With the sixth generation, 2015 Mustang ready to hit showrooms this January, we’ve already gotten its specs, but we haven’t been able to really scrutinize the car’s finer details, but here is a video of one specimen reving its engine. The car pictured is a GT with a 5.0 liter Coyote V8, which produces around 435 horsepower and 400 ft. lbs. of torque. The rear-wheel drive Mustang GT will be available in six speed manual or six speed automatic. The car pictured here was presented at a show hosted by American Muscle, who plans to auction it off in special trim as part of a charity event.
For those not going the GT route, the standard engine configuration for the 2015 Mustang will be a 3.7 liter V6, producing 300 horsepower and 280 ft. lbs. of torque. This is a slight decrease over the current 305 horsepower six cylinder Mustang. Those with more to spend and more passion for driving fast, will be availed the option to upgrade to the Mustang EcoBoost, which features a 2.3 liter turbocharged, four cylinder EcoBoost engine. The four cylinder EcoBoost produces 310 horsepower and 320 ft. lbs. of torque. Marketed as the Mustang EcoBoost, it will also be the first Mustang to be turbocharged since the 1986 Mustang SVO. Featuring an ‘upgrade’ to a smaller engine may seem somewhat counter-intuitive, but it constitutes Ford’s effort to promote its new, efficient EcoBoost line of engines.
