Ford Mustang GT Can Do 0-60 Mph In Under 4 Seconds!

2018 Mustang GT

The 2018 Mustang GT will deliver 460 ground-pounding horsepower from the latest 5.0-liter Coyote engine that bolts to a new Ford-built 10-speed automatic transmission. With the V6 engine being removed from the option list, the 2.3L EcoBoost 4-cylinder is now the base engine and these power levels make the 2018 base model Mustang the most powerful entry level model ever. The retuned engine packs 310 horsepower and 350 lb-ft. of torque, a 30 lb-ft. gain over the 2017 model. The Blue Oval has finally shared engine specs on the refreshed 2018 Mustang lineup, and we'd say it's definitely not a coincidence that the Stang's updated 5.0-liter V-8's new output of 460 horsepower (25 more than before) beats the Chevrolet Camaro SS's 6.2-liter V-8 by 5 horsepower.

The Porsche Cayman R originally made its debut in 2010, and it's actually one of many older Porsche models (including the 2001 911 Turbo) that are slower than the Mustang GT.

Although its figures aren't as impressive, the EcoBoost Mustang also benefits from Drag Strip mode.

Ford claims that the 2018 Mustang GT with this automatic will run to 60 miles per hour in less than four seconds, which would be a fairly significant drop from the quickest time we've measured in a Mustang GT so far, a manual example that hit the milestone in 4.3 seconds. The four-banger also gets the 10-speed and Drag Strip Mode, and can sprint to 60 miles per hour in under five seconds, according to Ford.

Ford's Mustang EcoBoost can now capitalize on the drag-racing experience offered by its V8-powered counter thanks to a now-standard line-lock system. The GT actually gets a new Drag Strip mode, which optimizes the transmission for straight-line performance.

While the added power helps, a big part of that insane acceleration is the 10-speed automatic transmission, which offers lightning-quick shift times and more aggressive gearing for low end pull. The 10-speed architecture features Ford-patented power-flow and Ford-patented direct-acting hydraulic controls.

This year's Ford Mustang GT will be faster than ever before.

Drag Strip mode is selectable like the Normal, Sport, Track and Snow/Wet modes. "And in Drag Strip mode, this vehicle launches better than ever off the line". "Steering wheel-mounted shift paddles allow drivers maximum manual control".

Customers can build and price their 2018 Mustang on Ford's website.
