I just read in Automotive News that Ford plans to replace the aging (aged?) 4.0, 210 hp V-6 engine with a new 3.7, 305 hp V-6. The new engine has all the right peices except one. It has double overhead cams, 4 valves per cylinder and variable valve timing. The one missing item is direct injection, which the Camaro has.
Even better… this engine comes with new 6 speed manual and automatic transmissions.
It’s about time. The Mustang has been behind the curve with the base Mustang against all sport coupe competition in the engine and transmission department.
But the real question is… with a 305 hp base Mustang what will they do to the current 315 hp V-8 Mustang GT. Hmmmm!
