When you get behind the wheel of a sports car, you expect to feel the rush from the engine. Nothing gives you this experience quite like a Ford Mustang.

At Gus Machado Ford, we want you to envision getting on the open roads of Hialeah, Miami, Coral Gables, and Doral, FL, feeling the power of the horses under the hood. In this article, we will take a closer look at the engine options of the Ford Mustang and the horsepower you get.

Ford Mustang: EcoBoost® Engine

The first engine option for the Ford Mustang is the 2.3L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder engine. This engine provides 310 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. It is a turbocharged and direct fuel injected engine and features twin independent variable cam timing (Ti-VCT).

Additionally, there is another EcoBoost® engine option that raises your performance. The 2.3L High-Performance Package is the first EcoBoost® engine powered by Ford Performance. It produces 330 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. It also has an active exhaust with quad tips. It is the most powerful in-line 4-cylinder engine in America and the most powerful EcoBoost® engine ever made available for the Ford Mustang.

Ford Mustang: GT

If you want to take your performance a step higher, the classic Ford Mustang GT is the next engine on the list. The Ford Mustang horsepower you get from the GT is substantial, as the iconic 5.0L Ti-VCT V8 engine offers 460 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. This engine also features port fuel direct injection.

Ford Mustang: Mach 1

Next on the list is the Ford Mustang Mach 1. This engine continues to make advances in the horsepower you have while adding to the overall performance.

This is also a 5.0L Ti-VCT V8 engine that is uniquely calibrated and tuned for more speed. The Mach 1 Handling Package also helps you have more thrills on the road by helping you make sharper turns. This engine produces 480 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. It is paired with a 6-speed manual transmission with rev-matching and provides 22% more downforce than a Mustang GT with Performance Pack Level 1.

Ford Mustang: Shelby GT500

Finally, the most powerful option is the Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. This is the engine found on the Shelby GT500 and provides top-of-the-line power and performance on any road.

This engine is a handbuilt 5.2L supercharged cross-plane crank V8 that projects to provide over 760 horsepower and 625 lb-ft of torque for a performance unlike any other you will experience on the road. For the ultimate thrills, this is the engine to choose if you want to experience the endless possibilities of Ford Mustang horsepower.
