New Ford Mustang to come cranking nearly 500 hp: Report
The upcoming seventh generation GFord Mustang appears to come promising around 500 hp of peak power, claims Ford Authority. As it reports, the V8 version of the new generation Ford Mustang will come with extra power generated by the 5.0-litre naturally aspirated power mill. The S650 generation Ford Mustang will come dishing out nearly 500 hp of power. This means the new Mustang will come with a power bump of almost 30 hp compared to the current Mach 1 and a substantial 50 hp surge over the GT. However, the report doesn't reveal what would be the specific power output for the two variants of the new Mustang.
The report also doesn't reveal the torque output details. The current Mustang GT and Mustang Mach 1 churn out 558 Nm of torque. It is not sure what would be the torque output in the new generation model. The new generation Mustang's V8 power mill is claimed to be a carryover rather than a whole new engine, much like the smaller 2.3 litre EcoBoost four-cylinder motor.
Ford CEO Jim Farley has already suggested that a manual gearbox will remain available for the new Mustang, dedicated for the purist drivers who like the old-school charm of manual driving instead of automatic transmission. He also tweeted with a hashtag signifying the manual transmission.

It could get a redesigned steering wheel and a revamped centre console inside the cockpit, which will be a major attraction.
