Default 2015 engine numbers released...

...for the 2015 Mustang. It will be interesting to see how they will relate to the new F-150.

From Ford Motor Company via Facebook.

The newest member of Ford’s global EcoBoost engine family, the 2.3-liter continues to take advantage of state-of-the-art technologies including direct fuel injection, twin independent variable camshaft timing and turbocharging to produce big-engine power and torque with improved fuel efficiency.

The geometry of the EcoBoost intake manifold and turbocharger housing has been optimized to provide better breathing and higher output in Mustang. Producing 310 horsepower and 320 lb.-ft. of torque, the 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine fits the bill for a true Mustang powerplant – with the highest power density yet from a Ford engine.

No Ford Mustang engine lineup would be complete without a great V8 engine at its core. The 5.0-liter V8 powers into a new generation with a host of upgrades that help it breathe better, especially at higher engine speeds. Many of these changes are derived from lessons learned in developing the special-edition 2012 Mustang Boss 302.

Getting air into the cylinders and exhaust out is key to generating more power and torque from any engine. That has been the focus in the development of this V8, which features:

Larger intake valves
Larger exhaust valves
Revised intake camshafts
Revised exhaust camshafts
Stiffer valve springs ensure valves close completely at high rpm
New cylinder head casting – revised ports provide straighter path to the valves for less restrictive intake and exhaust flow; combustion chamber modifications accommodate larger valves
Sinter forged connecting rods are lighter and more durable for high-rpm operation
Redesigned piston tops – deeper cutouts clear the new larger valves
Rebalanced forged crankshaft to support higher-rpm operation.

These upgrades have boosted output of the V8 to 435 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. of torque.

With any luck, the 5.0 will almost match the 5.7 Hemi. A 380/390 number would make it very appealing.

Its really annoying when folks on here put topic titles that have nothing to do with the subject matter for discussion.

This is a truck forum, F150 to be exact...not mustang!
