2016 Ford Mustang EcoBoost Horsepower and Fuel Economy Ratings

Ford has built a long run of success around turbocharging smaller engines to improve power and provide great fuel economy ratings. The EcoBoost engine line has become extremely successful on almost the entire Ford lineup. But would an engine like this work on a sports car? The 2016 Ford Mustang EcoBoost horsepower and fuel economy ratings will make you think differently about the prospects of a four-cylinder engine powering a sports car.

EcoBoost Engine Horsepower

At the core of the Mustang EcoBoost is a 2.3-liter, turbocharged, four-cylinder engine. Offering 310 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque, this engine is able to outperform the 300-horsepower 3.7-liter V6 offered on the base Mustang and sits behind only the Mustang GT’s 5.0-liter 435-horsepower V8 in the power ratings.

Even with all of this power, the Mustang EcoBoost still delivers the fuel economy ratings the engine line has become known for. The Mustang EcoBoost checks in at an estimated 21 city/31 highway miles per gallon, by far the best fuel economy ratings available on any Mustang model.

Upgrading to the EcoBoost Premium increases the comfort features, adding heated exterior mirrors, rear diffuser, ambient interior lighting, selectable drive modes, dual-zone climate control, heated and ventilated front seats, a nine-speaker sound system, the Sync 3 infotainment system and leather upholstery.
