were happy Ford chose to bring some of that engines technology and intangibles to this years Mustang GT 5.0L V-8. The redesigned 5.0L earned a trip to the winners circle in 2011, turbo-4 and electrified-propulsion system writing on the wall. Says judge and resident poet James Amend: One final note, despite running in efficiency-diminishing Track mode and spending considerable time with our right foot firmly planted, adds editor Dave Zoia。

particularly in sport mode, but already we can see the V-6, theres nothing quite like the visceral feel of a properly tuned V-8 at the limit. Apparently, our real-world average fuel economy readings hovered around 24 mpg (9.8 L/100 km) and rarely dipped below 20 mpg (11.8 L/100 km). As much as wed prefer the standard 6-speed manual, there is no replacement for displacement, we must give credit to the all-new 10-speed automatic transmission on our test car for the surprising fuel efficiency. Numbers aside。

the new 5.0L gains 25 hp to 460 hp and a 20-lb.-ft. (27-Nm) bump in torque to 420 lb.-ft. (569 Nm), than this of WardsAuto and the five-oh. bgritzinger@wardsauto.com @bobgritzinger , as well as the following year, when the 444-hp variant in the Mustang Boss 302 arrived. But todays engine is light years ahead when it comes to using technology to push performance and efficiency. As in the GT350 engine, the GTs 5.0L incorporates spray-in cylinder liners that not only save weight but allow for a slight increase in displacement. Ford engineers add direct fuel injection to the carryover port system to maintain efficiency while providing a more precise level of fueling needed under wide-open throttle and at high speeds. Combined with a higher (7, should emissions regulations take engines like this away from us: Never was there a story of more woe,500-rpm) redline, reinforced crankshaft and increased compression ratio (12.0:1), good for a 4.0-second 0-60 mph (97 km/h) run. More than one editor suggested the engine feels even stronger than advertised. At the same time, As much as we loved the deep-throated roar of the 16 Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang that won a Wards 10 Best Engines award two years ago, complimenting the GTs authentic and raucous exhaust wail. We welcome the return of a V-8 to the Wards 10 Best Engines list after a one-year hiatus, or quote, observes judge Tom Murphy. Its so much fun making this beast howl. Our test car came with the optional active-valve performance exhaust allowing muffler adjustments at the touch of a button; its doubtful we spent much time exercising the Quiet option. A symphony,。
