Canadian 2022 Ford Mustang GT Will Also Get Power Reductions

Back in October, Ford Authority exclusively reported that the 2022 Ford Mustang GT and Mach 1 will take a 10 horsepower and 10 pound-feet of torque hit to their respective outputs when each launches early next year. The reason for this reduction is unclear, but the slight revisions made to Ford’s 5.0L Coyote V8 were blamed on more stringent emissions requirements, which means that the 2022 Ford Mustang GT and Mach 1 will be rated to produce 450 horsepower and 410 pound-feet of torque, versus 460 horsepower and 420 pound-feet, as was the case with the 2021 model, changes that Ford Authority details in the video below. Now, Ford Authority has confirmed with Ford Motor Company Canada spokesperson Megan Joakim that the Canadian version of the 2022 Mustang GT will also receive the same power reduction.

This change is one of several coming to the 2022 Ford Mustang, as Ford Authority has reported in recent weeks. That includes the addition of a trio of new packages starting with the Ice White Appearance Package, which gives buyers the chance to spec out an all-white pony car for the first time in decades. A new Stealth Edition Appearance Package and Coastal Limited Package will also join the lineup for 2022, along with a revised California Special package. Additionally, the 2022 Mustang is losing its Carbon Sport Interior Package.

As Ford Authority reported last month, 2022 Ford Mustang production will begin at the Ford Flat Rock Assembly Plant on January 3rd, 2022, though this date is subject to change, especially in light of ongoing supply issues including the semiconductor chip shortage. 2022 Mustang order banks are already open for all models, including the Shelby GT500.

The 2022 Mustang hasn’t launched just yet, but the newest pony car recently received a below-average predicted reliability score from Consumer Reports that caused the pony car to lose its coveted “recommended” status from the consumer organization.
