New 2020 Ford Mustang Arriving This Fall
Ford has a rich history and heritage of producing cars not just for the average consumer but also for racing. Spanning back decades of development from the Model T winning its first cross-country race in 1909 to introducing its first V-8 Flathead engine with the slogan, “Everyman’s power for the road, and Everyman’s power for racing.”
Ford has shown no stops at producing a vehicle fit for every consumer. This leads us to one of the most popular, well known iconic cars that Ford has produced since the 1960s and that is the Ford Mustang.
The Ford Mustang has changed a lot since the 1960s, by incorporating more technology and slowly shifting from a muscle car to a sports car. But all of that might change since an announcement was made back in 2017 about a Mustang hybrid. It has since been confirmed that a new spec will be added to the next generation of Mustangs, now dubbed the S650, for 2020.
With it set to arrive this Fall 2019, we have confirmed news about what’s to come.
Starting with the newly refreshed Grabber Lime for the 2020 Mustang, this color is a throwback to the 1970s vintage Mustang, sporting a new modern taste to it. The Second unveiled color is Twister Orange and both colors will be available starting for the 2020.
To further keep colors fresh, Iconic Silver and Red Hot Metallic, have been updated which will also include the Shelby GT350 and GT500.
As for specs we now know that Ford is designing a new engine, with enough power that will fall between the V8 and EcoBoost. A document has been going around with a VIN number indicating something new for the Ford Mustang. Duly deciphered, the VIN number indicated a couple of new additions.
One of them, shows the 2020 Mustang having 2 versions of their 2.3L turbocharged engine. While one indicates 310 HP, another is “TBD”. We’ll just have to wait for more news.
2020 Mustang Hybrid
One of the biggest pieces of news that we’ve known for 2 years already is the announcement that Ford is designing a hybrid for the 2020 Mustang. Although a lot of skepticism was met, many kept their faith in Ford by hoping it would be a “V8 hybrid”. Well, this piece of information may hold up as a patent was filed January 24th, 2019 for a new V8 engine.
Spy shots have also shown up with a Mustang retaining its GT emblem and sports brakes, as well as an open grille, allowing airflow into the engine bay.
All of these signs point to a very real V8 hybrid.
Quite a bit of speculation and details have been thrown around since the announcement back in 2017 and only time will tell just how much of it is true.
Stay tuned for more information on the 2020 Ford Mustang.
