Introducing the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500


One of the things we love about the Detroit Auto Show is the unveiling of new and exciting vehicles. At Woodhouse Ford South, we think the Ford brand stole the show with the introduction of the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. The most powerful street-legal Ford car in history packs plenty of power and demands attention. 

Let’s start with the engine: the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is powered by a 5.2-liter aluminum alloy V8 paired with a supercharger. It produces a hair-raising 700-plus horsepower and 650 lb-ft of torque. The engine has been hand built, with an innovative structural oil pan that uses a patented active baffle system to direct oil to where it’s needed, while also reducing vibration and adding structural strength. 

"With its supercar-level powertrain, the all-new Shelby GT500 takes the sixth-generation [Ford] Mustang to a performance level once reserved only for exotics," said Hermann Salenbauch, global director, Ford Performance vehicle programs.

The V8 engine is paired with a quick-shifting seven-speed dual-clutch unit, that can shift into gear in less than 100 milliseconds. A next-gen active MagneRide suspension and Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires provide excellent handling and improved performance. 

Inside you’ll find a driver-centered cockpit and standard features such as a 12-inch LCD digital instrument cluster, premium features, as well as an advanced infotainment system. 

The 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 should be making its way to dealerships later this year.
