In American automobile history, few cars have created a legion of fans more so than the Ford Mustang has since being introduced as a 1964 1/2 model at the 1964 New York World’s Fair. Owners are proud to show their Mustangs at any opportunity like last weekend’s All Ford Show hosted by the Syracuse Shelby Mustang Club at Clay Central Park in Liverpool, New York.

There are now six generations of the Ford Mustang as, last year, Ford starting selling the latest generation of the Mustang code named S550.

This latest generation does not come without some controversy. While the flag ship is still the Mustang GT powered by a V8 engine and there is still a V6 model. The S550 introduced a small displacement, turbocharged Ecoboost model. This is the first production Mustang with a turbocharger since the limited production SVO Mustang back in the 1986 model year.

This will bring a whole new chapter to the Mustang legacy. Imports have been using such technology for several years and have garnered their own fans of these tuner cars. Now, the Mustang will throw its hat into the ring with the 2.3 liter Ecoboost engine. Already, companies like COBB Tuning have introduced technology to enhance the Ecoboost Mustang’s horsepower via electronic tuning. Even Ford Performance announced a tuner coming for it’s Ecoboost models including the Mustang.

This generation has produced a lot of excitement in the Mustang community and I expect it to be a big sales hit for Ford. I might even get one….someday.
