The powerful new Ford Mustang offers performance to thrill, with advanced driving technologies working to deliver responsive handling and agile manoeuvrability. Selectable Driving Modes and Adaptive Cruise Control combine with a MagneRide Damping System and electric power-assisted steering with drift control that automatically adjusts to your speed and the road conditions. Thrilling handling ensures a pulse-racing drive every time.
A new 12-inch digital instrument cluster transforms the performance on the road into invaluable data optimised to match the drive mode selected for your Mustang. Whether in Normal, Sport+, Snow/Wet, Track, or Drag Strip mode, the instrument panel adapts its appearance to deliver the suitable information. Plus, with the option to programme a range of gauges, you can personalise the cluster to display exactly the data you need.
Ford’s innovative SYNC 3 technology has been enhanced to be faster and simpler to use, with the eight-inch touchscreen within the new Mustang featuring the same pinch and swipe gestures found on your smartphone. With improved voice commands and increased levels of functionality, SYNC 3 can even connect via Apple CarPlay and Android Auto to mirror the performance of your smartphone on the integrated screen.
With two engine options available - a 5.0-litre V8 and a 2.3-litre EcoBoost - exceptional performance is assured. And let’s be frank, the performance and engine roar of the Mustang is what sets pulses racing. With Active Valve Exhaust, you even have the opportunity to control the sound of your vehicle, with Quiet Mode reducing the noise level for quieter driving environments, and Race Track mode ramping up the decibels and unleashing the full sound of the engine.
Not many models create a stir of excitement like the Ford Mustang. As the world’s best-selling sports coupe, the latest edition has an even greater sense of aggression and power than ever before. But the subtle changes to the aesthetic - the new mesh grille, re-profiled bumper, and air extractor bonnet vents - don’t detract from the legacy of the Ford Mustang’s illustrious history. And then, of course, there’s the roar of the engines.
The new Mustang features a 2.3-litre engine that has seen a reduction in power from 313bhp to 286bhp, all without any loss of performance. A 5.0-litre V8 unit, meanwhile, delivers 443bhp. Combined with the various drive modes available, and with the new Active Valve Exhaust enabling you to optimise the sound of the vehicle, the spine-tingling excitement of the Mustang’s roar will always set your heart racing.
While both the exterior and the engines of the new Ford Mustang have undergone subtle but effective change, it’s the interior features of the model that are perhaps most exciting. Taking its inspiration from aircraft cockpit design, the Mustang has been arranged for every control to be within effortless reach and for all the necessary driver information to be accessible at a moment’s glance, with a new 12-inch digital instrument cluster adapting to the driving mode and personal settings.
There is also supreme comfort and exceptional technology to enhance and support your drive. With five driving modes adapting the settings of the car accordingly - Drag Strip, for example, gives increased thrust from standstill - and such safety measures as Pre-Collision Assist identifying pedestrians and moving objects and supporting you in avoiding them, you can be assured of a drive that is the perfect combination of confidence and excitement.
