Today we get a glimpse at the 2020 GT500! There isn’t much we can take away from this graphic but we love seeing this huge grille opening to allow lots of cool air in. We do know it will be 700+hp as mentioned previously. ROUSH has released their new Jack Hammer which outputs 710hp using the new 2650 supercharger. We think the GT500 will most likely use this same supercharger setup but with more modifications to unlock more ponies.
One thing we have noticed is that the GT500 doesn’t have the refreshed 2018+ headlights on it. Why is that? The 2018 GT350 didn’t get a refresh this year which leads us to believe the GT500 is built off of the GT350 platform. (we don’t know if this is true or not) With that being said, it makes complete sense as to why the new GT500 doesn’t have the refreshed headlights. #VenomKillsDemons
The legend returns
Finally, Ford has released a teaser video confirming the legend will return in 2019! No official numbers have been released yet but they say it will be 700+hp (we already expected that). We are thinking between the 750 – 775hp range. The new 2.65 ROUSH supercharger is capable of 700hp easily on the stock ’18 platform. A smaller pulley and tune will put that same blower in the 750hp range without a doubt.
