The beefed-up four-cylinder Mustang gets its own personality and unique touches.
The Ford Mustang 2.3L High-Performance Four-cylinder 2020 has landed on Australian shores and is now available. Launched without much fanfare as a substitute for the previously known model simply as the Mustang EcoBoost.
Ford’s tuned-up version of its 2.3-liter EcoBoost Mustang receives performance enhancements. The distinct look of its own.
The 2020 Mustang High Performance is available in fastback and convertible form. So, with fastback variants automatic options for six-speed manual transmission or 10-speed paddle-shift. The convertible model only comes with the 10-speed.
The high-performance Mustang outputs 236kW and 448Nm-up from the 224kW and 441Nm figures of a standard EcoBoost. This is due to the redesign of the 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine and the Focus RS fit of the larger 63 mm turbocharger.
While the rise in torque seems small, Ford says the torque curve has been made wider and flatter, which translates into improved driver efficiency.
Cosmetically, the product requires updates to the packaging to set it apart from the EcoBoost version.
