The 2015 Ford is still a couple of months away from showrooms, but Ford has answered the biggest question surrounding it: How much power does it have?

The big dog 5.0-liter Coyote V8 in the Mustang GT is rated at 435 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, up 15 hp and 10 lb-ft, while the base car’s 3.7-liter V6 loses 5 hp, for a 300 hp/290 lb-ft rating.
