We are just over a couple of weeks away from attending the launch of the next generation of the Ford Mustang, and the desire to meet him is palpable in the environment. Even the brand itself seems impatient to show it to its enthusiasts, because it keeps letting teasers here and there.
Like for example one of his latest posts and Instagram where, taking advantage of the reminder of their presentation (September 14 during the ‘Mustang Stampede’) they have ‘sneaked’ a small fragment of how the new iteration of his well-known V8 ‘Coyote’ sounds.
There will be V8, yes, but for now only one
Said ‘voice’ seems to be exactly as one would expect: guttural at low revs and a unique show at the throttle. Pure roaring Detroit muscle once again, and with a tuning that confirms what could already be seen in the ‘spy videos’ of months ago.
The most complete of the latter, published in January by the motrolix youtube channel and attributed to the web Ford Authority, showed one of the pre-production units of the new Mustang going out for a test drive. And the sound of the engine it was the same thendespite mounting some bizarre silencers that predictably will have nothing to do with the definitive ones.
Because the camouflage of that prototype, which coincidentally is identical to that of the unit that is patiently awaiting its ‘unboxing’ in the Stampede, already revealed to us that his general appearance was definitive.
In this regard, a glance above makes it clear that the silhouette will be continuousalthough the widening of the rear track (a characteristic feature of the model) seems to be accentuated even a little more if possible.
Something that could change, if we attend to the rumors that have been emerging in recent times, would be the platform. Like the rest of the Ford brands, it also seeks to concentrate its range of chassis, which in the case of the new Mustang would lead it to base itself on the RWD C6the same as the Ford Explorer or the Lincoln Aviator.
As for the mechanics, in addition to the V8 5.0 (the usual ‘Coyote’) it seems certain that the V6 Ecoboost will also remain available as an access option, according to the words of Ford CEO Jim Farley in the statement a few days ago.
However, as stated some content creators who have already been able to closely observe the camouflaged specimen exhibited by the brand, other options in the eight-cylinder range (as usual 5.2) they seem discarded for now As for the hybrid option that has been rumored, there does not seem to be any new information that confirms or denies its existence.
Be that as it may, there is less left to meet without masks or dissimulations to the new generation of this popular ‘pony car’. Time will have to tell if it will become the last Mustang appreciated by puristsor if, on the contrary, the miracle will happen that it manages to retain its particular philosophy against the wind and the tide of the ‘eco’ regulations.
