The forthcoming 2021 Ford Mustang Mach 1’s power have become known.
A few days ago, Ford made an official announcement it would return the Mustang Mach 1 for the 2021 model year.
There are spy shots available, which reveal some details about the car.
Certainly, we’d like to know which drivetrain the Mach 1 gets, and how powerful it will be.
Ford confirmed a naturally-aspirated 5.0L Coyote V8 engine for the model. Furthermore, the automaker has emphasized that the limited-edition pony will be the “epitome” of its segment.
Ford Authority’s insiders have discovered the Blue Oval’s engineers aim for 525 hp and 450 lb-ft of torque for the Mach 1.
This is noticeably more than the Mustang Bullitt and the regular Mustang GT offer, and comparable with the Shelby’s GT350 526 hp and 429 lb-ft generated by the naturally aspirated 5.2-liter Voodoo V8. The Mach 1 will indirectly replace the Shelby GT350.
It is still unclear how Ford will boost the 5.0L Coyote V8’s output for the Mach 1. This engine is receptive to modifications. In recent years, the unit has got a power increase and performance calibration.
Interestingly, the camshafts in the Coyote engine rarely underwent upgrades, mostly due to the cost for upgrade of four cams in a DOHC engine like the Coyote. Heads are also the parts to be potentially improved in this engine.
The camshaft, we remind, is usually replaced by those who want to squeeze more power from the engine.
