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!

Drag Battle: Kia Stinger GT With a Tune Messes With a ROUSH Ford Mustang GT

Drag Battle: Kia Stinger GT With a Tune Messes With a ROUSH Ford Mustang GT

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!

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?

Watch three cars with very different dynamics go up against each other on the drag strip

The ‘Carwow’ team created a nice ensemble of three cars with very different dynamics. First up, there’s the Porsche Cayman GT4 that features a naturally aspirated flat-six and a manual gearbox. Then there’s a Cayman 718 with a smaller turbocharged four-cylinder mill, but paired to an automatic gearbox. And, then there’s a powerful naturally-but-heavy aspirated V-8 from the Ford Mustang Mach 1, also with a manual gearbox. Which car do you think has the higher chances of winning here?

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.

For better or worse, this also extends to some iconic names like the Ford Mustang. With the latest information, from a Ford engineer, we have good reason to believe that the current, S550 generation of the pony car will be the last non-hybrid model.

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.

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.

The M3, on the other hand, makes a little over 500 horsepower. Which car do you think will claim the bragging rights this time?

This 1969 Ford Mustang Started Life as a Hyundai Accent

Lusting after a 1969 Ford Mustang, but can’t afford one? Dream Customs India has got your back with this Hyundai Accent conversion

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. The Indian studio has taken a 2009 Hyundai Accent – a fairly modern economy car - and turned it into a somewhat convincing clone of the 1969 Pony car. We’ll let you be the judge.

2021 Ford Mustang Legend Edition by Hennessey

2021 Ford Mustang Legend Edition by Hennessey

From deep within the bowels of Hennessey comes a very unexpected project that involves a 2021 Ford Mustang, the black and white color scheme of the Le Mans-winning Ford GT40 of 1966, and 808 horsepower of full-on, all-American muscle. Okay, maybe I’m over-selling it a little bit, as it is essentially just a rehash of Hennessey’s Heritage Edition from 2018 with a different color. But hey, this is Top Speed, and we love go-fast cars – this Mustang is certainly that, and I want to tell you a little more about it.

Do We Have A Shelby Bronco On The Horizon?

Do We Have A Shelby Bronco On The Horizon?

If this video is to go by anything, a Shelby Bronco could very well be on the cards!

The Bronco Nation uploaded a video of a 2021 Ford Bronco taking on the 2021 Shelby GT500 SE on a race track on its YouTube channel. The Shelby GT500 SE was piloted by Shelby American’s CEO, Gary Patterson, whereas, Shelby Hall, a rising off-road racer, was behind the wheel of the Bronco. While the race was arbitrary, it was all about the wordplay here and the last few seconds that hinted at a Shelby Bronco being in the works. The details are scarce at this point, but this 90-odd second video has stirred the pot!

This Bugatti-Powered Ford Mustang Is Freaky Cool, But Crowds Better Watch Out

This "Stock" Mustang GT Can Give The Veyron a Run For Its Money

The Mustang has always been one of the most talked-about cars on the internet. Whether because of its movie stardom, relative affordability, performance versions, being a crowd magnet, or simply because it’s in the hands of people who can’t drive and crash, the Mustang is one of the most celebrated cars in automotive history. Its 5.0-liter Coyote V-8 is also capable of a very solid 460 horsepower and 390 pound-feet (530 Nm). For 2020, the GT’s V-8 received dual fuel injection, revised intake runners, and larger valves, making it even more tuner-friendly. YouTube channel “Palm Beach Dyno” shows us exactly that.

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.
