2020 Ford Mustang High Performance: Hotter four-pot replacing EcoBoost in Australia

Ford has confirmed the Mustang High Performance will replace the unloved EcoBoost in Australia, with more power from its four-cylinder turbocharged engine. The pricier Mustang GT V8 dominates sales in Australia, accounting for 80 per cent of registrations. Ford will be hoping the more powerful High Performance four-cylinder is a stronger seller, and drive the Mustang to new heights on the sales charts when it arrives in February.

You'd think that publicity would be worth letting him break the speed limit here and there.
