When Ford launched their 2019 edition of Mustang EcoBoost, the rear-wheel-drive sedan with front-engine, caught the immediate attention of the onlookers. With an upscale interior, the 2-door coupe 2019 Ford Mustang EcoBoost accommodates 4-passengers with all their belongings without any squeeze.
But what makes the 2019 Mustang EcoBoost get counted among the favorites of a large number of buyers is its performance that goes at per with its splendid fuel economy. For those who care about the environment and do not want to add to the pollution level, the 2019 Ford Mustang EcoBoost is a boon to them.
The Engine and Powertrain
In the Ford dealer Alexandria, we got to see the current year Mustang EcoBoost that is powered by a turbocharged and intercooled 16-valve DOHC 2.3-liter inline-four engine with aluminum block and head, running on direct fuel injection can crack a 310 horsepower@ 5500 rpm and 350 lb.-ft of torque@ 3000 rpm, when paired with a 6-speed manual transmission.
What makes the new 2019 Ford Mustang EcoBoost take over its rivals is the achievement in its EPA ratings that counts 25 mpg in a Combined trip, 21 mpg in the city drives and carries on to 31 mpg when it catches the highway. That is indeed a big triumph in the segment to which it belongs. With EcoBoost that is available at an affordable sticker price stays easy on pocket as it saves much on fuel when you drive. With a manual transmission, the owners need not have to worry about expensive repair works, unless they drive with a reckless attitude.
Infotainment and Other Tech Features
To know how much you are really saving on fuel, you can very well depend on the infotainment system of the 2019 Ford Mustang EcoBoost that keeps you updated with every detail of driving data through its refreshing and simple interface, displayed on an 8.0-inch touchscreen. The selectable driving modes are placed on the dashboard with toggle switches. The Sync 3 integrated with Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, two USB ports, includes a dual-zone automatic climate control, a nine-speaker audio system, rear parking sensors all caged inside an aesthetically designed aluminum interior trim.
Driving and On-Road Performance
When we drove the 2019 Ford Mustang EcoBoost in the Ford dealership Alexandria, we observed the transmission being intuitive enough to give the right sensation of power and handling in equal ratio. The clutch this time with its new diaphragm spring can be felt through its improved response and smooth pedal engagement. The dual-mass flywheel too has a new inner damper now to reduce the transmission noise and vibration to a significant level. Our drive certainly felt much sounder than before as the handling got much more refined than its earlier 2.3-liter engine.
The foolproof clutch action with an abundant torque tames the soul-sucking stop-and-go traffic by allowing the driver to leave the car in its existing gear and come back to the actions of engaging and disengaging the clutch pedal when the traffic starts moving without the need to press the accelerator.
