Ford has promised that the EcoBoost engine in the Mustang will provide more usable horsepower and torque than the base V6. “This EcoBoost engine delivers where a Mustang driver expects it to, with a broad, flat torque curve that pours out when you stand on it for easy passing or hustling down a twisty road,” said Dave Pericak, Ford Mustang chief engineer.

A high-pressure die-cast aluminum cylinder block is used featuring a structural ladder frame and integrated main bearing caps to ensure longevity and durability.

Ford implemented a lightweight composite intake manifold that both saves weight and provides excellent air flow to the cylinder head.

Along with the use of direct injection, the twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) allows the 2.3-liter turbocharged engine to produce more power and torque while remaining as fuel efficient as possible. The Ti-VCT allows the engine to retard the timing of both the intake and exhaust camshafts independently, particularly at low rpm, to improve both output and efficiency.
