The iconic Ford Mustang is launched in India in a ceremony held at Jawaharlal Nehru Weightlifting stadium on January 28, 2016. Debuting ahead of the Delhi Auto Expo 2016 and set to hit Indian showrooms by the second half of this year, the new Mustang will bring the world-class performance and refinement of Ford’s iconic pony car to India’s roads.

“Throughout its long history, the Ford Mustang has been a symbol of optimism and confidence for people all over the world,” said Nigel Harris, president, Ford India. “The new Mustang is a modern interpretation of the American icon, and we are thrilled to be giving our customers in India the opportunity to experience this piece of automotive history for the first time.” Since the Mustang first went on sale in 1964, Ford has sold more than 90 lakhs vehicles. It has made thousands of appearances in film, television, music and video games and is the world’s most-liked vehicle on Facebook.

The new Ford Mustang comes equipped with the latest edition of the throaty 5.0-liter V8, now featuring an upgraded valve-train and cylinder heads that yield more than 420 horsepower and 529 Nm of torque. A new intake manifold improves low-speed breathing for better fuel economy, idle stability, and emissions. A large, high-definition display screen puts vehicle information right in front of the driver in the roomier cabin while improved ergonomics and tactile switches and knobs provide better control. The increased width and a new rear suspension contribute to improved shoulder and hip room for rear-seat passengers, and a more usefully shaped trunk can accommodate two golf bags.

Ford engineers equipped the Mustang with new front and rear suspension systems. At the front, a new perimeter sub-frame helps to stiffen the structure while reducing mass, providing a better foundation for more predictable wheel control that benefits handling, steering, and ride. At the rear is an all-new integral-link independent rear suspension. The geometry, springs, dampers and bushings all have been specifically modified and tuned for this high-performance application. New aluminum rear knuckles help reduce un-sprung mass for improved ride and handling.

The new Ford Mustang features a range of smart technologies providing drivers with enhanced information, control, and connectivity when they want it. Ford’s award-winning SYNC connectivity system allows drivers to control their in-car entertainment using voice commands, keeping their hands on the wheel and eyes on the road. Premium features like navigation, push button start, passive entry, power folding mirrors, and a rear camera are standard on the all-new Mustang to enhance the driving experience.


Putting drivers in greater control of the open road, Selectable Drive Modes (SDM), allow them to toggle easily between normal, snow/wet, sport and track modes to quickly adjust steering effort, engine response, and transmission and electronic stability control settings.

And MyColor gauges and ambient lighting help drivers to customize the vehicle’s interior lighting color to their preferences.

“The new Ford Mustang is a one-of-a-kind vehicle and is going to appeal to Indian drivers who value the style, performance, and heritage that the Mustang name brings,” said Harris. “With advanced new technology, an iconic design, and world-class power, it truly sets a new standard.”
