All 2022 Ford Mustangs fitted with the optional 5.0-litre V8 engine come with less power than before – making fans a little upset.

It has been confirmed by Ford that the 5.0-litre Coyote engine V8 will make 10 fewer horsepower and 10 fewer pound-feet of torque in both GT and Mach 1 models than before, regardless of transmission.

Ford hasn't released the exact modifications that caused this decrease in power and torque, but it's likely due to stricter emissions requirements.

Nevertheless, the 2022 V8 Mustang will still come with a lot of horsepower and is set to be rated at 450 horsepower and 410 lb-ft of torque in the GT and 470 horsepower and 410 lb-ft in the Mach 1.

The base EcoBoost turbocharged 2.3-litre inline-four has not been affected and will still make 310 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque in its base form or 330 hp with the optional Performance package.

However, if power is a really big deal to you then you could always opt for the Shelby GT500 which is powered by a supercharged 5.8-litre V8 producing 760 hp and 625 lb-ft of torque.

  • No problem at all. Let Ford decrease the power to get through emissions and we can tune them :)

  • Doesn’t really matter to be honest. Other than a decent sized V8, the Mustang has always been all looks and no show.

  • No biggie for now, 10 hp and 10lb ft is hardly a lot. The 'Stang will still be brash, loud, fast, great to drive and still great to look at.

  • Interesting note, the Mach E GT is now the second most powerful Mustang next to the GT500, further agitating those who just can't seem to wrap their heads around that vehicle carrying the Mustang name 😅
