Ford has an early gift for performance enthusiasts this holiday season. Horsepower numbers are official for the seventh generation Mustang, and as expected, the new Dark Horse model leads the way with even 500 horsepower. However, the GT is not far behind with an official power of 480 hp. With the optional exhaust upgrade, power goes up to 486 ponies.
“Mustang always pushes the envelope,” said Ford Mustang Chief Engineer Ed Krenz. “From the Mustang GT to the Dark Horse, this is our ultimate 5.0-liter V8. It’s naturally aspirated power. And Mustang EcoBoost fans also get a power boost to make every Mustang more fun and immersive to drive.”
This is a breakthrough story. More information will be added as it becomes available.
