Handy Graphic Shows How The 2018 Mustang GT’s 0-60 Time Stacks Up Against Other Mustangs

Sponsored Links

Earlier in the week, Ford at long last revealed horsepower and torque figures for the reworked 5.0-liter Coyote V8 that will be going in the 2018 Ford Mustang GT: 460 horsepower, and 420 lb-ft of torque. Those values represent gains of 25 horsepower and 20 lb-ft over the 2017 Mustang GT, thanks in large part to a new dual-injection system.

Just as important, that 460 horsepower will power the 2018 Ford Mustang GT to a 0-to-60-mph time of under four seconds, the automaker says – assuming it has the available 10-speed automatic and GT Performance Pack installed, and Drag Strip Mode is activated.

To put it bluntly: that’s damn quick. So quick, in fact, that it’s enough to make the 2018 Ford Mustang GT the quickest Mustang GT ever in the sprint to 60 mph, and one of the quickest production Mustangs of any sort.

To show you how it stacks up to some especially-quick Ford pony cars of yesteryear, CJ Pony Parts put together a handy graphic, which ranks the 2018 Ford Mustang GT third on a list that includes the 662-horsepower 2013 Shelby GT500 Mustang and the 526-horsepower Shelby GT350R. Notably, all nine Mustangs featured in the graphic were built for 2003 or later, so that 1968 Shelby GT500 KR that your neighbor’s got lying around? It won’t even come close.
