    Rumorpile: Turbocharged Four-Cylinder Mustang.. Destined For Europe Only UPDATED: Or Maybe Not


    By William Maley

    March 8, 2013

    If you have been keeping track on the whole pile of rumors concerning the next-generation Focus RS, you would know that the engine being talked about would possibly be shared with the next-generation Mustang. The engine in question is a turbocharged 2.3L unit that will be based on the Focus ST's 2.0L and produce somewhere in the range of 300+ horsepower.

    Now for some bad news for those who were hoping for a return of the Mustang SVO in the states. Edmunds is reporting that that the four-cylinder will only be available for European customers when introduced. The reason for this is that the V8 Mustang would be taxed higher due to high emissions. The four-cylinder option allows Ford to offer a lower-emissions model which means less tax.

    UPDATE: So the U.S. will be getting the four-cylinder turbocharged Mustang, at least that is what Road & Track is reporting. R&T is also saying the turbo-four will not be the base engine, most likely sitting between the V6 and V8 engines.

    Our thoughts? We're going to be on the wait and see if this happens or not.

    I do not think this will have the gas mileage they think it will have. Turbo's continue to show great mileage when driven like a slow mo senior, but when enjoyed with the power they can produce, mileage is in the toilet.

    Give me a normal aspiration v6 or v8. The people of Europe need to rebel against the socialist slave masters and demand being able to drive what they want without being told what you can drive.

    CAFE makes a 4 cylinder Mustang (and Camaro) inevitable sooner rather than later. I know things will never be as bad as the 88 hp 2.3L in the Fox Mustangs, but I still prefer a V6.

    europe = displacement tax, i bet the euro one only gets a 2.3

    The Euro mustang should be AWD option too. In fact, if i were ever interested in a mustang I would want AWD too.

    • what if an Awd version used front-electrics instead of an origami driveshaft arrangement?

    • what if it was only available as a considerable upcharge?

    • what if it wasn't called a 'Mustang'?

    • what if it WAS a Lincoln?

    AWD would just add weight. Road & Track is reporting the US will get the turbo also.

    the only way I would ever consider a mustang or camaro is if it had AWD on the option sheet....because of the snow bit. If i could ever afford a toy car, then that would exempt that. But affording one car for starters means said car has to get around 4 seasons and not just be for fun.

    Considering how popular cars like the Eclipse and WRX were with turbo+AWD, I think there would be a bigger market for it than you think. Lots of youngsters who dig Audis and such with the Quattro + turbo may then be able to be attracted to with this car.

    I wouldn't do the v6 or v8 with it though. That is part of the allure of this 2.3t is to pair it with AWD as an option. It may not be a tire shredder but it would add something new to the mustang stable.

    Snow tires on all 4 corners...that's how I drove a Mustang in NE Ohio for 6 winters back in the day before I got an SUV.

    In the pacific northwest, anything AWD is preferred, then 4x4 and then FWD or RWD.

    With all the hills and the outdoor life style, people want the added traction going into the mountains and getting around the hills here.

    In Colorado, I always parked my Mustang GT and M3 when the weather got bad and drove my Jeep. A Mustang will always be a #2 or #3 car for me (unless I were living some place nice that has no foul winters like So Cal or South Florida).

    As far a 4cyl Mustang, I'd like to drive one, I'm sure it would be much improved compared to the weak 2.3 my '86 LX had. But I'd still rather have a V8...

    I drove my RWD CTS around Pittsburgh through 4 seasons of snow (along with my RWD Caprice and RWD Continental). As long as I had snow tires, I was fine.

    Yes, I did the same w/ a 4cyl Mustang from '88-94 in E/NE Ohio...hilly and often very snowy. Got around fine... AWD is a crutch for people raised in a FWD world and too cheap to buy proper snow tires instead of weak all-season tires. Though it makes sense in certain specialized models like Audis, WRXes, Porsche C4s, etc.

    Though when living in areas w/ snowy winters I'd rather have a proper 4x4 SUV for the ground clearance...ground clearance helps w/ going through snow, climbing over curbs, etc.

    another one of those deals where manly men put snows on their RWD car or drive backwards 40 miles each way in a snowstorm with summer tires on their Camaro, but -the market- repeatedly demonstrates why so many offerings before gravitate to AWD eventually. It either sells more cars or keeps the cars from being unsold.

    the appeal and sales potential of these kinds of cars go from being toy car / car#2 ( Moltar just not a lot of folks out there who have that Jeep for the winter and the toy car for the summer) to being a potential 'the car' for a lot greater base of people. And it could keep cars like the Camaro and Mustang much more viable in the marketplace for a longer range of time to a more diverse demographic.

