Are you disappointed the EcoBoost Mustang won't be a special package or trimline?

Many thought that the EcoBoost Mustang might get a special package or trimline. That doesn't seem to be the case though. Owners will likely call their 2015 Mustang with EcoBoost engine an EcoBoost Mustang, or a Mustang EcoBoost, but officially it will just be a 2015 Mustang.

The original rumor was that the EcoBoost Mustang could use the SVO name, which was used for the classic turbo-4 trimline.

I think it would have been nice to have something special about the Ecoboost Mustang. A name, a badge, some little detail that sets it apart from the rest. Is anyone else disappointed at all?

I think the general consensus is that people will call it an EcoBoost Mustang even if that isn't the official name. What would really be different in the end anyway? Some little green leaf badge stuck on the side or the back of the car? Its really not that big of a deal. I can see why Ford wouldn't want to go through the trouble.

besides I'm sure that there are plenty of other special Mustang models that are going to be coming out over the next X amount of years.

Not many people are aware of the 2015 mustang so i think it will be a small portion that will call it the ecoboost. the masses wont make that mistake.

If Ford wants to address a large European audience it should be a 'clean' basic look version. Tuning, stripes and spoiler addicts can always do some extra fine tuning...guess there will be sufficient suppliers of these anyway..

You won't see a lot of Audi A5, BMW 3 or 4 series with factory kits except from S/RS an M versions.

I go for the Inglot 2.3 as soon as available...via import as it seems Europe will have an additional 6 month delay to have them available via the regular Ford sales channels.

I don't even understand why that would happen. Are there any examples of performance or muscle cars with all wheel drive?

The Ferrari FF has all-wheel drive, but is that really a sports car???
