2020 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 Exhaust Modes – Road & Track Magazineby Road & Track US
Ford brought the 2020 Mustang Shelby GT500 to New York for a quick visit after its debut at the 2019 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. We didn’t get to drive it, but we did get to hear what that supercharged 5.2-liter V8 sounds like in each of its four exhaust modes.
Like lesser Mustangs, the GT500 has four exhaust modes: Quiet, Normal, Sport and Track. We got to hear it rev in each mode, inside and outside the car. Our verdict: You’re gonna want to keep it in Track mode at all times.
While we still don’t know exactly how much power the Shelby GT500 makes, we know one thing for certain: It’s gonna sound magnificent. Ford Performance manager Jim Owens told us that engineers are still at work doing final calibration, and that Ford will announce final power figures in the coming weeks. Judging by sound alone, we suspect this supercharged beast will have some healthy horses.
