Note: The '11 mustang will have the ecoboost motor in it. V6 with turbo putting out more HP the the V8 version (not GT500). Also in either '12 or '13 ford will be placing the 2.0L ecoboost into the focus which will produce 225hp at the crank (around 200-205 at the wheels).

Also note: The 5.0 V8 is comming back.

I don't like turbo engines, I wish if we in EU could have this new 2.0 L naturally aspirated engine with 155 hp.
And what I really wish is if I could have new GT 5.0 L V8....

I don't like that boost. For example when Jeremy Clarkson tests ST, he says -any gear any revs and you get great acceleration. Which is normal for turbo engines, new Ecoboost 2.0 L gets 203 hp at 5500 rpm.
What I want is totaly different thing. High rev naturally aspirated engine.
Turbo engines like new Ecoboost are, I'm shure, awesome -it's just that I like different kind of engines.

Anyway I wanted to say this. New Opel Astra costs in croatia 15500 euros which is same as old model so new Focus will cost 14500-15000 euros.
I'm 95% shure!!!

You're way off buddy...

The 2011 Mustang gets the 3.7L V6 making 305hp for the base, and the new 5.0 is rumored at 412hp, but no SAE testing on it yet.

*They will not be offering the 3.5L Ecoboost motor because its too close between the two new powerplants.*

Also Ford has already stated the new 2.0L Ecoboost motor easily makes 240hp...

Posted via FF Mobile Also no offical word on whether the focus will get the 2.0l ecoboost. If it does show up itll kost likely be in a performance svt or st version. More then likely we will see a 1.6l ecoboost in the Focus as possibly a second engine choice. All depends on what Ford decides to do. Im hoping they make the 1.6L an option to compete with the 2.5l of mazda and the other higher output 4s the other companys have. The 2.0 is a good start and i suspect to see the 2.0turbo in a sport model making 220+...but i also wanna see a midrange. Itll give people a chance to get a bit more power without having to pay the price for a sport model which Im sure will be grazing 25k. So incase I cant afford the sport model Id still be satisfied with stepping down to the 1.6l.

Also ford i think you should put the 1.6L turbo in the fiesta.
