2011 Ford Mustang GT - New 5.0 Ti-VCT V8 Promo
The 2011 Ford Mustang GT
features the new 5.0L Ti-VCT V8 engine. Packing 412 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of
torque, the engine produces 97 hp and 65 lb-ft more than the 4.6-liter V8
used in the 2010 Mustang
GT. Despite the added power, Ford projects fuel economy will rise to 17
city / 25 highway (up from 17 city / 23 highway) for models equipped with a
six-speed automatic transmission. The fuel economy rating for the six-speed
manual will remain unchanged at 16 city / 24 mpg highway. To squeeze out
the extra mileage, Ford equipped the car with Twin Independent Variable
Camshaft Timing (Ti-VCT), an Electric Power Assist Steering (EPAS) system,
and an additional rear decklid seal (to improve aerodynamics).

automaker BYD was alleged to have made a bid to purchase Maybach, although
this was denied by a Daimler spokesperson.
All signs point to either a massive overhaul, a shutdown, or a sale of
Maybach. Unfortunately, the facelifted models do not dissuade us from this
thought. There simply is not enough that has been done differently on the
new vehicles to make us believe they will suddenly see a spike in sales of
