Performance and Efficiency

There are some differences to Mustang that you’ll see straight away. Others you’ll hear, feel and sense, especially with a modified 5.0L V8 engine and a range of innovative new technologies.

Mustang 5 litre engine

One Mustang. Two powerful engines

We’ve added dual-fuel high-pressure direct injection and a low-pressure port fuel injection to the Mustang’s renowned 5.0L V8 engine. The new BULLITT has an even more powerful engine, producing 469PS at 7,250 rpm and 529 Nm of torque.  We’ve also increased the overboost on the 2.3L Ford EcoBoost engine while reducing emissions even further still.

Active Valve Exhaust

Take control of the sound your Mustang makes with this new technology. Simply choose Active Valve Exhaust from the menu on the 12” Digital Cluster and you can adjust the intensity of the exhaust note from four different settings: Quiet, Normal, Sport or Race track. With Quiet Mode you can even set up a timer so you know exactly when it’s going to operate.

Serious stopping power

A specially created, high-performance braking system incorporates four-piston front brake calipers and ventilated discs, the performance of which is linked to a series of sophisticated electronic safety and driver assistance technologies. The 5.0-litre V8 GT is equipped with an even higher specification: 6-piston Brembo™ front calipers that bite down on 15" vented rotors.
