The sixth-generation pony gets its first upgrade, drops V-6 engine

The sixth-generation Ford Mustang arrived in late 2013 for the 2015 model year as the company’s most advanced pony car yet. Not only redesigned inside and out, the new Mustang also gained an independent rear suspension, a first for the muscle car since its inception in 1964. The new generation also marked the return of the four-cylinder ’Stang, with Ford adding a turbocharged, 2.3-liter EcoBoost to the usual V-6 and V-8 engine lineup. In early 2017, the sixth-generation Mustang received its mid-cycle update. Although initial rumors and spy shots didn’t suggest a major upgrade, the Mustang showed up with quite a few changes inside and out.

A new front fascia makes the 2015 model seem old, while the cabin boasts significant improvements in the tech department. More upgrades were operated under the hood, where Ford added a new automatic transmission and dropped the entry-level engine. The two remaining units gained power increases. The chassis also received its fair share of upgrades to make the 2018 Mustang the sportiest pony car Ford has built to date. Obviously, these changes were designed to bring the Mustang up to date compared to the new-generation Camaro. Naturally, the facelift will also trickle down to the higher performance versions of the current Mustang, including the Shelby GT350. But until that happens, let’s have a closer look at the newest ’Stang in town.

Update 7/27/2017: Ford has finally announced prices for the 2018 Ford Mustang, and to our surprise, it’s still one hell of a deal. Check out the prices section below to learn all about it!

Is This Really a Prototype of the Next-Gen Ford Mustang?

The 2024 Ford Mustang test prototype, ambushed at a parking lot. What we managed to see and learn, so far

The American icon known as the Ford Mustang has evolved through six generations so far, not counting the Mach E. The current S550 generation of the Pony car is coming to an end and the 2024 Mustang, internally dubbed S650, is on its way. While we may see a production version as soon as April 2023, the next-gen Mustang is still being developed and under heavy camouflage. With that being said, test prototypes have started appearing on public roads, and YouTube channel, TFLnow presents the latest (so far) spy footage of the S650 Mustang prototype.

A Mini with a Hayabusa Engine Gives Nightmares To A Ford Mustang

A Mini with a Hayabusa Engine Gives Nightmares To A Ford Mustang

A Hayabusa-swapped classic Mini proves that lightness and high revs can match the raw power of a big V-8...sort of

Drag racing two very different vehicles usually result in a thrilling outcome. CarWow’s latest drag battle features an almost stock, Ford Mustang GT, and a classic Mini Cooper that has been heavily modified. At first glance, it hardly sounds like a fair race, but the Mini has dropped the standard blender in favor of a Hayabusa motorcycle engine. It seems like a classic race between horsepower and lightweight, in which the Mustang has a lot more engine displacement and horsepower while the Mini relies on lightness and high revs.

Rendering: This Off-Road 1969 Ford Mustang is Ready for the Apocalypse

Ever wanted to modify a Ford Mustang for off-road use?

The Ford Mustang is probably the last vehicle in people’s minds if they’re looking for a car that can take them off-road. However, in the field of digital art or even when modifying a vehicle in real life, almost nothing is impossible—at least given the right imagination and/or financial capability. This 1969 Ford Mustang has been rendered to be an off-roader, and it’s something one might be able to do in real life.

The Best Electric Family Cars for 2022

The Best Electric Family Cars for 2022

If you’re in the market for an electric family car, then this is the list you need to check out

As of 2022, it’s safe to say that EVs are mainstream. With all major mass-market automakers offering multiple EVs in their portfolio, it is confusing to choose one. EVs, with their convenience and refinement, make for great family runabouts if the range isn’t a major concern, but, with a whole range of EVs to choose from, the decision-making process is getting increasingly difficult. So, here is a list of 10 EVs that we think should be on your list if you are on the lookout for an electric family car.

