Is the Next-Gen Mustang Getting a New Windsor V8?
Ford is planning to unleash its seventh-generation Ford Mustang within the next few years, and it might have a new trick up its sleeve. The next-gen Mustang could get an all-new Windsor V8, according to the head of Canada’s auto labor union.
After negotiating a new deal between his organization and Ford of Canada, Unifor President Jerry Dias revealed that the Windsor Engine plant will build a new 6.X-liter engine. He later spoke with the media and said he believes this engine will be a 6.8-liter V8 offered in the F-150 and Mustang.
According to Hagerty’s Sajeev Mehta, this could be a “de-stroked 7.3 Godzilla,” referring to the enormous pushrod 7.3-liter V8 offered with the new Super Duty. He suggests this would use aluminum rather than an iron block and overhead valves in place of overhead cams. In practical terms? This new Windsor V8 for the next-generation Mustang could be an absolute beast.
We have a while to wait before we figure out what’s in store. Ford will continue to make the current, sixth-generation Mustang through 2022, so there are still a few more years to enjoy the latest version of our beloved pony.
And it’s still going strong, too. Not only is the Shelby GT500 the most powerful street-legal car Ford has ever made, but the legendary automaker is bringing back the iconic Mustang Mach 1 in spring of 2021. Ford is also growing the Mustang stable with the Mach-E, the all-electric performance SUV available now at Shults Ford.
