“We are delivering a more distinctive and emotional design presence that celebrates the total performance of Mustang,” said Darrell Behmer, Mustang chief designer. “This latest Mustang design is very respectful of its heritage while continuing to look forward with a more powerful and modern look.”
Changes under the hood include the 444 hp that the 5.0-liter V8 of the BOss 302 now makes, and the mighty 5.8-liter aluminum V8 of the Shelby GT500, with its 650 hp, which makes it the most powerful production V8 in the world, at least that’s what Ford says.
“It’s a significant improvement to our powertrain offerings. It lets owners take an automatic out on a track day or whenever they want to drive sportier, and lets them have the convenience of switching to manual control,” says Mustang vehicle engineer Tom Barnes.
