5.0L V8 could return in 2010 Mustang

The pressure is on now for Ford, which has had the ponycar market to itself for the better part of a decade. With the return of the Chevy Camaro and Dodge Challenger, Ford will surely be stepping up the Mustang's performance when it receives a makeover for 2010. In an interview with stuff.co.nz, Bill Osborne, President of Ford Australia, claims that Ford is considering using a 5.0L V8 for the new Falcon - the same engine being developed for the upcoming Mustang. While nothing has been officially confirmed by Ford, this is further evidence that the 5.0 will be making a return since it was dropped from the Mustang back in 1995.

Assuming the 5.0 V8 will be available for the 2010 Mustang, there are many questions that still remain. It's possible the 5.0 could become standard, but it could also be reserved for use in a special edition Mustang like a Boss or Mach 1. There is also the question of how the engine is being developed. The simplest answer is that it will be based on the current modular V8 architecture and could be a stroked version of the 4.6L V8.

We would love to see something similar to the 5.0 V8 in the Saleen Parnelli Jones Limited Edition Mustang that we sampled last year. With 400 bhp and 390 lb-ft of torque, it was a smooth and powerful engine that suited the Mustang well.

That's good for them. It still won't beat a Camaro, though.

Ah, so Ford brings out the big 5.0L to compete with the 5.7 in the Challenger and the 6.? Camaro. Wonder why they just don't use the 5.4 that they are using their GT500's, minus the supercharger and such. Its not as if it won't fit.

Good to see more healthy V8 competition.

Now if they'd just update the live rear-axle.

I'm not going to lie; I like the throw-back feeling of the live axle. But if we want GM to continue to view the Stang as competition (and thus continue to improve the Camaro) I think Ford needs to update it.

Besides, the better a muscle car is, the better for all of us...it makes the imports look that much less appealing.

I just wanna know what I'm up against at the stoplights while cruising to the beach...

If you know it's close, check the driver weight, and bang them gears hard.

They're gonna be waiting for us you know!?!

Don't be caught off guard -show'em who's boss again.

I think it has to do with the icon that was the 5.0 Liter Mustang. Not since we switched from stardard to metric displacement figures have u really ever heard a lot of ppl referring to car models based on the displacement in liters. For example, not many ppl would ever say i drive a 5.7 liter (4th gen f-body)...but ppl did say '5 liter' (mustang), because it sounds good. For that reason I think Ford should make it 5.0 and not the 5.4 to bring back the icon.
