Ford’s 2018 Mustang GT is not only the most powerful and technologically advanced, it is also the fastest ever! The new Mustang GT is capable of a 0-60 mph time in a neck-snapping 4 seconds!
“Typically, when you shift gears, you give up time,” said Widmann. “In Drag Strip mode, the engine torque doesn’t drop when you’re shifting. You get peak engine torque and horsepower straight through thanks to our new Ford-built 10-speed transmission.”
The car’s 5.0-liter V8 now features dual-fuel, high-pressure direct injection and low-pressure port fuel injection technology for increased power and efficiency. The engine’s 460 horsepower and 420 lb.-ft. of torque represent improvements over the current model’s 435 horsepower and 400 lb.-ft. The result is an engine that delivers robust low-end torque, high-rpm power and improved fuel efficiency.
The 2018 Mustang GTs will begin arriving in dealer showrooms in the fall. In the meantime, learn more here.
