Granted, the base 3.7-liter V6 available in North America will not be available over the Atlantic, but really, who needs it? The 2.3-liter EcoBoost turbo-four is the base engine for the Mustang in Europe, and it’s equally as potent as it is in the States at 310 horsepower — a mere 10 horses more than the V6 pumps out. Far more regrettable for European buyers is that the 5.0-liter “Coyote” V8 in the range-topping Mustang GT lose 23 horsepower somewhere along the journey to Europe’s shores, bringing output down to 412.
The Mustang was first presented to the world in late in 2013, and it’s fair to say that for European customers, anticipation has been building ever since. Unfortunately, European buyers will have to wait a bit longer after placing their orders, as deliveries aren’t scheduled to begin until the second quarter. Pricing will start at the equivalent of $40,000 USD, or almost $15,000 more than what it sells for stateside. Even so, something tells us the Ford Mustang will do all right in the foreign marketplace regardless.
