A slightly reworked design

Externally, this new Mustang evolves relatively little compared to the previous generation. Ford talks about a design ” more modern “. The manufacturer has slightly reworked the front end, with a slightly wider and more muscular front line. There are also the new Tri-Bar LED headlights, and two imposing air intakes arranged on each side of the bumper. On the GT version, Ford added an imposing air intake on the hood.

The roofline has also been redesigned, to allow better airflow and optimized comfort for the driver.
In the back, Ford widened the hips of its Mustang. There are also new headlights for a new light signature and the presence of an all-new rear diffuser. The manufacturer has also installed new rims ranging from 17 inches to 20 inches depending on the configuration.

Ford offers three body lines with the EcoBoost version, the GT version and the convertible version. A total of 11 different colors will be available. And Ford is also launching a series Bronze Designas well as its service Mustang Designwhich notably offers several customization elements.

A more modern interior

It is especially inside that this Mustang 2022 evolves the most. There is a particularly modern atmosphere, which denotes with the previous generation. Moreover, Ford insists that this is the “most technologically advanced cockpit on a Mustang”. The manufacturer has installed a double digital screen of 12.4 inches, fully customizable. It is thus possible to display a multitude of information, all with several graphic renderings available. The brand has also emphasized touch controls more than buttons. This is particularly the case for the air conditioning controls and for the radio.

The design of the steering wheel has also been revised, on all versions. This design is inspired by that of the race, in particular for the GT version. The upholstery has been improved, and Ford offers a wide choice of finishes with several colors of stitching to choose from. The fabric of the seats has also been revised, and several colors will be available to adorn the interior of this new Mustang.

Finally, Ford installed the B&O audio system, optimized for the car. Enough to make this new Ford Mustang a real compendium of technology.

Ford Mustang 2022, the V8 Coyote still in the game

This was the part that Mustang fans were most worried about. With which engine would this new Mustang be available? For a long time, the rumor of a hybrid engine made its way. But it is nothing. Ford presented two 100% thermal engines. The brand first offers a 2.3-litre 300 hp 4-cylinder Turbo engine. This engine is intended, according to the brand, for customers who want to enjoy the driving pleasure of the Mustang, with reasonable levels of consumption. These were not specified.
Above all, Ford maintains in its catalog the mythical V8 5.0 liter atmospheric Coyote of 500 hp.

These two engines will be associated with a 6-speed manual gearbox, or a 10-speed automatic gearbox. A total of 6 driving modes will be available (Normal, Sport, Slippery, Drag, Track, Custom) to ensure efficient driving whatever the conditions. Ford talks about the Mustang “the most athletic and inspiring to drive yet”.

A “GT Performance” pack and a version Dark Horse for more fun

For lovers of sportiness, the brand also offers two very muscular finishes. First of all, the GT Performance finish, which offers a few additional elements such as brake ducts for better cooling or the presence of Recaro Performance seats. This will complement a range of equipment already very sporty and present on standard models such as the Torsen limited slip differential, the optional MagneRide active suspension, sports tires, and Brembo brakes.

Above all, a racing version of the Mustang, called Dark Horse, will be offered in the catalog. The latter is equipped with the 500 hp Coyote V8 engine, and has an aero pack specially developed for the model. The model features a Tremec 6-speed manual transmission and 19-inch Brembo brakes. This Dark Horse version introduces the brand’s future racing models, in particular the Dark Horse R, the American manufacturer’s future track racer par excellence.

Available in Europe?

This is the main question, will this new Mustang be available on the European market? For now, the brand has not communicated on the issue. But it is already almost certain that the V8 version will never cross the Atlantic, due to the very high penalties to be paid. It remains to be seen whether Ford intends to market the EcoBoost version on the Old Continent.

The brand could also offer a rechargeable hybrid engine in the coming months. This is only speculation, but it is certain that this new Mustang is primarily intended for the American market. Enthusiasts and lovers of the model will therefore have to wait.

Especially since Ford has not yet communicated the prices of its new Mustang.
