Rumour: 2023 Ford Mustang to get a V8 hybrid powertrain

The hybrid Mustang could also feature a 4WD system.

The next-generation Ford Mustang could come with a hybrid powertrain. According to reports, Ford has been developing a hybrid powertrain for the new-gen Mustang, scheduled to debut in 2023.

Reports suggest that Ford could offer two petrol-hybrid options - the first is based on the 2.3-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder unit while the other is based on the 5.0-litre V8. If the rumours do materialise, the 2023 Ford Mustang will be the first model from the brand to pair an electric motor with a V8 engine.

The hybrid Mustang could also feature a 4WD system with the V8 engine powering the rear wheels, while the electric motor will power the front wheels.

Further to this, the new-gen Mustang is also expected to feature Ford's 10-speed automatic transmission unit; built from the ground up. The new transmission unit is already in use on models such as the F-150 hybrid, Bronco, Ranger, Explorer and Lincoln.
