Ford Mustang unveiled at LA Auto Show
19 November 2008 15:50
This is Ford’s facelifted Mustang, or as it’s known Stateside, the 2010 Mustang. Unveiled today at the LA Auto Show, it’s a significantly revised version of today’s car with more V8 power, sharper looks, and still that live rear axle.
Tell me about the Ford Mustang’s new looks
Even the badge is redesigned on the new ‘Stang. So while the overall silhouette of the car remains the same, a creased bonnet, a larger front grille, slimmer headlamps and LED taillights help make the car look more lithe and muscular. Ford calls it ‘One Sinewy Steed’.
Ford claims these changes are also functional, helping to improve fuel economy, downforce and overall performance.
Is the interior any better?
‘Everything about new Mustang’s interior is first-class,’ says Peter Horbury, Ford's US director of design. ‘It’s a step improvement, like going from dial up to high-speed digital.’ Fords says the interior is significantly improved with soft-touch plastics and metal rather than plastic trim. CAR will be poking around the new ‘Stang later today so we’ll let you know how true that is.
The overall design of the dash has been tweaked, apparently to leave a clean and uncluttered area in front of the centre console for shifting that five-on-the-floor.
Inside the new Mustang you’ll also find Ford’s SYNC communication ad entertainment system and the switchable MyColor instrument dials package that lets customers choose from over 12 background colours.
