2011 Ford Mustang GT - click above to watch the video

Let's just call today – December 28, 2009 – Mustang 5.0 Day and be done with it, okay? We've seen lots of pictures and even more information about the 2011 Ford Mustang GT and it's bad to its baffled sump 5.0-liter 32-valve V8. But that's just a bunch of static information. The kids today, they demand action! After all, what good are "teh Internets" without video? Especially Mustang 5.0 video?

That's precisely what the good folks at Ford have provided for our consumption/enjoyment. Warning: this is not Top Gear. The video you are about to watch is typical OEM B-roll. Meaning no tires will be smoked, no apexes clipped, no music will be thumped. All you'll see is the new 2011 Mustang GT with the Track Pack (notice the strut brace and Brembos) driving around. And then parked. So while it's not the most exciting video in the history of the world, it is the very first of the new Mustang strutting its stuff.

Now, as a bonus, we're also throwing in some footage of the new 5.0 V8 on a dynometer. We already know the power ratings (412 horsepower @ 6,500 RPM, 390 lb-ft of torque at 4,000 RPM), but in the video, we get to see the motor race almost all the way up to its 7,000 RPM redline. And, because we are who we are, we're tossing in one more bonus video to make you smile. Hey, it's the holidays. So, make the jump and watch 'em.

      Beautiful car. I love a black plain no frills Mustang.
      Nice car ! Ford.
      Good to see the 5.0l come back.
      Now how about a 5.8L or should I say 351 Cleveland. LoL

      The Mustang is nice, someday I will buy one.

      Your special video: "This video contains content from EMI. It is no longer available in your country."

      So what is it?

        Why would they give us a music video to that "song"?

        Probably a Vanilla Ice music video.

      Really bold moves.

      Lovin' the equal length runner shorty headers, some serious goods for a stock production car. Someone's earned their paycheck figuring out how to bolt those on the production line.

        Just went back and read the engine post, apparently not equal length, still looks like it's an interesting piece to bolt on with a robot.

      Vanilla Ice? Very Funny guys, very funny.

      With the close-up of the 5.0 badge, looked like the paint needed a wet-sand badly.

      I just realized while watching the first video that I watch way too much Top Gear. During the shot at 0:48 when they were just staring at it for a few seconds, I was expecting it to explode.

      @Michael; What sort of limited slip diff are you refering to? Ford's 8.8 w/ Trac-Lok has always been a clutch type limited slip diff.

      imo its doesnt sound any better or louder then the GT 4.6L V8....
      • 5 Years Ago

      WHEN the freak will they put useful numbers on the GD gauges??? Friggin idiots. If we knew exactly what the charge voltage was, or wasn't, then maybe we would have a chance to replace the brushes on our alternators, before the brushsprings destroy the slip rings... It's a $20. fix for brushes vs. $300. for a new alternator.. Or why the hell do the stupid Ford HVAC engineers think it's ok to cycle the AC compressor on for a few minutes when it's 32 friggin degrees outside, just because I selected defrost and the engine is stone cold? STUPID ENGINEERS. And doesn't the front end look like the new camaro?? And independant rear suspension,, WOW,, my '71 240Z had that. As well as every Z car after that. American cars are cheap.. But I will still buy one because thats what I can afford right now,,, cheap..
