Would anyone be interested on a Hybrid 5.0L?
Shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone, but no interest here either.

Too many negatives (weight, complexity, room, reduced driver involvement) that I can't justify putting up with to get an increase in the one aspect of vehicle performance that I'm not much interested in.

I would be interested in reading about it, but I wouldn't buy it unless there were no other options (including just keeping my current car, buying used or building something). I would really prefer the Mustang to stay as simple as possible so I can continue to afford to buy newer vehicles rather than settling for something older.

I don't really care if an electric or hybrid is faster 0-60 than my car. I would rather see a larger displacement V8 or a turbocharged smaller displacement V8 over anything utilizing electrics. I do by far prefer the 5.0 V8 over a V6 or 4 cylinder, though.

If anything, add lightness. :)

No.



Maybe for a special edition high power Mustang in the future, but damn that would be an expensive car...

I'd never buy it for a toy however id buy a SUV/ Bronco. If I could get a Bronco off road edition 5.L with additional HP from an electric motor for 45K starting, I'd be interested.

I agree totally with Wildcatgoal. All i see are high tech cool stuff for the Mustang that very few average people can afford any longer. 50K plus Bullitt, 80K GT500, and if the Mach1 ever appears for the Mustang 60K, are examples. Just give me some options of a low priced entry level GT like I purchased in 2015 that I can customize as I like.

Hybrid 5.0? No thanks.

Hybrid 2.0 makes a lot more sense.

Well, the ship has sailed on simplicity. And cheapness. As for adding lightness, I'm all for it, but there goes your affordability angle. Aluminum & CF aren't cheap.

Agreed.

Whilst I'm sure the V8's days are numbered, I'm hoping/expecting the Coyote will live for the duration of S650.

Ideally, we'd still have:

5.0
5.0 + electric motors
5.2 + FI + electric motors

Unless the lighter weight is done by making the car less of a huge barge. These cars are significantly bigger than I would prefer.

I disagree with your "ship sailing" comment as well. Cars can become more simple again. And the manufacturers can sell a lot more cars if those cars can be sold at lower prices.

Agreed.

IMO there's no reason to give up on V8s without a fight. There's absolutely nothing wrong with cars continuing to utilize V8 engines. I'm very, very tired of the fanatics consistently getting their way. We reasonable people tend to compromise over and over again. Meanwhile, the things we love are being taken from us.