This 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Is One Of The Last Classic Mustangs Worth Buying

This 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Is One Of The Last Classic Mustangs Worth Buying

There’s more to this 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1 than meets the eye, and it could be the attainable American classic you are looking for

If you are a muscle car enthusiast, you probably know that around the mid-1970s, things went really bad for those of us looking for big power and performance. The oil crisis meant gas was expensive and American carmakers were forced to take their big V-8s and neuter them. The 1973 Ford Mustang Mach 1 is one of the cars that got the worst of it. Despite having a 351 Cleveland under the hood, the most powerful version of the 1973 Mustang Mach 1 made 285 horsepower. But that doesn’t mean this 1973 example should be overlooked, especially when it has been fully restored and is currently listed for a reasonable price.

The 1969 Ford Mustang BOSS 520 Was The Ultimate Mustang

The 1969 Ford Mustang BOSS 520 Was The Ultimate Mustang

The forgotten Mustang BOSS 520 was a track weapon from the 1960s that never went racing

The legacy of the Ford Mustang dates back to 1962 with the Ford Mustang I concept car. Since then, we have gotten many iconic interpretations of the car, including high-performance variants like the Shelby GT350, GT500, BOSS 302, and the BOSS 429, which is considered to be the ultimate ’Stang. The BOSS 429, itself, was the basis for other interesting projects such as the mid-engine Ford Mustang LID, but there was another, more conventional version that, sort of, made it - the Mustang BOSS 520.

1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1 Rendered in Unreal Engine 4 Looks Better Than Real Life

We’ve reached a point where computer graphics have officially blurred the line between virtual and real life

Over the years, computer-generated imagery (CGI) brought our fantasies to life in digital form. Our wildest imaginations are able to be recreated in an alternate reality that isn’t bound by any laws of physics or what science has told us. CGI has also blurred the line between the virtual and reality, and this prime example that we see here of a 1971 Ford Mustang Mach 1 recreated in Unreal Engine 4 is further proof of this.

An EV Price War Could Bring Major Trouble for Tesla and the Electric Car Market

This could be really good for Ford, and really bad for Tesla

One of the main problems with Electric cars is that they are incredibly expensive to buy up front. Sometimes the sticker price can be up to $14,000-$15,000 more than their gasoline-powered cousin. However, the gap in price between these two kinds of automobiles is closing, and Ford’s CEO, Jim Farley, thinks it will eventually come to a head.

Ever wondered what a true-blooded American muscle car can do on an open stretch of highway with no speed limits? Well, the following videos that I’ve put together will give you an idea of what exactly it feels like to go flat out on the German Autobahn. The cars in question aren’t your base- or mid-spec models, but some of the most potent versions from the big three with proper burly V-8s under the hood.

Ford Mustang GTT By Zero To 60 Designs Combines Ford GT And Ferrari Design Cues

If you ever wondered what a Ford Mustang GT would look like if it was styled in Italy, a California-based tuner has answered that question

The Ford Mustang GT is a subject of affection for many tuners and custom shops. But among them, Zero to 60 Designs seems to have made one of the most controversial, yet aesthetically pleasing versions of the car. The design for the S550 Mustang was actually introduced back at the 2016 SEMA Show. The idea is to bridge the gap between the Ford Mustang and Ford GT, both in terms of looks and performance.

The fastest 1966 Ford Mustang is an epic, 600-horsepower mash-up of Honda and Nissan hardware

There are certain things in the automotive world that are generally accepted and others that are a no-go. A good example would be putting a Chevy LS engine in a Mazda RX-7. The one shown on That Racing Channel, however, has a bit of a Fast & Furious Tokyo Drift vibe to it, because it features one of the most popular engine swaps in one of the most unlikely places – a 1966 Ford Mustang.

The Next-Gen Ford Mustang Could Break Cover in April 2023

National Mustang Day next year would be a fitting date to debut the iconic American muscle car’s seventh iteration

You’ve heard the rumors, seen the spy shots, and have probably come across a bunch of renders of the next-gen Mustang already. Known internally as the S650, expect the 2024 Mustang to make its debut in April next year. CarAndDriver anticipates that the blue oval will debut the seventh-gen model at its 60th Anniversary, down to the exact date: April 17th. Known as the National Mustang Day, this date would be ideal to unveil an all-new generation of the Pony car. It was on April the 17th, 1964 that the original Ford Mustang was unveiled for the very first time at the New York World’s Fair.

