The ancestors of this Ford Mustang for sure are saying: What the hell went wrong with the new generations, diesel, where did this come from? It’s known, pure gas, that’s our main food.
Everyone can speak what he wants, but as we repeated many times, diesel cannot be underestimated. To be honest, it sounds awful, diesel-powered Mustang? Let’s check the performance of the Cummins Diesel engine 4BT to see what it can offer.
They are not impressive, 3.9-liter 4-cylinder Cummins Diesel with 105 hp and 265 lb-ft of torque, we think it’s ridiculous. But this is the stock engine. The engine in the Mustang in our video is pretty much the same but with different transmission and higher output, 169 hp and nearly 400 lb-ft of torque but still not close enough to beat some real opponent.
The guy who custom built it, owner of the customizing shop Wholesale Dealer Services of Missouri, says the same, pretty much everything on the car is stock, he just plans to make it faster soon with a compound turbo, but until then the car is a slow-motion machine.
We leave on you to decide, but first watch the video and tell us what you think about diesel Mustangs, and for this model also.
