The new generation of the Ford Mustang is expected to surface in 2015, and here is a new rendering which has recently surfaced on the internet that some ‘insider’ from the US claims to be pretty close to what the final design of the model will be. The new Mustang is likely to become a global model, meaning it is being designed to meet the tastes of both American and European customers, but it will also retain several elements recalling the previous generations of this popular muscle car. However, according to website Inside Line, at the moment the Blue Oval isn’t really considering the idea of exporting it abroad.
The style of the new model will probably be more aggressive too, with a sleeker and lighter body that should draw some inspiration from what we have seen with the Evos concept. The Detroit-based manufacturer has already confirmed that the overall design and proportions of the model will remain the same (hence the long boot and short tail) whereas the technical contents will be enhanced with the adoption of a lighter frame as well as a fully independent suspension systems, both of which will improve its driving accuracy.
As for the engine range, rumor has it that a brand new supercharged 4-cylinder engine will replace the current V6, ensuring the same kind of performance with much better fuel consumption and CO2 emission figures. Almost needless to say, a classic and powerful V8 will also be part of the game. The definitive version of the next Mustang is likely to make its debut at the 2014 New York Auto Show.
