Ford Racing conservative tunes really change the car. A 2.7t 6 would be great

    Love that a 350hp car Mustang is “entry level.” Hilarious that the Mustang II had a V8 with a “fire breathing” 140hp.
