Ford has plans to introduce the new Mustang facelift in the Indian market. It is expected to be priced around Rs 75 lakh.
The sales of Ford’s flagship car Mustang was stopped months back because of the new BS6 emission norms. But despite not being on sale in the country, it continued to feature on the company’s Indian website. The automaker has, however, recently updated its website and has delisted Mustang. We expect that this has been done because the carmaker has plans to launch the new facelift version of Mustang in the coming months.
Earlier, the Ford Mustang, which was on sale in India was revealed back in 2018. Mechanically, it gets propelled by a 5.0-litre V8 mill, which churns out 396bhp of peak power and 515 Nm of torque. Transmission duties are done by a 6-speed AT and it transmits power to rear wheels. The new facelift model of the car will be powered by the same 5.0-litre V8 engine, which is now tuned to produce power and torque outputs of 453bhp and 569 Nm. Moreover, the 6-speed AT offered in the pre-facelift model will be ditched by a 10-speed AT. In our market, the new Ford Mustang will only be offered in the GT variant. Talking about the cosmetic changes, the upcoming Mustang will get an aggressive-looking front bumper, redesigned bonnet wit air scoops, revised LED taillights and a lip-spoiler at the back.
Nevertheless, no major changes are expected on the side profile of the car. The cabin of the new Ford Mustang will come loaded with features like a 12-inch digital instrument cluster, better fit and finish of interior components, an infotainment unit with the latest smartphone connectivity options like Apple CarPlay and Android Auto and also some additional safety equipment when compared to the pre-facelift model of the car. The upcoming pre-facelift Ford Mustang is expected to be priced around Rs 75 lakhs (ex-showroom). Post-launch, the Ford Mustang continue to be the company’s flagship product in India. In other news, Ford will soon launch the new SE trim of EcoSport in our market. The upcoming SE trim looks pretty similar to the EcoSport retailed in the international markets.
