Ford is building an ‘entry-level’ performance Mustang

first_img This engine choice would also give Ford the opportunity to revive the SVO name from the Fox-body generation of Mustang, which also featured a hopped-up four-cylinder that was ultimately lighter and more nimble than its equally powerful V8 brothers (each pumped out 205 ponies at the time).There is also a second, less likely powertrain option still on the table: the 3.7-litre EcoBoost V6.Ford dropped the V6 from the Mustang’s powertrain options back in 2015 when it introduced the latest generation, but it’s possible the chassis could still support the engine, giving the model some 325 horsepower. We already know the V6 can be tuned up to much wilder horsepower numbers, as well.