We finally see how the manual and automatic Nissan Z perform against each other and their direct competitors

With the Nissan Z about to go on sale, the Japanese company finally handed out press cars in order for us to find out how it stacks up to its competitors. Hagerty was lucky enough to get two cars – a manual and an automatic - and pit them not just against one another, but against a GR Supra, a Mustang Mach 1, and as a bonus, a 2010 Aston Martin V-8 Vantage. The results are as much surprising as they are not.

The Shelby GT500-H Is a 900-Horsepower Special You Can Rent by the Day

The Shelby GT500-H Is a 900-Horsepower Special You Can Rent by the Day

Why buy a 900-HP Mustang Shelby when you can rent one from Hertz?

Shelby and Hertz. That’s a very bizarre collaboration, if you think of it. These two companies have teamed up and come up with two special vehicles – the Mustang Shelby GT500-H and the Mustang Shelby GT-H. If this tag-team raised your eyebrows, well, there’s some more surprising news. This isn’t the first time they’ve collaborated to create special rental cars. Their friendship dates back to 1966 when Shelby and Hertz created the GT350-H and the latter offered it to the public via a special program called ‘Rent-a-Racer’. That’s some history lesson for the day, huh?

What started out as a 1993 Ford Mustang Cobra was turned into a tire-smoking, drag strip weapon

A 1993 Ford Mustang SVT Cobra R is something of a collector’s car, which is why seeing heavily-modified examples like this one, is quite rare. However, the horsepower junkies at Addiction Motorsports don’t care about collecting cars, which is why they’ve turned the red ’93 Cobra into a one-of-a-kind, 1,700-horsepower dragstrip-slaying Foxbody Cobra.

This 4.6-liter all-motor Ford Mustang GT wants to be as quick as a modern Mustang GT as it challenges a C5 Corvette and a Dodge Viper GTS

The fifth-generation Ford Mustang is not the most admired American car. Granted, it was the first modern American car (after the Ford Thunderbird) to introduce the retro-futuristic design, but its 4.6-liter DOHC, three-valve V-8, although based on proven technology, left something to be desired on the performance front. Over the past few years, YouTuber Four Eyes has set out to turn a 2007 Ford Mustang GT into a proper performance machine – one that can run with Corvettes, modern Mustangs, and even Vipers.

Fox-Body Mustang SVO Vs Fox-Body Mustang Cobra R: How Much Horsepower Do They Really Make

Fox-Body Mustang SVO Vs Fox-Body Mustang Cobra R: How Much Horsepower Do They Really Make

These dyno tests of a 1986 Mustang SVO and a 1993 Mustang SVT Cobra R reveal their true horsepower figures, and one of them packs way more power than advertised

Knowing how much power a car makes is a good starting point, especially in times when carmakers seem to be throwing random or approximate numbers. Ford, among others, is a manufacturer known to underrate their high-performance vehicles, and Late Model Restoration helps us find the truth. We have talked about them previously when they tested a high-mileage Shelby GT500. Now, they are dyno-testing two very different versions of the Fox-Body Mustang – a 1986 SVO and a 1993 Cobra R. Here’s how much power they actually make.

While pure stock drag racing remains a popular class to this day, here’s taking a look at what it was like gunning it down the drag strip back in the 80s.

This video with its grainy lines and off-beat commentary, about two of the greatest names amongst muscle cars going head to head, sure does ring the nostalgia bell pretty hard. Strangely, the video has the correct aspect ratio of 16:9 rather than the 4:3 which was the norm back then.

