2015 2.3L Turbo engine design Question

Anyone know what 2.3l block will be used on the 2015 2.3T? Is it like the ones in the Mazda's or some newer fords? Duratec a, zetas, Mazda L, ect? Or is it a new block design entirely? It would be cool if it was based on the Lima block but aluminum? Any thoughts?

When did my thread get moved here? I was specifically asking the 2.3l people hoping they might know since most other people either don't know or don't care lol.... Can it be moved back? Or deleted so I can ask it with a diff title in maybe the off topic section or something

I didn't move it, not sure how it ended up here. Looking at the title, and subject though, it looks like it belongs here.

Ford and Mazda are no longer a corporate entity together. And I am given to understand that it is an all new engine.

Yeah I made a new thread lol hoping some 2.3l ppl would answer, I also tried to rename the thread but I couldn't :p and ohh that's good! No Mazda parts in the cars anymore although this new mustang sorta looks like a ford fusion/Mazda 6....

I hope not, because the 2.3l turbo in my 2010 Mazda CX-7 was terrible.
