2017-2018 Shelby GT500 Mustang 104

The 2017-2018 Shelby Mustang GT500 is rumored to have the 5.2L v8 with twin turbos producing over 800hp. Many would like the GT500 to keep the 5.8L V8 but Ford put a ton of work in the 5.2L for the GT350. Most think Ford will be working off the GT350R & putting twin turbos on it. In the video above you see a nice concept of what the 2017-2018 GT500 would look & sound like if many are accurate on the 5.2L V8 turbo charged engine.

We found another 2017-2018 GT500 Mustang video but it supports the supercharged idea. There are so many articles & opinions on what the next generation GT500 will be like, here is another vision of the 2017 GT500 https://youtu.be/d-J2nLx7ME8

  1. I haven’t seen an official GT500 design released by Ford yet, but this is pretty friggin awesome. I really think they will be working off the GT350 with some added styling and turbos. This video pretty much paints a perfect picture of the 2017 GT500 with the exhaust note in the background.

  2. The 2017 GT500 is going to be a hellcat hunter with over 800hp. I really hope ford uses the 5.2L and twin turbo it. I originally thought they would go supercharger on the 2017 GT500 but I have read a bunch of articles that say turbo. Either way the GT500 is going to be amazing in 2017.

  3. I think this video is spot on as far as what to expect from the 2017 shelby Gt500. I really think based on some other specs and articles it will be a 5.2L twin turbo V8. Ford just put a ton of money into that engine, why not beef it up with turbos for the Gt500? Seems to make sense at least to me.

  4. The 2017 GT500 should be supercharged! What is all this turbo talk…Holy C^&p. The GT500 should come with a 5.2L V8 SVT Supercharged engine. If they would like to give the 5.8 great but turbo no thank you. I keep reading everywhere that the 2017 GT500 is going to be twin turbo, what’s up with that. For as long as I known the cobra/GT500 it’s been supercharged! Cool video but I really hope it’s not accurate.

  5. The video is pretty cool looking but I don’t think this is what the 2017 GT500 is going to look like. If they go turbo I’m going to be disappointed. GT500 = monster V8 supercharged.

  6. I don’t know what ford has planned for the 2017 GT500 but I have to say this looks sick. If they take the GT350 and throw a whipple supercharger on it that would be lights out. I keep hearing that they might go twin turbo 5.2L on the internet and that’s cool but there is nothing like the sound of a supercharger on a beast v8 by Ford. Whatever it is I am sure the 2017 GT500 is going to be a monster.

  7. The GT500 in 2017 is going to have a supercharger. It’s just not a GT500 without a supercharger! The turbo system might have more horse power potential but it just doesn’t seem right. I really hope ford doesn’t go twin turbo on the 2017 GT500.

  8. I keep reading that the GT500 is going to be a 5.0L twin turbo. I think that is ridiculous! The 2017 GT500 should build off the success of the GT350/GT350R. Ford should also stick with a supercharged engine for the GT500.

  9. So this is basically a GT350 with a black spoiler & an extra vent in the front? I think the GT500 looks great but ford is going to do more then that for the 2017 GT500. We all don’t even know if the GT500 is going to be released. I hear some reports that are saying Ford might be working on a new Mach 1 instead right now.

  10. The GT500 isn’t going to come out in 2017 maybe 2018. Ford is going to milk the sales of the GT350/R for another year or two before people start itching for the GT500 version which will most likely be similar to the video above. A twin turbo (Ecoboost) 5.2L GT350R AKA 2018 GT500. That’s my thoughts based on some of the material I have been reading lately.

  11. The more I keep searching around the more I realize there probably will not be a 2017 GT500 Mustang option. At this point it looks like Ford is very happy sticking with the gt350 and gt350R for now. As much as I would like to see a new 2017 GT500 it probably will not be happening. When the new GT500 does come out though I bet anything it’s going to be a game changer.

  12. There isn’t going to be a 2017 GT500. There would be real news or leaks by now if Ford had plans to do it. Maybe 2018 folks. The only Mustangs you will see on the road is the base, GT, GT-H & GT350/R in 2017.

  13. The video above about the GT500 is pretty awesome, it’s cool seeing a slide show with the exhaust note painting a better picture. That being said I really think if we end up seeing a 2017 or 2018 GT500 it will likely be a 5.2L supercharged engine producing 850-900hp with many of the GT350R features. The other video from the same creator of this 2017 GT500 https://youtu.be/d-J2nLx7ME8 is more accurate, in my opinion.

    I do hope we see one in production in the next year! I will not be holding my breath though.

  14. If Ford releases a 2017 GT500 do you think they will continue producing the Shelby GT350? They would likely stop I’m thinking as it would crush each others sales. It would be pretty awesome to see a 2017 line up of shelby GT500, GT350 & GT-H’s on the road.

  15. Google searching the new shelby GT-H and came across this. I have to say pretty cool even though we all know nothing official has been released by Ford on the GT500 for 2017. All the spy cam nonsense is BS. Everything I come across on the 2017 GT500 or Mach 1 is covered up 5.0 GT’s or GT350’s. This is a pretty solid video based on what is being published about the GT500 being a twin turbo.

  16. People actually think ford is going to come out with a gt500 in 2017! I doubt it. They’re going to ride the gt350 until sales start dipping, then they will come out with the top dog again. The GT500 is the cream of the crop but if Ford doesn’t have to make one they wont. The GT350 and GT350R are selling so there is little incentive to pull out the gt500 card now.

  17. No way the GT500 in 2017 is going to be twin turbo. This is going to be an 800hp supercharged 5.2L that’s going to blow the pants off the hellcat, gt350 and whatever else is on the road. It should look close to the GT350R so the handling will be top notch for the track.

  18. The 2017 GT500 is going to crush the hellcat, I think it will be twin turbo so the video to me is accurate. There are way to many reports of the new GT500 having a TT badge on it which means twin turbo. Unless ford is planning on releasing something other then a 2017 GT500 which I highly doubt.

  19. This is a pretty good 2017-2018 Shelby GT500 prediction. I’ve read up a little on what ford has planned for the new gt500 and I think they’re going with the twin turbo. Who really knows though how accurate the crap is on the internet though. This is a very cool video and hope this is close to what it will eventually look like.
