Under the Hood
The heart of the 2020 EcoBoost HPP is a 2.3-liter EcoBoost turbocharged engine, which is not simply a more powerful version of the standard 2.3-liter, but a revised version of the Ford Performance tuned 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine used in the Focus RS and produced in Valencia, Spain. Fitting the new engine into the Mustang required modifications to change its transverse (sideways) orientation in the Focus RS to a longitudinal placement for the rear-wheel-drive Mustang. Engineers also developed a larger twin-scroll turbocharger so the engine power band would better match both the standard 6-speed Getrag manual transmission and Ford’s 10-speed SelectShift automatic transmission.
