This is the ’20 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500 with less camo.

The Mustang-based GT500 will build on the GT350’s performance capabilities. It was originally thought that the production version would have a supercharged 5.2L flat-plane crank engine mated to a DCT transmission, but it has been confirmed that it will have an option for the Tremec six-speed manual.

Horsepower should be more than the 707 powering Dodge Hellcat models but may fall short of the 808 hp in the Demon (probably ringing in somewhere around 740 hp). GT500s will also get unique styling tweaks in the form of a reworked front fascia with larger air intakes, a massive hood bulge with heat extractor vents, and a side diffuser that stops mid-door.

 

This is the ’19 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 RST (Rally Sport Truck). Although GM recently debuted the 1500 lineup, only a single image of the RST was shown.

The 1500 RST is a street-performance appearance upgrade applied to the Silverado LT. It features body-color trim, full LED lighting (fog lamps, headlamps and taillamps) and up to 22-in. wheels with all-season tires. The truck seen here features the optional bed-mounted rollbar out of the Chevy Performance catalog.

Power should come from the 6.2L V8 mated to the new 10-speed automatic, similar to the setup seen on the ’18 Chevrolet Tahoe RST and the Chevy Suburban RST.

Expect to see the Silverado 1500 RST in showrooms this fall.

’19 Ford Ranger Wildtrak

The next-generation Ranger Wildtrak was caught completely undisguised in Detroit. A popular Ute substitute in Australia, the Wildtrak gets added ground clearance, a bedliner with a 12V socket, a retractable tonneau cover (roller shutter), 18-in. alloy rims on P265/60 tires, and additional interior/exterior styling.

In other markets, the current Wildtrak can be had with the 3.2L diesel found in the Transit, although the new model features the all-new twin-turbo 2.0 diesel (confirmed by the bi-turbo badge on the front fender) mated to a 10-speed automatic tranny or an optional six-speed manual.

Given the relentless U.S. testing, it wouldn’t be shocking if the Wildtrak makes a stateside debut alongside the Ranger Raptor.
