2010 Ford Mustang - Click above for a high-res image gallery

The Ford Mustang 5.0 has been gone for some time, but with the new 32-valve, 5.0-liter "Coyote" V8 on its way, the badge could make a comeback and undoubtedly it'll be more successful than Vanilla Ice's past attempts.

After some digging through Ford's parts database, a forum member at TheMustangSource came across a "5.0" badge and an accompanying part number that could find itself attached to the 2011 Ford Mustang. Supposedly, KC also found listings for three new engine/transmission combos for 2011: the 3.7-liter V6 reported earlier (with both auto and manual gearboxes), a 5.0-liter (with the same transmission options) and a supercharged 5.4-liter. Although we're treating this with a healthy bit of skepticism, it doesn't seem beyond the pale, and if Van Winkle plays his cards right, maybe Ford will tap him for the marketing campaign. Thanks for the tip Matt!

      Great ! another vehicle that leans towards the Rich..I suppose it get 7 miles to the Gallon as well..The Big 3 fail once again to see the big picture..all they care about is the Big Profit..which keeps me unemployed from my job , ironically as an auto parts supplier. How about building something that is economically sound, a vehicle that the general public will buy, which in turn will get Working Joes like myself back on the job ! I will be sure to jump all over this one and buy it as soon as it hits the show room floor ! ..Oh yeah I forgot HOPE AND CHANGE CANNOT MAKE THE VEHICLE PAYMENTS FOR ME ! I hope everyone realizes what they voted for back in November because they sure as hell got it ! The future is just looking so bright with this out right LIE !

      i cant wait for the Coyote engine...i have a 91 GT and i def would not mind putting another 5.0 in the garage even if its a DOHC....400+ sounds good to me...the only problem im seeing is which car to put my money in...i love the new camaro ss but when this comes out...its done. mustang ftw...and if the ecoboost twin-turbo comes as a v6 option then i can say ford has finally put a smile on my face and made me a happy camper.

      GT-3.7 ecoboost
      GT 5.0-5l. v8
      Shelby GT500-5.0 ecoboost

      Had a '68 with the 351 Cleveland.
      Now that was a muscle car.
      (Traded it in on a 69 Camero. It was the Indy pace car that year.
      Wish I had kept the Stang.)

      This is not news to me. I knew they would bring out the 5.0 Mustang for the 2011.

      And they are gonna bring back the Mach 1 Mustang.

      I am 99.99% sure of it.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Oh yes, the Bullitt Mustang will actually be more original to the old fast back from the movie.

        The hips, the front end, etc.

        The 2008/9 Bullitt doesnt look a thing like the old Bullitt.

        They can....they WILL perfect it with the 2011 Mustang...or the 2012 Mustang.
        • 6 Years Ago
        if and when they bring back the 72-73 Mach 1, i'll buy one
        • 6 Years Ago
        Big fan of the bullitt but they are not coming out with another bullitt two years after the last special edition was in production.

      Like I said in the other Mustang thread if you buy a 2010 stang you're a moron because this is the one to get. Wait a year and get an infinately better car.
        • 6 Years Ago
        u never buy the first model year car of any brand. If you can wait, its usually best to get the last model year, because all the kinks should have been worked out by then. Not to mention, all the special editions, and etc are available at this point and your options are much better than the original version.

        This is only of course if you can stand waiting all those extra years for the car

        Zig: We know about the 2011s, we are a small part of the car buying public. Of course I'll wait for the 2011, that doesn't make others morons.

        Five-Oh in da House.

        I see your point, but there are buyers who are the "have to have it first" type regardless of the hardware upgrades that may be on the way. I think Ford played this right in regard to improving sales numbers over a longer period.
        • 6 Years Ago
        Ok so I went overboard calling them morons but with all the information available to todays car buying public there really is no excuse. But I guess I should thank those "less informed" buyers who purchase based only on looks because they put money in the bank so that companies can develop cars that we few band of brothers really want.

        And yes never buy the first year model you'll always get screwed--just ask an 08 wrx owner.
