Autoline correspondent Craig Cole takes us through the ins and outs of the newest Mustangs to hit the streets. The power and performance of the new beast is impressive, but the question remains: will it be enough to beat the Camaro that is handily outselling it in the market?

Ford's New F-150 V-8
You're already familiar with Ford's reborn 302. This 5.0-liter V-8 debuted
in the 2011 Mustang and now
the company is putting it in the F-150. For car duty it cranks out up to
412 horsepower and
has a screaming 7,000 RPM redline. That's great for a sporty coupe, but
less than ideal in a pickup. For truck duty Ford made a number of changes.

take a first look at the new Chevy Camaro, Dodge Challenger, and
2011 SMS 302 Mustang and Unveiling
It's been nearly a year since SMS Supercars first showed a rendering of
their proposed 460 Mustang.
And had nearly given up hope that it would ever come out. But sure enough,
Steve Saleen and the rest of his crew have been hard at work developing the
new SMS Mustang. That car,
now named the 302 Mustang
due to the V8's displacement change for 2011, was officially unveiled today
at the company's headquarters in Corona, CA.
Two separate versions of the 302 Mustang will be offered, including a
naturally aspirated base 4V model and a supercharged 302SC Mustang. The 4V will produce 440 horsepower thanks to
a few powertrain tweaks, while the supercharged model will boast 535 horsepower and 450
pound-feet of torque.
Both Mustangs will have a
slew of standard features including the new SMS body kit, hood with
heat-extracting grilles, 20-inch wheels and tires, upgraded suspension and
brakes, and numerous interior appointments including Alcantara seats, 200
mph gauges, short-throw shifter and more. The styling appears to be a mix
of the previous generation Saleen Mustang, also penned by SMS designer
Phil Frank, along with the new design language featured on the SMS 570
Challenger. We especially like the elongated rear end that helps hide the
awkward taillights, although we would probably do away with the massive
As you'd expect from a Steve Saleen product, each model will offer
impressive performance figures. SMS quotes a 0-60 mph time of under 4.5
seconds for the base 302 Mustang while the supercharged
version can perform the same task in just 4.3 seconds. A higher performance
model is also in the works, named the 351X Mustang, which we should learn more
about in just a few months.
Pricing for both models is just about what we would expect, which is fairly
expensive. The 302 4V starts at $54,990 while the 302SC Mustang will cost $64,990
