The Mustang will reportedly be offered with a hybrid V8 engine. Rumors claim that the next-generation Mustang is codenamed S650 (the current car is the S550) and will follow the template set by the current generation car with right-hand drive and left-hand drive versions. The S550 Mustang was the first Mustang in history to be produced in a right-hand-drive version from the factory and a traditional left-hand-drive... Read more...
Ford isn’t a stranger to electric vehicles; after all, the company did make available an electric version of its Focus compact hatchback. However, the company hasn’t been as aggressive with its electrification efforts aside for some hybrids here and there.

The Mustang influence is once again very noticeable... Read more...
When most people think about the Ford Mustang, they imagine a rear-wheel drive beast powered by a thumping V8 engine. However, in recent years Ford has reintroduced a turbocharged four-cylinder to the lineup and it is by no means a slouch in the performance arena.

To put that in perspective, the 2010 Mustang GT with its 4.6-liter V8 engine produced 315 horsepower and 325 lb-ft of torque. In addition to the enhancements... Read more...
Ford Mustangs are known for offering a lot of performance for a semi-reasonable price. However, the newest member of the Mustang family is about to offer a whole lot of performance at a price that will likely start at around $75,000 or more.

Ford has announced that it has hit a milestone for the first Pony car, the Mustang. The 10 millionth Ford Mustang rolled off the assembly line this week at the Flat Rock Assembly Plant in Michigan. The Mustang is hailed as the best-selling sports car in the last 50 years in America, and has been the world's best-selling sports car for three years in a row. The special 10 millionth car was as close to the very first Mustang that rolled off the assembly line as possible. That means the record-setting ride is a 2019 Wimbledon White GT V8 6-speed manual convertible. The 2019 Mustang is powered by a 460hp 5.0L V8 and Ford says that it was fitted with all the latest driver assist technology. The... Read more...
