The Mustang GT500 won’t be going twin-turbo any time soon – it’ll stick with a supercharger, or at least this is what Motorauthority say they found out from a source. Beside this, the 2014 GT500 is due in early 2013 with even more power than the current 550-horse monster. After that, in 2014 we’ll get a redesigned Mustang. A lot of this information has been cast about as rumor or speculation, but this time is more real ant the Motorauthority’s source ties it all together and confirms it.
This “competition” – twin-turbo versus supercharger for the next GT500 has been raging on blogs, in magazines, and through fan forums for more than a year now. The weight of the evidence has largely rested with the no-turbo camp, but for some reason, the rumor just won’t die.
The new 2014 GT500 in early 2013, it will get a significant upgrade in power to fight the more important opponent – Camaro ZL1. That also serves as a sort of back-door confirmation that the ZL1 will debut with more power than the current 550-horsepower GT500, hinting that the 570-horsepower rumors have some merit.
The next GT500, when it arrives in early 2013, probably won’t get more than a superficial redesign. The full redesign for the Mustang line won’t arrive until sometime in 2014 for the 2015 model year. For now the details like weight, performance, size, or styling, are very few, but we’ll keep you in touch with al news that come.