    911's, GT-R's, WRX, Eclipse, all those cars really make use of the AWD from the performance aspect as well.

    Mustang turbo4 AWD would be a great offering to reach out to the market in Europe and sort of gain acceptance with a new crowd in the US.

    So there is no reason for anyone to buy a Mustang in that area then, really, unless they have the jing to buy a second car.

    AWD/ etc isn't an issue in So Cal, AZ, FL, TX, etc...I see a lot of Mustangs and Camaros around here. It would be very interesting to see what percentage of sales of RWD sporty cars like the Mustang, Camaro, and Challenger are in the sunshine states vs more cold-weather states.

    People in Colorado that I knew that had them had them as 2nd/3rd cars, though I know one guy from South Dakota that lives in Denver who has always had only Mustang GTs that he drives year round, kind of unusual...

    A turbo 4 makes sense, even if it makes 250-260 hp that is about all you got out of a V8 Mustang from the early 2000s, and up until a few years ago the V6 Mustang had 210 hp. Assuming the V6 gets upgraded or they do an Ecoboost V6 Mustang with 360 hp, the turbo 4 and V6 would provide enough power for 90% of buyers.

    Plus V8s makes so much power now you need to beef up the transmission, suspension, chassis, etc and that costs money. The Mustang is supposed to be affordable, not priced like a 3-series or more. If entry level luxury cars have 4-cylinders (even the 5-series does and CTS may soon too), it makes sense that the Camaro and Mustang do also.

    mustang and genesis coupe are now in some circles direct competition. a four pot turbo stang would then be able to match up in that way to the Genesis.

    The Genesis Coupe 4-cylinder is like 3400 lbs too. The Toyota/Scion/Subaru GT86/BRZ is super light and you know a turbo will get added to that. Mustang and Camaro are going to head that way. Plus if a $40k ATS has a 2.0T, how do you put a 320 hp V6 in a $25k Camaro? Although the same people that say the ATS's base 2.5 liter four is fine would probably riot if the Camaro had a 2.5 liter 4 as the base engine. Personally, I don't think that engine should be in any of GM's rear drive cars, but if they did it to the ATS, I won't be surprised if they do it to the Camaro.

    All those Microsoft Millionares get the camero or mustang for their summer rides :P Rest of the time, you see a large amount of AWD for the added traction in constant rain/snow on hills.

    Even with proper tires which I had for RWD in the 70's and 80's, AWD trumps RWD for ultimate traction and when you do know how to drive, then you can push an AWD to a limit that far exceeds what RWD is capable of handling. I have tons of respect for RWD, but after owning 4x4's and AWD. There is just way to much benefit to not have AWD now.

    If I was in the south, I would have no problem with FWD/RWD auto's. There is a place and purpose for where AWD auto's should be. The flat of the mid west once can get around with RWD or FWD and the proper snow tire, but on hills with heavy wet snow, you will loose out every time.

    I think if they can shed the weight, then all auto's should go with AWD as I think the driving dynamics are superior to the RWD or FWD auto's.

      When Ford introduced the next-generation Fiesta earlier this week, there was one model missing; the hot ST. This caused a number of people to wonder if there would be a new Fiesta ST. Good news, there will be Fiesta ST coming. But it will be awhile before we see it.
      Dutch publication AutoRAI spoke with Tyrone Johnson, development boss of Ford ST and RS models. Johnson revealed that the Fiesta ST would debut in late 2017, with production beginning a year later. Details about the next Fiesta ST are scarce, but Johnson did hint that the next ST would not see a major increase in power. Instead, the focus will be on improving the fun-factor. We wouldn't be surprised if a six-speed manual remains the only transmission choice, along with the ability to get the ST in three or five-door versions.

      Europe's 400 Ultra-Fast Charging Network by 2020

      Europe like America has the 3 basic charging standards in play in their fragile network of 2016. These is what we know as the 110, 220 and 440, level 1, 2 and 3 chargers. Yet Europe is not standing by waiting for Tesla or American Auto companies to drive EV auto's. Instead Europe has built the following consortium of Auto companies who have all chosen to contribute an equal amount to building the next generation charger network. VW, GM, BMW, Daimler, FORD, FCA, Hyundai, Volvo and Jaguar Land Rover have choosen to build 400 locations over the next 3 years that will sense and charge up to 350 kW in the period of a quick Coffee break. This is significantly faster and higher than the Tesla 120kW fast charging system. The goal by the European Government is to offer road trip worthy auto's with fast charging to bring less noise and cleaner air to European cities by 2020 and to make the bulk of inner city auto's EV's within 10 years of the fast charging system going live, so by 2030.

      Diamler is wanting to lead the European charge with their 300+ kilometer EV-CUV

      This would seem to show that Tesla has had the desired effect of making a market changing revolution of how companies and governments see the future of transportation.

