2015 3.7 Vs 2015 2.3 ecoboost

Just a fun and friendly topic! Which one would you choose to purchase if you had to pick one of the listed models and why? Also, buying a 5.0 is not an option for this little topic. 😎

My vote would be the 2.3 echoboost for my purchase because a tune alone nets huge power gains. Gains that not all the bolt on mods to my 3.7 would net me power such as the echoboost does.

While the huge increases in power are very tempting, I would stick to the 3.7 because theres so much information available on what to and what not to do. Whereas the ecoboost is largely uncharted territory still.

Secretly I go with the economist because of the power and all the mods that you could do with it because of the turbo but, Not saying I hate the I-4 just that it doesn't seem right that it's a four banger with a turbo in a mustang that said I'd go with the ecoboost

I don't know yet. I drove the ecoboost at a ford event and really liked it. They had an autocross type course set up and it seemed to have a good amount of low end power, and the 2015 suspension was bad ***. However it was an automatic so it was really hard to compare to my 2014 v6 which is a manual.

I can say that the ecoboost car is definitely really fun, especially if you like to turn.

Ecoboost for me. I've seen what the old svo stangs could do and fords not in it to fail. I like the 3.7 but not in a heavier car. Now if the 3.5 Eco was an option that would be a different story

Is anyone a little disappointed that they cut back 5hp on the v6 even though it isn't much and most likely did nothing because it was just 5hp from the crank

The V6 didn't change in power at all. They just changed the number they advertise to make the Ecoboost look better.

Yeah I know their would be any difference I just think it was interesting that they supposedly cut back power and the gt gained like ( don't quote me on this ) 10 or so haha

It's like the same thing with GM and the LS/LT engines. They always rate the corvette higher yet the Camaro has the same engine. They don't want to make the cheaper model have as much power as their flagship.

I don't think the 3.7 motor was modified at all excluding its air intake.

The 2015 5.0 on the other hand... Believe it got a few upgrades from the 12-13 Boss and AM/Bama said the 2015 intake manifold actually flows better than the Boss IM.

So that's where the 2015 5.0 may have actually gained more power.

I'd actually go with the 6. I know a lot of you have the opinion that boosted small engines are the future, and maybe they are, but I simply don't like 4 bangers. I got the 6 because I wanted a fun economical daily driver, if I wanted a hotrod I would've went used and picked up a used C5 Z06 Vette, mid 12s stock while still getting mid 20s hwy all for around 20k.

I put 30 miles on an EB premium, 6 spd with the performance package today...

Nice car, a lot nicer than my 14 V6 premium from the inside, however, no glass roof option is beyond retarded.

It wasn't as fast as my CAI/Tune 3.7, then again, the EB was stock and still had under 500 miles. Power seemed just like any other modern, small turbo engine. Nearly instant torque and no top end. The EB pulls much better than my 3.7 at low rpm. After 4000 rpm, I'm confident my 3.7 pulls harder. The transmission seemed smoother and more precise than the stocker in my 14.

I wish I could get the interior of the 15 in my car. I still despise the looks of the rear end, wasn't impressed by how it drove either. I took it down a country road and it popped, squeaked, swayed and didn't feel planted... exactly like every other Mustang I have driven. It wasn't much better than my 14. Also, the interior feels smaller, not sure if it actually is.

I have no interest in buying a 2015, I believe the new car is more of a side step rather than any sort of progress. That said, if I were in the market right now and had to choose between a left over 2014 3.7 or a new EB .. EB all the way.

Your review and many others has led me to believe that this 2015 model is the exact same as what happened in 2010 to the 4.6 and 4.0 engines.

The only exception is that the 3.7, EB and 5.0 are all good engines.

The 4.6 and 4.0 were horrible from a performance stand point.

2015 3.7 Vs 2015 2.3 echoboost

I almost was able to drive an EB a few weeks back. I sat in it, started it and everything, just didn't have time to drive it that day.

I do really like the interior. The physical size of the 15 is smaller than the 14 so I would expect the interior to be smaller also. I can't compare it to a 14 because the last time I actually sat in a 13 was when it first just came out.

Overall I did really like the car. Will have to drive it to really see how it is. Maybe a possible candidate for a DD after college so I can really build up the Bullitt.

As for the top end of the EB, my guess is the size of the turbo.

With a turbo, you go small and get near instant boost and no top end or you go big and have no low end but a lot of top end.

Even tuned, they are dropping power on the top end. It could be an exhaust restriction but I'm going with a small turbo. If they were to put a slightly larger turbo on it, then just a tuned EB would likely outrun a lightly modded 5.0.

The EB lacked all the turbo things that make turbos fun. Now I feel motivated to start building my Talon again..

Someone posted a link on this.

There IS a performance drop. For the engine to fit, they had to change something- and the best they could do is only lose 5 HP. Like rap said, unlikely to notice a difference, but it allegedly isn't the usual automaker shenanigans.

More likely to notice the extra weight than the HP loss- but heavier with the HP loss, I imagine isn't a good combination lol

Can't find the original Ford post for the life of me, but on Autoblog they say it's the intake manifold- 11-14 version wouldn't clear the hood.

By the numbers the ecoboost is the better all around choice. It has more low end grunt, can be made faster for less money, and gets better fuel economy as well...But I still feel like the V6 has more character, which is something that is actually rather important to me in a car like this. There is something fundamentally wrong when you have faked engine noises pumped in through the speakers.

Yea the turbo being too small was what i was hinting at.

I would do the 6 again. I do enjoy a boosted 4cyl but I'm just not 100% on board with it in a mustang yet. Given the fact I haven't driven one yet, my bias lies with tried and true platforms.

I think the fact they have to pump fake engine sounds through the audio system to make it sound better cheapens the experience.

The 15 interior is amazing actually. I've been to the dealer 2-3 times since they hit the showroom and I climb through them every time. I've got my eyes on a white PP 5.0 but I'm gonna wait till they hit incentives next year and see what kind of deals they throw at me.

I know the v6 doesn't have best exhaust note but i watched a video where cj pony parts installed an axleback on the EB and it was still extremely quiet. If it wasnt for the sound i'd vote ecoboost.

If I were to ever buy a 4 banger I would not mess with the exhaust. I heard that 4 banger with an off road x pipe and it was pathetic and embarrassing. Sounded like my leaf blower. Better to just leave it quiet. Just like a Porsche's exhaust tone, quiet. Fast but quiet!

I would buy the 4 banger but leave that ***** quiet.
