Ford may offer a third engine in the Mustang

Looks like the Ford Mustang is getting a new engine to slot in between the eco-friendly four-banger and the performance-oriented V-8. Everyone in Dearborn is keeping mum for now—a spokesman said only that the company “is always elevating Mustang and will share more exciting news this spring”—but Ford provided a glimpse of its plan with a recent National Highway Traffic Safety Administration vehicle identification number filing.

How Koenigsegg Made a Better Ford V-8

Koenigsegg revealed a 600 horsepower naturally aspirated engine at the Geneva Motor Show last year, but something about it looked very familiar.

GM’s new 6.6-liter small-block V-8 could be a treat for hot rodders

General Motors is bringing back the venerable 400-cubic inch V-8. That’s great news for anyone who lives by the rule there’s no replacement for displacement. Chevrolet plans to stuff a 6.6-liter engine based on GM’s generation-5 small-block architecture into the 2020 Silverado and Sierra HD. Although the big beast probably won’t appear under the hood of anything with sporting aspirations, GM is bound to offer it as a crate motor so enthusiasts can shoehorn it into anything they like.

While we shouldn’t hold our breath for a manual Supra since no concrete plans have been shared, we can dig into the BMW parts catalog to see whether a manual swap would be possible.

Ford May Be Cooking up a Small Unibody Truck Smaller than the Ranger

We’ve heard rumors of a possible small unibody pickup from Ford for a few months, and more details are now coming from sources within the automaker. Modern unibody pickups from Ford have generally been based on compact front wheel drive platforms and only sold in developing markets.
