Ford has released preview images today of the new Mustang that is being officially unveiled tonight at five events around the globe in Sydney, China, Spain and the USA.
The 2015 model is the sixth generation of an icon. Priced in Australia at around $45K, it will come off the factory line in late 2015 as a right-hand-drive.
I’m excited, officially excited, as this is actually a pretty big deal and puts the Mustang on the radar of a lot of shoppers who’ve always wanted one but didn’t want a converted car.
Famous since 1968 as a V8 muscle car, it will be available in the expected V8 plus a 4-cylinder turbo version, which frankly will probably be more powerful (and more fuel efficient) than the V8, which ticks my boxes big time. It’s going to be available as both a 6-speed manual (SHRIEK) and 6-speed automatic.
Ford also plans to bring out some limited editions after 2015 to keep interest high in Australia. Well, Ford. You’ve officially got me interested. Very, very interested.
The styling is inspired by the original 1968 classic, it comes with the driver’s seat in the right location, it’s available as manual, it’s …. look at me, I’m gushing. MWAH!!!!
