2019 Ford Mustang GT500 Won’t Have A 680HP Supercharged V8, Here’s Why

By  | 

The next-gen Ford Mustang GT500 is one of the most anticipated cars right now and it is easy to understand why. The car promises to be a big leap forward from the current model as it plans to come with way more power to offer.

A couple of days ago, an article from Motor Trend claims to have legit information on the next GT500 and they revealed that the car will rely on a supercharged V8 that can churn out 680hp. We already heard Ford saying that they are sticking with the V8s for the Mustang thus making the leak looking likely to come true.

But then again, the leak came together with a separate report claiming that the next-gen Fiesta is going to get released here in the US. This particular leak has been debunked by Ford earlier today, which means that there is a chance for the Mustang report to be nothing more than a hoax.

Besides, we just can’t imagine the GT500 running on a supercharged mill. Ford has patented the name EcoBeast and this makes it likely for the GT500 to rely on a turbocharged V8. What do you think?
