Arrow Turbo 4 cyl Mustang spied on video!

Saw these posted up on Mustang6g.

First video confirming there's a ecoboost turbo 4 cylinder Mustang coming.
The whine is definitely noticeable.

These were seen in Flagstaff Arizona, in case anyone here is near there and has a camera

OP: http://www.mustang6g.com

I wonder if the next gen Camaro will have a turbo 4 to compete directly too.

hmmmm... i have the 2.0 4 cylinder EcoBoost in my Focus ST... also have the 3.5 EcoBoost in the Flex... and when they were both stock you basically heard zero turbo noises! It's like Ford doesn't want any of the EcoBoosts to give off any tell tale sounds... Now it may be completely difference when it comes to an EB in the Mustang

Hopefully not!

I still don't get the point of a turbo'd 4 cyl Mustang. I'm sure it will be a fantastic fun car but a 4 cyl Mustang is a big . Put it in another body and call it something else...

i hope chevy doesnt go that route. for one the camaro is way to heavy for a turbo 4cyl, unless the 6th gen camaro comes in at around 3,300 pounds than thats a different story but we all know thats not going to happen im hoping the 6th gen comes in at 3,600lbs like the current mustang. i heard rumors of the corvette getting a twin turbo v6 im glad that didnt happen.

I won't own a 4 banger until there's nothing else available.

I don't care how much HP they make. The throaty growl of the V8, can't beat it.

That's kind a misleading.

The Cafe requirement is across the manufacturer line up, it doesn't apply to a specific model.

....actually the base car being in the 3,300 lb range is completely possible. 3,400lb range for sure. The rear wheel drive ATS 2.0 turbo with the automatic transmission is under 3,400 lbs. Why couldn't the Camaro be since it will likely be on the same chassis?

As for the V8...I'd guess it will be between 3,550 to 3,650 lbs.

This is 100% true but depending on the other models offered, something may have to give in the future. I just hope that a V8 will always be offered for the Vette and Camaro. Otherwise kill off the nameplates.

That is why I picked a V8 with an iron block. I know aluminum is supposedly better in every way, but I'm not taking this car to the track it is a daily driver. Manual transmission so if that goes it can probably be fixed. I will do within reason what ever it takes to keep mine going because I just don't want to drive another 4 banger again. No offense to those who do you will certainly have plenty of choices, but they are not for me.

we will see considering you have cars like the 370z that were projected to be 3,300lbs and wound up being 3,600lbs. i would like to see the camaro built on a smaller chassis but ill bet money they wont build it on the ats frame. and with certain styling aspects and body lines cars are almost never at "projected" weights. if the 6th gen comes in at 3,400lbs i will 100% trade up for it but most likely it will be in the 3,600 pound range like the current mustang.
