2011 Mustang GT

2011MustangGTJustinZ

The 2010 model year Mustang was unveiled on November 18, 2008, prior to the Los Angeles International Auto Show. It went on sale in the spring of 2009. The 2010 Mustang is a revision of the 2005–2009 models, remaining on the D2C platform. The new Mustang's exterior is sculpted for a leaner, more muscular appearance. Specific changes to the exterior include a restyled Mustang emblem, a new headlight design with integrated turn signals, new slimmer side mirror design, a prominent powerdome hood to complement the car's muscular exterior, and revised three-lens taillights with LEDs that blink in sequence for turn indication. Additionally, the 2010 Mustang GT uses smaller fog lights than the 2005–2009 models though they are still mounted in the car's grille.

For 2011 an all new V8 engine is available complete with a new transmission and other upgrades. The Mustang GT's new engine is an all-aluminum 32-valve 5.0 L DOHC V8, codenamed Coyote. The 2011 Mustang GT marks the engine's first use in any production vehicle. While the new engine's displacement is similar to Ford's original "5.0", it is an unrelated design and instead shares more in common with the 4.6 L V8 and other modular engines that it replaces. The new 5.0 uses a DOHC head design like other modular engines and even shares its bore spacing and deck height with the outgoing 4.6 L V8. Differing the new engine from earlier modular engines, among other features, is its use of wider bore diameters (and a longer stroke relative to the 4.6 L V8 in particular), to allow the use of larger valves, and camshaft torque-actuated Twin-independent Variable Cam Timing (Ti-VCT). In spite of its more advanced design, the new engine weighs in at approximately 430 lbs about 10 lbs heavier than the Mustang GT's previous 4.6 L V8. Red-line has been raised to 7,000 rpm. Using premium grade, 91-octane or better gasoline, the new 5.0 L V8 can produce 412 bhp @ 6500rpm and 390 lb·ft of torque @ 4250rpm. Output of the 5.0 drops to 402 bhp @ 6500rpm and 377 lb·ft of torque @ 4250rpm when regular grade gasoline is used.

Like the updated V6 Mustang, the Mustang GT also gets new transmissions for 2011. Both transmissions are heavier duty versions of the same designs offered with the V6 Mustang; a Getrag/Ford MT82 6-speed manual transmission and Ford's 6R80 6-speed automatic transmission. The 6-speed manual transmission comes with a 3.31:1 rear axle while 6-speed automatics get a taller 3.15:1 rear axle. Combined with its new, more efficient V8, the new 6-speed transmissions contribute to an improvement in fuel economy in the 2011 Mustang GT over its counterpart from the 2010 model year.

The Mustang GT gains the same non-powertrain related upgrades that standard V6 Mustangs get for 2011. Other, new features exclusive to the 2011 Mustang GT include "5.0" fender badges replacing the "GT" badges used previously, an optional Brembo Brake Package taken from the Shelby GT500 (comes with unique 19-inch wheels), and suspension enhancements. Convertible versions of the Mustang GT in particular received a front strut tower brace, stiffened cross members, and other enhancements resulting in a 12% increase in structural rigidity compared to 2010 Mustang GT convertibles. All 2011 Mustang GT's with 19 inch wheels (brembo brake equipped, California Special, etc.) also get the strut tower brace and stiffened cross members.

This 2011 Mustang GT is loaded with all the goodies including the Brembo Brake package and unique 19” wheels. When this vehicle came to us it had been hit on the front right hand side of the vehicle. After removing the damaged parts we installed a new Ford fender, front bumper, and headlight assembly along with a fiberglass Shelby style hood. After doing all the necessary body work and prepping the parts for paint they were painted with our DuPont BC/CC system. After all the parts were painted and cleared they were prepped for the silver and red stripes. The trunk lid and rear bumper were removed and all parts were painted separately. After all the paint work was done the vehicle was re-assembled, wet sanded and compounded.
