Ford Mustang redesigned 2018 GT 5.0L engine wins Wards 10 Best Engines Trophy.

Fordís second award (this year) is for the redesigned 5.0L V-8 in the Mustang GT. This engine shares some of its voodoo with the Shelby GT350ís 5.2L V-8 that made our list two years ago, such as lightweight spray-in cylinder liners.

The 5.0L now adds direct fuel injection to existing port delivery and has a higher (7,500-rpm) redline, reinforced crankshaft and bumped-up compression ratio (12.0:1), enabling 460 hp and 420 lb.-ft. (569 Nm) of torque. (339 Kw / 556 Nm for Aus)

Paired to an all-new 10-speed automatic transmission, this muscle car is shockingly efficient as some of our editors routinely topped 24 mpg (9.8 L/100 km) despite our heavy-pedal testing. If saving the planet isnít your thing, then feel free to launch the Mustang GT from a standstill at wide-open throttle. Itíll reach 60 mph (97 km/h) in less than 4 seconds.
