2010 Ford Mustang GT

The 2010 Chevrolet Camaro outsold the 2010 Ford Mustang two months in a row – and that may be do to the fact that the Camaro offers more power for the price you pay. The base V6 2010 Mustang produces 210-hp while the base 2010 Camaro makes 306-hp. On the other hand, the V8 Mustang GT makes 315-hp while the V8 Camaro SS makes 426-hp.

Well, Ford isn’t wasting anytime and is already working on upgrades for the 2011 Ford Mustang, prototypes of which were recently spotted at the GingerMan Raceway in South Haven, Michigan.

According to CARandDRIVER, the prototypes were wearing Pirelli P Zero Corsa r-compound tires, which most likely means that the 2011 Mustang GT will come with an upgraded Track Pack.

It was recently reported that the 2011 Ford Mustang will get a high-revving 3.7L V6 that should produce 273-hp. Other rumors state that Ford may throw in its 3.5L V6 EcoBoost making 340-hp. The 2011 Mustang GT is expected to carry the new Coyote 5.0L V8 that is currently being tested in the United States. The engine is expected to produce 402-hp with a maximum torque of 398 lb-ft.
