The international spec Mustang is powered by a 3.7-litre Ti-VCT V6 motor that makes 300PS of power and 380Nm of torque as well as a 2.3-litre EcoBoost motor that makes 310PS of power and 434Nm of torque. The large displacement 5.0-litre V8 engine makes 435PS of power and 542Nm of torque. Ford will definitely launch the Mustang GT 5.0-litre with a six-speed automatic box and not the lower variants in India. This has been tested with 93-octane fuel

This is also the first time that the Ford Mustang is offered in a right-hand drive configuration since its launch in 1964. 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. The 390 watt Shaker Pro Audio System is optional on certain models. The audio system includes an AM/FM stereo, single-CD/MP3 player and 12 speakers including an eight-inch sub-woofer.

In terms of safety, the Mustang comes equipped with BLIS (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 Mustang sold outside is also offered with a long list of personalization options. We suspect that the prices of Ford Mustang will be between Rs 55 lakh to Rs 60 lakh, ex-showroom.
