I'm thinking engine fires, lots of recalls. They try to squeeze too much out of something too small. Sure it works in Formula 1 and Indy but not so much with street cars mass produced. No substitute for cubes.

Your not real familiar with wrx, evo, srt4, ect......... are you. They won't have any mechanical issues, it's not like they never put a 4 cyl in a mustang before anyways, and I'm seeing a chance to market a new SVO as well.

No substitute for cubes if your trying to build a top fuel dragster? For your typical commuter car trying to meet carb standards a 4 banger is plenty. I made 400WHp and 400Tq. out of the last 4 banger I owned. It's not the 60s anymore. That no replacement for displacement doesn't really apply anymore.

I should have quoted the OP, my bad. Its one thing to make a statement and then back it up but as it is now I don't see anything supporting the OP.

Ford recalls its four bangers....overheating...engine fires...

http://www.edmunds.com/car-news/2013...fire-risk.html

This isn't yesterday's news either. It's current. Can't testify to wrx, evo, srt4 but I can be sure that none of those engines will be going in the new Mustang. Unless someone decides to toss the Ford engine and put one in. Just my opinion. Worthwhile or worthless, I really want Ford to prove me wrong.

They are talking about a specific engine in that article, the 1.6, and it's not like they are all going up in flames. They determined some sort of risk, so they are just being pro-active. The 4-banger in the Mustang will be a 2.3 or larger I think.

Ford noted that 2013 Ford Escapes with the 2.0-liter and 2.5-liter engines are not part of the recall. Neither are 2013 Ford Fusions equipped with the 2.5-liter and hybrid engines. Owners can contact Ford at 1-866-436-7332.

Well first off I doubt they will put the smallest 4 cyl they run at the moment in the mustang, which is what's having problems, the article also states that the bigger 4 cyls are running fine.

The 1.6 will also not be going in the new Mustang. The bigger turbo 4 in the Focus ST seems to be doing just fine, and I think that will be very similar to the turbo 4 that will be in the Mustang.

There will be recalls regardless because it is a brand new model but I doubt it will be the engine catching fire because of trying to squeeze too much out of something too small.

I could care less if they make a 4cyl, a hybrid or even an all electric Mustang as long as they still make a nice rumbling V8.

I say put a lightweight engine setup in the mustang, then offer it in a stripped down weight saving package 2015 SVO. I'd be interested in something like that.

I think they should've used a Focus or even Fiesta platform to make a little, light 4 cylinder EcoBoost RWD coupe.

A RWD Ford Puma to go up against the MX5/Miata.

I know the Fox body had a 4 cylinder turbo, but still.

The 2.3 worked real well in the SVOs and Turbo Coupes.

If the 4 banger is offered it's makes no difference in my book. It's the same as a V6 as I see it....I wouldn't buy one. But there are a lot of woman that probably will sporting it with some nice mpgs as their reasoning. As far as no replacement comment.....yes their is, it's called technology. That's why the coyote is so amazing for a "little n/a 5.0".

A small engine fire or overheating issue from a totally different engine in a completely different chassis shares no commonality with what is going to be put into the 2015 mustang! Remember that the Ford Focus ST is pushing almost 300 HP at the crank, and it's blowing almost 20PSI STOCK!!!! from the factory. I see absolutely no point to this thread other then pure speculation like 75% of the other stuff on here.

There is a replacement for displacement... They are called Turbochargers and Superchargers... Thankfully Ford figured this out a long time ago.

One thing to remember. At least half if not more of the Mustangs sold are generally the smaller displacement engines. If Ford didn't have those sales they might decide that it wasn't financially worth making a Mustang at all. Yes I own a V6. Couldn't afford a V8 or the insurance that went with it. Rather Drive a v6 Mustang than a v6 Camry. When I'm driving in city traffic light to light, looks is more important than speed. My 2 cents.
