I Have to Tell You The Truth About New Ford Mustangs


rev up your engines, today I tell you
the truth about the Mustang EcoBoost four-cylinder engine Mustang in this
case it’s a 2016 I’m gonna show you what I like about it what I don’t like about
it we’ll start with the likes well it’s a new aggressive Mustang style I like to
style it’s got a lot of the classic ideas in it it’s a nice looking car
there’s no arguing that the upgraded suspension from the all the ones it’s a
real improvement they really handle well and under the hood this one that’s a
four-cylinder engine and you might say ah the four-cylinder engine well this
four-cylinder engine puts out 310 horsepower and to give you a comparison
a 66 Mustang v8 stock put out 164 horsepower this puts up a lot more
than that 310 and when you go inside it’s a classic Mustang set up
for the old fashioned style gauges they’re still digital but they look
analog and this particular one has almost ninety three thousand miles on
starts right up now granted it doesn’t make the noise of a v8 one does but with 301 horsepower it’s got pulling
here get up and go it is all the modern conveniences steering column controls
now this particular one has a six-speed automatic transmission I would love the
standard myself but this is a 6-speed automatic but it does have the paddle
shifters so you can paddle shift it and if you’re talking to newer one you can
get that 10 speed automatic that Ford and Chevy jointly put together and that
of course they fell apart about that tends to be too automatic I do have to
say the ones I’ve driven I can drive faster knows then I can manually shift
it myself the computers on those have insane control they have various levels
of driving and are all set up to shift different ways to get more power or
better gas mileage it gets about 31 miles a gallon on the highway
if you don’t dog it so it actually does get good gas mileage the last time I
seriously draw 2016 Mustang they had a v8 engine I only got about eight miles a
gallon driving the thing around because I drove it really hard four cylinder
engines they do get better gas mileage an interesting thing about this setup is
you got 301 horsepower if you run it on premium gas but if you’re running on
regular gas it will run perfectly fine it’ll just lose a few of those ponies
and be 200 something horsepower you don’t want to buy premium gas that’ll
run perfectly fine on regular gas it just won’t have as much speed and
they’re the choice is yours so you’re not stuck with you always have to use
regular gas but on the other hand it’s also the negative aspects
it’s a four-cylinder engine revs higher it uses a turbocharger to get more power
and gasoline direct injection there’s a lot extra pressure now so far this one’s
got like 90,000 miles not if customers had no problems with its work perfectly
fine it does a lot of highway driving on it and it’s held up quite well but
realize as they age a highly stressed four-cylinder engine with extremely high
pressure gasoline direct injection a turbocharger if you drive it hard yes it
is going to wear out faster than a normal engine especially a v8 engine
that doesn’t have the strain because yes as four-cylinder engine does have
horsepower and torque it actually has more torque than it does
horsepower but that’s done at higher rpms which of course where’s the engine
out faster just like the gas mileage you can get 31 miles again if you drive this
thing going 60 miles on a highway just cruising but not if you’re accelerating
all the time slam the brakes accelerating you’ll never get that kind of gas
mileage now the newer 10 speed automatics that come with these four
cylinder turbos they get even better gas mileage because
out of those 10 speeds three of them are overdrive speeds so on the highway it
gets even better gas mileage than this one and on the more modern one with that fancy 10 speed automatic that’s the same 10 speed automatic they put in their
pickup trucks and then the Mustangs it’s the big v8 engines so it has no problem
taking the power this four-cylinder engine you’re not gonna over tax it but
with this six speed automatic my customer owns this it’s a relatively
conservative driver it still shifts perfectly fine but I’ve had customers
there were much more aggressive drivers and the 6-speed automatic is the first
thing that’s gonna wear out if you put those 301 ponies all the time Flooring it
with the 6-speed automatic transmission but the Newer one with the 10 speed
automatic no they can take it I’ve got customers the big trucks and the big v8
Mustangs with those ten speed automatics the only problem they had was originally
