Video Why is the Ecoboost Mustang So Hated?

Video ✅ When the 4 cylinder Mustang Ecoboost was announced I remember it like it was yesterday. The internet went wild, giving the new platform nothing but hate before it even came out. It didn’t help that the new Coyote 5.0 engine was taking the tuner world by storm and putting the Ecoboost in the shadows. However the real question to me always was – was this any better than the V6 that hurt the Mustang’s reputation all these years? To find out we go for a drive in this beautifully done Ecoboost Mustang build painted Millennium Jade from the R34 Skyline GTR. So is the Ecoboost worth the money? Let’s talk about it. ✅ Why is the Ecoboost Mustang So Hated?

while the coyote 50 V8 gave Mustang a
0:03
glorious New Image the EcoBoost Mustang
0:05
was one of debate how could you ever put
0:09
a four-cylinder turbo in a Mustang the
0:11
EcoBoost Mustang has been out since the
0:13
2015 model year and I had this amazing
0:16
opportunity to drive this this beautiful
0:18
Millennium Jade bagged EcoBoost Mustang
0:21
and I wanted to ask the question
0:23
was the EcoBoost really worth changing
0:26
to and at the same time are they even
0:29
worth the money so was the EcoBoost the
0:32
right decision by Ford let’s talk about
0:34
it
0:36
[Music]
0:41
hello and welcome to a 2019 Mustang
0:45
EcoBoost
0:47
10 speed I back in the day I drove
0:49
bongsu’s beautiful manual Big Turbo
0:52
EcoBoost Mustang and before we really
0:56
get into this build let’s talk about the
0:58
history of the EcoBoost and why Ford
1:00
went to the EcoBoost and ditched that V6
1:02
now the V6 engine I’m not gonna lie to
1:05
you and all the other Mustang years it
1:07
was pretty terrible it was essentially a
1:10
glorified Explorer engine but at the
1:12
same time it had no power whatsoever
1:14
fast forward to the 2011 model year and
1:17
we got the Cyclone engine the 3.7 liter
1:20
V6 now the Cyclone is the caveat to the
1:24
V6 argument because you can single turbo
1:26
those and make about 650 wheel
1:28
horsepower it’s pretty crazy in the
1:31
Cyclone engine felt very similar to
1:33
something like a VQ engine however
1:36
EcoBoost four-cylinder came in with the
1:38
S550 model year and a lot of people were
1:41
not about it it’d be in a four-cylinder
1:44
turbo in a Mustang people lost their
1:47
effing mind then you had the argument
1:49
well what about the SVO Fox body that
1:51
nobody bought because Ford was like Hey
1:54
Europe is doing turbo four-cylinder cars
1:57
how come can’t we they tried it America
1:59
said no we can’t do it and then they
2:02
built the turbo Thunderbird Coupe which
2:05
was actually faster than the V8 Foxbody
2:07
Mustang but they didn’t want to tell you
2:10
that point of the matter is four
2:11
cylinder turbos are in Ford’s blood
2:13
somewhere someway across the pond and
2:17
here
2:18
[Applause]
2:20
they went with the ego boost because
2:22
they felt the power potential was just
2:25
as good as the V6 and in times where a
2:28
lot of things were going turbo for gas
2:30
mileage as well lower displacement now
2:33
since 2014 and 2015 since the first time
2:35
I drove an EcoBoost
2:37
[Music]
2:43
I remember saying it’s torque was good
2:47
but it fell off on its face very much
2:50
like a focus SD in the top end of the
2:52
power very good hard-hitting torque at
2:54
the bottom end falls on his face the top
2:57
that made it very usable on Corners etc
3:00
etc but I had never ever driven the 10
3:03
speed with the EcoBoost and now since we
3:06
never had a 10 speed with the V6 this is
3:08
the closest we’re gonna get to it this
3:10
EcoBoost is painted in Millennium Jade
3:13
yes the R34 Skyline GTR color it’s the
3:17
only Mustang in the world painted this
3:20
color in Millennium Jade on an S550
3:22
Mustang looks freaking fantastic it
3:26
looks phenomenal and I kind of like that
3:28
she kept the Retro style Grille up front
3:31
which I usually I’m not gonna lie to you
3:34
usually hate it I usually hate this
3:37
Grill I think it’s tacky but having the
3:40
Chrome with the Millennium Jade a little
3:42
bit of black accents really cleans up
3:44
this car along with that she chose the
3:46
same spoiler I have on my S550 which I
3:49
obviously like and the Euro tail lights
3:51
with the red tail lights on this I don’t
3:53
think it would have worked as well but
3:55
the Euro Tails looks way better the
3:58
EcoBoost is lighter in the front nodes
4:00
and handles very good and with the
4:02
10-speed transmission it’s got a really
4:06
decent Power Band now is it gonna blow
4:08
your mind no but is it gonna feel pretty
4:11
good for a daily commuter in a Mustang
4:14
body 100
4:16
and this has exhaust intercooler and
4:20
blow off valve she also has a legitimate
4:23
Mr Chrome painted dashboard there is no
4:27
expense bear because she has work wheels
4:29
on an airlift kit at first I thought
4:32
this thing was static in the photo and I
4:34
was like oh God that’s gonna be
4:35
miserable but she did the bagged Mustang
4:38
I trained to very much arguably started
4:40
by my friend Rob Raybon back in 2010 or
4:43
2011. can I get that turbo flutter
4:45
though
4:53
interesting okay so with the manual most
4:56
the gears very much feel the same in the
4:59
10 speed first and second gear don’t
5:02
feel like they have a lot of guts third
5:04
gear though it really feels like it gets
5:07
itself going it feels like there’s more
5:09
power
5:26
