Ford Introduced A New Generation Of Mustang
The Ford has finally demonstrated a new generation of their famous convertible Mustang. Sixth generation of the car for the first time in history will be global and will even get a version with the right wheel - especially for the UK. Are on sale in Russia.
The Ford bosses hope that the start of sales of the Mustang in Europe will help the brand image, and the creators of GT assure that the new Mustang will be quite able to compete with the BMW M3. Perhaps it is the market of the Old world designed for those serious innovations that got famous pony car.
The main of them is an independent multi-link rear suspension. Of the entire galaxy of legendary American coupe Ford Mustang received its almost the last. In addition, the car is equipped with a lightweight front sub-frame, powerful brakes and a limited-slip differential with traction control system Torque Vectoring.
Ford Mustang gave significantly redesigned appearance, and Ford claim that was not going to keep its exterior plaque retro. The main task of the stylists was to make the car more modern, while ensuring absolute awareness. Now the Mustang has a more dynamic silhouette and slightly modified dimensions: it became lower and wider and got larger gauge, and the dynamics of his appearance add receding front pillars. However, recognition is achieved mainly thanks to the signature grille. Stated that has changed and interior space - it was slightly larger, not only due to the fact that the Mustang came in width, and due to the thinner Central tunnel.
Most likely the base for the Ford Mustang will become known in the U.S. 3.7-liter V6, which develops 305 horsepower. But in Europe, the manufacturer decides on a completely new four-cylinder turbirovannyj motor EcoBoost family. When the volume of 2.3 l it provides the same 305 HP, but has a significantly lower appetite. In addition, Ford claim that the engineers managed to configure turbo in full compliance with the authentic character of the "Mustang".
The most powerful engine of those that will offer the ultimate combination of this five-liter naturally-aspirated V8. At the start of sales it will provide 420 "forces", but within one and a half years, the manufacturer promises to raise its capacity to 500 HP to gang up the engines are assumed with the same 6-speed gearbox, manual and automatic. However, two years later, Ford is going to provide "Mustang" and the latest 10-speed "automatic".
The novelty will appear on the market in two guises - as a coupe and as a convertible. The last feature fabric uppers, the folding of which are electric motors. They, by the way, can deprive the convertible roof in just 7 seconds. The soft top is eaten off a certain amount of free litre Luggage compartment, but relatively small: the trunk of a convertible with a volume of 324 l vs 383 in the coupe.
Live the legendary sportscar in the sixth generation should make its debut in January at the Detroit motor show. Sales as Ford is going to start on April 17, next year, on the day of the fiftieth anniversary Mustang.
