2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Gets 760 Horsepower

Imagine being at the top of your game for 55 years and continuing to pull new tricks out of your bag after five decades. Ford has done it again with its iconic pony car, revealing that the new 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 gets 760 horsepower. Yes, you read that right: 760 horses.

The new Shelby GT500 will deliver 760 horsepower and 625 lb-ft of torque, making it the most powerful street-legal Ford vehicle ever put to the road. It also means that the supercharged 5.2-liter aluminum alloy V8 is the world’s most power-dense supercharged V8 engine currently in production.

Also offered with the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 is a segment-exclusive Tremec® TR-9070 DCT dual-clutch transmission, which offers superior control and quick shifting in all driving scenarios.

“In many ways, this is like having two transmissions in one,” said Pat Morgan, Ford Performance powertrain manager. “On one hand, it enables performance at the outer reaches of straight-line quickness with minimal torque interruption yet provides an incredible amount of finesse and control in track environments for maximum stability and predictability at the limits of lateral acceleration.”

Ford promises that the Shelby GT500 will offer a mid-three-second 0-60 mph time and will be able to go from 0-100-0 in just 10.6 seconds. To achieve this, Ford has equipped the new Shelby GT500 with performance-enhancing equipment such as 16.5-inch two-piece Brembo® rotors and larger Brembo® six-piston calipers, next-gen MagneRide™ suspension, and Ford Performance-spec Michelin® Pilot® Sport 4S tires.

Ford also offers two packages for the Shelby GT500: the Handling Package and the Carbon Fiber Track Package. The former adds a Gurney flap spoiler and strut top mounts. The latter adds Michelin® Pilot® Sport Cup 2 tires, 20-inch carbon fiber wheels, adjustable exposed carbon fiber GT4 track wing, and splitter wickers with integrated dive plane.

If you have a need for speed that you want to satisfy, look no further than the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500, which should be arriving at Shults Ford Lincoln Wexford later this year.

Ford Technology and Performance vs Competitors

Ford technology

You may have heard of Ford’s proudest accomplishment—the F-150 has been America’s best selling truck for 40 years. That accolade is thanks to a standard for continuous improvement and development that isn’t matched in other brand. Ford vehicles beat out competitors like Nissan, Hyundai, and General Motors in more ways than one. The entire Ford lineup is home to some of the best technology and performance on the market.

Some of the best Ford technology is centered around Ford’s SYNC® 3 infotainment system. Available in most of the Ford lineup, the SYNC® 3 system offers hands-free access to tons of important tools and entertainment features using natural voice command control. Access navigation, traffic information, and your favorite smartphone apps using an intuitive interface.

Compared to systems like NissanConnect or Hyundai Blue Link, SYNC® 3 is an effortless and versatile system. Let’s not forget to acknowledge the generous and intelligent safety features offered in each of the Ford vehicles. You won’t find active and passive securities as plentiful or as thoughtful in other vehicles.

Ford also tends to beat out competitors with its performance. Even just the mid-size SUV, the Ford Explorer, can tow up to 5,000 pounds, doing so safely thanks to features like Hill Descent Control™ and Adaptive Cruise Control.
