The 2018 Ford Mustang saw quite a list of improvements. Most notably, the engine increased in horsepower, torque, and redline RPM. Now with 460 horsepower, 420 lb-ft of torque, and 7,500 RPM, surely the new Mustang is quicker to 60 mph than its predecessor! But... it isn't. Motor Trend has tested both cars at 4.4 seconds. Why?
