Leaked: 2011 Ford Mustang to get 315hp V6, 400hp V8


According to a self-proclaimed insider posting on TheMustangsource.com, news of Ford's power increases for the 2011 Mustang are true … but there's more. Calling himself "TheInsider" this individual has revealed that the 2011 Mustang V6 will boast an output of 315hp and displace 3.7-liters. This would put it just slightly ahead of the 300-ish horsepower V6 in the Camaro.

As for the big V8, it will in fact see the return of the 5.0, with the new motor making 400hp. And possibly even better than that news is word of a six-speed manual transmission to replace the current five-speed unit.

All this almost sounds too good to be true, were it not for the fact that these aren't exactly the first rumors we're heard on the matter and that Ford is desperate keep the Mustang at the top of its game. While Ford's other products are performing exceptionally in the marketplace, the Mustang has suffered as of late with, having been out-sold by the Camaro for three straight months.

Other bits of info that will be of interest to the Mustang faithful include news of a new track pack for 2011, an aluminum block for the 2011 Shelby GT500 and a special edition Boss model for 2012.
