Post 2011 Ford Mustang GT and 5.0-liter V8 unwrapped early



Thanks to some embargo breaking that’s already occurred, we’ve known for a week that the 2011 Ford Mustang GT would pack a brand new 5.0-liter V8 producing 412 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. We thought those tidbits might hold over the internet ’till the official embargo date lifts early next week, but we were wrong and therefore are still awake at 1:30 AM on Christmas morning writing this post. Thanks to Jalopnik via MustangHeaven via BurlappCars, we have the first images of the 2011 Mustang GT and its new 5.0-liter V8.

You can read more about some of the engine’s details that have already leaked here, but let’s just take a look see at what we’ve got. Kudos to Ford for leaving the engine’s tippy top unadorned and we also dig those 5.0 badges on the engine and fenders. Nostalgia FTW

I guess the automaker finally listen to the loyal followers of the 5.0 and brought it back.....smart choice.

Bad comparision. Chryslers 3.5 would be considered a "redesign", same thing what happened to the 4.7L for 2008.

This would be "all new", and so far from the original that it's for the best. Same with HEMI vs HEMI...same in name, but totally different.

BTW 93 3.5L FTW!