      Ford had a special event in Cologne, Germany tonight where it introduced the next-generation Fiesta.
      It is clear that Ford didn't want to mess with the Fiesta's exterior design much. The basic shape is the same as the current one, but it appears some of the lines have been softened somewhat. It also looks like slightly larger, but Ford hasn't provided any dimensions to confirm this.
      Ford has unveiled four versions that will appear in Europe:
      Titanium: Stylish ST-Line: Sporty looks Vignale: Luxury Active: Crossover-esq  
      Interior-wise, the Fiesta follows suit with the recently-announced EcoSport with new styling, improved materials, and an 8-inch touchscreen that floats above the center stack. Ford brags this new screen helped removed 20 buttons from the center stack (although we're a bit wary about that considering our experience with interfaces that rely heavily on touchscreens).
      Not much is known about engines for the next Fiesta, but we wouldn't be surprised if it's comprised of three and four-cylinders running on gas and diesel for Europe. 
      We'll likely learn more details about the North American-spec of the Fiesta in the coming months. Expect a launch sometime late next year, possibly around the same time as the EcoSport.

      Smart Mobility for improved quality of life
      A new Ford-commissioned European survey* has revealed that that drivers believe enjoying passing scenery, catching up with family and friends, and reading a book are among the main perceived benefits of travelling by self‑driving car.
      Ford also announced the company will expand testing of autonomous cars to European roads next year, in addition to extensive testing in the U.S.
      Ford is currently expanding into both an auto and a mobility company by pursuing emerging opportunities through Ford Smart Mobility – its plan to be a leader in connectivity, mobility, autonomous vehicles, the customer experience data and analytics. The company is committed to making self-driving cars available for millions of people and earlier this year announced plans to triple its autonomous vehicle development fleet making it the largest of all automakers.
      New Transit Custom Black Edition and expanded Sport series
      The dynamic new Transit Custom Black Edition van offers four eye-catching colour schemes with contrasting roof, mirror caps, skid plate and side stripes, and unique black 17‑inch alloy wheels.
      The Transit Custom Sport series van with signature twin bonnet stripes can also now be ordered in a much wider choice of bodystyles, including van, kombi and double-cab-in-van models in both short and long wheelbase versions. The Tourneo Custom people mover can be specified with the same Sport package.
      These striking new Transit Custom and Tourneo Custom models are powered by the game-changing 170PS Ford EcoBlue diesel engine, and Tourneo Custom is also now offered with new features and technologies including a six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission, a unique-to-segment rear air suspension system, and attractive new 17-inch alloy wheels.
      Ford also revealed the new Ford Edge ST-Line SUV – which joins the Ford Fiesta ST-Line, Focus ST-Line, Mondeo ST-Line and Kuga ST-Line models – delivering Ford Performance-inspired styling, high specification and powerful engines.
      Award-winning 1.0-litre EcoBoost inspires industry-first innovation
      Ford powertrain engineers have defied industry expectations to deliver cylinder deactivation technology that will improve fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions for the multi-award-winning 1.0‑litre EcoBoost engine, without sacrificing refinement.
      Ford’s compact and powerful 1.0-litre EcoBoost will be the first three-cylinder engine in the world to feature cylinder deactivation. The technology can disengage or re-engage the cylinder in 14 milliseconds – 20 times faster than the blink of an eye – and combined with advanced solutions to counteract vibrations, will be imperceptible to drivers in terms of operation and engine performance.
      Ford GT racers join exclusive LEGO range
      Ford and The LEGO Group have joined forces to offer the 2016 Ford GT and 1966 Ford GT40 race cars as part of the exclusive LEGO Speed Champions range of models, featuring iconic high performance road and racing cars.
      The two new buildable models follow in the tyre tracks of the popular Ford Mustang and Ford F‑150 Raptor pickup sets already on sale, and celebrate Ford’s motor racing achievements in the world-famous Le Mans 24 Hours endurance race.
      Ford made an historic return to Le Mans this year, taking victory with the new Ford GT race car exactly 50 years after recording a 1-2-3 clean sweep at the 1966 race.
      Ford Chip Ganassi Racing drivers Dirk Müller and the full WEC team – Andy Priaulx, Harry Tincknell, Olivier Pla and Stefan Mücke – represented Ford’s victorious 2016 Le Mans team at Go Further, where both the 1966 and 2016 race cars were on stage.
      Further special guests joining Ford executives and European team members to celebrate the company’s contribution to sport included Sennan Fielding, a 20-year-old star of the Ford British F4 championship that features single-seat race cars powered by Ford’s 1.6-litre EcoBoost petrol engine.
