Taking a turbocharged trip to sunny South Florida in an EcoBoost ’Stang

We spend most of our waking hours contemplating, analyzing, documenting and reporting on ways to make Ford performance vehicles perform even better. Because we are so focused on the road ahead, it’s nice to step back and recalibrate our backside dyno with some seat time behind the wheel of the latest stock vehicles.

We spent a week in this 2016 Mustang Premium with the 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine. The styling of the latest Mustangs is already sharp, but this one was particularly fetching with Competition Orange paint, factory Le Mans-style stripes and Foundry Black-painted aluminum wheels.

Of course, most of the time our backside is planted firmly in front of a glowing screen serenaded by the pitter-patter of fingers on keyboard. That means getting any meaningful seat time calls for a special occasion like a road trip. Spending a few hours in a car at a media launch offers a solid first impression, but days behind the wheel allows for really getting to know a car.

Our first impression of the Comp Orange ’Stang was just how good it looked in stock form. Sure, if it were ours, we’d mod it. However, it wasn’t to the point that we’d need to drastically change its appearance right away.
