Ford Eco Boost 2.0 Liter Petrol Engine Development Continues 305hp+
I found this information – 2.3 L EcoBoost I-4
The 2.3L version of the EcoBoost engine debuted in the 2015 Lincoln MKC crossover. Based upon the 2.0L EcoBoost, the 2.3L engine produces 289 PS (213 kW; 285 hp) @5600 rpm, 305 lb·ft (414 N·m) @3000 rpm. This engine will be available in the 2015 Ford Mustang, with power figures said to be greater than 305 hp (227 kW; 309 PS) @5500 rpm, 300 lb·ft (407 N·m) @2500 rpm
The 2.3L EcoBoost engine is produced with the 2.0L EcoBoost at the Valencia Engine Plant in Valencia, Spain.
So now for 2015 we have the 2.0 liter bored out to 2.3 liters with +305 hp. Will Range Rover managenent please wake up and 'drop' this into a low luxury performance spec 2015 Evoque Coupe! (I don't want to have to purchase connally leather and internet video for my rear seat passengers to have this engine option.) Give us what the coupe's aggressive styling seems to say. This would make me trade in my 2013 coupe and give Land Rover more of my money.

Yes, I think that will be the 2.3L engine (285HP & 305lb-ft) to be found in the top-of-the-line 2015 Evoque Autobiography edition.
Not sure if Range Rover corporate will drop that same engine into the lesser Evoque line-up for 2015. It'd be nice if it's an option. But one can only hope.....
