When Ford introduced the new Mustang in September of this year, it said that it would have the same 2.3-liter four-cylinder and 5-liter eight-cylinder engines under the hood.
Aside from mentioning that the V8 would have more power, it was about it. Whoever predicted that the engines would not undergo changes would be mistaken. Now we finally know more about what the changes will be – Ford has revealed the specifications for both engines.
Let’s start at the start of the US offering, which will be a 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine called EcoBoost. Compared to the previous one, it has undergone cardinal changes, for example, the pothole ratio and stroke have also changed. On top of that, there’s indirect and direct fuel injection, variable valve timing and a twin-scroll turbocharger.
The result is an increase in power by 5 hp to 319, and torque to 474 Nm, as well as a decrease in combined fuel consumption from 9.4 to exactly 9 l / 100 km. However, this is only an estimate at the moment. According to Ford, this engine is the most powerful of all four- or six-cylinder engines ever used in a Mustang.

But the fourth-generation Coyote five-liter V8 engine will also be available. The V8 received dual throttle, dual intake front end, improved oil sump and changes to the engine body.
The result is an increase in power by 30PS and 7Nm to 487PS and 562Nm, which can be further improved with the addition of an active exhaust system to 493PS and 566Nm.
The sharper version of the Dark Horse, introduced in September alongside the GT’s base four-cylinder, eight-cylinder engine, will deliver 507hp and 566Nm. This is thanks to forged connecting rods and a different balance of the crankshaft – still cross, we’re still talking about a five-liter wolf – for higher pressures in the cylinders and piston travel speeds.
There are also reinforced camshafts with the aim of the engine being able to run for a long time near the maximum revolutions per minute of 7500 per minute, for example on the racetrack. The result is the most powerful Mustang in history without the Shelby badge.
Of course, these are all American numbers – it is not yet known what power and torque the engine will deliver under European emissions standards.
As the automaker has already revealed, the eight-cylinder engine will be connected to a six-speed manual transmission with automatic intermediate gases in the GT version. The Dark Horse variant had a modified six-cylinder with an additional oil cooler. A ten-speed automatic transmission will be available for both, which will be the only option for the four-cylinder.
In the United States, the new Mustang is scheduled to go on sale in the summer of next year as the 2024 model year. When we can expect it to be in Europe is still a question, but we dare to guess at the end of next year.
