Busted! ‘Coyote’ is well and truly alive!!!

January 26, 2009

Remember the ‘Coyote’ V8 project of Fords’ we reported to you a few days ago? Well, as PickUpTrucks.com said, “We weren’t crying Wolf!”. Spotted in a Mustang mule the conclusion is made is that through even rumor, speculation & this spy shot, we think this engine is going to be a cracker!

Ford "Coyote" V8 test mule

Rumor & speculation are suggesting that this 5.0L aluminium clad (yay! no more cast-iron!!!) V8 will produce anything in the region of 400hp (300kW) with a matching 400lb-ft (540Nm) of torque – in it’s smallest / standard form mind you!. Due to replace all existing V8’s (read: sad to say, but, anchors) some time soon, things are looking up for Ford! With a bit of luck, this makes it’s way into plenty of Ford products around the gobe! (Yes, we are looking at you Falcon! 😉
