2020 Ford Mustang GT500 0-60 Review – A few years ago, he could have been amazed at the concept of a 707 horsepower power car. Then they got a little more nervous putting the same engine on the Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk. Let’s not forget the next Ram Rebel TRX. For 2019, Dodge increased power in the Challenger SRT Hellcat to 717. However, according to some new data, Ford is not going to tolerate that. And this is his answer: the Mustang Shelby GT500.
2020 Ford Mustang GT500 0-60 Review
The latest generation model was simple, and provided the whopping of 662 horsepower and 631 lb-ft of torque. However, times have passed, and Ford does not want to get lost in this escalation of horsepower. To that end, they have improved their game with the 2020 Shelby GT500. We know from the company teaser in Detroit that it would have more than 700 horsepower. Great, but how much more? Now, thanks to the Mustang6g forums, we can have our answer. A leaked document shows possible specifications for a 5.2-liter V8 supercharged Mustang. Now, we had some inclination that the Shelby GT500 would probably use the same Voodoo V8 engine as the GT350. However, it seems that this will be more powerful, producing 720 horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque.
Ford has launched new warning shots in the increasingly intense muscular car wars by confirming that the upcoming Mustang variant Shelby GT500 will be the most powerful Ford production car in history, with more than 700 horsepower. We will not see this high Fidelity Stang until 2019, but this confirmation is accompanied by a short test video that shows some glimpses of the GT500 supercharged that will certainly open our appetite for what is to come. (The image above is a guess of an illustrator about how it will look.)
Rumors about the latest GT500 have been overflowing since the debut of the sixth-generation Mustang of the S550 in 2013, and most of them began to converge on speculation that a 5.2-liter V-8 supercharged will be under the hood. This powerful engine can have the name in Predator code and seems to share its block with the 5.2-liter V-8 flat engine installed on the current Shelby GT350. It’s not likely to be the same happy monster with the revolutions we love in that car because of its more conventional crankshaft design, but a root-type supercharger should compensate for that deficiency.
As a complement to the GT350 ready for the track, it hopes that the GT500 will focus more on the performance of the straight-line drag band, the acceleration of bonkers and an impressive maximum speed. You will certainly have a lot of work to compete against the 650 hp Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and the latest variants of Dodge Challenger, including the 707 hp SRT Hellcat and the totally insane 840 hp daemon. We can’t wait for these battles to heat up completely once the GT500 is finally released, probably within a year in the Detroit 2019 motor Show next January.
Powerful, but heavy.
Not only that, but this document also suggests that the Mustang Shelby GT500 2020 will use a 3.73 rear axle (again, like the GT350) and tilt the balance to 4.225 lbs. If that figure is true, this new GT500 will be heavy compared to the GT350 of 3,760 lbs. That’s not as heavy as the Hellcat, which weighs more than 4.400 pounds, but is a little heavier than the Camaro ZL1.
