The 2020 Ford Mustang EcoBoost High Performance Package Drives Like A European Sports Car
The 2020 Ford Mustang EcoBoost High Performance Package is what happens when you drop the engine from a Focus RS into the body of a grand tourer. The exterior dimensions don’t change, but damn do they feel like they did. It’s amazing what a lightened nose and some good rubber will do.
The game of making cars better performers can be played in a variety of ways, but my favorite method by far is simply cutting weight. This is what the HPP EcoBoost Mustang does, and after the two or so hours I spent behind the wheel, I can say I’m walking away from a winner.
Anyone who says the EcoBoost Mustang HPP “isn’t a real Mustang” without driving it first is seriously depriving themselves.
