Ford has announced that its 2011 Mustang GT will come with a 5.0 liter engine, the V8 is expected to push out 412 horsepower, much more powerful than the current 4.7-liter V-8 with 315hp. There maybe those who wonder how Ford has managed to get all that extra power from just an increase in displacement, this has to be down to refining the engine.

Ford has not just given the engine a makeover; the Blue Oval is to offer a number of new features not seen on the current model. These include EPAS, this is an electric power assist steering offering greater response when a driver needs to make quick corrections while driving.

The automaker, the only one not to demand any government funded help will also include a new set of specially tuned anti-roll bars, shocks and springs, this will add to that already superb steering. So we know that Ford has worked on the increase in power and better handling, but there is something missing.

With all that extra performance and handling you need a good set of boots and brakes, Ford is to include 19-inch alloy wheels with performance tires as well as 14-inch front discs providing superb stopping power.

The 2011 Ford Mustang GT 5.0 will come with the option as a convertible, we are not sure what kind of effect that will have with the vehicles performance, but Ford will have worked hard to make sure that it is comparable to the hardtop version.
