2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 Creates 760 Horsepower

2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 In Glendale AZ

The all-new Shelby GT500–the pinnacle of any pony car ever engineered by Ford Performance delivers on its heritage with more than 700 horsepower for the quickest street-legal acceleration and most high-performance technology to date ever offered in a Ford Mustang.

Ford has been making the legendary Mustang for over 55 years, and even after all this time it still has the ability to blow us away. The all-new 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 launches later this year, and it will arrive as the most powerful street-legal Ford ever made, delivering 760 horsepower and 625 lb-ft of torque thanks to its supercharged 5.2-liter V8 engine.

Paired with a first-in-class Tremec® TR-9070 DCT seven-speed dual-clutch transmission, the new Shelby GT500 will be able to achieve a 0-100-0 in just 10.6 seconds and a mid-three-second 0-60 mph sprint when equipped with the available Carbon Fiber Track Package. That is, in a word, insane.

“The range of brute-force drag acceleration, seamless road shifts, and amazingly smooth shifts on the track further highlights how the soul of the Shelby GT500 is elevated in our most advanced Mustang ever,” said Ed Krenz, Ford Performance chief program engineer.

The 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 promises to be a dynamo in every sense, boasting 31×28-inch hood vents and an available carbon fiber track wing that both contribute to its powerful aesthetic and its unyielding performance.

The new 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 will be available later this year; if you want to get your hands on one — and why wouldn’t you? — call or email the sales team at Sanderson Ford.

Vehicle Preview: 2019 Ford Mustang

Ford Mustang

The 2019 Mustang Bullitt is making waves, accelerating us into the future with its exceptional power and performance. In April, the vehicle was made available to order, and Mustang enthusiasts have been flocking to dealerships ever since.

The 2019 Ford Mustang is a new Bullitt-edition model, predicated on the famous Mustang GT that appeared in the 1968 movie Bullitt. At 50 years old, the car still impresses, and the modern yet classic design of the new edition is sure to draw new Mustang owners as well as those who remember the film fondly. The film featured a 10-minute car-chase scene with the Mustang 390 GT at the center of it, cementing it as one of the most iconic vehicles in film history. It also helps that within the film, the cool Steve McQueen drove this Mustang around San Francisco’s streets.

The new Ford Mustang Bullitt offers ferocious power that is not for the faint at heart. It comes with a standard V8 engine that delivers a whopping 480 horsepower and 420 lb-ft of torque. Its engine — along with its other advanced equipment, including the Mustang Shelby GT350’s intake manifold — allow for the 2019 Mustang Bullitt to hit 163 mph. Its Dark Highland Green exterior color is another nod to film, looking both retro and trendy at the same time.

If your artwork is especially eye-catching, it could wind up on a billboard in a major U.S. city, starting this month and lasting through June. You can try your hand at the “Personalize Your Pony” experience by searching “Ford Mustang” on Facebook or visiting this link.

“Driving a Mustang has always been about standing apart from the rest,” remarked Corey Holter, Ford car group marketing manager. “This is a chance for Mustang fans everywhere to make their very own personalized pony and share it where potentially millions can see it.”

2017 Ford Mustang Sales Distinguish It Among Competitors

2017 Ford Mustang

When people talk about iconic American sports cars, some might mention the Chevy Camaro or the Dodge Challenger. None of them come close to the reputation and performance prowess of the Ford Mustang, however.

Last year, in 2017, the Mustang managed to stay one step ahead of the competition with the advent of the refreshed 2018 version. Ford Mustang sales continued to thrive amidst an industry-wide slump in sports car sales, thanks to the revamped 5.0-liter V8 engine, which enabled it to achieve the record of the fastest Mustang model ever built.

