The sport coupe market has just received a V8 upgrade - with Ford unveiling its 2018 Mustang GT to Kirkland. This platform promises class-leading power with every mile, boasting a newly tuned engine that will decimate the competition.
Get ready for the ultimate pony ride.
According the Road and Track, the 2018 Mustang GT dominates every rev - with its 5.0L V8 yielding 460 HP and 420 lb.-ft of torque. This leaves all competitors in the dust, including its 2017 predecessor (which generated only 435 HP and 400 lb.-ft of torque). The redline has been raised to 7,500 RPM to ensure sport-tuned thrills.
How did Ford achieve such a powerful output? It carefully calibrated the GT’s engine, fusing it with a series of advanced technologies to increase intake levels and optimize fuel. Direct and port injection systems combine to precisely balance resource distribution, creating a steady performance-band; while the valves have been enlarged to promote increased air-flow. Plasma-coated cylinders move smoothly with every rev, effortlessly enduring the intense friction of the redline; and aluminum parts deliver a lightweight design to lessen overall strain. This pony was engineered to run.
