The current Ford Mustang achieved a lowly two-star rating for overall safety in a series of recent crash tests carried out by Euro NCAP. There are concerns about its crash protection for adult and child occupants with a ‘worrying lack’ of safety equipment commonly available on the European market. Euro NCAP says the driver and passenger airbags inflated insufficiently and noted that the European Mustang does not have the US-spec Forward Collision Warning system. Ford has confirmed its forthcoming facelifted Mustang will feature upgraded safety kit as standard.
Ford has facelifted its Mustang for 2017. A lower, re-modeled bonnet and grille deliver a leaner look and refined aerodynamics, while LED lighting has been added front and rear. Under the skin new suspension brings increased lateral stiffness with sharper response and handling, while a new 10-speed automatic transmission is also available. The 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine has been recalibrate while the 5.0-litre V8 has been thoroughly reworked, says Ford, and is more powerful than ever. The facelifted Ford Mustang isn't expected in the UK until 2018.
The first Ford GT customer car has rolled off the production line. The rear-wheel drive Supercar features an aircraft-inspired body design and active aerodynamics. A twin-turbo 3.5-litre V6 EcoBoost engine produces nearly 600 bhp, and when coupled with extensive use of carbon fibre and aluminium - results in one of the best power-to-weight ratios of any production car says Ford. Initially just 500 vehicles are to be built, and the first of these are shortly due to reach their new owners around the globe.
The all-new Ford Mustang has officially gone on sale in the UK for the first time. Fastback or convertible versions are available, powered by either a 314PS 2.3-litre EcoBoost engine or a 418PS 5.0-litre V8 unit – mated to a six-speed manual or automatic transmission. The 2015 Mustang is fitted with 19-inch wheels, performance brakes and a rear diffuser as standard and is available to order now from new inner city 'FordStores'. Prices start from £28,995 on the road, rising to £38,495 for the range-topping V8 Convertible.
