Since the announcement of the new 2.3L High Performance Package for the EcoBoost Mustang at the New York Auto Show, we’ve received several questions about how the new package will handle seats when it goes on sale this fall. So we’ve broken down the seating options that the new Mustang 2.3L High Performance Package (HPP) will feature.
Before going into availability, we should first note how the HPP will be offered. In that regard, the HPP will replace the EcoBoost Performance Pack currently offered on EcoBoost Mustang models. Since the EcoBoost was first made available for the 2015 model year, buyers were able to opt for either a base model or a better-equipped Premium model. The same will stay true for the 2020 Mustang EcoBoost, and the 2.3L HPP will be made available on both.
Now, those interested in the new 2.3L High Performance Package for the 2020 Ford Mustang EcoBoost will have three seats to choose from. First are the basic cloth seats for base model cars. These are followed by two different seat options for models in the Premium trim.
The standard seats on the Mustangs EcoBoost in the Premium trim level are leather buckets with mild bolstering. Those looking for an even sportier seat will be able to opt for optional Recaro buckets.
The leather Recaros are currently a $1,595 option, and we aren’t sure if that price will change for the 2020 Mustang. These seats provide much more aggressive bolstering compared to the standard seat, and have seatback openings that allow for the placement of a racing harness.

No price figures have been released for the Mustang 2.3L High Performance Package, or the Handling Package that can be optioned on top of the HPP. Notably, the EcoBoost Performance Pack for 2019 and older models was a $2,495 option, and the additional enhancements should see the price of the 2.3L HPP go beyond that.
