With Selectable Drive Modes, Electronic Line-Lock and Launch Control capability, it’s no wonder the 2017 Ford Mustang stands out against the competition.
Four engines. One soul.
Fasten your seatbelts. Each engine delivers at least 300 horsepower. The 3.7L V6 offers up 300 hp and 280 lb.-ft. of torque, standard on V6 Fastback model. The 2.3L EcoBoost® engines churns out 310 hp* and 320 lb.-ft. of torque,* standard on EcoBoost© and EcoBoost Premium models. The 5.0L V8 kicks out 435 hp* and 400 lb.-ft. of torque,* standard on GT and GT Premium models. And the 5.2L V8 delivers 526 hp and 429 lb.-ft. of torque, standard on the Shelby GT350©
From the deep, guttural rumble at idle to the wide-eyed force of torque in acceleration, this engine is all about performance. It delivers 435 horsepower* and 400 lb.-ft. of torque* – that’s increased horsepower and torque vs. the fifth-generation vehicle. The engine is intended to maximize power generation from every compression, with large intake and exhaust valves, cylinder heads that feature high-flow ports and intake and exhaust camshafts that have impressive lift. And the icing on the cake – the 5.0L exhaust delivers a powerful acoustic experience.
The 3.7L V6 has twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) technology and delivers 300 hp and 280 lb.-ft. of torque. Equally impressive is its EPA-estimated rating of 18 city/27 hwy/21 combined mpg.* Ti-VCT provides precise timing and control of the engine’s air and fuel intake and exhaust output. It helps enhance peak power, low-speed torque in driving situations like passing and merging, and helps optimize efficiency and cold-start operation.
The 2.3L EcoBoost engine delivers 310 hp* and 320 lb.-ft. of torque.* An optimally sized twin-scroll turbocharger separates the exhaust runners in two chambers that run all the way to the turbine. This transfers high-pulse energy to the turbine wheel, resulting in ultrafast time-to-torque. If all this sounds too technical, simply give ’er the gas and enjoy the quick response.
