The names of the 2017 Mustang EcoBoost and the EcoBoost Premium trims also spoil what is under the hood. Both models come equipped with a turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine. But don’t let the lack of cylinders scare you off. Ford’s turbocharger does it’s job well, helping the engine churn out 310 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque. Turbocharging a smaller engine also pays dividends in the fuel economy category. The EcoBoost engine offers the best mileage available on the Mustang, earning an estimated 22 miles per gallon in the city and 31 miles per gallon on the highway.
Next, we come to the Mustang GT and GT Premium trim levels. These two trims answer our initial question. Under the hood the Mustang GT lurks a 5.0-liter V8 engine. This engine produces the best power numbers available on the Mustang, delivering 435 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque.
Regardless of which engine or trim you choose, the 2017 Ford Mustang will deliver stellar sports car performance. If you would like to take one for a test drive, visit us at Akins Ford. Take a look at our selection to learn more about everything we have to offer.
