New Mustang: Harder, faster, lighter

It’s here! Ford has just ripped the covers off its new Mustang – the all-new muscle car that’ll be tearing up Aussie roads in 2015.

As previously reported by Wheels, Australia will receive two engine choices – a thumping 313kW/528Nm 5.0-litre V8 and a new direct-injection, turbocharged 2.3-litre four-cylinder producing in excess of 227kW and 407Nm. Aussie buyers won’t be getting the 3.7-litre V6 offered in the US.

Designed from a “clean sheet”, Ford says the new-generation Mustang is lower, leaner and much sportier, with headline changes including an all-new platform and an independent rear end.

Ford also claims the new Mustang will finally deliver the handling ability promised by its fantastic styling.

But enough talk – with Ford finally revealing images of the new car, enjoy the new Mustang from every angle in the above gallery. And you can read about every detail in the next issue of Wheels magazine – on sale Monday December 16.
