The Ford Mustang facelift has had a long run globally since its debut in 2017, and now India may also gets its hands on it soon. Reports suggest Ford will finally bring the updated pony car to the country by mid-2020. We’ve already spied the facelifted Mustang on Indian roads back in January and September last year without any camouflage. Here’s what’s new in the facelift:
On the outside, the facelift receives an extensive update with a redesigned bonnet, grille and bumper. It also gets all-LED lighting for the DRLs, headlamps, indicators tail lights and fog lamps. Inside, the Mustang gets a new 12-inch LCD instrument display, a new infotainment system and reworked seats.
The main talking point in the Mustang is what’s under the hood. We expect Ford to continue with the 5.0-litre naturally aspirated V8 engine but with a power bump up to 450PS (415PS pre-facelift). The US-spec pony car makes 466PS and 569Nm. Also expect the Mustang to stick exclusively to an automatic transmission in India. However, we expect Ford to replace the 6-speed torque converter with the latest 10-speed automatic like the US spec. Along with the much-loved Line Lock, we’re hoping that Ford bundles in the ‘Drag Strip’ mode as well.
The pre-facelift Mustang is currently sold at a price tag of Rs 74.62 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). Expect it to be priced at a premium over its predecessor thanks to the upgrades it gets.
