We’ve talked a lot about the 2020 Mustang 2.3L High Performance Package car, including posting up a live photo gallery for fans to check out. We’ve talked about all the special tidbits the car will offer like the fancy seats, brake cooling technology, and the unique badging. The only things we don’t yet know are how much it will cost and when it will launch.
Order guides have allegedly turned up that show how much the 2020 Mustang 2.3L High Performance Package will cost when it hits dealers later this fall. According to the alleged order guides, the 2020 Mustang 2.3L High Performance Package will add $4,995 to the base price of the 2020 EcoBoost Coupe.
That would mean if you order the performance package, the starting price would be $32,760 with destination included. If you also want to add the handling package, it tacks on another $1,995, but CarsDirect reports that adding the Handling Package also requires the addition of Equipment Group 101A running the total up to $36,755.
If you want the 10-speed automatic that will set you back $1,595. These prices are probably higher than many Mustang fans hoped. If you opt for the 2.3L High Performance Package and then add the Handling Package, you could buy a base Mustang GT for $30 less money and have oodles more power and torque. That said, some people don’t want a big V8 and may find the 2.3L EcoBoost more appealing.
The $4,995 asking price adds more than power, but it’s hard to justify that kind of money for 20 horsepower and no more torque. Handling is improved with Mustang GT brakes, better aero, quad-tip exhaust system, and other tidbits. The Handling Pack is only offered on the 2020 Mustang Coupe and adds 19-inch wheels, Pirelli P Zero summer tires, MagneRide damping, rear sway bar, and semi-metallic brakes.

Oh if only Ford took the twin turbo AWD system out of the Flex Limited and placed it in our favorite pony car! Drive the HP to 400 and there you go, a competitor to the MoPar AWD performance package. That will make for a good wet road and snow car. Maybe sales increase in places where that kind of weather affects what does sell.
You have to turn the engine 90 degrees in the Mustang.
If that pricing is true, they probably won’t be selling many.
A modern Mustang SVT??? The handling should be much better with the materially lighter engine.
