    I was thinking what if these are the front wheels. Axle shaft may mean AWD!

    I don't think that's an axle shaft..

    I guess I could be wrong.

    The picture of the caliper and rotor with the hand, the hub is splined and that plastic hanging down looks like a belly pan so could be AWD

    They have been using splined hubs from other cars for a while. I think the GT350 used one from a Lincoln or an Explorer.

    Portions of the GT350/R hub were sourced from a HD Explorer application. It was cheaper to leave them alone than to rework them when it really wasn't necessary.

    That makes sense, like most people here I figured it wouldn’t be AWD but saw the splines and started thinking.

    No way they could fit AWD in the current platform nor would it fit the current price point.

    Glad to see some sort of info !!
    5.2 blown with the 2.6 blower would be some serious horsepower......SID has some info.
    I hope to see 750+ Horsepower.

    By buddy just bought a 350 the other day. The performance vehicle manager guy said 5.2 crossplane crank, and the 2.6 TVS.. Everything we pretty much already know.. Should be in the 750-800hp range as well.

    Ok, so it will have plenty of power, hopefully not too nose heavy, maybe the best suspension ever in a GT500. If they can keep the price in line with the ZL1, it may be a winner.

    It’ll be more than the ZL1, be more in demand, and people going to cry about ADMs and how Ford are a bunch of jerks to “let” it happen
