    So happy!!!

    At least I know when I'll be trading in my current Mustang now!!!!

    An EcoBoost electrified with V8 power... right from the factory... exactly what the Doctor ordered.

    This would line up really, really well with the current Ford ideal...

    What's the Top Dog overall? The Ford GT (3.5TT)

    What's the top F150? The Raptor (3.5TT)

    I could see of the standard Mustang's...a 3.5TT with electric augment would be the top dog.

    I thought he said "V8 performance". With the new emissions standards coming in 2020, I highly doubt it will be a V8+ electric motor. V6+Electric or I4EB+Electric. I hope I'm wrong.

    The reality is petrol powered automobiles will begin to dwindle as manufacturers find alternative sources. That's the entire purpose of electrification. When a vehicle has a hybrid variation, it's given a very real mark on it's record to be turned entirely electric in its future. It means the model will live on past the days of petrol. Which I'm happy to know. But just the same, I would never buy one.

    Despite what some say, if you tune one of these 5.0L cars, it's still fairly analog. Which is what the mustang was all about. Ford, as well as many many other people, know the days are dwindling where V8 muscle cars exist. This is the start of it.

    Meh. I'll stop buying Mustangs when the V8 is not available. I don't care what displacement.

    Hear that, Ford? I'll just buy the last V8 and that will be it. Sad.

    You will give in once you hear it has a range of 600 miles and goes 0-60 in 2.5 to 3 seconds.

    They can even pump in some v8 sound through your speakers, if you want.

    I love the V8..but I'd buy a 3.5TT GT in a heartbeat too.

    Put the 3.5TT from the Raptor into the Mustang GT? I'd likely actually buy that right now, even with the Coyote available.

    So could all the previous talk about an AWD Mustang end up being true? With this setup, they could go for the gas engine powering the rear wheels and electric motors for the front.

    Porsche 918 is a monster and also gets 67mpg.... my issue with hybrids was always the lackluster performance. I for one welcome the future, at the end of the day i care about going fast and great handling. If the new mustang has a recipe that can do that using electric motors, batteries and is more economical to drive, i am all for it.

    That would make sense with the splined spindles we've already found on the GT350.

    This ^^ 100%

    Im betting the V6 TT will be the new top engine with the combined output of electric motors will be stupid quick from a dead stop probably with a launch control function. Some form of the coyote engine sits as mid trim. Eco-boost 4 is the base.
    I wonder how they they power the rear wheels with a combination of torque from the electric motor and engine with the mustang? I wonder what the price premium would be for the hybrid mustang.

    Does this mean I can get a tax credit on a mustang for purchasing a "hybrid vehicle" ? LOL ! Strange times we live in.

    I suspect they trying to lower hybrid component cost per vehicle with such expansion for other ford electric and hybrid vehicles.

    The fact that it says "will deliver V8 power"... is a clear indication that the hybrid version will NOT have a V8. It will be an I4 or V6 with hybrid tech.

    I'd love them to still use the V8 in this. V8 plus hybrid batteries? That's McLaren P1 tech. In a Mustang!

    However, if they don't use the V8 in it, but the V8 remains in another model, that's where my heart would be and the one I'd buy one of those, instead.

    Whatever petrol engine this shares though.....I think it's going to be an epic Mustang :headbang:

    Syntax guys: "V8 power with hybrid technology"

    As in achieving V8 power with hybrid assistance. That electric motor won't be paired up with a V8 most likely based on those words.

    Look what it's paired with with the F150.

    If it's the 3.5TT...then it'll be the 3.5TT in the Mustang.
