There are actually three answers, one for each engine.

The big dog 5.0-liter Coyote V8 in the Mustang GT is rated at 435 hp and 400 lb-ft of torque, up 15 hp and 10 lb-ft, while the base car’s 3.7-liter V6 loses 5 hp, for a 300 hp/290 lb-ft rating.

– It was almost as if Ryan Hunter-Reay suffered from “Post Indianapolis 500 Depression” following his dramatic win in the 500-Mile Race on May 25, in what may have been the greatest fight to the finish in Indy 500 history.

The races that followed saw Hunter-Reay finish poorly in the Detroit doubleheader (16th and 19th) and the annual Saturday night race at Texas Motor Speedway (19th).
