Well I'm here at the Ford booth at the New York auto show learning a little bit about the high performance package for the Mustang.
The easiest and quickest way to get your kicks in the 2.3 litre EcoBoost engine.
Well wait, doesn't the mustang already have 2.3 litre EcoBoost?
Yes it does but this one is lifted out of the focus RS, it's putting out 330 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque.
Now for those of you keeping score about 20 horsepower more than the base Ecoboost but it is the same amount of torque but remember.
Performance is more than just a spec sheet.
This high performance package promise more torque in the low RPMs, with it's own throttle, transmission, and stability control mapping.
Plus, you've got specific shocks, springs and anti-roll bars.
Pearly summer tires and bigger brakes are lifted right off the Mustang GT and all told you can go from 0 to 60 in 4.5 seconds on your way to a top speed of 155 miles per hour.
And if you want even more performance goodies, you can opt for the handling packing that's going to give you a bigger anti-roll bar in the rear, a torsion limited slip differential, and adaptive dampers.
Visual cues to the high performance package includes a front splitter, a blacked out grill, a rear lip spoiler and that cool faux gas cap that we've seen on the Mustang Bullet.
This high performance package will be available on both the coupe and convertible body styles, and we should see it this fall.
We've got no word on pricing, but the base Mustang starts at about 26,000 bucks.
So I'd expect this guy back here.
Right around $30,000.
