A new 2.3L High Performance Package will soon be available for 2020 Ford Mustang EcoBoost models. New Mustangs enhanced by the performance package are expected to deliver a projected 330 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque, making them the most powerful four-cylinder sports cars offered by an American automaker.
“The Ford Performance Focus RS 2.3-liter engine is a high-revving marvel, and anyone who’s driven this EcoBoost engine instantly loves how quickly it responds and delivers power,” said Carl Widmann, Mustang chief engineer. “When our team got the chance to try this specially built engine in a Mustang, we immediately agreed, ‘We have to do this.’”
This new performance upgrade will include race tuned suspension, aerodynamics and brakes borrowed from the popular Mustang GT Performance line. The 2020 Mustang 2.3L High Performance Package is designed to run 0-60 in the mid-four-second range on premium fuel, with top speed increasing to 155 mph, a 10 mph gain over the 2019 EcoBoost Performance Package and 34 mph faster than the base EcoBoost Mustang.
For greater steering precision, Ford designers added an alloy strut tower brace to stiffen the chassis at the front. To improve stopping power and fade resistance, the 2.3L High Performance Package adds larger four-piston fixed calipers with 13.9-inch front rotors from Mustang GT. It features a 32-millimeter sway bar up front and a tubular 21.7-millimeter bar at the rear. The result is an aggressive road-holding stance, near-balanced 53/47 weight distribution and fully independent suspension, plus chassis and aerodynamic upgrades from the Mustang GT and its Performance Package.
2020 Ford Mustangs with the EcoBoost 2.3L High Performance Package will also have an aggressive new look. Exterior features include a large black front splitter, a blacked-out grille with offset Mustang tri-bar pony emblem, 2.3L High Performance Package side badges and magnetic gray side mirrors as well as a raised blade rear spoiler and a unique metallic gray stripe across the hood to add to the performance look. Specialized interior features will include an engine-spun aluminum instrument panel with oil pressure and turbo boost gauges, plus a serialized dash plaque.
Four new Mustang colors for 2020 include Grabber Lime, Iconic Silver, Red Hot Metallic Tinted Clearcoat and Twister Orange. New 17-inch sparkle silver-painted aluminum wheels now come standard on the base 2020 Mustang EcoBoost.
