The 2020 Ford Mustang: Small Engine, Big Horsepower

On the 55th anniversary of its powerful sports car, Ford unveiled the 2020 Ford Mustang, which churns out 330 horsepower with a 4-cylinder engine.

Jonathan Klinger, spokesman for the Traverse City-based Hagerty Classic Insurance, said of the new Mustang:

“It’s an evolution of their entry-level offering. That’s what this four-cylinder represents. Someone who wants a combination performance and respectable fuel economy for daily driving…This is a Mustang for someone who can race it with a helmet on the weekend and drive it to work in a suit on Monday. That’s the beauty of today’s muscle car.”

Muscle cars traditionally involved the fastest engine with the smallest car. Fast engines used to mean big engines; but with growing technology, a car no longer requires a V6 or V8 to crank out heavy horsepower. The 2020 Mustang carries a 2.3-liter turbo engine that launches from zero to 60 mph in 4.5 seconds and reaches a top speed of 155 mph.

Ford used brakes, aerodynamics, and suspension components from the Mustang GT to build the new Mustang. With its new engine and updated technology, it’s sure to catch a few eyes.

The 2020 Mustang will go on sale in the fall with an expected price tag between $35,000 and $40,000.
