Is this the sound of the EcoBoost 4?

I found this video on Jalopnik of a 2015 Mustang which was spied testing today. A lot of the commenters seem to think it sounds like a V6, but I listen to my cyclone engine everyday, and this sounds a little too high pitched to be 3.7 liters. Sounds like a 4-banger to me. What do you guys think?

Why yes, yes it is. Surely you've heard of the 2015 Mustang Redneck Edition?

Sounds a lot like the vq engines from Nissan, so I'm going to lean towards a 6.

V6 for sure. The Eco-Boost will likely be significantly muffled due to the addition of a turbo. I'm hoping they go with a little more free-flowing exhaust so we can hear some of that turbo spool...but who knows.

After reading about the 2015 weight gain I'm a whole lot less excited about the Eco-boost.

Good lord....I guess this is a new option from the factory...a tow package to haul your pop up camper while taking the turbo 4 4 wheeling.
