The 2024 Ford Mustang Finally Reveals Its Power Figures Code List

    As we have seen on previous occasions, Ford likes to release information on its most popular cars in stages. The best example comes now, with the signature of the blue oval announcing the power and torque figures of its new Ford Mustang, exactly three months after its premiere in Detroit. The highlight is the 506PS and 566Nm of torque from the Mustang Darkhorse, the new flagship of the 2024 Mustang family, also making it the most powerful production 5.0-litre Ford ever sold..

    Access models are also reinforced

    But it doesn’t end here. If we go to the entrance of the mountain range, The Mustang EcoBoost’s base 2.3-litre four-cylinder engine is all-new and makes 316bhp and 474Nm. While the torque figure is identical to that of the outgoing Mustang EcoBoost, power is increased by a further 5bhp.. However, it is worth noting that the outgoing so-called EcoBoost performance package has already increased its output to 334 hp. But don’t worry, Ford has anticipated that this package will return for the 2024 Mustang.

    The most popular remains the Coyote V8 that debuted for the 2011 Mustang, now upgraded with dual butterflies, a new crankcase, revised exhaust, and longer-lasting exhaust valves. A) Yes, the 5.0-litre V8 makes 486bhp and 562Nm of torque, but you get an extra 6bhp if you opt for the all-valve performance exhaust. So equipped, the 2024 Mustang GT already tops the old Mach 1’s 486bhp, though it has slightly less torque than the previous model’s 569Nm, which shouldn’t be too noticeable. And even without the optional exhaust, the new GT outperforms the old GT, which offered 456bhp and 555Nm of torque.

    Beyond 500 CV with the V8 5.0 Coyote

    To be the new king of the Mustan family, the Darkhorse adds a beefier new crankshaft, new camshafts and the forged connecting rods from the Shelby GT500 to deliver its 506bhp and 566Nm. The only naturally aspirated Mustang to offer more power is the Shelby GT350, which used a Coyote-derived 5.2-litre flatbed V8 to deliver 533bhp and 481Nm.

    Surely there will be more powerful versions of this new Mustang later with the Shelby versions above all, but these 533 hp in a 5.0-liter already sound very good to us.
