Ford Considers Diesel, Electric, and Hybrid Options for Future Mustang

Ford has worked hard on the 2015 Mustang making it a car that will be appealing to drivers all around the world. The 2015 Mustang is all-new with a new body and a new independent rear suspension. Another of the major changes on the 2015 Mustang was the addition of a new 2.3L EcoBoost 4 cylinder engine option.

That EcoBoost option marks the first time since the Mustang SVO went out of production that the Mustang has had a turbo 4-cylinder engine option. Many of the Mustangs in the past used naturally aspirated 4-cylinder engines. In the US, gas prices are high enough to make many complain when filling up, but in Europe fuel costs are much higher.

Ford is currently considering other options to make the Mustang greener in the future. Go Auto reports that some of the things under consideration include diesel power, hybrid, and even electric versions of the Mustang. Of the three options, I think the most likely would be a hybrid version. Lots of performance cars use hybrid tech today.

I have a hard time believing an electric or diesel power Mustang could be viable. Ford is also working on next generation transmissions with GM with options for nine and ten speed automatics in the works. Those transmissions might make it to the Mustang of the future to help it get better fuel efficiency.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
