The seventh generation Mustang is the most exhilarating and visceral yet, from its fighter jet-inspired digital cockpit to advanced turbocharged and naturally aspirated engines to its edgier yet still timeless exterior design.
The new Mustang adds another chapter to an icon, delivering the looks, sound and appeal of the iconic sports coupe. Whether convertible or coupe, V8 or turbocharged 4-cylinder, manual or automatic, Mustang has options for multiple prices and performance levels.
The seventh generation adds modern chiseled looks to its heritage-inspired design, which sets out to appeal to the broadest Mustang customer mindset yet.
Its low, horizontal brow across the front of Mustang’s signature three-section hood aligns with LED headlamps to create an aggressive front end, influenced by the original 1960s design. Its sleek roofline, broad sprinting stance and shortened rear overhang are also true to the authentic proportions of the first generation, while the widened rear haunches point to the power over the wheels in true Mustang style.
The roofline is optimised for the driver’s entry to and exit from the vehicle without removing their helmet on the track, and an extended rear deck houses a new crisp signature tri-bar lighting and redesigned diffuser for improved aerodynamic balance in the rear.
Behind the chiseled exterior silhouette of the seventh-generation Mustang lies the most technologically advanced, driver-centric cockpit of any Mustang to date. The fighter jet-inspired cockpit offers the driver two flowing and curved displays that can be quickly customised to show the information the driver wants or needs to see.
Based on the same Unreal Engine 3D software technology found in modern video games, Mustang’s digital instrument cluster can be customised to display different animated designs and new drive-mode dependent instrument clusters.
The way Mustang looks, drives and sounds is key to the experience that makes drivers want to get in the driver’s seat and hit the road. The all-new Mustang delivers an even more exciting drive experience with new and advanced engine technologies.
It starts with Mustang GT, powered by an advanced, 5.0-litre Coyote V8 engine. The fourth-generation 5.0-litre is set to deliver the most naturally aspirated horsepower of any Mustang GT.
Ford has saved the manual transmission for a new generation and the 5.0-litre V8 continues to offer a six-speed manual transmission for customers who want an uncompromised connection to eight-cylinder power. Ford’s advanced 10-speed automatic transmission is also available, and it almost instantaneously reconfigures its shift patterns to match the selected drive mode.
Mustang GT with the manual transmission includes standard rev-matching that helps hold engine RPM when the clutch is engaged to retain peak torque between manual gear changes, delivering even more precision, thrill and better refinement.
Customers who desire Mustang’s fun-to-drive feeling with fuel efficiency benefits can opt for the EcoBoost model, powered by an updated, four-cylinder turbocharged 2.3-litre powertrain.
We can’t wait to get our hands on this new beast.
