Default 2022 Ford Mustang With V8 Engine Losing 10 Horsepower

2022 Ford Mustang GT, Mach 1 Output To Drop By 10 Horses: Exclusive
The 2022 Ford Mustang GT and Mach 1 will take a 10 horsepower and 10 pound-feet of torque hit to their respective outputs when they debut early next year, sources familiar with the muscle carís launch have confirmed to Ford Authority. An exact reason was not given, but the slight alterations to the Ford 5.0L Coyote V8 output are being blamed on emissions requirements. The reduced output is part of several unannounced changes coming to the lineup, in addition to changes that The Blue Oval already announced.

2022 Mustang GT 2021 Mustang GT + / Ė 2022 Mustang GT
Horsepower 450 460 -10
Torque 410 420 -10

Output for the 2022 Ford Mustang GT will drop by 10 for horsepower and torque, regardless of transmission. For the upcoming model year changeover, GT Premium coupe and convertible are available with the updated California Special Appearance Package, which boasts revised cosmetic elements and the ability to be paired with the GT Performance Package.

2022 Mustang Mach 1 2021 Mustang Mach 1 + / Ė 2022 Mustang Mach 1
Horsepower 470 480 -10
Torque 410 420 -10

The 2022 Ford Mustang Mach 1 lineup will similarly feature a 10 percent output reduction across the board. By contrast, the 2022 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 will continue to solider on with the same power figures from 2021, as that specialty model features the supercharged Ford 5.2L Predator V8, not the Coyote.

Additionally, the 2022 Mustang lineup is receiving changes that have yet to be announced. For starters, seven new paint options will be available, although itís likely theyíre replacing some of the options currently available on the 2021 model. There will also be another all-new appearance package joining the family, which brings the amount of new appearance packages to three, in addition to the updated California Special package.

The Blue Oval previously announced the Ice White Edition Appearance Package, and the Stealth Edition Appearance Package, on two separate occasions. In addition to the news about the slight power reduction, Ford Authority can also report that 2022 Mustang order banks have opened. Deliveries of the updated Mustang are slated for Q1 2022. These substantial changes arrive at an interesting time, as the 2023 Ford Mustang is expected to be an all-new model.

Default 2022 Ford Mustang Is Now CR's Lowest Rated American Sports Car

2022 Ford Mustang Is Now CR's Lowest Rated American Sports Car
By Edward Snitkoff

Earlier this year, Consumer Reports published a list of the highest scoring American vehicles, and at the time, the 2021 Ford Mustang prevailed over the Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Challenger to become the publicationís highest rated American sports car. But circumstances have changed, and as Ford Authority previously reported, the organization recently concluded that the 2022 Ford Mustang is expected to boast well below average reliability, as owners have encountered issues with the pony carís transmission and infotainment system, among other problem areas. Unfortunately, due to the Mustangís poor showing on its most recent survey, Consumer Reports has downgraded the muscle carís rating, and its overall score is now lower than its chief American rivals.

Consumer Reports uses four primary factors when evaluating vehicles: road tests, reliability, owner satisfaction, and safety. With an overall score of 47 out of 100, the 2022 Ford Mustang comes in a full 29 points below what its predecessor earned a few months ago. Since the new model remains mostly unchanged from the 2021 version, it retained a road test score of 84 out of 100, a five out of five owner satisfaction rating, and benefitted from its array of standard and optional safety features, all of which boosted its score. Ultimately, the pony carís predicted reliability is responsible for the huge drop, coming in at one out of five, the lowest possible score. By contrast, the 2021 Mustang had a three out of five rating in that category.

The 2022 Ford Mustang now boasts a substantially lower score than the 2022 Chevrolet Camaro and 2022 Dodge Challenger. The Chevy earned an 85 out of 100 rating on its road test, a two out of five for predicted reliability, and a three out of five in predicted owner satisfaction. Despite its lack of optional safety features like automatic emergency braking, the Camaro received an overall score of 62 out of 100. Meanwhile, the Challengerís overall score is currently one point higher than its rival from Chevy, as it earned a 70 out of 100 on its road test, scored three out of five in the predicted reliability category, and received a four out of five predicted owner satisfaction rating.

This sharp reversal of fortune coincides with how Ford fared in the latest Consumer Reports reliability survey, which is conducted annually. As a whole, the Ford brand ranked below average when compared against the competition, while Lincoln finished dead last. Gloom and doom aside, Ford actually improved on its ranking from last year, as newly introduced vehicles like the 2021 Ford Mustang Mach-E received high marks from the publication for its above average reliability.

Ford should just blow up the Flat Rock facility and move Mustang assembly out of that state. That facility just can't put together cars to today's standards. Never has, never will.

I had an early build 2015 Mustang with the manual and 2.3L Ecoboost. It was a pretty good car, but build quality wasn't the best, with some misaligned panels and rattles.

I've got another 2019, also with manual and 2.3L Ecoboost and the Sync 3 with Apple Carplay infotainment and ADAS package. It's a noticeably better car than the old one. Zero issues or complaints.

It sounds like the V8s have been having problems.

As for the horsepower drop, maybe they added a particulate filter? They did add it to the 2.3 in Europe a few years ago.

Move production to Mexico, the build quality seems to be better.
