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.

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.

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.

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.

Ford Confirms 2019 Mustang Shelby GT500 With Over 700 HP

  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. Research 2018 ford mustang See Full Specs See Pricing The video appears to be computer rendered, showing a current-generation Mustang with serious hood louvers, and honking big spoiler, and a promise of over 700 horsepower.

A small off - roader will join the upcoming Ford Bronco SUV. The Explorer ST, Edge ST and forthcoming 700-horsepower-plus Mustang Shelby GT 500 continue the strong performance vehicle push at Ford that already includes the GT supercar, Focus RS and ST, Fiesta ST and F-150 Raptor.

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 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.

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.

Ford and Mahindra will develop an SUV and electric car together .
Ford has announced that it will co-develop an SUV with Mahindra, the Indian manufacturer of tractors, EVs, and most importantly for this story, trucks. The new SUV will use a Mahindra platform, and it's implied that Ford will do the heavy lifting on the rest of the vehicle. The two companies will also develop an electric vehicle, perhaps with input or branding with Mahindra's Pininfarina subsidiary. Research Research New Used New & Used Make Model It is unlikely that the SUV has anything to do with the upcoming 2020 Bronco or the recently-announced "baby Bronco".
