2023 Ford Mustang
The seventh generation of the pony car is all set for a global debut on September 14 at an occasion dubbed ‘The Stampede’ at Hart Plaza in Detroit
- Ford sold the pre-facelift sixth-gen Mustang in India for a short period.
- The seventh-generation Ford Mustang will maintain its V8 and manual gearbox.
- Ford might cast the new Mustang in India along with the Mach-E SUV.
- Expect considerable changes to the exterior and interior design.
Think muscle car, and images of a Ford Mustang will likely rush your mind. The Stang is not just a car but an icon with devotees following across the globe since its inception in the 1960s.
We have seen six generations of the Mustang in the past 57 years, and Ford is all set to take the covers off the latest seventh-generation Mustang on September 14 at an event called ‘The Stampede’ at Hart Plaza in Detroit.
Ford India removed the plug on the pre-facelift sixth-generation Mustang long ago. Although Ford has stopped production of passenger cars in India, the brand has indicated bringing down some of its premium models and EVs, such as the Mustang Mache-E, via the CBU route.
In that circumstance, we were waiting to see the reveal of the facelifted sixth-generation Mustang in India, which, sadly, did not happen. As things stand now, the new Mustang might be the one Ford will bring to India along with the Mustang Mach-E SUV.
The exact technical details are still in the dark. But there’s good news – the new Stang will maintain a V8 powertrain and a manual gearbox. So expect the cracker of a 5.0-litre Coyote V8 to be kept along with other powertrain options such as the 2.3-litre Ecoboost.
Ford has no direct plans to electrify the Mustang. Still, we expect some form of hybridisation with the seventh-generation Mustang, which will come with modified styling inside and out and an upmarket interior, as revealed by some leaked pictures.
