Yes, muscle car fan, the Mustang GT500 will still be equipped with a supercharger! To further whet your appetite for more muscle, the 2014 Mustang GT500 is expected to roll onto showroom in all its flexed glory by early 2013. But that’s not all. The 2014 Mustang GT500 will roll out not with its current 550 horsepower but with more to go head to head with its competitor Chevy’s Camaro ZL1.
The war between the Supercharger vs. Twin-Turbo has kept the online and publishing automobile communities busy for more than a year. While most rumors favored on the side of supercharger, the rumors about the Mustang GT500 getting a twin-turbo engine just won’t cease to end, until now.
The 2014 Mustang GT500 that will roll out early in 2013 will surely get more than 550 horsepower, which then confirms that its competitor, Chevy’s Camaro ZL1 will get more than that too. Perhaps a 570 horsepower?
Now while the 2014 Mustang GT500 will be released early, the fully redesigned Mustang GT500 won’t see the light of the showrooms until 2014. Engine design, lightweight materials, and design overhaul specifications are still all speculations with lots of suggestions thrown by experts and enthusiasts alike.
All ears are tuned in for the showdown between the 2014 Mustang GT500 and Chevy’s Camaro ZL1 but for now, let’s be content that the former will still carry a supercharger.
