2.3L EcoBoost®

Exhilarating power combined with efficiency that performance drivers will call icing on the
cake with 310 hp1 and 320 lb.-ft. of torque.Mustang ecoboost And best-in-class EPA-estimated 21 city/32
hwy/25 combined mpgMustang ecoboost2. A new optimally sized twin-scroll turbocharger separates the
exhaust runners in two chambers that run all the way to the turbine. This transfers high-pulse
energy to the turbine wheel, resulting in ultra-fast time-to-torque. If that sounds too
technical, don’t worry - you’ll understand when your foot presses the gas. To put the numbers
in perspective, consider this: This new EcoBoost engine has more horsepower with only half
the displacement of the 2005 Mustang GT 4.6L V8. That’s incredible progress in just 10 years.

Electronic Line Lock

Electronic Line Lock

Electronic Line-Lock, standard on Mustang GT, is the first feature of its kind in the industry,
and the perfect tool for Mustang owners who love to test their skills at the track. Mustang linelockElectronic
Line-Lock keeps the front brakes locked while releasing the rear brakes, letting you then apply
the accelerator to spin and warm up the rear tires to enhance grip. You won’t have to balance
one foot on the brake and the other on the gas or install a mechanical line lock. With the tires
properly warmed up, drivers can pull up to the staging line, engage the launch controlMustang linelock-2 and
catapult off the line when the light turns green.

5.0L GT

5.0L GT

From the deep, guttural rumble at idle, to the wide-eyed force of torque in acceleration, the
available 5.0L Ti-VCT V8 engine is the stuff of Mustang legend. And this year, it’s even more
powerful with 435Mustang ecoboost hp and 400 lb.-ft. of torque.* The advanced engine is intended to
maximize power generation from every compression, with larger intake and exhaust valves,
new cylinder heads with revised high-flow ports and new intake and exhaust camshafts with
increased lift.

Shelby GT350®

Shelby GT350®

Built to buckle the pavement.

• Enhanced powertrain
The heart and soul of this beast live in the 5.2L V8 engine with a flat-plane crank that
produces over 526 horsepower. Bolted to a world-class TREMEC® 3160 6-speed manual
transmission and you end up producing more than 429 lb.-ft. of torque.

• Chassis and suspension
The MagneRide™ damping system monitors and adjusts itself thousands of times per
second for a dynamic, adrenaline-fueled driving experience. But with our obsession for detail,
we just couldn’t stop there. Our attention to detail drove us all the way down to which way
the springs coiled, therefore requiring new lower control arms. This racer was designed,
engineered and built so the springs, sway bars and dampers work together as one finely
tuned system. We also added new lightweight chassis components and a set of Michelin®
Pilot® Super Sport tires wrapped around lightweight, yet incredibly stiff, aluminum wheels.
So yeah, the GT350 will deliver a special rush whenever you strap yourself in behind the
wheel.

• Braking
The foundation of any sports car is undoubtedly the brakes; therefore, brakes are a major part
of the GT350 magic. So we teamed front and rear Brembo® with cross-drilled, two-piece,
highly-engineered brake rotors. The huge 395mm (15.5”) rotors up front and 376mm (14.8”)
rotors in the back complete this tight, hard working system that gives GT350 its well-earned
track cred.

• Aerodynamics
Balancing downforce with aerodynamic drag is always one of the biggest challenges a team
of car designers can face. But Ford did it with a unique, detailed approach that centered on
making it imperative that every single component play a major part in the total overall
performance of the system. It’s a very hard thing to pull off, but our team
of designers and engineers wouldn’t settle for less. So it’s not just that the GT350
has wider aluminum front fenders and a unique aluminum hood. It’s also that
the front and rear fascias, splitter, rockers and rear valance with integrated diffuser all
work together as a team – each and every one of them. And only as
a team working together can this system keep the beautiful, powerful, exciting and
intimidating GT350 racer pressed firmly to the track.

3.7L V6

3.7L V6

The 3.7L V6 was the first engine to introduce twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT)
technology to the Mustang lineup. This throaty six-cylinder produces 300 hp and 280
lb.-ft. of torque. But what’s equally impressive is its EPA-estimated 19 city/28 hwy/22 combined mpgMustang Combined MPG.
Ti-VCT provides precise timing and control of the engine’s air and fuel
intake and exhaust output. It helps enhance peak power, low-speed torque in driving
situations like passing and merging, and helps optimize efficiency and cold-start operation.
