The Ford Mustang has always been known for its incredible performance. Even with that reputation, you will be truly impressed by the four engines available in this muscle car. You can choose to get as much power as you want from your 2017 Mustang or even enjoy a reasonable amount of fuel efficiency. With four available engines, there is an option for every Hoover driver.
The base engine for the Ford Mustang is a 3.7-liter V6 that gives you 300 horsepower and a torque of 280 pound-feet. It has twin independent variable camshaft timing, which precisely times and controls the intake of air and fuel and the output of exhaust in the engine. This helps with low-speed torque and peak power. To make it even more impressive, this engine achieves 18 mpg in the city, 27 on the highway, and 21 combined*.
On the EcoBoost trims, the 2017 Mustang runs on a 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine with 310 horsepower and 320 pound-feet. The exhaust runners within two chambers running to the turbine are separated by the twin-scroll turbocharger as a way to transfer the high-pulse energy right to the vehicle’s turbine wheel. The result is an incredibly quick response when you push the pedal.
On the Mustang GT, you are treated to a 5-liter V8 along with 435 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque, more than the fifth generation. The engine has large exhaust and intake valves as a way to maximize the power generated in every compression. Drivers also love the exhaust note when the vehicle is in action.
The Shelby GT350 runs on its own 5.2-liter V8 engine featuring a flat-plane crank. This engine gives the 2017 Mustang 526 horsepower and 429 pound-feet of torque. This model also features a unique MagneRide Damping System, Brembo brake calipers, and extra aerodynamic elements.
