The new Ford Mustang will arrive here before the year’s end in time for the next big January sales month.
Ford says this sleeker, faster, and more technologically-advanced new Ford Mustang delivers more athletic styling, sophisticated engine and suspension enhancements. It also provides advanced driver assistance features and more customisation options for customers of the iconic sports car in Europe.
Available in fastback and convertible body styles, the instantly recognisable, powerful Mustang profile now features more refined aerodynamics, and is enhanced with LED lighting technology, and a choice of what Ford describes as 11 bold exterior colours and new alloy wheel options.
The Mustang’s 5.0-litre Ford V8 engine now delivers 450 PS – and is able to sprint from 0-100 km/h (0-62 mph ) in 4.3 seconds when combined with Ford’s new 10-speed automatic gearbox. Mustang’s six-speed manual transmission now features rev-matching technology that delivers smoother, faster downshifts accompanied by a “blip” of the powerful engine.
Tuned to match European driving expectations, Mustang’s fun-to-drive character is optimised with sophisticated new MagneRide® adjustable suspension and selectable drive modes, including a new customisable My Mode option. A new active valve performance exhaust even delivers an innovative Good Neighbour Mode for early-morning or late-night driving.
Mustang driver assistance technologies including pre-collision assist with pedestrian detection and lane keeping aid enhance the driving experience with greater peace of mind. A contemporary, upscale interior features soft-touch materials and a 12-inch all-digital instrument cluster for a superior occupant experience.
“Europe’s passion for Mustang has proven even greater than we imagined – more than 33,000 Mustangs are already bringing one of the most iconic sights in motoring to the continent’s streets,” said Steven Armstrong, group vice president and president, Europe Middle East and Africa, Ford Motor Company. “There are few cars on the road that can deliver such a combination of heritage, style and performance to such a wide audience. The new Ford Mustang offers the most compelling package yet.”
