The large displacement 5.0-litre V8 engine makes 435PS of power and 542Nm of torque. India will mostly get the large displacement 5.0-litre variant as the Mustang will be a flagship model for Ford. The Mustang offers transmission options including an automatic six-speed unit and a six-speed manual box.
The feature list in the Ford Mustang include a sync 3 infotainment system, automatic wipers, start/stop button and adaptive cruise control to name a few. The Ford Mustang will also feature a track app that will offer launch control and also provide performance data on the 4.2-inch multi information display on the instrumental cluster.
This is the first time that the Ford Mustang is offering a right-hand drive configuration since its launch in 1964. In terms of safety, the Mustang comes with Blind Spot Information System that uses radar to detect a vehicle at a blind spot and alerts with an indicator in the appropriate exterior mirror.
The new Ford Mustang gets signature HID headlamps and LED tri-bar tail lamps with sequential turn signals as standard. The expected ex-showroom price of Ford Mustang will be between Rs 55 lakh to Rs 60 lakh.
