Beneath the muscular lines of the power-dome hood introduced last year, the 2011 Mustang will have an all-new 3.7 liter Ti-VCT (Twin independent Variable Camshaft Timing) V-6 engine and one of two available 6-speed transmissions. While the engine it replaces had a larger volume displacement (4.0 liters), the new one delivers better performance and efficiency: 305 horsepower, 280 foot-pounds of torque and a projected 31 hwy mph – no other vehicle in the industry can beat this combination in a V-6. The Mustang V-6 engine offers enhanced features such as cold-air induction, dual exhaust, and a die-cast aluminum deep sump oil pan for 10,000 mile oil change intervals. Additionally, the V-6 Mustang offers these handling upgrades for 2011: Electric Power-Assisted Steering (EPAS), limited-slip differential, larger brakes (from the 2010 GT), new rear lower control arms, stiffened rear stabilizer bar bushings, enhanced stabilizer bar and spring rates, and retuned struts and shocks.
Mustang drivers looking for more power will appreciate the all-new 5.0 liter Ti-VCT V-8 engine, with a 6-speed transmission and 412 horsepower. It marks the fitting return of the 5.0 badge. And fans of Ford’s top pony get a bonus too, in the form of a new aluminum-block 5.4 liter SC V-8 for the GT500, which delivers a whopping 550 horsepower. All this rides on the foundation of retuned shocks from the 2010 Mustang model, boosting performance across the board. There are new wheel options available on the 2011 Mustang as well.
Inside, the available SYNC infotainment hub highlights the flowing center stack. The V-6 Mustang’s interior also boasts of such features as new cluster graphics (featuring 160 mph speedometer/8000 rpm tachometer), Message Center, integrated spotter mirrors, MyKey owner controls feature, HD Radio (included in Electronics Package), fold-down rear head restraints, and tire mobility kit. There’s no cutting corners here – not that we would presume to tell you how to drive.
