I found the horsepower and torque curves for the 5.0L Coyote V-8 and the 3.7L Cyclone V-6:

(From: HP & Torque curves - curve-fitted from Ford's advertised data - 2015+ S550 Mustang Forum (GT, GT350, GT500, I4, V6) - Mustang6G.com )

I looked at the curve for the Coyote and it showed 325 lb-ft of torque as starting off at near zero. That made me wonderif that was even possible or if the graph was wrong.

It's true! It's true! The graph is correct!

Then I checked it with this equation: HP = (Torque*RPM)/5252, rearranged as Torque = (HP*5252)/RPM.
(See: Power and Torque: Understanding the Relationship Between the Two, by EPI Inc.)

That equation gave me these figures:
RPM HP Torque
250 15.5 326 - - 81% of peak torque at take off.
500 31 326
1000 62 326
1500 95 333
2000 140 368
2500 170 357 - - Highway speed of 75 mph and 89% of peak torque.
3000 220 385
3500 260 390
4000 300 394
4250 324 400 - - Peak torque
4500 340 397
5000 375 394
5500 410 392
6000 420 368
6500 435 351 - - Peak horsepower

The 435 horsepower of this engine is hypothetical because you have to go 190 mph to reach the horsepower limit. The real benefit of the high horsepower is the high torque that goes along with it. The majority of the Coyote's torque is available immediately and is within the speed range in which most people typically drive.

Geeze. The 5.0L Coyote engine is an incredibly powerful engine.

PS: I love the name of the 3.7L Cyclone V-6. Check out the 1964 Mercury Cyclone. Gosh, what a beautiful car:

I picked up my 2016 GT/PP yesterday, and damn, the Coyote is marvelous! Going from a bone stock 2006 GT, the new Mustang pulls so much harder! I was hoping that I'd be able to find some dyno charts!

Thanks!

Why is that? The max horsepower occurs are 6500 RPM which can be done at plus or minus 30mph in first gear. Still impressive figures to say the least.

Here are the numbers on my car. Had it on dyno last week. Yes you are correct...it is a wonderful torque curve , gets there fast and stays!
