For the last 50 years, the Ford Mustang has been an iconic trendsetter in the automotive marketplace. There were a few years in the 1970s where it was an also-ran but most cars back then fell victim to the fashion faux pas that we see today.
Fast forward 30 years and we get a new, freshened Mustang with more aggressive styling and a more muscular demeanor than in recent years. The front end has a more integrated feel from side to side and the headlights flow into the quarter panels in a most pleasing way. The whole car looks more aerodynamic and has that “going fast while standing still” look that makes pony cars so desirable.
The rear end is more fastback than in recent years and the tilt of the tail lights hearkens back to late-60’s models but is still modern and totally sexy. The character lines running along the sides, top and bottom, give Mustang a more chiseled, muscular and lean look that tells you this car can handle itself.
as with any new offering, expect more power and better fuel economy with this new Mustang, including a new 300+ horsepower EcoBoost four-cylinder and a 420-horsepower V8 for the GT.
The interior is more flowing as well, with less angles and a softer look.
