You know that the Ford Mustang is a fast car. That’s one of it’s biggest selling points: affordable horsepower. There are a lot of different Mustang models, though, and you may still wonder which one has the most horsepower.
Being precise, there are 10 different Ford Mustang models available when you factor in engines and the choice of a Fastback or Convertible body style. However, the engine is the most important factor if you are searching for the best possible power.
The Mustang Engines and Output
Whether you choose the V6 Fastback or V6 Convertible, you will get a 3.7-liter V6 engine to power your drive. This is the base engine on the Mustang, but even so, it has an incredible amount of horsepower. Expect 300 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 280 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm.
Keep in mind that this engine has a compression ratio of 10.5:1 and gets up to 21 mpg combined.
Opting for a Ford Mustang model with the 2.3-liter EcoBoost® engine will increase your engine output slightly but also improve fuel economy to 24 mpg combined. This engine delivers 310 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 320 pound-feet at 3,000 rpm, and it has a compression ratio of 9.5:1.
Note that this engine requires 93-octane fuel.
Moving up in power, you get the Ford Mustang GT with 435 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 400 pound-feet at 4,250 rpm. This engine should be used with premium fuel. It is a 5-liter V8, and has a fuel economy of 18 mpg combined.
Mustang Shelby GT350
There is a tie for the most powerful Ford Mustang of the Shelby GT350 and Shelby GT350R models. These are the Ford Mustangs with the most horsepower thanks to their 5.2-liter flat plane crank V8 engine. While these engines won’t win any awards for fuel economy, they are guaranteed to deliver thrills. Use premium fuel and enjoy 526 horsepower at 7,500 rpm and 429 horsepower at 4,750 rpm.
