Ford Mustang’s V8 Will Lose 10 Hp and 10 Torques Next Year

The output drop isn’t massive, but Ford Mustang owners won’t be bragging about losing power


  • Emissions are to blame.

  • Ford’s magnificent Coyote V8

  • This will happen for all GTs and the Mach 1.


Emission regulations will eventually get the best of most if not all internal combustion engines. And frankly, if we get to keep naturally-aspirated V8 engines for a little while longer, this is a small price to pay. Aspiring Ford Mustang GT and Mach 1 owners might not agree, however.

The new output numbers for the 2022 Ford Mustang with the Coyote V8 will now be as follows: The GT will now offer up 450 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft., while the mightier Mach 1 will make do with “only” 470 horsepower and 410 lb.-ft. of torque. For those keeping track, the 6.2-litre-equipped Chevy Camaro boasts 455 horsepower. And in the other corner, the Dodge Challenger fitted with the 6.4-litre V8 is leads the pack with 485 horsepower.

“Changes were made to meet more stringent LEV III regulatory emissions requirements that resulted in a horsepower and torque reduction for the 5.0-liter V-8 engine,” Ford spokesperson Claire Carroll confirmed to Road & Track in a statement.

Speaking of Chevrolet, they recently had to “adjust” the 6.2-litre V8 in the C8 Corvette though they managed to leave output unscathed by the changes.
