Is the Next-Gen Mustang Getting a New Windsor V8?

Is the Next-Gen Mustang Getting a New Windsor V8?  | Shults Ford

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.

2018 Mustang Pony Package Offers Nostalgic Design Elements

The 2018 Ford Mustang is on its way, with a modern design and a slew of features that focus comfort and technology. However, many Ford enthusiasts are nostalgic for yesteryear. If that describes you, then you’re in luck; the new 2018 Mustang Pony Package adds design elements that reflect older models of the Ford Mustang in order to give it a more classic air while maintaining all the conveniences of owning the latest model.

Some of the changes to the design of the 2018 Ford Mustang when the Pony Package is applied include the traditional corral grille in front, an old-school tri-pony badge in the back, and a subtle stripe that runs around the sides of the Mustang. There are other changes that aren’t so much for the nostalgia as they are for completing the look – a bright beltline and window trim, 19-inch polished aluminum wheels, and floor mats embroidered with the famous Mustang logo.

The Mustang Pony Package will only be available to models with the turbocharged inline-4 engine, not the new and much-anticipated 5.0-liter V8. The 2018 Ford Mustang is slated to launch across the nation in October of this year. If you’re interested in owning the 2018 Mustang (whether equipped with the new Pony Package or not), then keep an eye on us here at Shults Ford Harmarville for more information.

King Edition 2016 Ford Mustang GTs Make A Good Thing Even Better

Could the new 2016 Ford Mustang GT get any better? Leave it to Richard Petty to make it so. He and his famed speed shop, Petty’s Garage, have pulled out the big guns to modify 300 Mustang GTs, taking the level of performance superiority and overall refinement of these incredible pony cars to a whole new level.

Though it might be hard to imagine how the 2016 Ford Mustang could look any better, Petty and his team managed to pull off a number of fantastic appearance-enhancing modifications. The Mustang GTs feature a custom rear diffuser as well as a custom, center-mounted single exhaust. A rear spoiler and embroidered head restraints both add a nice touch of flavor.

Of course, most people are going to be interested in the performance modifications and they are exciting, to say the least. The speed shop takes a factory Mustang GT, with a stock 5.0-liter V8, and adds a supercharger. A new cold-air intake and Magnaflow exhaust helps things along quite nicely. The result is a finely tuned, well-oiled machine that delivers 670 horsepower.

According to Richard Petty himself, these King Edition 2016 Mustang GTs are exactly how he’d mod them. But what does he know? He only won the NASCAR championship seven times.

Mustang Beats Batman and Superman in List of the Top Worst Passwords

We’ve got to start off by saying this: don’t use “Mustang” as a password—for anything. As nice as it is that you would think about the car when trying to protect your privacy, it just isn’t a good password.

Okay. That being said, it is pretty flattering. But why are we bringing this up? Every year, SplashData releases a list of the top 25 most common passwords found on the internet, which—by virtue of having been found—also makes it a list of the top 25 worst passwords.

Some are perfect examples of why you shouldn’t base your passwords on the patterns of your keyboard: “11111,” “abc123,” “123456,” and “qwerty” are classic staples that reappear every year. Popular sports such as “baseball” and “football” are also common reoccurrences.

There were a few new entries this time around, including “batman” and “superman.” But the one that really caught our eye at Shults Ford of Hamarville was “mustang,” which, amazingly, was ranked higher than the two popular superheroes. So while it makes for a terrible password, its appearance on the list is pretty telling of the iconic American car’s mass appeal!
