The 5.0 Mustang GT is back and it has rolled into the 2010 Detroit Auto Show 412-hp and a peak torque of 390 lb-ft. Finally passing the 400-hp out, the 2011 Mustang GT should compete fairly strong against the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS and the Dodge Challenger, which produce 426-hp and 425-hp respectively.
Transmission choices will be a 6-speed automatic, which helps deliver an estimated fuel-economy of 17/25 mpg (city/highway), or a 6-speed manual, which helps return 16/24 mpg.
Pricing and other details will be announced closer to launch date later this year.
