Ford Australia has finally released the Mustang locally and it’s got a 2.3-litre, four-cylinder EcoBoost engine. The efficient turbocharged motor generates 233kW and 432Nm and uses as little as 9L/100km on the combined cycle.
That enough? That ok? Good, because no one cars about a four-cylinder Mustang. So let’s forget that and concentrate on the model everyone does care about – the 324kW/542Nm, 5.0-litre V8!
This Ford Mustang, the first officially available in Australia since the 1960’s, is the sixth generation of what is now an automotive legend. It’s also the first Mustang that’s been designed by the factory to be RHD. This new Mustang was always supposed to be an export star.
Retro is cool, but retro isn’t easy to nail, yet this new Mustang fills the brief perfectly – it’s modern but old school – and it needs to be to keep the Mustang faithful happy.
