Review: 2020 Ford Mustang Ecoboost High-Performance Package — Are Four Cylinders Better Than Eight?

The 2020 Ford Mustang Ecoboost High-Performance Package with Ecoboost Handling Package (say that five times fast) surprised us, and really drove home the saying “don’t knock it till you try it.” Here’s how it did so.

Review: 2020 Ford Mustang BULLITT — A Solid Upgrade To The GT, And Still Relevant

We had a ton of fun with the 2020 Bullitt. It handled and rode well enough, its engine was genuinely entertaining, inputs were great, and we found it to be a good, flexible performance car that one could live with day-to-day quite easily. Even if a lot of Bullitts will probably get squirreled away for a Barrett-Jackson event in 30 years.

The Top Five Modifications For The Ford Mustang

Let’s take a look at the five best mods to enhance one of America’s favorite performance vehicles, the Ford Mustang. We won’t go into detail about each generation of Ford’s iconic muscle/sports car since the mods can be customized to suit every generation. Rather than listing aesthetic-only mods like LED headlights, most wings out there, or even body kits, we’ll dive deeper into the performance side of things.

WR TV: 2016 Ford Shelby GT350R Mustang

This week we take you behind the wheel of the new Shelby GT350R Mustang with Ford factory driver Steve Thompson behind the wheel. A clear response to Chevrolet’s Camaro Z/28, the GT350R puts the track-focused GT350 on a 130 pound diet by way of deleting the rear seat, air conditioning, stereo and other non-essential items, along with the use of carbon fiber wheels which remove 13 pounds of unsprung weight from each corner. Bolstered aero bits include a large rear wing and rear diffuser and a unique hood vent which extracts heat and also reduces lift. The GT350R keeps the 5.2-liter V8 from the standard GT350, with an output said to be over 500 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque.

Beyond Spec Miata: Spec Mustang + Spec Iron

If you are racing (or thinking about racing) a Spec Miata, and you want to try something different, one obvious direction to go is to get a bigger, more powerful spec car. And to compound the obvious, nothing could be more clearly powerful yet affordable than a V-8 powered Mustang.

Los Angeles 2014: Ford Unveils Track-Focused Shelby GT-350 Mustang

The man himself may no longer be with us, but Caroll Shelby’s legacy of working with Ford to create some serious performance machines lives on with the latest entry into the portfolio, the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang Shelby GT-350. Unlike the previous generation’s Shelby Mustang, the GT-500, the GT-350’s primary objective isn’t massive horsepower numbers and straight line acceleration. Instead, the GT-350 is designed from the ground up to be a road course terror, and this little pony has the goods to carve through corners with the best of them.

Ken Block Assaults the Streets of LA in Gymkhana 7 with an 845 HP, AWD Mustang

Professional rally driver Ken Block and his Hoonigan racing team have returned with the latest tire-destroying showcase of car control theatrics known to man, Gymkhana. For those unfamiliar with the series, now in its seventh official installment (there’s been a few more that apparently didn’t warrant an entirely new episode number), Gymkhana videos feature high speed stunt driving through some treacherous, often urban environments, with feats of drifting prowess that really must be seen to be believed. This time Ken takes us to the streets in and around downtown Los Angeles, and the weapon of choice is a custom built, all-wheel-drive, 845 horsepower 1965 Ford Mustang coupe. It’s absolutely glorious.

Six Modern Performance Cars Tested Back to Back on Big Willow

Every year the Motor Press Guild holds their Track Days event, gathering both journalists and auto makers in one spot with the goal of giving both parties the opportunity to connect and allow members of the press a chance to evaluate the latest from the brands that participate. This year had a particularly good turnout, giving us a chance to check out vehicles we haven’t had any seat time in as of yet, as well as one’s we’ve reviewed previously but haven’t had on track yet, like the all-new 2015 Ford Mustang GT.

WR TV: 2015 Ford Mustang EcoBoost 2.3L Performance Package – POV Test Drive

While we had a great time putting the new GT through its paces, perhaps the biggest surprise of during our stint with the all-new Mustang lineup was the new EcoBoost model. Slotted between the base V6 and the 5.0-powered GT, the EcoBoost Mustang gets motivation from a turbocharged, DOHC 2.3-liter four cylinder motor which outputs an impressive 310 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque, recalling the short-lived Mustang SVO of the early 1980s which still carries a cult following today for its light weight and eminently tunable turbocharged powerplant. Our tester was also equipped with a six speed manual and the optional Performance Package, which includes a 3.55 limited slip differential and 255/40R19 summer tires.
