2019 Ford Mustang GT500: GT-Sourced Mill Is Never Happening!

By  | 

Ford is expected to launch the next-gen Mustang GT500 before 2018 reaches a close and the happening will put an end to every allegation made on the vehicle.

One particular claim is with the GT500 not coming out with a traditional V8 engine and this is due to global pressures on automakers to downsize. While it’s not expected of Ford to ditch the V8 for the next GT500, the carmaker has been pretty active in complying with the call to downsize hence leading the Mustang fans into a state of worry.

The speculations further added that the V8s will be going away for the GT500 and in its place will be the twin-turbo V6 engine that is sourced from Ford’s supercar – the GT.

Well, if this is true, we are unsure on what sort of engine bay the Mustang GT500 will have as it will need a special design to adopt the twin-turbo V6. Furthermore, it is even more unlikely for the V8s to go away because Ford has described the mill as the definition of the Mustang and not offering it with the GT500 will make zero sense to even build the car at all.

With that being said, you can look forward to seeing a V8 mill resting under the hood of the next-gen GT500. As for what type of V8 will be in place, you will need to wait a little longer for an answer.
