2011 Ford Mustang V-6

We've been planning to bring you word on the 2011 Ford Mustang in a few weeks, when the 2010 Detroit auto show kicks off.

We can't wait--because Facebook and Twitter can't wait, from what we can see. The juicy details on the '11 'Stang have broken through the lacy filigree of a news "embargo," so here's what we know.

The 2011 Ford Mustang returns to the hallmark V-8 displacement of the recent past. Yep, in shorthand, the 5.0 Mustang is back. Vanilla Ice be praised, it'll turn in 412 horsepower--only 14 hp or so less than the Chevrolet Camaro SS. (Yes, that's a V-6 'Tang you see above--we're sticking with the photography embargo until someone else commits mortal sin.)

Those are the details divulged so far, but who knows? Maybe Twitter will cough up more embargoed information before the week is done. Stay tuned--and come back for our 2010 Detroit Auto Show preview on Friday.
