As we have been following along on the new 2011 Ford Mustang series, three new Ford engines will be introduced in spring of 2010 to be incorporated into these Mustangs. These three new engines get more power to the ground more efficiently, and as the same time with intention in providing better fuel economy than its predecessors. All of these engines are mated to the new six-speed manual and automatic transmissions.
-For the 2011 V6 Mustang – a 305-horsepower, 30 mpg 3.7-liter V-6 engine using Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT) as standard equipment.
-For the regular Ford Mustang GT – a. 5.0-liter V-8 returns in Mustang GT, now with 32 valves, Ti-VCT and 412 horsepower.
-For the 2011 Shelby GT500 – a Ford GT-inspired aluminum block for its 5.4-liter supercharged V-8, leading to lighter weight, 550 horsepower and top performance.
