Here at Terry’s Ford we are pleased to announce that the 2013 Ford Mustang will soon be available for drivers in Monee, IL and the greater Will County area! Here at Terry’s Ford, we’re passionate about great cars — after all, we’re gearheads at heart — and we have remove our hats in deference to Ford, because the 2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is by far the most harrowing muscle-car conceived for the streets. With a solid upgrade to almost everything under the hood, the GT500 is a force to be reckoned with on and off the racetrack; while we’re still waiting to get it into our showroom, you can bet that Terry’s Ford will have this unprecedented supercar ready for any Illinois driver daring to drive it home.
The battle for the top muscle-car is as red-blooded American as it gets, and the Mustang and Camaro rivalry runs deep; but no matter your affinities, there’s no denying that in 2013, the Camaro ZR1 has been outclassed by the most powerful muscle-car Ford has ever conceived: the 2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 — and at Terry’s we know Monee residents can’t wait to get their hands on it.
We heard early that the Mustang was going to be tough, but not this tough. The GT500 has been refitted with a 5.8-liter aluminum block V-8 engine, a higher-flow fuel injection system, and its Eaton M112 supercharger tossed for the quieter and more efficient TVS unit — culminating in an ungodly 650-horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque, and tops the charts at more than 200mph. With a Launch system allowing drivers to select their RPMs before they take off, a six-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip solid rear axle to boot, the Shelby GT500 is a masterpiece.
The 2013 Chevy Camaro ZR1 is a compelling vehicle, but it certainly can’t hold a candle to stats like that. Its supercharged 6.2-liter LSA V-8 engine is strong and its output of 580-horsepower and 556 lb-ft of torque was the toughest thing on the market — until the announcement from Ford. While Chevy fired the first shots in reigniting the muscle-wars, we think Will County car-enthusiasts will agree that, for now at least, Ford has definitively put the conflict to bed.
There’s no question that the 2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 is destined to be a legend in its own time, and residents in Monee can drive one now; with an MSRP of a $54,200, you’d never think that the Mustang had humiliated the likes of the $113K Corvette ZR1 (couldn’t even make 200mph!). So don’t wait to schedule to test drive the GT500 and the rest of the Mustang line of Ford muscle at Terry’s Ford in Peotone today!
