Pricing for the V-6 and V-8 2011 Ford Mustang was revealed today. The 3.7-liter V-6 will start at $22,995 (including $850 for delivery). According to Automotive News, the Mustang GT, featuring Ford’s all-new 5.0-liter V-8, will sticker for $30,495 including delivery.
Stepping up to the premium trim will bump that price to $33,695 including delivery. In recent years, the premium included leather seating with power adjustments, an upgraded sound system, and Sync. We’d expect similar equipment for 2011. Chevy does have a leg up, though, in the V-8 category. Its 6.2-liter SS produces 426 horsepower and 420 pound feet of torque, while the 5.0-liter Mustang makes 412 and 390 respectively. The Mustang GT does get 26 mpg, beating the Camaro’s 24 mpg figure.
Earlier this week, we heard that Ford may soon increase the power ratings of its new 6.7-liter Power Stroke V-8 diesel to beat General Motors in horsepower and torque numbers. With today’s news, the blue oval takes another jab at GM by pricing its newest Mustang below the Camaro. Ford will introduce its newest V-6 Mustang with a price besting the 3.6-liter V-6 Camaro by $535, which retails for $23,530, delivery included. Not only does Ford win in pricing, but also power and fuel economy. The most fuel-efficient Mustang achieves 31 mpg highway, while the Camaro returns 29. The new V-6 Mustang also edges out the Camaro in power, with 305 horsepower and 280 pound feet of torque compared to 304 and 273 respectively. Though Ford is currently leading the power war, GM may soon rework its V-6 to eclipse Mustang’s numbers.
The all-new 2011 Ford Mustang is due to hit dealers next month. Both V-6 and V-8 models will available at release.
