The World Loves Mustang
Mustang’s impact goes well beyond the 10-million-plus cars sold in its 58 years of continuous production. It has made thousands of appearances in film, television, music and video games, and is the world’s most-liked vehicle on Facebook. Since the last all-new Mustang was introduced in 2014, Mustang has become the world’s best-selling sports coupe every year since.
The new coupe and convertible take Mustang’s athleticism to new heights, including upgraded hardware, software and tuning – plus a new Gen IV 5.0-litre V8 engine providing even greater response and performance. Driving responsiveness has been enhanced by reduced compliance from steering wheel to tyre, while a quicker steering ratio enhances the new car’s cornering dynamics. Rev-matching, which holds engine revs when the clutch is engaged to retain peak torque between manual gear changes is standard on GT, delivering even more precision and refinement, in what is the most track-capable Mustang ever.
Driver-Focused Immersive Digital Experiences
Behind the iconic exterior silhouette of the seventh-generation Mustang lies the most technologically advanced, driver-centric cockpit of any Mustang to date, combining the best of past, present and future. Most noticeable is the removal of Mustang’s traditional double-brow upper dashboard, making way for a flowing, glass-clad open centre stack, packed with technology.
Behind the new, thicker, flat-bottomed steering wheel sits a 12.4-inch digital instrument cluster, which can be customised to display different designs, and new, customisable, Drive Mode-dependent clusters, fresh for the new model. This digital instrument cluster flows seamlessly into a 13.2-inch SYNC 4 centre stack 4 behind the same piece of integrated glass, angled towards the driver. The ergonomic positioning of these screens provides clear visual information and easy-to-reach controls, which together create an immersive digital experience.
The latest B&O 7 sound system provides crisp audio through 12 speakers and a subwoofer, including the use of Ford’s Electronic Sound Enhancement technology to amplify engine sounds directly into the cabin.
Edgier Head-Turning Design with Timeless Mustang Cues
The seventh-generation adds a modern edginess to a heritage-inspired design, which sets out to appeal to the broadest Mustang customer demographic yet. The low, horizontal brow across the front of the signature three-section bonnet aligns with new LED headlamps to create a more impactful front-end, influenced by the original 1960s design and is optimised for pedestrian protection.
Its sleek roofline, broad sprinting stance and shortened rear overhang are also true to the authentic proportions of the first-generation, while the widened rear haunches point to the power over the wheels in true Mustang style. At the rear, an extended deck houses a new, edgy, signature tri-bar lighting and redesigned diffuser for improved aerodynamic balance. For the first time, each model in the all-new Mustang line up carries its own unique front end, allowing customers to choose the look that best suits their own personalities. GT, the heart of the Mustang brand, features larger grill openings engineered to allow increased airflow, reflecting the increase in power and performance. The car’s aerodynamics are optimised further with the addition of new bonnet vents and redesigned front splitter.
More Safety Features - More Technology
The seventh-generation coupe and convertible come equipped with next-generation Ford driver assistance features, like the Mustang Mach-E SUV, including Speed Sign Recognition, Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop & Go functionality, Lane Centring Assist, Evasive Steer Assist and Reverse Brake Assist.
Another key feature is Active Pothole Mitigation, which continually monitors suspension, body, steering and braking input and adjusts suspension response accordingly. Stolen Vehicle Services – a FordPass function providing 24-hour support in the event of theft – is also new to Mustang.
New Mustang Dark Horse Delivers Ultimate Track Capability
Debuting alongside the new Mustang GT is the Mustang Dark Horse, the ultimate expression of track capability and the foundation for the brand’s motorsport efforts. Building on the athleticism, edgier design and digital experiences of the seventh-generation Mustang, the Mustang Dark Horse series delivers the most track-focussed precision of any Mustang to date.
Mustang Dark Horse Leads Mustang's Return to Global Motorsport
The introduction of Mustang Dark Horse sets the foundation for Mustangs that will compete globally in a variety of series, including GT3, GT4 and NASCAR.
“We’re taking this all-new Mustang to competition racing and the very definition of a Mustang Dark Horse is the perfect fit to introduce this vehicle to the Mustang brand,” said Mark Rushbrook, global director, Ford Performance Motorsports. “With our race program development underway, we’re confident we have the right car for success.”
Mustang Dark Horse S is built uniquely for motorsports as a stripped-down version of the street-legal production vehicle. All non-essential parts and trim pieces have been removed, inside is a full FIA-certified safety cage, safety nets, a race seat with safety belts and a race steering wheel with quick disconnect.
