NEW MUSTANG BY CHRISTMAS
PRICE DROPS TO HALF THE 2002 COST
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 sixspeed Getrag manual transmission Fastback with a 233kW/432Nm 2.3-litre turbo engine and tops out at $63,990 for the sixspeed automatic GT 5.0-litre V8 Convertible with 303kW/525Nm of muscle.
Key design features of the new Mus- tang include a low roof height and wide stance, 3D tri-bar 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, 19inch premium wheels with Lustre Nickel finish on the GT and prestige paint.
Ford's new Mustangs will soon be here.
