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).
2011 Maybach 62 Facelift
Daimler's most luxury automotive brand was responsible for just 200 units sold in all of 2009. It is for this reason that rumors have repeatedly surfaced that the Maybach brand is up for sale. Most recently, Chinese 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 the car.