While the Ford Mustang itself saw a decline in sales between 2016 and 2017, it still stayed afloat when considering the industry’s overall sports car sales. For example, sales stats for the Chevy Camaro experienced a 6.6% drop; the brand sold 14,000 fewer vehicles than the Mustang. Meanwhile, the Dodge Challenger sold over 17,000 less units than the Mustang. In total, the Ford Mustang still managed to sell a whopping 81,866 vehicles in 2017.

Ford Mustang sales have taken a strong stance at the top of the industry ever since Ford introduced the next-generation model in 2014. Discover what makes the Ford Mustang so great for yourself, when you visit Sanderson Ford for a test drive.

Did The Rock Just Leak Design Sketches of a New Ford Bullitt?

From the Ranger to the Bronco, Ford has been bringing back, or plans to bring back, a lot of its classics as of late. And now it seems that another classic Ford model may be getting its glorious return: the Ford Bullitt. However, Ford may have been trying to keep that information under wraps.

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson – spokesperson for Ford – recently published a video on YouTube detailing some behind the scenes footage from the Ford studio, and in the background, viewers can see design sketches of what looks like a new Ford Bullitt.

You can check out the video here(or watch it below), on The Rock’s YouTube channel, to see for yourself. The sketches that appear to be of a new Ford Bullitt can be seen shortly after the 3:05 mark. What do you think?

Ford hasn’t yet commented on the video and the rumors, but we have to assume that they will make an announcement soon. Until then, we will find solace in the return of both the Ranger and the Bronco – iconic Ford cars that will soon be hitting the road in new configurations.

Sanderson Ford and Roush Performance Team Up To Raise Money For Military Assistance Mission

Sanderson Ford is at it again and this time, they are teaming up with Roush Performance for a double dose of American muscle in the form of the “Jack Roush Tribute” Mustang.  To be sold at the Barret-Jackson Auction, this Mustang has a very special purpose.

With the final auction price totaling to $175,000, not only will the proud owner have the 50th Anniversary Mustang AND the 30th Anniversary of Jack Roush’s Champion Motorcraft Mustang all in one, but 100% of the proceeds will be going to benefit the Military Assistance Mission (MAM).  MAM is an organization that “serves local Arizona military, their families, and wounded heroes with financial and morale aide”, as stated by the MAM CEO, Margy Bons.

Margy Bons started MAM in honor of her son, Michael Adam Marzano, who fought and died for our country in Iraq.

The 2015 Ford Mustang was donated by Sanderson Ford and made into what it is by the Roush Performance team.  With a Phase 2 Roush-charged 5.0-liter V8 power plant that boasts an incredible 727hp, courtesy of Roush Performance’s R2300 TVS supercharger, this Mustang has more horsepower per liter than any other American muscle care on the market.

And the fun doesn’t stop there!  The white exterior keeps it classy while the red interior gives it a dangerous feel.  Want to not only be the envy of all of your friends, but also help a great cause?  You’ve come to the right place!

Next-Generation Mustang Arriving 2020

It’s hard to become the best of the best, but Ford has managed to overcome obstacle after obstacle with its muscle car. Now the automaker is looking to revamp the iconic pony car less than a year after its latest redesign. Originally set to debut in 2022, the next-generation Ford Mustang is being pushed up to 2020.

The latest Mustang wasn’t redesigned too long ago, and a 2016 model currently starts at just over $24,000. Featuring better fuel economy and more power, the Mustang received an abundance praise from critics like Edmunds.

“Ford Mustang continues to distinguish itself as a muscle car with genuine crossover appeal,” the review stated. Receiving four and a half out of five stars, the Mustang is seemingly a hit. That begs the bigger question. Why a redesign so soon?

Unfortunately, no one seems to have an answer. Current speculation suggest fuel economy, emissions, or safety standards could be the culprit.

The report comes from an accounting and consulting group by the name of UHY Hacker Young. According to the report, the next-generation Mustang will begin production in May 2020. The current Mustang will cease produce in April that same year.

We here at Sanderson Ford are waiting on the edge of our seats for more information on the next-gen Mustang!
