Do you guys think that our boss engine may be the standard engine in the new mustang GT coming in 2014?

They're the same animal just a different breed.BOSS 1276 said:The standard 5.0 in the GT and the 5.0 in the Boss 302 are two different animals.

I'm thoroughly enjoying the current breed and highly doubt the Boss engine will end up as the base engine in the next Mustang. The engine costs too much to build to be included as the base V8.
My 2 cents: Boss engine in a GT - no. Redesign in 2015 MY: I 've heard that several places as well. Redesign will be done with revised fuel mileage requirements in mind. V-8 will be gone. Twin-turbo V6 will replace it. 2015 Mustang will be smaller, lighter than current S197 iteration. But, it will probably be just as fast as what we have now if not faster and will get 32 MPG if you keep a raw egg under the accelerator pedal.cloud9 said:Correct me if I'm wrong, but last I read the 2015 (out in early 2014 like the Boss) will be the 50th anniversary model with a complete redesign. I'm about to pull the trigger on an order for a F-150 with EcoBoost to replace my '08 so I can upgrade to an enclosed trailer. I wonder if this new turboed direct injection engine design will become the norm with all the CAFE restrictions. It looks like they could make big power with this engine on the Mustang, but I'm not sure they can retain the muscle car sound.
