Mustang Engine Downsize
I think that the next-gen Mustang should have smaller engines to go along with a lighter curb weight. The 3.5L Ecoboost v6 would be great, and a turbocharged 5.0 would be great for performance. The 5.8L 662hp monster is too big- maybe you should go back to the 5.4L and either turbocharge it or put a larger supercharger on it. Also, as it is inevitable, an inline 4 with over 300hp would be fine, as long as it got more than 34mpg highway and 22 city.

Legend Agreed on that! They should stop tinkering with the "horses", and get back to what the legend meaning of Mustang ( for those of us that really drive them ) and what it means. Wild, powerful horse. Best cruise and ride animal in the vehicle world. Wonder why they never did a " Stallion" edition?

JOHN QUINN The lack of HP lost the Lincoln to Cadilac, now it will lose the Mustang to Camaro
