New Ford Mustang Gets Performance Upgrades

The Ford Mustang is the premier pony car for many Americans, and while it’s already a power-packed muscle car, the automaker isn’t quite done. The Ford Performance division is making waves in the muscle car segment by upping the ante with more powerful Mustang EcoBoost and GT models. The new Ford Mustang will see more power than ever before this model year.

The 2.3-liter EcoBoost turbocharged four-cylinder engine will see the addition of a calibration kit. That new kit adds an additional 25 hp and 70 lb-ft of torque. That brings the four-cylinder engine’s total output to a massive 335 hp and 390 lb-ft of torque.

The new Mustang GT is getting a bonus as well. The 5.0-liter V8 engine gains three upgrade packages. All packages add a no-lift shift feature for cars with a manual transmission.

The “weakest” calibration adds 13 hp and 16 lb-ft of torque. The second adds 21 hp and 24 lb-ft of torque. The final package increases the redline rpm to 7,500 and adds 37 hp and 5 lb-ft of torque.

Best of all, every packages increase the power output of the popular muscle car while still maintaining the factory warranty and emissions standards in all states.

We here at Nick Nicholas Ford are pumped for the arrival of the new, even more powerful Ford Mustang!
