Rumor most likely, ford will probably keep the new 5.0 for another 10ish years. Like they did the 4.6L. But that's just my thoughts.

I think you're right about keeping the 5.0, but I still think there's more they can do to get every last ounce of power out of it. Direct injection for starters

I think it would be cool if they took the BOSS motor and dropped it down to the GT level, but with direct injection!.. And then up the displacement for the BOSS from a 5.0 to a 5.4, also with direct injection!... Give the GT 450+HP and the BOSS 500+ hp!.. All this with a newer, lighter, and better platform!...

You can't water down the GT. the entry level is a 4 or 6 or ecoboost.

Okay well how about the mustang sport edition then. The ecoboost can be a base model it costs too much to make.

Re: 2014 50th Redesign? What do you think?

I wouldn't be surprised to see a very European influenced Mustang as all the current Ford lineup is seeing the same thing. That means the car will def see the likes of similarities b/w Aston Martin, Volvo, Audi, ect ect. You can't forget that Ford's European and Asian business is booming in it's own way and has already had a profound effect on our current American market.

I also think that it's won't be long before we see the ideas of an ECOboost Mustang from Ford and what direction they think they can take with the models. The Cafe standards and clean air acts are getting extremely tougher through the years and this engine may possibly help in that category. I understand it's still an E10 vehicle but don't be surprised to see a flex fuel version or some other modification of that in the near future. Direct Injection shows very promising results in this category. Ford has a tough battle to face with emissions and efficiency. (Although efficiency does help along the lines of performance in it's own way)

I have a feeling that for the true bleeding blue that you won't have a hard time falling in love with whatever the models to come offer. Seriously, think about it... The Camaro is completely different and modern but similar in it's own way. Chevy after almost 8 years managed enough brilliance to catch new crowds of attention and keep a good portion of it's previous prideful redneck persona. Do you think that the best designers in the world (that usually work with all the manufacturing companies - or atleast most - on all types of different projects) will let you down after 50 years? NO. Of course some of you will be disappointed b/c it doesn't fly, transform, talk to you, change it's own oil, or doesn't have a flux capacitor from Back to the Future.. but that's all part of it.

I think we'll see the same engines we do now. They are all new and don't need to be changed. Maybe a little tweek here and there but nothing drastic. I think the only engines that could be added would be an ecoboost 4 with a return of the svo, or the current ecoboost 3.5. I don't see a need to add anything more then that.

The 3.7 is a premium engine to Ford though so i wouldnt be suprised to see a 3.5 na base motor put into play with the new mustang dropping lbs it would still be on par with the camaro. If it werent for the camaro you bet your daddys britches we'd have a 250 hp 3.5 base motor because Ford would have less competition. So thank you chevy!!! Lol

Idk. I don't see much of a point of adding another NA 6. Maybe the ecoboost 3.5 as a special edition V6. I still think the more likely option would be the turbo 4 with the SVO. Especially since they want to make the Mustang smaller and lighter and have a base with even better fuel economy. Not to mention how many more customers Ford would get with a RWD turbo 4 to compete against cars like the BRZ, FRS, miatas, etc.. I just see it as the best option for Ford to get new customers and that's gotta be there #1 agenda.

IMHO the turbo 4 would only hurt the mustang. The mustang weighs wayy way too much to compete with the brz miata fr-s or even the genesis turbo 4. Ford would have to make a new car for that kind of competition. The mustang is known for being a muscle car and wouldnt sell well with a 4 cylinder anything.

The current design yes. But from what I've heard the next stang is going to be smaller and lighter. If that is true then a turbo 4 would work fine. It won't be as small as those cars I mentioned but think it would compete with sales of those cars, as long as the price starts under or right around $20k. I've read up a bit on the forums of the brz/frs, and I know quite a few we're disappointed with the price and would rather go with cars like the stang, camaro, and genesis for the price. So a smaller, lighter, cheaper stang with a turbo 4 would sell imo.

Again, nothing too tacky, just simple Mustang design elements but with a much needed modern twist. As I stated before, fit & finish (read quality) as well as handling will be world class. Keep the faith and stay tuned...
They should redesign the 99-04 "New Edge" body style. It could have that Mustang look from before it was all retro. And the new edge look would be awesome with a big 5.0 4v lol

We may see 3 engines an ECO boost 4 cyl base , 3.7L pony package, and 5.0 GT. Or what about an ECOBOOST V8? I don't think they will take the V8 anytime soon.

Would love to see the Shelby name go away and see SVT Cobras again. In my mind the cobra is meaner and not as flashy. But maybe that's just me

There is nothing in fords contracts that require them to build shelby mustangs. I hope they axe the shelby and start producing svt cobras again because there is no license fee built into the cost for using the shelby name.


Expect a svo, ecoboost 2.0 or 2.3 producing 300-330 hp, a direct injection version of the current engines 3.7 ~ 350hp, 5.0 ~ 465-500hp, A possible 351 boss or similar special edition to capitalize on the new 5.8 engine. And a continuation of the 5.8sc engine with a minor hp bump. I expect better transmissions, a flappy paddle system available, and more gears. Ford had filed patents for 6,7 and 8 speed dual clutch boxes and a 7 speed manual box. The new design its rumored to eliminate up to 450lbs. As for design, I expect serious euro influence, think jaguar xj flexing crossed with a v8 vantage.

Ford has a contract with Shelby to build the GT500!.. Hence the reason why everything in that car is from Ford!.. Not to mention the fact that Ford already stated that they will continue to build the Shelby for some time, using the current retro model after the redesign has been released!.. That is why you won't see a Eco Boost V8!... Because yes, Ford then would have a car that is in direct competition with itself!...

Besides that, why build and sell some thing for less?... When you can build and sell some thing for more and sell just as many?...

2014 Mustang II
1.2 quad-turbo four
