Ford Racing Testing out the 2015 Ford Mustang

Ford Racing Puts 2015 Mustang to the Test

With the 2015 Ford Mustang finally on sale at Pegues Hurst Ford and other dealerships, no doubt early owners and enthusiasts have already tested its impressive acceleration. But how fast can it go, exactly? Ford Racing decided to find out.

The goal was simple enough: get each version of the Mustang from zero to a quarter mile under a certain time. The target was 10.99 or under for the supercharged 5.0-liter V8 Mustang GT, 11.99 or under for its naturally-aspirated counterpart, and 12.99 or under for the 2.3-liter EcoBoost Mustang.

Modifications were needed, of course, but all three made it—some more narrowly than others. The supercharged V8 covered the quarter mile in only 10.97 seconds, while the naturally-aspirated V8 did it in 11.77 and the EcoBoost in 12.56. That last time is particularly impressive for an engine with only four cylinders and 2.3 liters of displacement!
