It is likely that the Ford Mustang will be sold with a 6.8-liter V8 engine according to the latest report.
In September, the Canadian union Unifor negotiated a deal with Ford. During a press conference, Unifor President Jerry Dias mentioned the 6.8-liter V8 that Ford will build at their Windsor plant. In a later press release, Unifor confirmed that Windsor would indeed be building the new engine but did not confirm capacity, simply referring to the “6.X L engine”.
In addition to making a lot of mention about the new V6.8L V8, Unifor president said that the engine will be used in Mustang and F-150 models.
Not surprisingly, Ford has not denied or confirmed that this engine will be used on the Mustang, only stating that it does not comment on “speculation”. Of course, information directly from the Unifor president is not just “speculation.”
As a matter of fact, the statements from Dias are just “an error”, but according to Muscle Cars and Trucks, this is not the first time deals have been disclosed prior to their official release.
Since the new 6.8L V8 will be made in the Windsor region, it will most likely involve a larger 7.3L Godzilla V8 made in the same location and sold exclusively with the Ford Super Duty. It is said that a 6.8L V8 engine will power a new Mustang S650 variant that could debut in 2022.
