Set to go on sale next year with a choice of three engines - as revealed by the Morpace survey we wrote about yesterday
- the 2015 Ford Mustang is rumored to receive more powertrains after its launch.
Acccordng to Car&Driver
, the Blue Oval company is working a EcoBoost twin-turbo V8 mill, internally known as “Voodoo”, that will develop between 550 to 600 HP
when fitted in the next-generation Shelby GT350. Interestingly enough, our source also speculates that Ford will continue to offer the Shelby GT500 - with the same supercharged 5.8-liter V8 - although past reports said the performance nameplate will be dropped and replaced by a new Mach 1.
In addition to the “Voodoo” engine, which displaces between 5.0 and 5.5-liters and has a 180-degree crankshaft, the 2015 Mustang will gain an updated “Coyote” 5.0-liter that could deliver as much as 500 HP. What’s more, Top Speed
adds that Ford is also considering the 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 found in the Taurus SHO for the new Mustang.
Until these rumors are either confirmed or denied, we do known the 2015 Ford Mustang will become available with a 300 HP naturally-aspirated V6, a 310 HP four-cylinder and the already familiar “Coyote” V8 as the range-topping GT (before any other high-performance iteration).
