2010 Ford Mustang Could See the Return of the 5.0L V8

Ford is working on a new Mustang for 2010 and this time the stakes are even higher since the new Camaro and Challenger are set to steal the Mustang’s market share.

There are rumors that Ford could be working on a new 5.0L V8 for the Mustang. The last time a 5.0L was available in the Mustang was in the mid-1990’s. In an interview with stuff.co.nz, Bill Osborne, President of Ford Australia, revealed that the automaker is working a 5.0L V8 for the Falcon, which is the same engine being developed for the new Mustang. We’ll have to wait for an official confirmation from Ford. It will be interesting to see if this new engine is standard on the GT or if it will be reserved for higher end models. Also will this engine be a new engine or a stroked version of the current 4.6L V8.

This news is in contrast to recent rumors that GM is looking at a turbo 4-cylinder for the Camaro that will get better gas mileage than a typical 6-cyl engine.
