Ford Will Soon Launch the 5.2-litre Predator V8 Crate Engine

Ford will add the Predator V8 to its already complete family of crate engines


  • This is the engine currently doing business in the Mustang Shelby GT500.

  • Output in the Shelby is 760 horsepower and 625 lb.-ft. of torque.


Like FCA and GM, Ford loves to make its engines available for its fanbase. And the fans can’t seem to get enough of them. Ford alone offers a number of pushrod V8 as well as modern mills like the turbocharged 2.3-litre EcoBoost 4-cylinder (Focus RS, Ranger, Mustang), the Coyote 5.0-litre V8, and the Godzilla 7.3-litre V8. To this list we can now add the Predator V8.

The 5.2-litre Predator V8 is no less than the engine that supplies power to the most muscular street-legal Ford production car ever, the 2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500. The supercharged cross-plane crank-ed V8 produces 760 horsepower and 625 lb.-ft. of torque, and you will soon be able to drop one in your 1977 Mustang II, if you wish.

Ford Authority had a chat with Mike Goodwin, Ford Performance Product Manager of engines, drivetrain, and calibrations during the SEMA360 show and he had this say: “We’re in early control pack development right now to be able to run the engine. It’s a little simpler setup because it’s not full DI like the Gen 3 Coyote is, but we are working on that.”

According to the story, there currently is no set launch date or price for the Ford 5.2-litre Predator V8 crate engine.
