The fifth-generation Ford Mustang received a makeover for the 2010 model year. Although the 4.0L Cologne V6 and 4.6L modular V8 were carried over from the 2005-2009 Ford Mustang, changes to the exterior and interior meant K&N needed to design new air intake systems for 2010 Ford Mustang models. However, Ford introduced a new 3.7L Duratec V6 and the 5.0L V8 Coyote Motor for the 2011 Ford Mustang. This makes the 2010 Ford Mustang an oddball in Mustang history and perhaps one day it might even be a rare collectable.
