The galloping pony nestled in the grille serves as a reminder that the Mustang is most at home on the open road. Both the coupe and convertible come with your choice of a 300-hp 3.7-liter V-6, a 310-hp 2.3-liter turbo four-cylinder, or a 435-hp 5.0-liter V-8; choose from a six-speed manual or a six-speed automatic. The rear-wheel-drive chassis is eager to attack corners while enabling a smooth ride when cruising. An updated Mustang debuts in fall 2017 with a new 10-speed automatic as an option.
Now history is poised to repeat itself with the introduction of the 2018 Ford Mustang, which drops the current car’s naturally aspirated 3.7 liter v-6 and leaves Ford’s updated pony car with only two engine choices: a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder and a naturally aspirated 5.0-liter Coyote V-8.
Of course, today’s Mustang engines are much more powerful than those of 25 years ago. While Ford isn’t ready to talk numbers, the company notes that the 2.3-liter has been updated to incorporate a new overboost function. We expect the revised engine, currently rated at 310 horsepower and 320 lb-ft of torque, will boast numbers closer to the version found in the Ford Focus RS, which is rated at 350 horsepower and 350 lb-ft.
The Mustang GT’s 5.0-liter V-8 also has been revised. Mustang chief engineer Carl Widmann states that the only truly carryover piece from the current 5.0-liter is the crankshaft. Along with a new fuel-delivery system employing both port and direct injection, the updated V-8 also revs higher than before. A quad-pipe exhaust system replaces the current dual-pipe unit, and, as on its fiercest competitor, the Chevrolet Camaro, there’s an optional variable exhaust system that keeps things quiet at lower rpm but amps up the noise courtesy of valves that open when heavier throttle is applied.
