We always get pictures of the GT versions.
When will we see pictures of the EcoBoost?

There will be diferences? Emblems, exhaust, wheels,...:eek:

as you wish @Feverkie....




However I do assume that this S550 is a V6 model, the Tribar pony logo has been common on V6's here for years, In fact your V6 might have one as well. I'm not sure if the S550 Ecoboost will wear the eco badge common to the other boosted fords...



I'm kind of hoping they do something like the Taurus SHO badge, but just TURBO...

BTW, here is the Race Red Ecoboost S550 from the reveal on good morning america... You can see it still wears no ecoboost badge, but the difference between this Race Red and the Comp Orange above, is that the above has the tribar pony which is a V6 staple... I think Ecoboost is basically going to dress like a GT without the 5.0 badges...




Plus the 5.0 Has two extra hood nostrils absent from the ecoboost...

I want the hoodscoops, so the aftermarket have a buyer. And i must have the double exhaust, i hope that stays on the european Stang. The looks are good, now the price and the sound. >:D

No worries there Fev, the dual tips will be standard on all trim levels. There is only one confirmed video of the EcoBoost, listen close for the turbo spool as he accelerates..


I do wonder if the performance pack ecoboost will use the GT's hood nostrils, from the Q and A with Pericak:

Q: We want to talk top speed - generally, European cars with the level of HP you offer on the three versions of the Mustang, have higher top speeds than what you offer, at least on the current Mustang. Are you going to change these?

The top speeds have been increased at every level. The V8 does 155 mph (250 km/h), the V6 doing 121 mph (195 km/h), and then the Ecoboost base doing 121 mph, but the Ecoboost Track Pack doing 145 mph (233.5 km/h).

Q: Still, what is the source of these limitations - Speaking roughly, these HP to weight ratios, with the aerodynamics factored in the equation, should deliver superior top speeds.

Well, you get into a situation where cooling becomes a huge concern. We have very stringent requirement we have to meet. So engine cooling is the main factor here.
because of the importance they're placing on cooling, especially with the performance packs which are already confirmed to be using bigger rads, so it would seem logical that they would make use of a better breathing hood as well...

price, now isnt that the question ;)
