Comparing The Power Figures Of The 2015 Mustang To The 2014 Mustang

Having been completely redesigned and improved in pretty much every imaginable way, the 2015 Mustang is one awesome pony, especially with its independent rear suspension, advanced technology, and tasteful design. But how does the all-new, sixth-generation Stang compare to the outgoing model in power? That’s what we’re here to find out.

2015 FORD MUSTANG VS. 2014 FORD MUSTANG POWER RATINGS
MODEL 2015 MUSTANG 2014 MUSTANG +/- 2015 MUSTANG
3.7L V6 POWER (HP): 300 305 -5
3.7L V6 TORQUE (LB-FT): 280 280 0
2.3 TURBO ECOBOOST POWER (HP): 310 N/A N/A
2.3 TURBO ECOBOOST TORQUE (LB-FT): 320 N/A N/A
5.0L V8 POWER (HP): 435 420 15
5.0L V8 TORQUE (LB-FT): 400 390 10

3.7-Liter Naturally-Aspirated V6

For reasons that still confound us, the base 3.7-liter V6 in the 2015 Mustang loses five horsepower (300) over the 2014 model (305), with torque remaining at the same at 280 pound-feet. But when going from one generation to another, no product should go back (or lose) anything.

2.3-Liter Turbo I4 EcoBoost

Moving up to the new Mustang EcoBoost and its new 2.3-liter turbo-charged inline four-banger will net you 310 horses and 320 pound-feet of torque. Nice power numbers for a light engine, wouldn’t you say?

5.0-Liter V8 Coyote

But the real news is the fact that the 2015 Mustang GT makes 15 more ponies (435) and 10 more pound-feet of torque (400) over the 2014 model thanks to the revised Coyote V8. Those are the kinds of gains we would have liked to see from the base 3.7L V6 as well, but alas, that’s not in the cards.

Now, all that’s left is for Ford to confirm power figures for the 2016 Mustang Shelby GT350, and perhaps add a Mustang ST to the lineup, and we’ll have one big, happy Mustang lineup.
