Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - Looklocal -

THERE’S a lot of good news from Ford: Its new Mus­tang will ar­rive in time for Christ­mas, and its price tag will be about half of what it cost in 2002.

There will be a choice of fast­back and con­vert­ible, four-cylin­der or V8 power, and man­ual or au­to­matic trans­mis­sion.

And they’ll be sell­ing fast: Ford al­ready holds about 1200 or­ders for the iconic mod­els.

The range starts at $44,990 for the six-speed Ge­trag man­ual trans­mis­sion Fast­back with a 233kW/432Nm 2.3-litre turbo en­gine and tops out at $63,990 for the six-speed au­to­matic GT 5.0litre V8 Con­vert­ible with 303kW/525Nm of mus­cle.

Key de­sign fea­tures of the new Mus­tang in- clude a low roof height and wide stance, 3D tribar tail­lights and an up­date of its “shark bite” nose.

It has a roomy cabin with an avi­a­tion-in­spired cock­pit, new rear sus­pen­sion and a boot that can carry two golf bags.

The Mus­tangs will also fea­ture high lev­els of con­nec­tiv­ity via Ford’s Sync2 in­fo­tain­ment sys­tem with an 8-inch colour touch screen and voice con­trol for eas­ier ac­cess to au­dio, nav­i­ga­tion, cli­mate con­trol and com­pat­i­ble mo­bile phones.

Buy­ers will also be able to op­tion their Mus­tangs with rac­ing stripes, 19-inch pre­mium wheels with Lus­tre Nickel fin­ish on the GT and pres­tige paint.

Ford's new Mus­tangs will soon be here.
