Ford Mustang Coyote V-8 plans to lose 10 HP due to carbon emission regulations in 2022

Ford authorities have reportedly announced that they are reducing the Ford Mustang Coyote V-8 up to 5 Liters, which will automatically decrease a total of 10 horsepower and a much fewer torque up to 10 pound-feet.

The modifications are expected to be applied to GT and Mach 1 models. However, Ford did not share information about the improvements in the modifications of the Ford Mustang Coyote V-8 that caused a decreased power. Although, according to the rumors over the internet, the factors that influenced the torque and horsepower output are stricter emission requirements.

As per sources, the Ford Mustang Coyote V-8 will produce 410 pound-feet of torque and 450 horsepower in GT and a 470 horsepower and 410 pound-feet torque in Mach 1 in the 2022 version.

This is because of the continuation of the strict emission regulations across the auto world. The CO2 emissions regulations are becoming common for the auto industry and Ford isn’t the one who is experiencing these limitations as the reports have been shared earlier this year. 

Despite the tweaks suggested, Ford maintained to retain the horsepower and torque of its V-8 engine, but now the modifications will be witnessed in the 2022 model. 

Spokesperson Claire Carroll stated in an interview;

“Changes were made to meet more stringent LEV III regulatory emissions requirements that resulted in a horsepower and torque reduction for the 5.0-liter V-8 engine.”

450 hp and 410 lb-ft with Mustang GT and 470 hp and 410 lb-ft. are still respectable figures in contrast with Dodge and Chevrolet.

Ford officials are still expecting that the customers will accept a less powered product from a brand known for producing high-power engines.

However, the acceptance problem isn’t seen at Blue Oval in Europe where the Ford Mustang Coyote V-8 makes just 444 horsepower and 390 lb-ft of torque.

Although, orders for Ford Mustang Coyote V-8 2022 are open nowhere the deliveries are expected to be placed in the first quarter of next year.
