I agree - the 4 banger Mustang sold well back in the early 80's even though you could have made the car go faster by pushing it. GM's 2.0T is a great powerplant and I fully expect the 6th gen 4 banger to be superior in performance and gas mileage than the current 5th gen LT.
.....and of course the 6th gen will have an 8 available.
