Hear The 2015 Ford Mustang GT Rev Its V-8: Video

Follow Viknesh

Ford’s all-new, sixth-generation Mustang is now just a couple of months away from hitting the showroom floor, in base, EcoBoost and GT trim. Here we have the latter, which revs its 5.0-liter V-8 engine in front of the crowds at a recent event organized by performance retailer AmericanMuscle.

Loping along at idle like it has a nice, lumpy cam—though that's likely an intentional tune from Ford's engineers, a la the Boss 302's unique ECU tune—the 2015 Mustang GT opens up with a throaty roar when goosed. Bassy, loud but not obnoxious, and thoroughly American, the 2015 Mustang GT's engine has a sound that suits the car's nature.

That engine, by the way, has been confirmed to develop 435 horsepower and 400 pound-feet of torque. It can be paired with either a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic, and will spin the rear wheels only.

AmericanMuscle’s event, held in Mohnton, Pennsylvania last weekend, helped raise a little over $36,000 for the Special Olympics. It’s also where Vaughn Gittin Jr. announced the 2015 Ford Mustang RTR, which will be available to order from the AmericanMuscle website when the car—and its parts—go on sale next January.
