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!

Ford Mustang GT and Mach 1 to lose 10 horsepower for 2022

Ford Mustang GT and Mach 1 to lose 10 horsepower for 2022

Stricter emissions regulations, specifically the Low Emission Vehicle (LEV III) regulations, have forced the blue oval brand to reduce the performance of the Mustang GT and Mach 1.

Politicians around the world are doubling down on their commitment to reducing carbon dioxide emissions. The United States is no exception, and this trend will definitely continue until we’ve achieved carbon neutrality or zero emissions. As the world heads toward this eco-conscious future, high-performance sports cars and supercars with gas-guzzling internal combustion engines (ICE) could soon be a relic of the past. The effect of these ever-stricter emission standards has led Ford to make performance changes to the Mustang GT and Mach 1.

How much Power is lost after 182,217 miles? This Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 gives the Answer

When owning a performance car, every bit of horsepower counts. That said, over time, wear and tear takes its toll on performance and some of those horses run away. Of course, it mainly depends on how the engine has been treated, both in terms of driving and maintenance. Mileage also takes its toll on the mechanical components of a car. But just how much power (if any) is lost over time? This “tired” Mustang Shelby GT500 answers that.

Drag Race: Can The Mustang GT Convertible Take On The GR Supra?

The Toyota GR Supra is a Capable car, but can It stand up to a V-8 Mustang GT automatic?

The Toyota GR Supra is one of the most controversial vehicles of our time because of what it’s based on. Regardless of the platform it’s based on, one thing was made clear: the GR Supra is a very capable performance car. With a BMW-derived (but Toyota-improved) 3.0-liter, turbocharged, inline-six that makes 382 horsepower and 368 pound-feet (499 Nm) and a quick-shifting, ZF eight-speed automatic, it manages a 0 to 60 mph sprint in 3.9 seconds. However, a Mustang GT with a 10-speed auto steps up to challenge the GR Supra.

He was, however, able to modify the Ford Mustang Mach 1 so it can now develop a total of 767 horsepower. If you are not impressed, keep in mind that this is almost 300 horsepower more than the standard Mustang Mach 1.

After obliterating the likes of the GT-R, the Taycan Turbo S, and most recently, the Dodge Demon, the Tesla Model S Plaid faced its next challenger (or should we say, its next ‘victim’?) in the form of a tuned Ford Mustang GT500. The Mustang puts out 1,200 horses; almost 200 ponies more than its electric rival. Just like the Tesla, this Mustang is also a sub-10-second car.

Many car enthusiasts lust after a high-performance supercar or a classic muscle car. Sadly, both are out of most people’s reach. This, in turn, creates a market niche for studios specializing in building replicas. After showing us their Honda Civic-based Lamborghini Aventador project, Dream Customs India is now showing us something even more bizarre. I’m sure you’re familiar with the 1969 Ford Mustang – a car that has achieved global stardom.

Its 5.0-liter Coyote V-8 is also capable of a very solid 460 horsepower and 390 pound-feet (530 Nm).

On the other hand, it seems that this bundle makes the GT500 slower in a straight line. So if you’re planning to race your GT500 at the drag strip, save yourself $18,500 and stay away from the Carbon Fiber Track Pack.

This Supercharged Terminator Ford Mustang Is Not For the Faint Hearted

This fourth-generation Ford Mustang Cobra packs as much punch as the 2020 Shelby GT500

The fourth-generation Mustang wasn’t exactly a looker when it first broke cover in 1993, but Ford fixed that with the "New Edge" redesign in late 1998. More importantly, Ford rolled out a new SVT Cobra model, while the Cobra R made a comeback for 2000 with 385 horsepower and 385 pound-feet of torque. But the Cobra R wasn’t the ultimate fourth-gen Mustang.

In 2003, Ford and SVT unveiled the Terminator Cobra. Powered by a supercharged 4.6-liter engine instead of the Cobra’s 5.4-liter V-8, the Terminator came with 390 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque on tap, along with unique design features and updates. A notable output back in 2003, 390 horsepower doesn’t seem that spectacular in 2020, but someone noticed the Terminator’s potential and turned it into an even more menacing beast.

Muscle Meets Sexy as the Shelby GT500 Dukes it Out with a BMW M8 Competition

Muscle Meets Sexy as the Shelby GT500 Dukes it Out with a BMW M8 Competition

In a race between high-powered sports coupes, only one will be crowned the winner

The Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 and the BMW M8 Competition are two of the fiercest sports coupes in the market. They’re also completely different from one another in ways that are obvious. One is an American muscle car that’s more than willing to chop anyone’s head of with brute force and power. The other is a German rocket brimming with premium bits and pieces. One is also far more expensive than the other, which we’ll set aside in favor of a more pressing question: which of these two sports coupes would win in a drag race? Our friends from Edmunds sought an answer and the results will surprise you.

Throwback: 2006 Ford Shelby GT500 "Germany" Commercial

Throwback: 2006 Ford Shelby GT500 "Germany" Commercial

Go back in time and watch one of Ford’s greatest commercials

2006 seems like forever ago, doesn’t it? At the very least, it feels like a different lifetime. Social media was still in its infancy and the world felt a lot bigger back then. 2006 was also a big year for Ford. The Blue Oval was bringing the Shelby Mustang back to life after a 25-year absence. Ford went all-out in marketing the return of the Shelby nameplate, and one commercial, in particular, effectively hammered Ford’s point. The Shelby Mustang was a beast, and there really was just one road in the world that could have a proper dance with it: the German Autobahn.

The ad, called “Germany,” puts the spotlight squarely on the 2006 Shelby Mustang GT500 and what it could do on a stretch of road that didn’t have any speed limits. It’s a fascinating commercial to look back on given that the Shelby Mustang is now deep into its third generation.

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.
