Our spy photographers just caught a new Ford Mustang GT prototype testing on the streets of Dearborn with covered fog lights and vinyl-wrap camouflage over the entire front clip up to the A-pillar including the front splitter, bumper and hood. The prototype is also wearing a mismatched white rear bumper.

Given everything we know about the S650 Mustang production timing, recent teasers and statements from Ford about the Mustang Hybrid and a new high-powered EcoBoost Mustang coming soon, we think it’s likely that this prototype shows a 2020-21 Mustang cosmetic refresh timed to coincide with at least one new 2.3-liter engine, and possibly even the electrified V8-Mustang Hybrid model.

Read on to find out why.

Car and Driver wraps up its long term test of a 2017 Mustang GT350, on which they put 40k miles (starting from brand new).

This is how they summarized the experience: It’s easy to forgive a car’s shortcomings when it’s this good to drive. Is the GT350 the quickest Mustang ever? Not even close. The grippiest? Nope. The most visceral driving experience of them all? Absolutely. Even in regular Coyote V-8 form, today’s Mustang is a special car. But the Shelby GT350 has the Voodoo, and it is magical.

A new report and discovery from a recent NHTSA VIN filing made by Ford reveals the company’s plans to once again offer three engine options for the 2020 Mustang when it begins production later this year.

The NHTSA filing lists not one, but two 2.3-liter I-4 engines — the first of which is the 310-horsepower EcoBoost serving duty as the current base Mustang engine. The second 2.3-liter EcoBoost shows the horsepower as to-be-determined, although sources of Hagerty claim this will be a new, high-powered 2.3-liter engine.

The publication goes on to speculate that the new engine could even produce as much as 350-horsepower like that in the Focus RS. Given the amount of shared engine components, this seems plausible.
