Some reports suggest that this new 5.0L unit could also eventually spawn a modern version of the original Boss 302 in a limited edition Mustang GT with power up around the 350hp level. A smaller 4.6L V8 should also be available. This will be the same unit as found in the current Bullitt-edition cars. Developed using parts from Ford Racing Technology, the Bullitt version features a 315hp 4.6L V8 engine with 440Nm (325lb-ft) of torque.
Ford’s iconic Mustang is only due for an update next year but it appears developers will be completely revising the powertrain lineup in addition to tweaking the car’s sheet metal.