so check this out this is second gear
5:30
on its face like and then third gear
5:33
comes in it starts reeling it out
5:44
at the same time this airlift suspension
5:46
with these big wheels is actually
5:49
holding its own pretty good as long as
5:51
you know what you’re getting yourself
5:51
into
5:53
oh yeah
5:56
yeah that up shift from third to Fourth
5:59
feels really nice the 10 speed suits the
6:02
EcoBoost pretty good it keeps it in
6:05
power and a lot of people always ask me
6:07
is the EcoBoost worth it as a car I
6:10
think as a daily driver it’s a pretty
6:13
cool car because you have a good looking
6:15
Mustang you can’t make the argument as
6:17
much as the old V6 car where you’re like
6:19
why would you ever buy the V6 because a
6:22
lot of the times the price gap between
6:24
the V6 and the GT was not that big and
6:28
with this you know personally would I
6:30
get a coyote of course I would I’m a
6:32
coyote motor Fanboy but the EcoBoost is
6:35
not a terrible option especially for
6:38
somebody’s first sports car they get a
6:40
blow off noise right they get the
6:43
experience this is a hard Parker that
6:46
also feels great to drive a lot of the
6:49
times with these stamps builds or these
6:51
show car builds they’re miserable to
6:54
drive I mean absolutely miserable people
6:57
will do something wrong with the bags or
7:00
they’ll just have it set up wrong and it
7:02
just doesn’t feel good to drive it feels
7:04
too floaty and the ability of hard
7:07
parking the car airing it down and
7:09
having that beautiful state
7:11
and then you know out of nowhere you can
7:14
just go back to normal and the wheel gap
7:17
of it being raised isn’t as bad as it
7:19
used to be back in the day when you had
7:21
airbags you would sit like a monster
7:23
truck when you were aired up and it kind
7:25
of ruined you know the kind of vibe of
7:28
the car sport mode
7:32
okay
7:33
[Music]
7:37
I feel very very confident in the
7:41
corners like you can floor it around
7:43
some of the corners in the right gear
7:45
now here’s the thing is the V6 better
7:50
than the four cylinder EcoBoost
7:54
stock for stock
7:56
I would take the EcoBoost modified
8:00
that’s a little bit of a different story
8:02
because I’ve actually driven a twin
8:05
turbocharged Cyclone engine that used
8:07
F-150 EcoBoost turbos and that thing was
8:11
actually pretty fun to drive
8:13
oh my God
8:20
that was sick and also since this
8:23
doesn’t have a down pipe on it or
8:25
anything it doesn’t happen
8:27
that Aureus EcoBoost rasp you get from a
8:30
lot of the cars the owner of this car’s
8:32
name is Savannah and she has a really
8:34
funny license plate says big oof and
8:36
this car has gone through a lot of
8:38
different stages it was a light blue at
8:40
one point had a whole bunch of different
8:42
things and then she just went completely
8:44
Bonkers with this car created something
8:47
very beautiful
8:49
it is a looker and a lot of people say
8:53
this should have been an oem color or
8:55
similar to it and
8:57
I totally
8:58
would have it sold
9:01
don’t know because they had that really
9:03
interesting gray green that was on a few
9:06
of the cars as well and that did not
9:07
sell I have a big big saying on this
9:10
channel saying you don’t have to have
9:13
the top of the line car to modify the
9:15
car right I’ve done Corollas before I’ve
9:18
done a lot of different modified
9:19
philosophies to a car and a lot of
9:22
people could argue that this car
9:24
is that truly a real Mustang because it
9:26
does have a V8 in it and yes it’s a
9:29
Mustang and the parts are crazy
9:31
available for this but the way that
9:34
Savannah did this car was definitely to
9:37
use what you got mentality I’m not even
9:39
she was like I’m not even gonna bother
9:41
by making a big turbo or anything like
9:44
that I’m gonna focus on the car’s
9:46
strengths I can make this car look
9:49
beautiful make the ride quality very
9:51
fantastic and less floaty from the
9:53
factory give it a nice paint job give
9:56
the dashboard a nice paint job and some
9:58
personality enjoy the car bring it to
10:01
car shows and have a car for the culture
10:05
so to speak now you think that this
10:07
mustang accomplishes all those boxes now
10:10
EcoBoost owners I don’t want you going
10:12
around telling people that you’re the
10:14
fastest car in the world because
10:16
you’re not it’s
10:18
it’s money
10:19
it is these Harleys are so loud in front
10:22
of me dude I say that as I have lawn
10:24
tube headers and a loud exhaust on my
10:26
Mustang like I’m any different these
10:28
guys on these Harleys are going 10 miles
10:32
an hour up this mountain I thought you
10:36
were supposed to be American torque in
10:37
those things all I’m thinking about
10:39
right now is that South Park episode
10:41
with the Harleys guys what do you think
10:44
about the EcoBoost Mustang what was your
10:48
reaction to it when it first was
10:50
unveiled and what is your reaction to it
10:52
now what do you think of it do you just
10:55
see it as the rental car Mustang because
10:58
that’s what you get when you rent a
10:59
Mustang 90 of the time or do you just
11:01
see it as the inferior or do you have a
11:04
different argument where you say
11:05
it’s not inferior it’s just different
11:09
and on that note I upload on Tuesdays
11:11
Thursdays and Sundays and I will see you
11:14
guys next time take it easy have a
11:16
wonderful day goodbye
11:18

11:28
