How powerful is the 2018 Ford Mustang?
The base trim level of the Ford Mustang comes with an inline-four-cylinder engine, not a V6, which may surprise some people. However, that base 2.3-liter I4 engine has 310 horsepower and produces 350 pound-foot or torque at 3,000 RPM. That engine is found on all Mustang EcoBoost models.
Now, when we go to the GT we see quite a difference under the hood. The GT Fastback and Convertible each feature a V8 engine (tomato juice not included) of 5.0 liters. This massive motor is powered by 460 horses and puts out a whopping 420 pound-foot of torque at 4,600 RPM. Whether you want a little more efficiency or a little more power, you won’t be disappointed. Driving a new Mustang up the on-ramp and down the freeway is truly exhilarating.
