Possible Ford Mustang GT500 Engine Drawings Leak

  Possible Ford Mustang GT500 Engine Drawings Leak How much longer do we have to wait to see the car?Over at the Mustang6G fan forum, member "zackmd1" posted what appear to be two wiring diagrams for the GT500's engine that he says Ford mistakenly posted instead of the actual wiring diagrams for the Mustang GT350. It might initially look like the GT350's 5.2-liter V-8, but if you look closer, it's definitely got a supercharger. And if you look even closer, you can see the Cobra symbol on the top of the engine.

We know now what we knew before: the blocky off - roader will be rad, and we’re dying for it to be real. Ford estimates that SUV sales could represent 50 percent of annual auto In addition to the new Bronco , the company will also launch a yet-to-be-named compact model with a focus on off-roading.

Ford made waves at its Dearborn, Michigan, HQ today, bringing in an auditorium full of motoring journalists to see what’s on offer for the next 24 months (and even slightly beyond). Newly minted CEO Jim Hackett kicked off these “Ford Uncovered” festivities, and underscored a sense of optimism about things to come soon, as well as about the long-term strategy as the company begins to compete in what promises to be a very different automotive landscape.

  Ford Confirms 2019 Mustang Shelby GT500 With Over 700 HP A brand new teaser from the Blue Oval says the super Shelby will return in 2019. It seems Ford is pulling out all the stops for its Mustang fans ahead of the 2018 Detroit Auto Show. Hot on the heels of a new Mustang Bullitt now comes an official teaser for the new Shelby GT500 Mustang, shown both on Ford’s Facebook page and YouTube account.

While Hackett’s statements on still-over-the-horizon car tech – ranging from cloud connectivity in car, to advanced artificial intelligence, to neural networks – were fascinating, it was after he introduced his deputies that things started to get interesting.

In short, the entire Ford lineup is set to undergo radical change between now and 2020, when the company will have replaced three quarters of its existing lineup. After today, we know that the upcoming slate of vehicles will be heavily focused in two areas: utility vehicles, and hybrids and fully electric cars and trucks. But additionally, the Ford brass also gave us updates on a new suite of standard safety features, a few very exciting performance products in the pipeline, and a note or two about the Lincoln brand.

While we’re patiently waiting for Ford to finally take the wraps off the 700-horsepower GT500 monster, the world’s best-selling sports coupe in the last three years is already gearing up for some major updates. First, the current generation of the beloved pony car will receive a hybrid powertrain scheduled to be launched at some point in 2019, so it should be available on the 2020MY.The major announcement was made Ford Group Marketing manager, Corey Holter, during an interview this week with The Detroit Bureau.

Ford Mustang GT 500 . Manufacturer image. The most exciting of those new models will be the Mustang Shelby GT 500 and an off - roader slotting below the upcoming Bronco ; read on for more.

We were also privy to several literal uncoverings, too. Sadly, as this event was more about whetting the appetite than satiating it, those were mostly off the record. Read on for info, tidbits, and teasers, but believe us when we say there’s a lot of interesting metal coming from the Blue Oval over the next two years.

Bronco! Other Small Bronco Thing! And Even More From ST

Of course your Motor1.com editors, and most of the other journos in attendance, were mostly there to have a look at the upcoming Bronco. Sadly, even off the record, this was a tease of a tease, as Ford pulled a sheet off a car that was… wrapped in yet another sheet (above). We know now what we knew before: the blocky off-roader will be rad, and we’re dying for it to be real.

Ford estimates that SUV sales could represent 50 percent of annual auto sales in the United States by 2020, so the company is shifting $7 billion away from car development and putting it into utilities. Among the new models, the next generation of the Escape and Explorer will debut in 2019.

2018 Roush JackHammer Ford Mustang is a 710-HP Pavement Pounder

  2018 Roush JackHammer Ford Mustang is a 710-HP Pavement Pounder Supercharged 'Stang also gets cosmetic upgradesWe know Ford is bringing out a Mustang Shelby GT500 with more than 700 hp next year, but for those that can't wait that long for a Hellcat-challenging Mustang, there's another option. The folks at Roush Performance have put their R2560 Supercharger in the Mustang to give it 710 hp and 610 lb-ft of torque.

New Bronco , Explorer and Escape are all parts of the new product push. A small off - roader will join the upcoming Ford Bronco SUV. The next Mustang Shelby GT 500 will pack more than 700 horsepower.

Purpose built off - roaders to compete against (mainly) Jeep with the typical features found in many Fords . And I think Ford would do it right. I might even give up my FJ Cruiser for the new Bronco . That silhouette looks damn good.

Plus, the company will put a big emphasis on making SUVs more exciting. In addition to the new Bronco, the company will also launch a yet-to-be-named compact model with a focus on off-roading. The teaser image (below) hints at a rugged, chunky design for the mysterious model. Ford describes it as “designed to win a growing number of people who love getting away and spending time outdoors with their families and friends.”

For more on-road-oriented performance, an Explorer ST will arrive before 2020 as a larger complement to the recently unveiled Edge ST.

