Birth of the Pony Car
Ford practically invented a vehicle genre with the release of the first Mustang in April 1964. The term “pony car”, a complimentary reference to the Mustang, can be defined as an affordable, compact and sporty vehicle design with a performance oriented theme. Ford’s Mustang established a new standard by which all the domestic brands competed.
Enter the 6th Gen Mustang
The Ford faithful have always had a Mustang to admire on showroom floors, some better than others and, certainly some more desirable than others. With the release of the sixth-generation Mustang in 2015, Ford raised the bar once again. Not only has it taken steps to ensure that this model stands out in the pony car segment, it is the first ever Mustang to be sold in both domestic and foreign markets as a true global platform with right-hand drive models in the appropriate markets.
Adding Boost to the Lineup
In 2015, the standard Mustang engine was the naturally-aspirated Cyclone V6. In 2018, this engine was dropped from the line and replaced by the previously optional turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine that is shared with the Focus RS. Forced induction fans haven’t seen a factory turbocharged Mustang since the 1980s, but this engine was worth the wait. This EcoBoost engine comes from the factory with 310 horsepower with some head room for growth. The aftermarket eagerly embraced the EcoBoost engine and its potential has yet to be fully explored. Basic bolt-ons have already yielded impressive results, leaving much to the imagination for fully built engines.
