Will be launched in India this year.
Ford is showcasing the 2016 Ford Mustang at Auto China 2016 (2016 Beijing Motor Show). Introduced in December 2013, the sixth generation Ford Mustang has been officially on sale in China since January 2015. Even though China is a left-hand drive market, the Mustang was launched for the first time in the country in sixth generation. The Mustang has been announced for India and its retail will begin in the second quarter of the year.
The 2016 Ford Mustang is available with two engine options in China: 2.3L EcoBoost and 5.0L Ti-VCT. The 2.3-litre turbocharged four-cylinder EcoBoost engine produces 231 kW (310 hp) and 434 Nm of torque, while the 5.0-litre Ti-VCT naturally aspirated V8 engine produces 310 kW (416 hp) and 530 Nm of torque. Both engines are mated to the 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission with paddle shifters. Like in Europe and Asia, the Ford Mustang is not offered in the base V6 engine model in China.
Both the 2.3L EcoBoost and V8 models are offered in two grades: Performance and Sport. Noteworthy features include Xenon headlamps with LED fog lights, puddle lamps that project the iconic pony logo, 19-inch aluminium wheels, LED tail lights, dual exhaust pipes, rear spoiler, heated and cooled leather seats, MyFord infotainment system with an 8.0-inch colour touchscreen display.
Ford announced this week that it sold 110,000 units of the Ford Mustang Coupe and around 30,000 units of the Ford Mustang Convertible in 2015, and that it was the only sports coupe globally to sell more than 100,000 units last year.
