Prior to the horsepower drop, the Coyote V8 offered 480 hp in the Mach 1 and 460 hp in the GT. Most owners are unlikely to notice a significant difference, if at all. However, we can’t say the same for European Mach 1 customers. Due to that continent’s more strict emissions regulations, Ford was forced to cut output even more. it now stands at 453 hp.
The 2024 Mustang, meanwhile, will reportedly retain the V8 but it’ll include an electric motor to aid in both output and fuel economy. The first-ever Mustang hybrid appears to be a done deal. That’s not a bad thing and, hopefully, will help lure in a new generation of buyers.
