  • 2.0-liter EcoBoost – This engine is only available on the ST powertrain and delivers 252 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque. It’s got pep to spare and comes with a responsive six-speed manual transmission.
  • 2.3-liter EcoBoost – Exclusively on the limited-edition RS powertrain, this engine offers a high-performance 350 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque and comes with a six-speed manual transmission to give you complete control.
