    Hybrid Mustang Coming in 2020

    [​IMG]

    Are you guys ready for this? Ford announced today that the Mustang will be getting a hybid powertrain option added for the 2020 model year. Details are still coming out, but it will be interesting to see Ford is promising that it will deliver V8 power. That doesn't necessarily mean that it will have a V8 engine though.

    Still, there's a very good chance that Ford could take a similar approach as some of the global super-car manufactures and use the hybrid's electric motor to increase the overall performance of the car. This could be a huge performance boon if combined with an optimized turbocharged engine. By using an electric motor's ability to produce 100% of its torque output at 1 RPM you could potentially install a larger than typical turbo on an engine and use the electric motor to make up for low end turbo lag. There's also the potential that we may see this powertrain based around the upcoming 4.8L V8.

    Overall, I think this is a positive steep forward for the Mustang. It's going to open our favorite Pony car up to a market that is has never competed in, and it has the potential to increase performance in ways we have never seen in a Ford. It's certainly going to be interesting to see how this story develops as we get closer to the launch date.

    I figured this was coming. Innovation is one of Fords strengths, quality......... not so much. I wouldn't be surprised to see a few recalls and fires.

    Not sure how to feel about this...it's "pony" car for a reason, not a Prius. With that being said I understand where times are going, just not what I envisioned for the mustang.
