True.

As highlighted before, there is also a 470 in that very same image. So are we now taking for granted that the 470 is correct? Perhaps the 455 is torque? Before anyone says it, exactly, you can read into these numbers anything if you search hard enough.

It may be 455 hp, Hell, I would love it to be 470. Until Ford officially release numbers, it's just pure guess work from us all (and hope).

Id say it holds more water than what you heard at your local dealership.

Don't get me wrong, I would love for the number to be 470. I really would. Truth of the matter is that hinting with advertising is kind of a thing. has been for a while.



My guess is that your dealership got the idea of 470 from the tachometer reading on the same picture that the assumed 455 came from. Maybe 470 HP and 455 TQ? That seems reasonable from looking at THIS picture. Who knows?

We just got our 2018 model year order guide companion here at the dealership. Some nice pictures of the '18s with the performance package, pony package for the EB, and a glimpse of the carbon sport interior package. My guess is since we just got the companion, we should see the guide any day now.

I just received a 2018 printed guide that shows details about some of the special packages for all 2018 vehicles including Mustang. The second vehicle in the video is the Eco Premium Pony Package. (silver around windows, front grill like the 2015 anniversary, lower door side stripes, 2017 Eco PP rims painted silver, and the rear panel tribar pony like the V6 in red/white/blue instead of chrome). Tall spoiler is standard on Eco and GT PP (no mention if there is a delete). Black accent GT package requires painted black roof. Carbon fiber interior option on shift knob, dash panel and Alcantara inserts on door cards and seats. Sorry no pictures allowed.

While I am sure most of us would love to have a bump to 470 HP or more, we need to keep in mind that this is a refresh of a current model, not a new model, despite all the talk of how the Coyote is totally different. Ford also likes to keep a little on the table for future horsepower increases without having to change too much, as we all know. I hope I'm totally wrong, but just trying to be realistic.

Better really hope there's a spoiler delete. If not...

So is the car going to be lighter or heavier now?

I'm pretty sure that they have said before that you can delete the spoiler, which I plan to do. I'll try and find that source.

In this interview with the chief engineer for the mustang he says that it's not only Aero-neutral but also provides downforce.

Not sure if that logic works out now that I look at the supposed GT500 IPC



If that is the case, it will have about 251 HP and 755 TQ.

So I have to go with the 455 in the GT and 755 in the GT500. I think that is more likely. I wonder if the 11:17: could be a hint at quarter mile speed for the GT500?