Oh, and Ford is also beefing up, and freshening, its profitable and pervasive line of commercial vehicles. After updating the smaller Transit Connect at the Chicago Auto Show this year, and giving it a diesel engine option, look for the full-size Transit to get refreshed in the near future.

Mach 1 (Maybe) And Hybrids Everywhere

The sexiest piece of news on the electrification front was, sadly, mostly off the record. But Ford’s President of Global Markets, Jim Farley, did leave a pretty tasty trail of breadcrumbs. We’ve been tracking a project in development named (maybe) “Mach 1,” which seems to match one Farley statement. With a chuckle in his voice, the prez asked us to “close our eyes and imagine … a four-door Mustang SUV.” Oh, and followed that it would have an electric powertrain. No proper names or faces to report yet, but color us intrigued.

Ford’s Baby Bronco Rendered, Ready To Take On Jeep

  Ford’s Baby Bronco Rendered, Ready To Take On Jeep Ford imagines this compact SUV as being perfect for folks that enjoy the outdoors. During an event in March, Ford detailed some of its product plans for around the next 24 months, and the automaker dropped some major surprises there. For example, there's a Mustang-inspired crossover on the way, and the Blue Oval is preparing a rugged compact SUV, too. The automaker doesn't yet have a name for the model, so the Motor1.com teams simply refers to it as the "Baby Bronco" since the model seems to be a tinier interpretation of the upcoming Bronco revival.

Get your first look at the new Bronco , Mustang Shelby GT 500 , Explorer ST, and a yet-to-be-named off - roader .

Ford Teased The Bronco , Mustang GT 500 , And New Off - Roader . Our best guess is that Ford will probably drop an EcoBoost engine into the bay of the new Bronco . The company put one in its Raptor off - roader and GT supercar, after all.

Ford also promised an "all-in push" on hybrid models, and the initiative means an electric boost for many of the brands best-selling models. The Escape, Explorer, F-150, and Mustang will be available with hybrid drivetrains in the near future. While the electrified portion of the drivetrain will use some common parts, the Blue Oval intends to tune the performance for each model. For example, the F-150 Hybrid will put an emphasis on bountiful low-end torque, but the Mustang Hybrid will allegedly deliver “V8-like performance,” according to the company. Even the future Bronco will be part of this hybrid initiative.

One interesting nugget, repeated a few times, is that the F-150 Hybrid will be made available with a built-in generator. Company designers and product planners are trying to listen to customers more, and more quickly, and strapping expensive generators to the beds of their trucks is common F-150 owner practice.

Don’t Forget Shelby

Jim Hackett told us, “People love our products and we know that.” We’re pretty sure he was talking about things like the GT500 you can see in the teaser above. Sadly, showing you the image of this gaping, menacing, all-business Shelby grille is about all we can do at the moment. But we sincerely hope that we’ll be behind the wheel, while that mean mug is gulping down clean, racetrack-scented air, in the near future.

1967 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake is Back!

  1967 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake is Back! Limited edition continuation series of 10 starts at $249,995.Earlier this year, it introduced the 1968 Shelby Continuation GT500KR and today, the company re-introduced the 1967 Ford Shelby GT500 Super Snake. It was unveiled at Carroll Shelby International in Gardena, California.

Our test vehicle for the week is a new Mustang GT , and it’s safe to say Ford is gearing up for something big if this car’s exhaust is any proof. In a press release earlier today, we see a shadow of the new “ off -road small utility” that is undoubtedly the return of the Bronco .

Ford pulled the curtain off the new Bronco to reveal another curtain. We got a sneak peek at the new 700-plus-hp Mustang GT 500 , the new Bronco -- though that peek was covered -- and a quick glance at another new off - roader .

Standard Advanced Safety: Co-Pilot360

Ford will also follow the industry trend of making standard equipment out of previously optional driver assistance tech as a way to appeal to safety-conscious buyers. The company’s new Co-Pilot360 suite will include automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind spot monitoring with cross-traffic alert, lane keeping assist, automatic high beams, and a rearview camera. The system will be standard first in the 2019 Edge this fall but will eventually arrive on other models, including the F-150. It’ll come standard on 91 percent of the Blue Oval’s products by 2020.

More advanced safety tech will also be optionally available, like an adaptive cruise control system with stop-and-go traffic support and automatic lane centering. In addition, Ford will offer evasive steering assist for potentially avoiding an accident, and it’ll introduce post-collision braking, too.

Even commercial buyers will reap some of these safety advantages because Ford will make automatic emergency braking, lane departure warning, and driver alert system available on the E-Series, F-650, F-750 and F59 chassis models in the near future.

Before We Go, A Word From Lincoln

This was, first and foremost, a day for Ford proper, but we did get an inkling about what’s coming for the Lincoln brand as well.

At this point it won’t surprise you to read that “what’s coming” are more SUVs. Look for a new Lincoln SUV to be shown at the fast-approaching New York Auto Show. What’s more, no fewer than four additional utility models are said to be “around the corner.” Considering the rumors that the brash new Continental sedan may already be cancelled, we’re not totally shocked.
