“Is the four-banger ‘Stang ready to depose the 5.0? Not quite, says Matt.”
I’m not sure what the above quoted comment is about. The Mustang EcoBoost was never meant as a Mustang GT replacement. It was created as a global car for people living in areas where fuel costs are a concern. As well, the car will benefit those who live in countries that tax car owners based on engine displacement. To expect this particular car to be an equivalent to a Mustang 5.0L is a bit ridiculous…most car makers ensure their product line follows a strict hierarchy and Ford is no exception.
The video footage is pretty cool…I just don’t care for the commentary. I really shouldn’t have expected much from the commentary, since Matt Farah is more of a street scene type of guy (he certainly isn’t of the caliber of most mainstream reviewers, such as R&T, MT, Automobile, and C&D).
If you’re a glutton for punishing commentary, you can also read the R&T’s Facebook comments about this particular subject:
