Engine may be carryover for one year, but after that, we have a cool new motor.

5.0L aluminum block, DOHC, twin turbo, DI.

Large horsepower number... hasn't been settled yet. I heard between 500 and 550, but that was a long time ago.

For the truly silly, there's a 6.2L iron block with those same turbos floating around out there as a low-cost diesel alternative for the F-Series.

If the Camaro or Challenger try anything funny (ie, ZR1 engine), Ford has a production-spec nuclear V8 sitting on the shelf.

7 liter, 700hp, 700 ft/lbs of torque. SOHC iron block.

If you take the 6.2 Ecoboost it could make 600+ easily.
600hp?

Small potatoes.

You don't want to let Camaro owners think they have a chance, do you?

They bring a knife, you bring a gun.

They rough up your guys, you put one of theirs in the morgue.

They whip out the ZR1 engine, we put a 7.0L EcoBoost in the Mustang.

Wait, what is this 7.0L engine, iv never heard of it. The biggest engine that I now that Ford makes is the 6.8 V10. Is this a new engine or something?

Yes.

It's the largest version of the Hurricane/Boss engine family... basically a bored-out 6.2. The SOHC iron block N/A version has been testing in a yellow Mustang for about a year and a half now... code named 777 (7.0L, 700hp, 700 ft/lbs of torque).

It's a design study, and will be put on the shelf for any emergencies (ie, ZR1 engine in Camaro).

Ok thanks all i was awhere was the 5.8 and 6.2, im surprised though that they can bore the 6.2 out so far to get 7.0.

Good luck seeing the 7.0 with the current oil situation....
Yes... I'm certain Ford intended this as a base engine for the Focus.

If it does see production, it would be a limited run by Shelby in Las Vegas... 500 units or less.

Isnt it essentially 2 Ecoboost 2.5Ls from the 2010 Fusion? If they each make 275 hp, then the 5.0L EB could make more than 550hp.

I would call it the Shelby GT500SS.
Ummm not a good idea, we dont need a copyright lawsuit from GM to Ford.

O my god, a ZR1 Camaro!? I think a SS and RS will suffice if they reach the magic 500hp mark like the GT500.

Dude Ford already uses it, remember the GT500 special edition by Shelby that got 600hp and 750 hp. That is called GT500SS and the SS stands for Super Snake and it was also used on the Cobra back in the 60s. Only two were made back then. One crashed and went into the Pacific and the other was sold at Barret-Jackson back a couple years ago.
