A Smooth Power Line

2024 Ford Mustang GT Dyno Test

Last week, 2024 S650 Ford Mustangs began shipping from the assembly plant to dealerships nationwide. After many had to wait for Ford to complete quality vehicle inspections, we’ll finally start seeing this beautiful muscle car on the streets for what remains of the summer. Since customers have been seeing a slow death of the Legendary V8 engines, many buyers have opted for the option on the new Mustang. It didn’t take long for one such customer to bring the latest pony car to get tested on the dyno to see if the fourth-generation 5.0L Coyote V8 really makes 486 horsepower from the factory.

After getting hit with some smooth V8 engine sounds from the 2024 Ford Mustang GT, we get a look at the power rating of the car, and just like the Gen 3 Coyote engine, the power curve appears to be relatively smooth as the engine ramps up the rotations. Unfortunately, it’s difficult to see the numbers on the chart in the video, but Ford’s power claim is pretty accurate. Of course, we can see in the video that the power hasn’t fully reached its potential due to how new the car is. To be one of the first to place this beast of a car on the Dyno, Middleton Motorsports sacrificed some of the power numbers that would appear as the car is driven more and surpasses the 1,000-mile mark.

The power peaks at around 7000 RPM, though it’s clear they aren’t pushing the car too hard as they don’t want to add excessive wear early on. It may be a little-known fact, but many manufacturers don’t recommend pushing the car past 4000 RPM until after the first couple thousand miles are put on the engine. That said, Ford’s decision to have not one but two throttle body inductions and a dual intake that sucks in air through the distinctive openings at both sides of the grille appears to be paying off well.

The design of the fourth-generation 5.0L Coyote engine provides plenty of power for customers to enjoy and room for more if they choose to add to it. Not to mention that the entire thing is up to code with current emission standards. Overall, as the fastest Ford Mustang GT yet, there’s plenty of reason to be excited about what will be the last V8-powered muscle car.

Zac's love for cars started at a young age, after seeing the popular Eleanor from Gone In 60 Seconds. From there, fascination and enthusiasm blossomed and to this day the Ford Mustang remains a favorite. His first job started out detailing cars, but also provided the opportunity to work on restoration including an 1968 Ford Mustang, Pontiac Firebird, and a C3 Corvette, though he left that job before further work and experience could be had. From there, he was a detailer at a car dealership before quitting that job to try and finish college.

Much of his free time while studying was spent watching YouTube videos regarding new cars, or off-roading. 4WD247 is a personal favorite channel which rekindled a dying flame in car enthusiasm, now tailored towards trucks and SUVs and the fun that can be had building up an overlanding rig, and going on adventures, though, that chapter remains unwritten for the time being.
