Ford Mustang V6 & GT have new engines for 2011

By Updated on

With the new 2011 Ford Mustang GT and Mustang V6 being paraded around, we are still waiting for more information on these new models.

We know from previous reports that Ford has been keen to show off its increase in fuel economy for its V6 (see our report on Ford’s Mustang 1000 lap challenge), but there is also more importantly an increase in power. The 3.7-liter V6 produces 305 horsepower and with 280 Ib-ft of torque is Mustang’s most powerful yet, compare that to the 4.0-liter 210-horsepower “Cologne” unit currently in use.

The GT is set to return with its mechanicals upgraded and still packing its famous 5.0-liter V8 for that all important burble. Hopefully more information will soon be available, in the mean time check out the impressive pictures over at AutoBlog.
