Ford India will launch the Mustang coupe in India today, marking the official entry of the muscle car in the country. The Mustang will serve as Ford India’s flagship offering, and will be imported from the United States in the fully-built (CBU) form.
For the Indian market, the Mustang will reportedly be offered in its top-spec Mustang GT variant, powered by a 5.0-liter Ti-VCT V8 engine paired to a 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. The engine will develop 435 hp and 542 Nm of torque. The fastback will weigh around 1,691 kg.
Compared to its predecessor, the new Mustang rides on a modern suspension system. It gets a Double-ball-joint MacPherson strut with stabilizer bar at the front and an Integral-link independent suspension with coil springs and stabilizer bar at the rear.
Launch control, Electronic line-lock (which lets drivers warm up the rear tyres by locking the front brakes), selectable driving modes and selectable electric power assisted steering (EPAS) are some of the performance features buyers can look forward to on the Mustang GT.
Automatic headlamps with wiper activation, HID headlamps with signature lighting, LED taillamps with sequential turn signals, dual-stage front airbags, AdvanceTrac electronic stability control, front knee airbags, side curtain airbags, Individual Tire Pressure Monitoring System, Perimeter alarm, Rear view camera and a Remote Keyless Entry System are other features found on the Mustang GT.
