2013 mustang inctrease hp

Post by Big Mike226 on Tue Aug 16, 2011 8:31 pm



Many of the rumors in the past few months have been regarding the 2015 Mustang, but as we initially reported last month, Ford will first unveil a redesigned Mustang in 2013 before we see the next generation pony car from the Blue Oval. Very little has been reported about what changes are in store for the 2013 Mustang, but our inside sources have given us new details about what to expect from the upcoming model year.

First up, the 2013 Mustang will be getting a fairly significant redesign, with many styling cues from the current Shelby GT500 making their way onto the front of the car including the larger, protruding upper grille and smaller, rounder lower grille. This aligns with the mysterious Mustang test mule that was caught on the streets of Dearborn back in April. As a modern touch, LED lights will be used, most likely for the fog lights in the lower front fascia. Many Mustang fans will also be happy to know that the controversial taillight design first seen on the 2010 Mustang have also gone on the chopping block for 2013, giving way to a lights that run straight across the back of the car rather than angling towards the front.

As far as powertrains go, our sources say that they will remain the same for 2013, a 5.0L V8 and the 3.7L V6, although Ford will be giving a slight bump in horsepower to the Mustang GT (no word on the V6) to be more on par with the Camaro SS. The exact horsepower figure for the Mustang GT is unknown, but expect it to come in right around 425. As we reported back in March, the 2013 Shelby GT500 will also be getting an increase in horsepower to as much as 620.

I saw this. I'm REAL curious what the new body work will look like. The power bump is modest and doesn't impress, but I'm wondering if anything on the skin can be picked up...

John, I saw that on another site and commented. Will Ford spend too much money/time on a major redesign on the cuurent body when the plan is a full redesign for the 50th anniversary? From 2010 to 2011 there were slight changes(apart from engines)...exterior mirrors received blind spot mirrors, rear seat got fold down headrests, key fob has a mustang on it otherwise identical. Will Ford change the rearend like from 66-67? Minor changes are to be expected, especially in performance i.e. Hp & tq

We can only speculate as to what ford will do. We do not know what ford has instore for the mustang. We think there maybe a redesign in 2015, Do we know this with out a doubt? no we dont. All we can do is site back and enjoy the ride

Well Mike, by next Spring property values should have plummeted another 20% (the way the economy is heading).

Put that saving into a new 5.0 and you will have it all !!!

From what I've seen, it looks like a slight alteration to resemble more like the recent GT500s. IMO, that's a straight slap in the face to GT500 owners.

I hear you and it doesn't quite make sense as I like the front configuration of the current GT.


Besides...what GT owner would want the front of their car to look like the GT500 anyways... ROTFL
