Mustang specs

The 5.0-litre V8 Mustang GT should deliver 324kW and 542Nm when it lands in Australia next year, with a top speed of 250km/h. And the entry level model, the twin-scroll turbocharged 2.3-litre Ecoboost straight-four will output 231kW and 433Nm – the first Ford to get the new low-inertia turbo that Ford says delivers provides quicker boost response (minimising lag) while also lowering emissions. The Ecoboost Mustang will weigh around 1600kg with an auto transmission (the lightest model in the line-up), while the heaviest model, the GT with an auto, tips the scales at just under 1700kg.

All those figures are based on the performance stats of the US versions of the Mustang, revealed today.

The 223kW V6 that is the entry level Mustang in the US won’t be in Australian showrooms, where we only have the two variants to choose from.
