Ford has launched the new 5.0 version of Mustang. The 2011 Ford Mustang GT is equipped with a new advanced 5.0-liter V-8 engine to deliver more than 400 horsepower.

The modern 5.0-liter four-valve Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT) V-8 engine in the new Mustang GT will deliver 412 horsepower and 390 ft.-lb. of torque. The fuel economy is projected to be better than the previous model and unsurpassed in the segment, claims the company.

Derrick Kuzak, vice president of Global Product Development at Ford, said: This all-new 5.0-liter engine is the next chapter in the development of the world-class Mustang powertrain portfolio. It's a thoroughly modern engine for the times, delivering the performance and fun-to-drive factor that enthusiasts want, while improving fuel economy.

The company said that the 2011 Mustang GT also benefits from improved noise, vibration and harshness control.

Barb Samardzich, vice president of Powertrain Development at Ford, said: This new powertrain honors Mustang's heritage by raising the bar on performance while increasing fuel economy. For enthusiasts, such as the passionate members of the 5.0-liter V-8 team, it's like having your cake and eating it, too.