they’re a little software glitch had to reprogram but the transmissions themselves are really solid units and hooking them up to a four-cylinder engine is no problem
of course they’re easier to work on there’s actually working space look at
us I get all kinds of room in here for working on it you do have to work on if
you want to modify it there’s a lot of room to do work on because let’s face it
there’s Mustang it was designed to fit a v8 engine and you put a four-cylinder
you’re gonna have a lot of working space it’s not all cramped in and really go back
years ago when they made the little Mustangs that had the four-cylinder
engine in it man those were terrible engines they could barely get out of the
wrong way they just as far as I was concerned weren’t real Mustangs but with
301 horsepower on this it certainly is a real mustang big discs on the front and
in the back and if you’re into modifications these babies can be
modified to the hilt Mustangs have always been upgradable vehicles you
could put whatever you want you want to put carbon-fiber brakes whatever you
want to do off it’s a bail wolf these if you want if you know you can
just drive it around close up look the same as I the other Mustang got the
pony’s got the aggressive headlights great-looking car and when you consider
the new ones 2020 this is twenty five thousand dollars starting with the
four-cylinder engine it pretty much started thirty five thousand dollars
with the v8 engine in them cuz you’d be saving almost $10,000 car looks exactly
the same most of the feature the same happy with
three hundred some horsepower anyways go ahead get the four banger you can get
it with the same really good ten speed automatic transmission f4 or 8 either
way they still look like Mustangs and if you’re talking about a brand new
one the new four-cylinder once put out 330 horsepower if you get the high
output four-cylinder engine plenty enough horsepower just realize like I always warn people you can have insane power or you can have great gas mileage but you can’t combine both if you drive this conservatively yes you can get 30
something miles a gallon on a highway but not if you drive really aggressively
all the time so now you know the truth about these four-cylinder EcoBoost
Mustangs and here’s some bonus questions and answers here’s some breaking news
for your Toyota Supra fans or I should say BMW roadster fans
it looks like Toyota is going to announce during the Daytona race cuz
Toyota’s a big sponsor there that they’re gonna be able to buy a
four-cylinder Toyota Supra also known as BMW roadster here in the United States
now this is no big shocker they already sell them in Japan it’s a course of BMW
four-cylinder engine it’s in a BMW builds the cars a fancy one that they
sell in Japan four cylinder that has 255 horsepower there’s also a smaller
version that’s 225 and I’m sure they’ll sell only the higher one in the United States to me this is really kind of bizarre because big thing about the Supra was
that they had a six cylinder engine and now I’m figuring off or a four cylinder
version the Supra instead of the BMW six I’m sure their not going to give them away I saw the price tag on the new supra at the auto show a couple weeks ago man I was
lambasted by what they’re asking for I guess they’re too much so now they’re
gonna sell the force on the version that’s a little bit cheaper just realize
as I said before this isn’t really a Toyota it’s a BMW it’s made by BMW and a BMW factory they are gonna be selling them how it looks like they’re gonna
make an announcement in a week or two PC 36 says scotty I have a 2014 VW GTI
it’s 40,000 miles about two years ago use I owe 13,000 on it now the prior
owner had the water pump replaced under warranty and the past summer the turbo went out but it was covered under the seven-year
warranty is gonna be up soon should I pay it off and keep it or
should I sell it waiting cover alone solid hey come on let’s use our heads
people I tell you what garbage Volkswagen is making look at that you
having it as 40,000 miles now and before it had 40,000 miles the water pump point
out that turbocharger went out they are just making these things like crap they
market the heck out of them and they sell a lot of them but you ask any honest
mechanic like myself they’ll tell you the truth that they are endless
money pits and not just when I’m saying here my own customers every single
customer of mine in the last 20 years whoever bought a Volkswagen said Scotty I’ll never buy another Volkswagen again it was a rolling pile of crap as it aged
now yeah they’re fun to drive when they’re new with a turbo and
everything but they fall apart and it cost a fortune to fix get rid of that
Volkswagen now so if you never want to miss another one
