2019 New York Motor Show: 2020 Ford Mustang EcoBoost High Performance Package Unveiled
Ford recently showcased a new variant of the Mustang with a 2.3-litre turbo-charged petrol engine and could be called as a more performance oriented version of the entry-level Mustang!
The Ford Mustang 2.3-litre High Performance Package will not be coming to India
.Think Ford Mustang and the first thing that you associate the muscle car with is a massive 5.0-litre V8 motor. But even though Ford offers only the V8 in India, there exists a variant of the Mustang with four cylinders and this model is a slightly extreme version of the standard EcoBoost Mustang. Under the bonnet, the Mustang gets the same 2.3-litre turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder petrol engine as on the standard model but it now makes 330 bhp and 475 Nm, which is just 20 bhp more. There is a 6-speed manual or a 10-speed automatic transmission available as well. The 0-100 kmph sprint is done in less than 5 seconds and the car has a top speed of 250 kmph. The rear axle ratio is now shorter at 3:55, which is also one of the reasons for quicker acceleration.
