Ford Talks Horsepower and Torque For 2015 Mustang
Ranges from 300 to 435 Horsepower
Since the 2015 Ford Mustang was shown late last year, the automaker has been very quiet on how much power their engines make. Recently, the blue oval finally decided to spill the beans with the revelation of horsepower and torque figures for all three engines.
Originally, Ford ballparked figures of more than 305 horsepower for the new 2.7L EcoBoost turbo-four and more than 420 horsepower for the 5.0L V8 engine. The official numbers aren't too far off. The new 2.7 EcoBoost produces 310 horsepower and 320 pound-feet of torque. The 5.0L V8 makes an impressive 435 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque.
The base 3.7L V6 sees a slight decrease in power for the 2015 model. Originally making 305 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque, the 3.7 now makes 300 horsepower and 280 pound-feet of torque. The reduction in horsepower is to most likely give the EcoBoost some breathing room.
