I must say the The Mustang 5.0 engine pays homage to the original 5.0, delivering 420 horsepower and 390 lb.-ft. of torque. The powerplant features twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT), an aluminum engine block and cold-air induction to help improve power. You will not be disappointed with how much horsepower this engine will produce.
But that’s only for starters. The 5.0 also has a compression ratio of 11:1 and cylinder heads designed to optimize airflow. Every part under the hood, including the high-energy coil- on, plug design, is designed to work in harmony. This lets the muscular engine breathe efficiently and deliver 100 percent exhilaration every time you hit the gas. And then there’s the exhaust delivering a distinctive throaty roar.
HID Headlamps have some intense power. The HID headlamps feature a gas bulb that lasts longer and produces a whiter, brighter, stronger light than conventional headlamps. Standard on all Mustang models.

The available Shaker Pro Audio System also includes an in-dash single-CD/MP3 player and eight speakers and one subwoofer. The sonic boom from this system comes courtesy of the trunk-mounted subwoofer. A unique mounting enclosure keeps the subwoofer out of the way to maximize the amount of useable trunk space. The Shaker Pro Audio System is optional on Mustang GT Premium and Shelby GT500.
To add to the wow factor, the engineers installed ground effect lighting. Installed under the mirrors, the LED lights shine on road a perfect mustang logo.
