Nope, not at all. I bought a Camaro SS because I like it...not because of what Ford does.

I'll still take mine to the track and I'll still race anything that lines up next to me...sometimes you win, sometimes you lose.

Not at all. This has been posted before by another rambling on about the next engine in the Mustang. I said it to him and will say it again now. Its all just hearsay and internet rumor. Ill believe it when I see it. I dont forsee 400hp in the Mustangs future. More hp...yep. 400...nope.

Any Chevy boy who cares enough to get spooked would know the LS3 has 10x the capability of anything Ford would put in the mustang.

Not me. I'm glad that Ford's finally taking a hint.

But I also think this whole arrangment will turn out different from what's expected. That article was about the F-150, and they mentioned the Mustang in passing. It might happen, just not the way some are expecting.

Okay, so here's the article:

I would just like to point out that this is a truck article with ONE sentence about a Mustang. The entire thing is speculation, it doesn't say anything about the 6.2 going into the mustang at all. Soooo let's just wait for Ford to say something instead of getting all excited over nothing, k?


"PickupTrucks.com is reporting that by the end of 2010, Ford will alter the three engine options that currently make up the engine choices in the F-150. What is coming in time for the 2011 model year will be a new 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 and a 5.0-liter V8 code-named "Coyote."

Subbing the V6 EcoBoost for the V8 is about providing the same power with more efficiency. Said to be the premium engine for light-duty trucks, the direct-injection gas engine will offer something like 400 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque while carrying an EPA rating of "at least 23 miles-per-gallon on the highway." Those power numbers handily beat what you'll get from any of the current engines on offer, even though it's down two cylinders.

The "Coyote" 5.0-liter, modular, four-valve V8 will have "huge heads," and will return the same numbers as the V6: 400 hp and 400 lb-ft. This engine will become the standard F-150 lump, returning the same gas mileage as the current 5.4-liter but with much more power. This same engine will also reportedly find its way into the Mustang. That will leave the 6.2-liter V8 (the Boss) slated for the Raptor later this year as last engine choice (unless there's a 4-cylinder EcoBoost added in 2013), and it will go into special edition F-150s and the Super Duty trucks."

I bolded the one sentence about the Mustang.

Ford wont build a mustang with more power/quality for less $$ . The GT500 is evidence of that.

SVT's name is still on the car.

Ford Responds...

Wonder if it will make its way up to 427 hp....

It appears that the 'shot over the bow' with the Camaro is drawing a response...let the HP wars continue!
