Oh well then what’s the difference? Just new packaging?I doubt this is new news to anyone here but according to Ford Authority, the S650 will launch with the current EcoBoost 2.3L and the Coyote 5.0L.

Well, according to FA the Coyote will be a "carryover" engine, meaning 450hp or 470 if it's based on the Mach 1. Honestly, I think that's very likely going to happen. The Coyote does not have that much left in it and around 500hp are somewhat what can be achieved without any superchargers.Pretty much as expected.
However, I'd also expect a Gen 4 Coyote. Some north of 475hp for a base GT would be nice to see.
that's 98% of what that site posts. I laugh at the "looking for editor/contributors" you see from time to time. For what? Write a script that scrapes random paragraphs from previous content and post it every 2 or 3 days just so the RSS feed says there is something new.The article seemed to just exist to put out an article.
It's a possibility for sure, the HP hit in 2022 may be writing on the wall. If it happens, it better perform better, because casuals will see the number and talk negatively immediately.Is there any possibility the next GT/[specialty model] makes even less horsepower and torque figures (down to let's say 440/460HP for this example) on paper to meet tightening regulations, but then actually performs on par if not faster in real life?
So there's still hope for a hybrid and/or AWD version of the Mustang that isn't a Mach E...probably not at launch, but perhaps 2-3 years afterwards at the earliest or near the end of the S650 generation at the absolute latest.that's 98% of what that site posts.

with the 3.73 rear gears that can be done in 1st or 2nd. With 3.55 you need the A10's lower gearing or just get used to using 1st gear a bit more than you might be inclined to.I just want to make sure that it has plenty of power on the low-end of the RPM spectrum if I need to do a left turn from a stop sign in to a main road where the traffic flow doesn't have stop signs (if that makes sense). That, and not struggling on the highway while driving on any upward incline.
Great thread. I know I've said this before on here, but I'll say it again. The last Mustang I purchased was used. I didn't buy new because the new cars didn't seem better than a 2017. I don't like the manual transmission gearing changes, I don't like the spray cylinder liners, I'm not a big fan of direct injection.I'd have thought......or hoped, the hybrid tech would keep the V8 around in markets where it'd be tough without it (mainly Europe).
But if Ford want some feedback, then lets give it to them!
Please Ford, keep the V8 around for the 7th AND 8th Gen Mustangs!!
This really bums me out. Why would I buy an S650 if it still has the same engines? I guess I'll just cross my fingers that Ford will do something to make it better than the S550.
Yes I agree.the car guys at ford need to start figuring out how to beat the flower children in the boardroom.
in this day and age, auto manufacturers (and Ford in particular) should just license each other their engines and be done with it.AMG runs almost 600 HP out of their 4 liter V8TT in base spec and with 20 grams less emissions than the current 5 liter Coyote. And it sounds like frikkin thunder and lightning too.