Remember the Fast 6 Ford Mustang that got crushed by a tank? Well, it’s alive and kicking with all its 805 horsepower

When it comes to classic American muscle cars, the Ford Mustang is among the most iconic names in the history of fast American cars. The Mustang, like other iconic muscle cars, has been immortalized in cinema, and you may remember this particular example from the Fast 6. The 1969 Ford Mustang “Anvil” may be a movie star, but it’s not an “all-show, no-go” situation like with many movie cars. In fact, it’s quite the opposite.

This Mustang went under the digital hammer once and failed to sell, will it change owners this time around?

Outside of, say, the Shelby GT500, the Mustang Boss 429 – offered between 1969 and 1970 – is, arguably, the most desirable Mustangs on the planet. The 385-based 429 engine plays a big role in that status, but that’s only a part of what makes this specific car special. Wearing chassis stamp 0F02z109085 and Kar Kraft serial number KK2131, this Boss 429 is in pristine condition and still has the original engine under the hood.

Mustangs, especially of the classic variety are a hot ticket item for both collectors and those looking to start a new restoration project. Rarely do these two worlds collide, though, as we’re talking about two very different types of people….and vehicles. The 1967 Ford Mustang that we’re talking about today, however, might have some appeal to both sides because, while it might need some repairs here and there, it certainly looks as if it has withstood the test of time better than most cars left abandoned to rot in a garage.

Sam conducted another drag race, this time involving the Ford Mustang and the Infiniti Q60S, and uploaded the video on his YouTube channel, ‘Sam CarLegion’. This is an interesting mix because it involved a V-6 taking on a four-pot mill that churns out more power. However, the V-6-powered car comes with an all-wheel-drive system, unlike its rival that drives only the rear wheels. To make it even more interesting, they both weigh pretty much the same.

Not long ago, we shared with you what could be described as the worst modified Jaguar E-Type. While the Mustang is far easier on the eyes (or, at least, less disturbing), it would still cause some purists to fall off their chairs, as this classic pony car has been transformed into a one-of-a-kind, open-top speedster.

The Ford Mustang is no stranger to the big screen, with movies like “Gone in 60 Seconds” and “Bullitt” being the most memorable among many, many others. Bullitt was such a memorable film that Ford even designed a handful of special Mustangs that drew inspiration from the unmistakable Mustang in Bullitt. Now, we’ve learned, that Bullitt is coming back, but not in the way you think.

Sam CarLegion has uploaded many drag races videos on his YouTube channel so far. He has a ton of different cars already, but the standout star has been the discontinued Fusion Sport. The Fusion Sport has raced the Honda Accord, as well as a Ford Mustang in the past, and has humiliated both the cars.

Now, we have the next chapter of the Mustang vs Fusion rivalry. To spice things up, we’ve got the tuned versions of both these cars. The Fusion Sport makes a lot more power than the Mustang, but it’s also over 450 pounds heavier, which balances things out to an extent. Yet, the Mustang loses. Now, that’s humiliating.

The next Ford Mustang is going to be a hybrid, so, now is as good a time as any to celebrate the S550-generation as the last pure muscle car that Ford will give us. While you are probably tired of seeing high-horsepower builds from the U.S., this one comes from Britain and packs some serious power, with relatively simple mods, once again, showcasing the capabilities of the Coyote 5.0-liter V-8.

But we will settle with any other model year from the generation. So, it really hurts to see that someone did something like this to a poor 1966 Mustang. They chopped the roof altogether, transformed the Mustang into a Speedster, and then listed it on Bringatrailer.

All proceeds will benefit the Carroll Shelby Foundation and JDRF

The Shelby GT500KR was launched in December 2021 to honor Shelby American’s 60th anniversary.

The Kia Stinger GT is surprisingly capable with only a tune, but a 750-horsepower, ROUSH Ford Mustang GT has something to say about it

When the Kia Stinger came out in 2017, it changed many people’s perceptions of the Korean brand. It also turned out to be a very quick car that responds very well to minor modifications. With this in mind, YoUTube channel Sam CarLegion has arranged for a tuned Kia Stinger GT to show up on the drag strip. However, it’s not going to run by itself, as it is joined by a ROUSH-modified Ford Mustang GT.

