2016 Ford Mustang Release Date And Specs

Ford Mustang is one of the most legendary American muscle cars. It is produced since the sixties and it is ground breaking model for a new pony car class that was created afterwards. The 2016 Ford Mustang will remain pretty much
unchanged with only few tweaks and slight improvements after the 2015th model received redesigned looks and many more changes in interior and under the hood.

Not long time after release of the first Ford Mustang its rivals: Chevrolet Camaro and Plymouth Barracuda arrived. First Ford Mustang was based on the compact model called Ford Falcon. It was designed by John Najjar and Philip T.
Clarke. Its name came from fighter plane P-51 Mustang, since Najjar was a big fan of that plane. This car is one of the most popular cars in United States and its often seen in movies like: Diamonds Are Forever, Gone in 60 Seconds and
similar. Not long time ago spy photographers caught 2015 and 2016 Ford Mustang while testing on Nurbugring.

On Nurburgring spy photos we were able to see muscular styling of the new model with some additional aerodynamic add-ons, that didn’t come with earlier Mustang models. New generation comes with highly aggressive front splitter, flared
rear fenders and rocker panels. It also comes with new ultra fat tires, Michelin Pilot Super Sports that we can see on the new model are usually reserved just for performance oriented grand tourers. From everything we saw on these
photos we can say that the new model is going to be sportier than ever, and it might continue tradition of the old Boss 302 from 2013, which came only with manual transmission and was a real Mustang in its most pure form.

We could not see anything inside the cabin on these spy photos but soon after that we received official images, so we we are sure about interior design and features is going to come with this model. Cockpit-looking layout with each
passenger in the front row having its own personal space. Again, it will definitely come with a leather wrapped racy steering wheel and some nice Nappa leather upholstery. Same as with 2015th model we are amazed with all the hi-tech
that Mustang division is planning to install inside the cabin, and if you followed their work in previous years, you definitely know they are going to let us speechless.

Specs Of 2016 Ford Mustang

Performance is the most important section when it comes to pony cars. We could see that Ford engineers offered decent number of both naturally aspirated units abut also turbocharged EcoBoost engines. For those that are looking for top
of the line performance we think that V8 is a better candidate, but it will come with some changes to make it different from the similar Coyote V8 engine, seen in Mustang GT. It is going to come with higher redline and flat-plane
crankshaft. This engine is able to deliver 435 horsepower and it will be paired with manual transmission for sure, and maybe even some other transmission options will be offered like automatic or CVT.

Other units offered include 2.3 liter EcoBoost engine, 3.7 liter V6 and 3.5 liter EcoBoost model. For the 2016 Ford Mustang we are pretty sure that there will be at least few special editions which could bring even more powerful
engines and competitive performances.

2016 Ford Mustang Release Date

It is not that hard to guess the price of the new model. Same goes for its release date, but we expect the 2016 Ford Mustang is going to arrive in showrooms in the end of 2015. Its price will probably be higher than current $23,600,
which is the price of 2015 model. Most likely it will be only slightly higher but still under $24k for a coupe and convertible under $29,500.
