2010 Mustang Could Get 5.0L V8 Engine

2010 Mustang Could Get 5.0L V8 Engine In an interview with stuff.co.nz, Bill Osborne, President of Ford Australia, claims that Ford is considering using a 5.0L SOHC V8 for the upcoming Mustang in replacement of the previous 4.6L unit. Hopefullly Mustang owners will once again be able to buy the famed 5.0L Mustang, even if it isn’t the old pushrod engine.

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.