After Losing To The Fusion, The Ford Mustang Now Gets Laughed Out Of The Room By A VW Jetta!

Over 100 horses fewer, but the Volkswagen Jetta still manages to beat the Ford Mustang

Sam from ‘Sam CarLegion’ uploaded yet another video of a drag race on YouTube, this time involving a Volkswagen Jetta and a Ford Mustang. Remember how the Mustang lost to the Fusion a few days back? Well, it seemed like retribution of sorts for the Mustang, but it didn’t go how the muscle car would’ve liked.

While both of them feature a four-pot turbocharged engine under the hood, the Mustang makes over 100 horsepower more than the Jetta. Also, the American muscle is a rear-wheel-drive model whereas the German sedan comes with a front-wheel-drive system. Despite everything going in favor of the Mustang, it lost to the Jetta when it came to real-world performance. Shocking, huh?

Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 by Lego Is The GT500 We Can All Afford

It comes with two pull-back motors and a little crank that transform it into a playable toy

In all reality, no matter how much we love the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500, its $72,900 starting price makes it not very affordable. But Lego is offering us a solution: a $49.90 kit that will at least give us the impression of owning a GT500. Of course, it only measures 10.5 inches and you also won’t be able to go from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.5 seconds, but it is still a start.

Ford Almost Gave Us a Mid-Engine Mustang BOSS 429 In 1969

A crazy, mid-engine Ford Mustang BOSS 429 existed and it almost went into production back in 1969

Performance versions of the Ford Mustang have always been sought-after, by collectors. We have models like the original Shelby GT350 R, Shelby GT500, or BOSS 302, but for many, the top of the cherry, the big daddy, is considered to be the BOSS 429. But for all its performance credentials, the BOSS 429 had weight-distribution issues, which is why, in 1969, Ford decided to experiment with a mid-engine version of the BOSS 429, dubbed the LID Mustang.

Ford announced the next-generation Mustang GT Gen3 Supercar at Mount Panorama, right before the 2021 Bathurst 1000. Both the Mustang Supercar and the Camaro did a series of display laps during the race before getting ready for an intense testing session throughout 2022.

The Ford Mustang has roots that run as deep as 1962 when Ford introduced a Mustang 1 two-seater concept that later, in 1963, evolved into the Mustang 2 four-seater concept. Then, finally, in the middle of 1964, Ford introduced the first-generation Mustang – this is the model that is usually called a 1964.5 Mustang because of its mid-year launch. The first-generation Mustang actually represented, at the time, Ford’s most successful vehicle launch since the Model A. The Mustang is one of the few cars that can be credited for kicking off the muscle car and pony car era and has, for most of its life, competed with the Chevy Camaro.

Since its introduction in 1964, the Ford Mustang has gone through five generational shifts, with the sixth-gen model being introduced in 2015. As with the generation before it, the sixth-gen Mustang is offered as both a coupe and a convertible and will, surprisingly, lend some of its design cues to an SUV-like EV known as the Mach-E. It is offered with just two engine choices after for dropped the 3.7-liter V-8 back in 2018. The entry-level engine is a 2.3-liter EcoBoost that delivers a cool 310 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. GT models are offered with Fords 5.0-liter V-8 that is good for 460 horsepower and 420 pound-feet of torque.

That’s not all that is offered from the Mustang, though, as there are two different Shelby models available with the Shelby GT350 being the lighter model and the GT500 being the car you really want. The GT350 is power by a 5.2-Liter flat-plane crank V-8 that delivers 526 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque. The same engine with the same output is found in the GT350R. Move up to the iconic GT500, though, and you’ll get the same flat-plane crank V-8 tuned to deliver 760 horsepower and 625 pound-feet of torque.

As of the time of this writing, the Ford Mustang starts out at $26,670 for the entry-level EcoBoost Fastback or $32,170 for the entry-level convertible. If you want a Shelby GT350 ,you’ll pay out $60,440, or you’ll pay out $72,900 for the GT500.
