At last, Ford revealed the official numbers delivered by the engines used on the 2015 Mustang. As a result, we found out that the 5.0-liter V8 engine generates 435 hp and 400 lb-ft (542 Nm) of torque, which makes the 2015 Mustang GT more powerful than its rivals, the Chevrolet Camaro SS and Dodge Challenger.

Meanwhile, the 3.7-liter V6 engine was rated at 300 hp and 280 lb-ft (406 Nm) of torque. What’s interesting is that the V6 engine is actually less powerful than the version that powers the 2014MY Mustang, which delivers 305 hp.

Still, the new star on the 2015 Mustang is the 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine that develops 310 hp and 320 lb-ft (433 Nm) of torque. Each engine can be ordered with a manual or automatic transmission in order to suit any individual driving style.

Ford’s new Mustang will go on sale later this year and will carry a starting price of $24,425. For this amount of money you get the model powered by the 3.7-liter V6 engine. If you want the new EcoBoost engine, you will pay $25,995.
